What ingredients do I need to make Sausage Broccoli Cheddar Foil Packs?

  • Sausage: Smoked sausage, Andouille Sausage, or Kiabosa all work well. Just check the carbs.
  • Broccoli
  • Cheddar Cheese

How do you make Sausage Broccoli Cheddar Foil Packs on the grill?

  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill to high heat, about 400 degrees.
  2. Cut 4 (12×12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil.
  3. Fill each foil pack with 2 cups of broccoli and 1 cup of chopped sausage.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bring up 2 sides of foil so the edges meet. Seal edges, making a tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion.
  6. Place packs on a grill, and cook for 7 minutes. Flip foil packs and cook for 7 more minutes.
  7. Carefully open packs and sprinkle each pack with 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Using tongs tent the foil pack over the foil pack allowing the cheese to melt. Cook for 2-3 more minutes and remove from heat.

How do you make Sausage Broccoli Cheddar Foil Packs in the oven?

Do I have to use the foil packs in the oven?

Short answer, no! The foil packs give you perfectly tender, steamed broccoli, but you can also put these ingredients on a baking sheet for crispy roasted broccoli instead.

If using the sheet pan method, I recommend waiting until the last 6 minutes of cooking to add the cheese so that it’s nicely melted, not overcooked.
