Cut 4 large sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, each about 1 ½ feet long. Top each piece of foil with a slightly shorter piece of parchment paper. If you’ll be cooking over a campfire, make sure you’ve got some good hot embers established to cook over.
Egg, sausage and potato foil packspacks
About this recipe
Nothing will fuel your adventure better than this satisfying foil pack breakfast scramble with tender slices of potato and hearty chunks of plant-based sausage all brought together with the eggy goodness of JUST Egg.
Foil packs are the ultimate camping cooking hack because they require no dishes or cookware to make a delicious meal right on the fire. Trust us when we tell you it’s hard to screw these up. You can also swap in just about any ingredient – the possibilities are endless. When we make foil packets like this, we like to line the aluminum foil with parchment paper to avoid cooking directly on the aluminum, but this is optional.
Not hanging by the campfire tonight? You’re not missing out – you can also make these foil pack meals at home in your oven too. See the additional note in the recipe steps for oven instructions.

Fill with potatoes and sausagesausage
If you haven’t done this in advance (see note), chop the potato, red onion, red bell pepper, plant-based sausage and green onion as directed. Divide these ingredients between the 4 pieces of foil, making a low mound right in the middle. Pour about a teaspoon of cooking oil onto each and season with salt and pepper. Use clean hands or two spoons to give the mixture just a few stirs.
Note: You can pre-chop the ingredients at home up to 1 day in advance. Transfer to a plastic bag, coat liberally with the cooking oil and seasonings, and squeeze all the air out of the bag. Keep the mixture refrigerated or in a cooler until you’re ready to make the recipe.

Cook the packetspackets
Fold the packet in half by bringing the two shorter sides to meet and seal that edge. Fold up the other two sides to make a neat package. Place the foil packets on a grate over a campfire or on a grill and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Option to flip halfway through for more even browning.

Add the JUST EggEgg
One by one, remove the packets from the heat, open and check with a fork to see if the potatoes are cooked through. If so, pour ¼ to ½ cup of JUST Egg over the mixture. Reseal the foil pack and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes until the JUST Egg is set.
Oven directions: Preheat your oven to 400°F. Cook the potato mixture for 15 to 20 minutes, then an additional 8 to 10 minutes after adding the JUST Egg.
