Smoked turkey sausage, red potatoes and vegetable are mixed with herbs and sliced lemon, then wrapped in foil and grilled to perfection. These Sausage and Red Potato BBQ foil packs are an easy and tasty grilling treat. These foil packs are very versatile and can be filled with your favorite vege’s and spices. I was inspired to create these packs by a friend who made a version with shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob. I had a Hillshire Farms Smoked Turkey Sausage in the fridge and decided to create my own foil packs.
My boys are picky when it comes to food being mixed, so I generally don’t get away with cooking a meal in one dish; or in this case a piece of foil. However, the boys loved this dish and asked for seconds.
