Sausage, Potato and Green Bean Foil Packets

Sausage and veggies packed in easy foil packets. Perfect for camping or a quick dinner! Can be baked/grilled.

I have never been a fan of green beans. Like ever. I wouldn’t touch it with a 10-ft pole.

Except if you throw it in a foil packet with sausage, potatoes, mushrooms and cajun seasoning – you won’t know what hit me. Green beans instantly become my best friend.

I’m not sure what it is but green beans suddenly do not taste like green beans in these foil packets. They taste like gold. No joke. And your picky eaters might say the same.

Sausage, Potato and Green Bean Foil Packets

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Sausage and veggies packed in easy foil packets. Perfect for camping or a quick dinner! Can be baked/grilled.


  • 1 (12.8-ounce) package smoked andouille sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved
  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 4 teaspoons cajun seasoning, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill over high heat.
  2. Cut four sheets of foil, about 12-inches long. Divide sausage, potatoes, green beans, mushrooms and onion into 4 equal portions and add to the center of each foil in a single layer.
  3. Fold up all 4 sides of each foil packet. Add butter, cajun seasoning, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Fold the sides of the foil over the sausage, covering completely and sealing the packets closed.
  4. Place foil packets on the grill and cook until just cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.*
  5. Served immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

*This can also be baked for 18-20 minutes at 425 degrees F.

My husband and I loved this-we licked the plate clean! It’s important to spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray to ensure the food doesn’t stick. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing Chungah 🙂

What if you have a vegetarian child? Can tofu be substituted?

You can omit the sausage.

I love tofurkey sausage! It comes in several flavors; I plan to use it for this recipe.

This is so good! I make this recipe about twice a month. I use canned green beans (2 cans) and sauté the green beans in a little olive oil with fresh minced garlic (4 or 5 cloves – we love garlic). I then add the green beans with oil and garlic on top of the sliced onions (I use 2 onions), potatoes and smoked sausage and roast in a roasting pan at 425 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring a couple of times. I also omit the water and do not cover the pan. I tried this method and it seemed to steam the dish and we like ours browner and caramelized. Thanks Chungah for a very awesome dish.

Fresh green beans are very tasty, trim the ends then proceed. You will retain more nutrients when using fresh.

Can this recipe be frozen before or after baking?

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

How long should I cook this if I’m dg it in the oven instead of grill?

This can be baked for 18-20 minutes at 425 degrees F.

I have tried cooking this in the oven for the allotted time, however the vegetables were not close to being done. Did I do something wrong?

Stef, this can really depend on a range of factors – the size/thickness of your ingredients as well as the temperature of your oven. If your oven is not regularly calibrated, chances are your oven’s temperature is not accurate. You may set it to 400 degrees, and it may tell you it’s at 400 degrees, but your oven might be off by just a little, maybe 10 degrees or maybe even as much as 100 degrees. I recommend investing in an oven thermometer to see what is really going on in your oven.

I’ve made this many times, and I’ve found it takes about 30 minutes consistently to cook thoroughly in an oven. And, yes, my oven’s temp is recently and properly calibrated.

This is the one i seen ever like before tooo spicy mix filled with Greens

Have you ever tried this on an indoor grill?

I actually haven’t – sorry!

We do a lot of grilling during the summer and I’ve been wanting to do more foil packs. This is the perfect place to start. It’s a great looking dish! Can’t wait to try it!

What a delightful dish! To the grocery store!

Looks amazing! Do you melt the butter before you mix it in with the veges and sausage? Just wondering how you spread it around.

There’s actually no need to melt the butter – it will melt and spread on its own as it cooks through. Easy, right? 🙂

I love all your recipes. But it’s even better when you post something new with stuff I already have in fridge! Thanks for the wonderful recipes and I can’t wait till your cookbook is out!

This was very good! However….WAY too salty. The Cajun seasoning was SUPER salty. Also, in the oven, it took much longer than 18-20 minutes! It was closer to 45 for the potatoes to be cooked. I will definitely make this again, this time with less Cajun seasoning and more paprika.

Yes, we also had that experience – I used Creole seasoning with salt and pepper but now that we know we like it, I’ll prepare for our camping trip with fresh carrots, instead of frozen green beans. It took 40 minutes to cook so I think the carrots will be perfect! Thank you…

We loved it. I did mix the 4 servings separately before adding to the foil. I cooked it in the oven, and it took about 40 minutes for potatoes to be cooked. Will definitely make again. Thanks so much for your wonderful recipes!

The andouille sausage I found was raw– should I cook it first, or slice raw? I guess I originally thought it’d be like smoked kielbasa- but I actually found it near the raw Italian sausages…..

Andrea, the packaged andouille sausage should already be fully cooked but if yours is raw, it may be best to cook it first. But as always, please use your best judgment.

Thank you! I’m guessing pan fry?

This is a great, easy recipe. If you use a light butter spread it’s only 6 Weight Watcher smart points. 11 points if you use real butter which is always better, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. 🙁

What can I substitute for the mushrooms? I am afraid nobody in my house will eat it when they see those?

You can actually omit as needed.

YUM! This was an awesome meal! Fast & delicious!

Made this tonight….Deelish!! My mil can’t do spicy so I only used a couple shakes of Cajun spice, still yummy! Would definitely make again.

