Vegetable Hobo Dinners

Recipe by 49flavours

These pouch dinners are traditionally made with ground beef while camping, but this vegetable version is a big hit when added to the grill during a cookout. It's very easy and inexpensive to make a delicious and healthy side dish that will feed a large crowd. The fun part is that you can add a little more or less of any ingredient, or even substitute completely.

I made two versions of this tonight, with mushrooms and without. These delicious little packets were enjoyed by everyone. Thank you for posting. Made for My Three Chefs June 2012

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. TIP: Chop the vegetables in sizes that relate to how quickly they cook. For example, chop the carrots smaller than the mushrooms.
  2. Poke holes in the potatoes with a fork. Wrap each potates individually in a paper towel and microwave them together for 4-5 minutes before peeling and chopping.
  3. Make 4 large aluminum foil pouches by folding the foil in half and then rolling the sides over at least 3 times. Add one fourth of each ingredient per pouch. Roll the top over to seal tightly.
  4. Place the pouches on a hot grill and carefully turn and rotate every 5-10 minutes until all of the vegetables are soft or about 25-30 minutes. Leave the pouches closed until you are ready to serve.
