Sausage Tin Foil Dinner
Recipe type: breakfast, brunch, lunch
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 package small breakfast sausages (20-24 pkge)
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced into ¼ inch coins
  • 3 large yellow potatoes, peeled and sliced into ¼ inch slices
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 slices bacon, uncooked
  • salt and pepper
  • heavy duty tin foil
  • cooking spray
  1. Cut or rip 4 pieces of tin foil about twice as long as the food (approx. 18 inches)
  2. Bottom layer: Spray foil with cooking spray and in the middle of each sheet place 3 sausages in a row or triangle.
  3. Sprinkle on some potatoes, carrots and onions. Spread out just a little. Lay one piece of bacon across the veggies.
  4. Top layer: place 2-3 more sausages on top, evenly distribute the rest of the potatoes, carrots and onions over all four packages. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Start wrapping your packets by bringing the long sides together in the centre, folding down as you go. Make fold tight against the food.
  6. Tightly roll up the shorter ends until it touches food.
  7. Double wrap. Wrap the packet in a second piece of tin foil exactly as you did the first one.
  8. Cook over coals, not direct fire, flipping every 15 minutes or so. Cooking time will vary depending on your heat source. I tend to cook longer and open one pack regularly to check progress.
  9. When done, pull out a paper plate, remove first layer of foil and toss. Open second layer of foil, peel back, place on paper plate to avoid drips and enjoy.
