Sausage, Peppers, & Onion Foil Packets

Sausage Peppers and Onion Foil Packets
20 Min

Sausage, peppers, and onions are a state fair-food favorite, but they aren't always the healthiest choice. That's why we came up with this diabetic-friendly version that satisfies your cravings without ruining your diet. Our Sausage, Peppers, & Onion Foil Packets are easy to make (in the oven or on the grill!) and deliver lots of flavor!

What You'll Need

  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 (13-ounce) package smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium spaghetti sauce

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut 4 (12-inch) squares of aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine red and green bell peppers, onion, garlic powder, and black pepper; toss until evenly coated. Divide vegetable mixture evenly onto center of each piece of foil.
  3. Place sausage slices evenly on vegetables. Spoon spaghetti sauce evenly over sausage and vegetables. Wrap foil securely, leaving room for steam to circulate; seal edges tightly. Place packets on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Open packets carefully, as steam may be released. Serve immediately.


  • If you'd like, you can sprinkle each serving with a little bit of reduced-fat, shredded mozzarella cheese right before serving (not calculated in nutritional information). 
  • This makes a great grilling recipe too! To make it on the grill, just preheat your grill to medium-high heat, place packets on the grill, close the grill cover, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think the size of the foil is incorrect in this 4(2") sguares??? most likely should be 12"

Hi there! You are correct! The recipe has been updated to reflect 12-inch squares. Enjoy!
