Written by: Grace Burton, MS, RDN, LDN

 

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients

4 chicken sausage links, sliced into ¾ inch pieces
1 pound brussels sprouts, halved
12 ounces butternut squash, peeled and diced in ¾ inch pieces (~3 cups)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 sprigs fresh thyme
Salt & pepper to taste
Non-stick aluminum foil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sausage, brussels sprouts, butternut squash, thyme, and olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Make the foil packets. Tear off 4-18” sheets of aluminum foil.
  4. Divide the sausage and vegetable mixture among the 4 packets, about 2 cups each. Make sure the food is centered on each foil sheet.
  5. Bring up the long sides of the foil, so the ends meet over the food.
  6. Double fold the ends, leaving room for heat to circulate inside.
  7. Double fold the short ends to seal the packet tight.
  8. Bake 25 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Nutrition Tip:

This perfect fall meal is a good source of protein, fiber, and nutrients. It is easy to make, and can even be made ahead of time for those busy weeknights. Place uncooked foil packets upright in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and just follow the same directions for oven temperature and bake time.
