We had a large gathering of family at the lake late in the summer. Guests helped themselves to a handy buffet, that included Grill Packets, and we all enjoyed eating together at one very long table while the sun started to go down.
Pick-Up Perfect Grill Packet
Recipe includes ingredients for one grill packet. Adjust for the number of serving needed.
Toss potatoes in oil on a large baking sheet with salt and pepper. Roast in 400° oven for 15 minutes.
Use a 12″ square of heavy duty foil for each person. Layer potatoes, corn, onions, peppers, shrimp and top with sausage on foil square. Placing the potatoes on the bottom and ending with the sausage seems to be the best way to assemble as the potatoes form a nice base and as the packet is cooking the sausage seems to baste and flavor the vegetables and shrimp. Drizzle with olive oil (or pat of butter) and sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper.
Wrap tightly to seal in steam and juices. Place packets on hot grill in a single layer and grill for 15 minutes.
Serve packets individually. Let the guests open and enjoy.
