Inspired Wednesday - Smoked Sausage Foil Babies

A few weeks ago we made our favorite Foil Babies a new way - with smoked sausage - and it was definitely a winner here.  It's tasty but comes together in just minutes, and then you can hang out with your family while the grill does all the work.  

I'm looking forward to serving this when we have company or when there's a big game on TV.  It's hearty enough to please hard-working people but fresh enough for even the pickiest eaters.

And when dinner's over?  Throw away your foil packet, and voila! the dishes are done!

Here's how to make Smoked Sausage Foil Babies:


  • 1 package of smoked sausage, cut into thirds
  • 4-6 potatoes, washed and cubed
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 c. frozen lima beans
  • 1 c. frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1 1/2 c. carrots, washed and chopped
  • ice
  • 3 T. butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray or additional butter
  1. Tear two long sheets of foil.
  2. Spray foil sheets with cooking spray or coat with butter.
  3. Place half of the above ingredients on each piece of foil.  Be sure to add 2-4 ice cubes to each packet.
  4. Slice the butter and put a few pats on top of the veggies in each packet.
  5. Tear two more sheets of foil. 
  6. Line up the edges and fold them over twice to create a good seal on all sides.
  7. Grill at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  8. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.  Yum!

What's your favorite grilling meal?
