Kielbasa In A Packet

I don't know why, but I loved this idea: All-In-One Meal wrapped in a foil packet! What could be simpler for college cooking than putting all your ingredients in a foil pouch and cooking (or grilling) everything for 5 minutes?


Dont stop reading! It really works! This is a terrific way to prep a meal, an individual meal for yourself, or multiple meals ready to go on the grill.  And, Kielbasa 'n Kraut is just one option.
