Cabbage and Sausage Foil Pack Dinner

Foil packet dinners are easy to prepare and clean-up, and are not just for camping; they can be baked in the oven year-round.  Cabbage and sausage were meant to be paired, and here is a simple and tasty way to serve them up for dinner tonight.

  • 1/2 small head cabbage, cut into 3/4" or 1" wedges
  • 1 pound farmer sausage, sliced (or your favorite smoked sausage)
  • 20 nugget potatoes, cut in half 
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • garlic butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Prepare 4 pieces (12" x 18") of heavy-duty foil.
  3. Divide cabbage wedges, potatoes and sausage slices evenly on the four pieces of foil.
  4. Top each mound with a dollop of garlic butter and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Seal each packet well.
  6. Bake for 1 hour, or until veggies are tender. 
Serves 4


  1. Please when you cook with foil packs... line it with parchment... then foil... to prevent aluminum entering the foods... why? for the same reason we don't use aluminum cookware any more... aluminum 'pits' especially with acids

  2. I would be inclined to add actual garlic cloves as hubby loves garlic rather than the garlic salt :) Thanks for another great recipe!

  3. I'd love this, but for me four servings would be four single meals. I wonder if the packets will freeze well, or should I just forget that.

    Separated (shoulder)

    1. That's the beauty of making individual packets...make one or make four. If you are cooking for one...just make one packet.

  4. Would you be able to use other vegetables like carrots, Brussel sproats, cauliflower or broccoli?

  5. Would you be able to substitute the cabbage for different vegetable?

    1. I'm sure you can use whatever veggies you choose. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out.

  6. I am playing some catch-up with blog posts; we have had visitors for nine days! Now that we are retired, we are going to start doing more camping, and so this is a great suggestion for at home and on the road! I also like the look of the spaghetti squash and WOW cookies - I better get in the kitchen!!! Have a great weekend!

  7. I love cabbage and sausage...I will try this easy recipe...thanks

  8. This was delicious and the whole family liked it. I didn't have a cabbage but I had a bag of cole slaw mix so I sprinkled it into the dish. Worked great.
