In this post I’m going to show you how to cook brussels sprouts in a foil packet.
It’s super easy and results in an amazing brussels sprouts side dish!
How to Cook Brussels Sprouts in a Foil Packet
As promised in my last post for Sesame Salmon & Snap Peas, I am now presenting you with the second half of my scrumptious dinner.
I found these recipes in my Hungry Girl To The Max! The Ulitmate Guilt-Free Cookbook.
This recipe is another super easy, foil pack recipe, called Hustle ‘N Brussels Pack Attack.
How cute is that name?
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it
Now most people I know stay as far away from brussels sprouts as physically possible, my son included.
However, they are so good for you and actually a very satisfying and tasty veggie to include in your diet.
A quick little story about me and brussels sprouts:
When I first met my husband, I wanted to find out certain things about him to find out if we were compatible enough to sustain a good relationship.
I went through my mental list:
- Does he love the Redskins? Check!
- Is family important to him? Check!
- Does he ride a motorcycle? Check!
- Do we have chemistry? Check!
- Does he have good morals and a good work ethic? Check!
The list goes on and on, but one thing that was an important item was: Does he like brussels sprouts?
And the answer was yes!
A match made in Heaven!

As with my other foil-pack recipe, this one was so easy to make and so tasty to eat.
I served it as a side dish with my Sesame Salmon & Snap Peas.
The bottoms of the potatoes and Brussels sprouts browned a little bit, so they had that roasted taste to them.
So you say you don’t like brussels sprouts?
Have you ever tried them?
Do me a favor and just try them, especially in a recipe like this one.
I’m happy eating them steamed with some salt and pepper on them.
But if you dress them up a little bit like in this recipe, you might find that brussels sprouts have gotten a bad rap for no good reason!
This might even be your favorite new veggie!
