Ingredients

  • 1/2 head cabbage
  • 1 pound potatoes * I use small golden potatoes
  • 1 shallot * sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 sausage links * variety of your choice
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • fresh parsley * optional, garnish

Instructions

  • You will need 4 pieces of aluminum foil, each about 2 feet long. Preheat your grill to 325-350°F (or medium heat).
  • Cut the head of cabbage in half and then one of the halves into quarters (save the other half for another use). Cut each quarter into approximately 1-inch chunks and place onto the center of each sheet of aluminum foil.
  • Dice the shallot and evenly distribute it over the 4 piles of cabbage. Mince the garlic and add that evenly to each packet, as well.
  • Cut the potatoes into bite size pieces and divide them evenly among the packets. Season each packet with salt and pepper.
  • Slice each sausage link into 8 pieces. Scatter them on top of the packets. Top each packet with 1 Tablespoon of the butter.
  • Fold the long edges of the foil over the ingredients, and tightly roll up the sides.
  • Place the foil packets on the grill and cook for about 15 minutes. 
  • After 15 minutes, open a packet and check the potatoes for fork tenderness. If needed, heat an addition 2-5 minutes, but watch closely as to not burn the cabbage.
  • See notes section for how to bake in the oven.
