Foil Packet Sausage and Peppers

Serves: 4
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


1 large link smoked kielbasa, sliced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 poblano pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 hoagie rolls, split


If cooking indoors, heat the oven to 450 degrees. If cooking over a campfire, light a fire.

Tear off eight large sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil, approximately 18 inches, and stack into four double-sided sheets. Divide sausage, peppers and onions between each piece of foil and place into a pile in the center. Drizzle each pile with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Top each pile with 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce and ¼ teaspoon each of oregano and red pepper flakes. Bring the edges of the foil together to form a tight seal and gently flatten.

Place packets on a baking sheet and cook until vegetables are soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Alternatively, if cooking over an open fire, place packets directly into the fire and cook for 5 minutes. Flip packets over and cook until vegetables are soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Open each packet and fill a hoagie roll with the sausage mixture. Serve.
