Low Country Boil Foil Packets

by Aimee Stock

These Low Country Boil Foil Packets are so easy to make and packed with flavor. Baby red potatoes, yellow corn, smoked sausage, and green beans are combined in an easy foil packet that you can bake in the oven or throw on the grill. Feel free to add shrimp if you’d like! I really think you are going to love this one 🙂

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Corn on the Cob
  • Baby Red Potatoes
  • Smoked Sausage
  • Fresh Green Beans
  • Butter
  • Garlic
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lemons
  • Parsley
  • Peel and Eat Shrimp (OPTIONAL)

To ensure that everything cooks at the same speed, I par-boil the corn and potatoes. They won’t be fully cooked at this point and will finish in the oven. Remove to a plate.

Boiling corn and potatoes

I throw in the green beans to quickly blanch them. This locks in their bright color and gives them a head start on cooking. These need only 2-3 minutes. Remove to the plate with the other vegetables.

How to make the sauce

This is a good time to start the sauce and it’s incredibly simple. Melted butter seasoned with Old Bay, Paprika, Garlic, Salt, Pepper and Lemon Juice.


Distribute both the vegetables and the sauce evenly between the two foil pieces.

Adding sauce to foil packets

How to fold the foil packets

Bring the two long pieces of the foil together and fold into a seam. Then take both ends and fold several times to ensure they don’t leak.

You can flip once just before serving to redistribute the sauce or simply spoon it over after you plate the Low Country Boil. The meal can be served right from the packets! I high recommend a crusty bread for mopping up those flavorful juices.

Baking the Low Country Boil Foil Packets

If you have the grill fired up, feel free to throw these on it! I simply placed the sheet pan in the oven. Both work equally well. Be careful opening these – that liquid is boiling hot!

  • Wash baby red potatoes and add to boiling water.
  • Meanwhile, trim and wash green beans. Also, slice the sausage into 1" pieces.
  • Remove the potatoes and corn when just about tender. Add green beans just until they turn bright green.
