Hobo dinners are the easiest thing in life.  And no clean up.  That's impressive.
You've probably made them before, or maybe you have forgotten about them so here I am bringing them to the front of your brains.

The best thing about these is you can change them up to utilize whatever ingredients you have on hand.

I happened to have carrots, frozen chicken tenders and red potatoes.  

I layer the dinners according to which ingredients cook the slowest.  So potatoes, then carrots and then the chicken.  Like so:


First though, I spray the foil with some oil so the food doesn't stick to it when it cooks.  

After layering I sprinkle on some:

Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Lemon pepper
and slice some butter on top.  Mmm...butter.

Double wrap your dinners.

After swaddling those babies I fire up the grill. (or oven if you prefer)   Then I shut the lid and forget about them.  No seriously, tonight I forgot about them.  Good thing my propane ran out and my little children (not the human ones) just sat there and steamed until I came to my senses.  But ideally you want to take them off when the carrots and potatoes are tender.  Check them after fifteen minutes or so. 


I didn't take a picture after they were cooked.  I guess we were hungry.  But they were gooood.  And you can use any spices you want.  Did I mention there is no clean up? Awe.some.  Hubby likes to eat them with BBQ sauce but I can't stand BBQ sauce so I eat them as is.  So there.

So how long do you cook them.. waiting until the propane doesn't help me :).

We grew up calling them foil dinners and only made them while camping. They are delish and I love your idea to put them on the bbq. I'm going to have to make these easy, yummy things, love new ideas, THANKS!

No donuts, no bbq sauce, no pizza, no nuts, no Edward...the list goes on and on.

I never thought about putting these on the grill. And the oven would work, too, wouldn't it. Our grill stinks.

We love these at our house. Seriously it's Luke's favorite meal. We do ours in the oven because our grill sucks too. WE have them at least once a week.
