Sausage & Summer Vegetable Packets

If you had a chance to make our Camping Mini menu this month, you have seen our new obsession with “packet” recipes.  So quick and easy to throw in the oven, on the grill, or on the campfire.  Plus, cleanup is a breeze.  The flavor from the sausage blends so nicely with the vegetables in these packets.  Feel free to throw in any veggies from your garden as well!

    You know you can also put these packets on the manifold of your car engine while traveling? Wrap the packet in 3 layers of foil instead of just one (protects your engine in case of leaks!), put packet on the manifold of your car engine, and in an hour or two of driving, you have a hot meal. Pull over at a nice rest stop and pull out the oven mitts and a plate. Full directions in a book called ‘Manifest Destiny,’ a cookbook about cooking on your car engine. I have used this method on cross country driving trips a number of times.
