Camp Recipe: Smoked Sausage, Potatoes & Green Beans


  • 1/2 pound New Potatoes, quartered (about 4 - 5 small potatoes)
  • 8 oz. Green Beans (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 4 - 5 Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound Smoked Sausage, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Red Pepper flakes to taste (optional)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Butter
  • 1/3 cup Water


  1. This recipe makes enough for 2 servings. Make 2, double-layer foil packets. Spray with non-stick cooking spray to keep things from sticking.
  2. Evenly divide all ingredients between both foil packets. Start each packet with a base layer of potatoes, then top with remaining ingredients. Season with the garlic powder, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to your liking.
  3. Top with slab of butter. Pour water into the bottom of the foil packet.
  4. Wrap and seal the aluminum foil. Leave room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks.
  5. Cook on hot coals for 15 minutes, flip about half-way through.
  6. Open with caution – there will be plenty of steam.
  7. Grab a fork and dig in!
