Lindsay at Perfecting the Pairing


  • 2 lb thin skinned potatoes (yellow or gold), cubed
  • 12 oz green beans, halved
  • 3 large shallots, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 pre-cooked chicken sausages, sliced
  • 4 Tb olive oil
  • 1, 1.0 oz, Ranch seasoning packet
  • 3 Tb butter, cubed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste


Preheat the grill to medium high heat.  Place the potato cubes in a large, covered, microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 6 minutes.  Make two foil packets by laying two pieces of foil perpendicular to each other, spray with cooking spray.  Add the green beans, shallots, garlic, and chicken sausage to the bowl with the potatoes.  Stir to combine.  Pour the olive oil and ranch seasoning over the mixture and stir to coat evenly.  Split the mixture between the two foil packets.  Top each with the cubed butter, season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.  Wrap up the foil packets tightly closing any vents.  Place on the hot grill and cook for 30-45 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through and lightly browned.