I’m going to try these for camping next week! Double wrap in foil and toss them in the hot coals of the fire.

Did it work camping? Michelle 🙂

Can I toss some shrimp in? We love this recipe! It is a favorite in our house. I was just thinking of ways to kick it up a notch.

What can I substitute if I don’t have Cajun seasoning?

You can actually make it right at home using pantry spices!

This was amazing, and so easy! I roasted in the oven and added red bell peppers to the mix. My 20-month old kiddos apparently love mushrooms?! Thanks for the recipe.

The flavor was GREAT but after 25 mins of cooking in oven at 425, my veggies were still basically raw! Potatoes were still very firm and almost impossible to eat. What did I do wrong?!

Bailey, I recommend using smaller-sized potatoes to ensure that the potatoes are completely cooked through.

My family LOVES this meal. We have it at least twice a week. So simple to make. For those having issues, I put in my oven at 425 for 40 minutes.

We heat with wood and make these right in the woodstove! My husband’s favorite, and probably the closest I’ll ever get to camping 🙂 Burn the stove down to coals, 10 minutes per side.

Made this for the first time the other night, absolutely delicious. My husband, who is a very picky eater, said that this was the best thing I have ever made. I will say, I used salted butter instead of unsalted and it was a huge mistake; way too salty! Though my husband was in love, I will not be making that mistake again. Also, out of the four packets, two of them got a little burnt at the bottom when on the grill. Just make sure to watch carefully when cooking on there so you don’t ruin any part of the delicious meal!

If doing in oven, can I just put it all in casserole dish?

If baking in the oven, do you put foil packets directly on oven rack, or on a baking sheet?

I recommend using a baking sheet so it’s easier to pull out.

My husband made these Sunday night and they were wonderful! He added asparagus and mushrooms to his.

We prepped and made these for our camping trip this weekend. They were SO GOOD! We have plenty leftover so we are making it again at home tonight!

We are camping this weekend and want to try this recipe. We will be putting the foil packets on the fire did you have to precook potatoes or green beans prior or did it cook through okay on the fire? I will get orecooked meat or cook ahead but was concerned about the other items.

Is there a non-spicy sausage substitute for this recipe? I love cajun seasoning, but I’m afraid andouille sausage will be too spicy for me!

Yes, absolutely. Any other variation of sausages can be substituted.

INCREDIBLE. Thank you for this; an absolute hit! This will become a staple 🙂

How do you prep this before hand if you are taking them on a camping trip?

You can prep these in foil packets ahead of time and keep them cool/refrigerated until they are ready to be used.

Not a fan of the smoked andouille sausage can we substitute the Al Fresco Chicken Sausage? Can’t wait to try it camping this weekend.

Yes, of course. What a great idea!

Can I substitute oil for the butter? And if I am putting this on a campfire do I need to precook the potatoes and green beans?

The recipe doesn’t specify whether to precook the potatoes but they definitely should be. Potatoes roasted from raw take at least half an hour to cook through. Very yummy tho. I will be adding this to my menus at home. Thanks!

Love these super yummy and simple recipes. I happen to have a very picky family and I didn’t wanna deal with what packet had what, and which was who’s so I decided to add foil to a larger baking pan. I tossed everything in there and covered with more foil. Then everyone dug in. I do wish I had boiled the potatoes first only for about 5 minutes. They took longer to be totally done. Oh, and I did add a few more veggies I had on hand. Very simple and delicious.

I ran across this recipe when prepping for a camping trip. I made them ahead of time and I’m sure glad I did! By the time we got to the campsite and set everything up, we were wiped out…and it was dark. Luckily, I had these packets ready to use. We put them on the grate over the fire and in about 15 minutes, they were ready. Now I’m trying them at home but in a skillet. Thanks for the healthy, easy recipe!

could you cook these in the slow cooker

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

EXCELLENT! I only used olive oil. Boiled the potatoes for at least 5 minutes. I fried up the sausage, onion, mushrooms until done. Seasoned all. I then added all together with my garden fresh frozen beans. Cooked for 35 minutes at 350

Great dish but next time will make adjustments. 1st of all the dish as listed is HOT, spicy. I used beef smoked sausage (not andouille) and half the Cajun seasoning and it was still pretty warm. Next time I will use larger pieces of foil and I will most definitely cook at least 45 min, as necessary for veggies to be cooked well. Will definitely repeat though! Yum!

When cooking this dish in the oven, should I still use aluminum foil to separate packets?

This foil packet meal was quite tasty and easy. I prepared it the day before a camping trip, refrigerated overnight, and tossed it in the cooler as we were leaving. I used regular smoked sausage as the only available in the local Publix was hot & spicy Cajun-style (likely a bit too spicy for my 10 y.o.). I was able to find tiny baby red potatoes so I didn’t need to quarter them and I also used Haricot Vert instead of regular green beans. I mixed it all in a bowl along with some minced garlic and a good drizzle of EVOO then divided among the heavy duty foil strips (double wrapped). We grilled on open charcoal campsite grill for about 30 minutes. Delicious! Thanks for a great recipe.

Thank you for sharing with us!

Just wanted to check — do the potatoes need to be cooked or boiled before putting them in the foil packets with the other ingredients?

If you plan to use large potatoes, then yes, they should be parboiled ahead of time. But if the potatoes are cut small enough, they should cook through in the allotted time without parboiling.
