It seems like I’m always fixing foil dinners for my boys to take to Scout camp. Then it dawned on me–you don’t need to go camping to enjoy a delicious meal like these Grilled Cajun Sausage Veggie Foil Dinners.

To say these foil dinners were a hit with my family would be a huge understatement. Four of devoured what I’m sure was enough food for six or seven people!

If you struggle to get your kids to eat vegetables, try serving them foil dinner-style.

My 12 year-old scarfed down veggies he would never touch under normal circumstances. In fact, he claimed he didn’t like corn until he tried this meal.

The great thing about foil dinners is that they are so versatile. So feel free to switch up the vegetables to your liking.

The potatoes and corn are favorites at my house, and mushrooms are another nice addition if you don’t have any picky eaters to feed.

I definitely recommend using the grill to cook these. The high heat ensures that everything cooks up quickly and evenly.

You can use an oven at about 400 degrees, but it will take almost twice as long to cook the potatoes, which means some of your other veggies will be overdone. The grill is definitely the way to go if at all possible!

And of course, if you’re concerned about these being too spicy, you can always cut back on the Cajun Seasoning or omit the jalapeno. Either way, these foil dinners are destined to become a family favorite!
