Summer Sausage Hobo Packets

I love almost anything grilled, but this recipe that I found (taken from the August '08 edition of Taste of Home simple & delicious) is really good! I posted this awhile back on my private blog, but thought that I would share here.  We just went camping last weekend and we made up the packets before heading out.  Then we cooked them right over the fire.  So tasty.  Hope you enjoy! 

{Makes 8 Servings} Prep: 25 min. Grill: 20 min.


1 pound summer sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces

4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

3 cups shredded cabbage {I often just buy a bag of coleslaw mix}

1 large sweet onion, halved and sliced

1 medium green pepper, cut into strips

1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into strips

1 small zucchini, sliced

1 small yellow summer squash, sliced

1 pound chicken tenderloins, cut into 1-inch pieces {I almost always use cooked, shredded chicken, since I often have it on hand and then I don't have to worry about the chicken being cooked}

2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges

1/2 cup butter, cut into eight cubes

1/4 cup prepared Italian salad dressing


In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Gently stir in the chicken and tomatoes. Divide mixture among eight double thicknesses of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Top each with a butter cube.

Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Carefully open foil to allow steam to escape; drizzle with dressing. Yield: 8 servings.
