SAUSAGE GREEN BEAN FOIL PACKS — Smoked sausage, fresh green beans and potatoes are seasoned, wrapped in foil, and then grilled to perfection in this easy, crowd-pleasing dinner.
Foil pack dinners are one of our favorite things to make on the grill, and these Sausage Green Bean Foil Packs were a huge hit with my family.
I just love the convenience of wrapping an entire meal in foil and throwing it on the grill. And if you have picky eaters, you can let everyone create their own foil pack with just the ingredients they like.
Foil dinners are also great for camping. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sent my boys to Scout camp with a foil dinner!
I especially love using smoked sausage in tinfoil dinners, because it’s precooked, so I don’t worry at all about the meat getting cooked thoroughly. Which can be a really good thing when a 12-year old is making his own dinner over a campfire in the middle of the woods.
You can use just about any kind of potato in this recipe–russet, Yukon Gold, or red, for example. Just make sure to slice your potatoes pretty thin, so they are tender by the time the beans and sausage are ready.
Mushrooms, peppers and other veggies are also great additions to these foil packs. And with plenty of savory seasonings and that grilled, smoky flavor, the results are always amazing!
We make foil dinners are our grill year-round, but I especially love making them in the summer, so I don’t have to turn on my oven. And my husband usually does the grilling, so I don’t have to cook!
If you’re looking for something easy and fun to make for dinner–that won’t heat up your kitchen on a hot day–these Sausage Green Bean Foil Packs are a must try!

Tips for Choosing and Storing Green Beans
Appearance: Look for brightly colored beans that snap easily when bent. The skin should be smooth and tight. Avoid beans that have visible seeds and blemishes.
Size: When it comes to green beans, bigger isn’t necessarily better.” When beans too large or excessively thick, they can get get tough or stringy. You’ll also lose that sharp, fresh green bean flavor.
Storing: Keep unwashed green beans in a reusable container or plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper. Whole beans stored this way should keep for about seven days.
