Turkey Sausage & Veggie Packets

Eat the rainbow in a snap. Feel free to substitute or add in your favorite veggies.  

4 large turkey or chicken sausages (look for specialty made at meat counter)
4 medium red potatoes
2 ears corn
2 cups broccoli florets
1 package mini tri-color bell peppers
½ large sweet onion, diced
3 T olive oil
2 T, each, fresh parsley and cilantro, finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Prepare packets before your trip. Cut the sausage into 1-inch-thick coins. Dice the potatoes into ¾-inch cubes and place in an extra large bowl. Cut the corn into 1-inch thick discs and add to the bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and toss until well combined. Tear 8 pieces of foil, about 1.5 feet long. Double layer the foil and divide the mixture evenly onto the foil pieces. Fold all sides of the foil shut to make a completely sealed packet. At campsite, heat the grill the medium. Cook for 20 minutes, turning once, until the veggies are charred and tender.
