Cabbage and sausage are two ingredients that were definitely meant to be enjoyed together! Tender potatoes, smoky sausage, onion and sweet cabbage seasoned with garlic butter and all cooked in a tidy little packet on the grill!


  • 1 lb Polish sausage cut into 1 inch pieces (or your favorite smoked sausage)
  • 1/2 head of cabbage cut into 1/2″ wedges
  • 20 small potatoes quartered
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • garlic butter store bought or homemade
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 ice cubes


  • Preheat your grill to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut four 18 x 12 inch sheets of foil. Spray well with non-stick spray.
  • Divide the cabbage, potatoes and onion over the foil sheets.
  • Add 1 ice cube to each mound.
  • Evenly divide the sausage between the packets and top with garlic butter (1-2 tablespoons per packet), salt and pepper.
  • Seal each packet well and place on grill.
  • Grill for 50 minutes flipping from the packets every 15 minutes.
  • Allow to rest 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with sour cream if desired.

Recipe Notes

These can be baked in the oven at 425 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Potatoes sizes can vary, you’ll want just over 1 cup diced/cubed potato per serving. If you are concerned that your foil may leak, double wrap your packets.
