When I have helping hands in the kitchen, I need simple to prepare recipes and kiddo friendly flavors. These Sausage & Potato Grill Packets were easy to prepare, quick on the grill, and enjoyed by all. And, the best part, no pans to wash!
It’s not often enough when I have my little helpers in the kitchen. All of my grand babies love to help and I love having them alongside me! I’m down staying in our little “home away from home” condo in Santa Barbara for a few weeks, which happens to be where my oldest daughter and her family live. Lucky me, two grand babies in the same town!!
B & G were eager helpers and loved practicing their knife skills. Gigi, who’s 4, wasn’t quite tall enough, and since I don’t have a little stool, she decided that sitting “criss-cross applesauce” on the counter would work perfect! She kept telling me, “Nana, I can’t believe you let me use a real knife!” Don’t worry, I had my eyes on her the entire time. B, who spends a lot of time in the kitchen, cooking with his Dad, is actually turning into quite the little foodie!
After cutting, chopping, and shredding, we were ready to assemble. I think B got focused on sports on the TV, so Gigi and I did the assembly. She was so proud of her own grill packet, especially the amount of cheese that she topped it with.
After assembling each packet, wrapping each securely in foil, it was time to grill. G & B wanted their own packets, so we made three. One for G, one for B, and one large one for the adults.

The potatoes, onions, and bell peppers were perfectly tender, the sausages steamy hot, and just look at all the ooey gooey melted cheese!!

Great pics. Reminds me when my Grandmother cooked. I was her helper. From pies,jelly, bread cobblers, and more every thing was homemade. And tasted better! A lot of love went into cooking and teaching back then. I still cook and remember Gram every time I smell homemade freshness.

Oh wow this looks wonderful, I may have to make up a special batch of sausage to go with this, thinking leak and paprika so it will play off nicely with the cheese and peppers, lovely recipe!
We love potato sausage dinners at our house. This one looks delicious! I’m getting hungry!
