Foiled Treasure

In Recipes for the Grill by JHCadminLeave a Comment

I don’t know if it is "politically correct" to call them HOBO PACKETS anymore but a search of the Internet and my Cooking Books indicates that the name is still in use. This is a version that my mom always made and now I make it too. It’s easy, good, and combines your vegetable and starch into one dish-making grilling your full dinner easy.

You Will Need:

  • One 6"x6" square of foil for each serving
  • Diced up potatoes (buy frozen, plain hash browns for the quickest version)
  • Frozen, fresh (cut off stalk) or canned corn (drain)
  • Butter or margarine
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chopped (small) Peppers or Onions (optional) for a little spice


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Spoon mixture into center of foil squares.
  3. Fold or twist top ends of foil together.
  4. Place on grill for 20-25 minutes. They are done when the potatoes are soft.

Easy! And even the kids like them.
