Usually, a quick grilled dinner at our house consists of some burgers or dogs, with a side and a salad. But sometimes, I like to throw together a just-as-easy meal-in-a-packet, like these grilled kielbasa dinner packets. Everything’s in there. Just assemble (you can put them together the night before) and toss onto a grill over medium heat until the vegetables are tender. Adding rosemary really takes this from a rather mundane dish to something a little more special. Next time, though, I’m adding chopped bell pepper or poblano for a little crunch.
If you’re looking to cook up a great breakfast in a packet try my lumberjack breakfast packets.
