Sausage Potato Campfire Packets: Camping Food

Camping Week continues today these easy to make Sausage Potato Packets. We started the week with the Breakfast Hobo Pies and today we’re going to share an easy campfire recipe. These Sausage Potato Campfire Packets are super easy to throw together and cooking is simple, you don’t even need a pan.

With just a few simple ingredients you can toss together these Sausage Potato Foil Packets! They are perfect for camping or even grilling a quick weeknight meal!

Now I know the name says sausage but a better name might have been 3-sausages, we’re adding 3 types to this meal. The only trick is to be sure you get uncooked sausage, so that the potatoes and sausage cook evenly at the same time. We used Italian Sausage, Brats and Cheese filled Brats.

Combining all these flavors together means that you don’t need to add a whole lot of seasonings, they’re already in the sausage, however we did add a couple tablespoons of olive oil and Kosher salt. Let’s finish off the meal with some onions and baby potatoes… yes I’m a meat and potato kind of guy.

Foil Packets with Sausage and Potatoes

Now I said they’re simple to put together so let me tell you how, you start by chopping all the ingredients into bite size pieces, and toss them into a very large bowl. Then drizzle a couple tablespoons of olive oil and add just 2-3 teaspoons of kosher salt and mix them all together. Grab a roll of aluminum foil and tear off about 12 inches (be sure to use 2 pieces per packet) and then add a big spoonful of the sausage and potatoes.

Then you’ll need to fold the foil to make the packets. Fold over the top and ends then onto the grill or campfire. Cook for 15-20 minutes over medium-high heat and enjoy.

  1. If I bake these in the oven, what temp and time would I use? If you know?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Myssi, you could bake the packets at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
      Thanks for stopping by! Let us know if you have other questions.

  2. Can you pre chop this the day before? Do potatoes brown if not cooked right away?

    • Hi Heather, Unfortunately potatoes do brown if not cooked right away so the best course is to chop them prior to cooking. Just a quick wash, no need to peel them and a rough chop. It goes really quick.
