Hobo Packets

  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Small onion, diced
  • 2 large Potatoes, cubed
  • 2 large Carrots, sliced
  • 8 oz Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large Red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Tear off 4 large square sheets of aluminum foil. Drizzle all 4 foil aluminum square pieces with olive oil. Put 1/2 tbsp. of butter on each foil sheet.
  2. Place the potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and red peppers on top of the butter on each aluminum foil square.
  3. Evenly sprinkle minced garlic and diced onion over each of the four servings. Then sprinkle with kosher salt & pepper. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil.
  4. Fold up each of the sides of the foil squares, making a nice little bed for the ingredients so none of the butter and oil can escape while cooking.
  5. Grill packets for about 35-45 minutes. You can either grill them over a medium heat grill, or bake them in the oven at 350 degrees. Or if you really want to be authentic, heat them over a campfire with friends (and a harmonica!).

**Feel free to add a meat such as chicken or steak.
