Casa M Pickled Onion Foil Packs
At Casa M Spice Co®, we know the value of a home cooked meal and spending time with family. We also know it’s tough to find time for both. That’s why we bring you recipes that are simple and easy to prepare, so you can enjoy more time with the people that are most important to you.
This recipe brings back some of the best memories of camping, sitting around the campfire, surrounded by nature. The foil pack is a quick and easy way to prepare a meal when you only have what you can carry to the campsite. These foil packs can be made beforehand and thrown in an oven or cooked at the campsite, tucked in with the hot coals. The foil holds in the steam while everything cooks together, enhancing every flavor in the process.
In these foil packs, we use our Casa M Pickled Red Onions (find the recipe here) along with Casa M Spice Co® Whole Hog® seasoning to bring out the sweet and savory flavors of Italian sausage and fresh sweet corn.
We cannot wait to hear from you after you make this recipe. We know you are going to love it!
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice

LET’S GET COOKING
Prepare the corn by cutting each ear into 4 pieces. In a pot with cool water, add the corn, bring to a boil and once it reaches that boil, cook for 5 more minutes. Corn will be halfway cooked and will continue the cooking process in the foil pack.
After cutting the potatoes, place them into another pot with water and bring to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, cook for 7 more minutes. Potatoes will be almost cooked through and will continue cooking in the foil pack.
While waiting for the corn and potatoes to cook, lay out your aluminum foil, cut into 20-inch lengths. For this recipe, 4 of them.
Distribute the sausage chunks, red peppers, corn, and potatoes evenly onto the 4 squares of foil.
Add ½ Teaspoon of thyme, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, ½ Teaspoon Casa M Spice Co® Whole Hog® to each foil pack. Add 2 Tablespoons Casa M Spice Co® Pickled Red Onions (or more to taste). Add some of the pickling juice from the onions for added flavor!
Create a foil packet by bringing the bottom and top ends together and folding them. Then fold the sides up and over creating a packet. If you will continue the cooking in a campfire, we suggest using a double layer of foil.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes
- Grill for 25 minutes. Give the foil a little shake every once in a while.
- Tip: You can make these ahead and refrigerate for up to 48 hours!
