This is a very good veggie dish I learned years ago at a school camp-out. It's easy to make and can also be made in the oven the same way.

    Advertisement
  • Combine all veggies in tin foil or foil baking bag. Season with desired amount of seasoning salt and top with butter. Seal foil well (you may need more than one bag, so the vegetables are done evenly).

  • Grill for approximately 40 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are soft (flip bags at least 3-4 times during grilling). Remove form grill and place the veggies in a large bowl and add the sour cream, mixing well.

My family use to make kind of the same thing we called it Hobo dinner and it was beef patty then potatoes and vegetables all put in a foil package then put on the barbecue. Each person had their own personal foil package meal. Read More

Super super good. I baked mine in the oven at 350F for around 50 minutes and it turned out really really well and tasted really really good. Read More

This is a great recipe but I altered it a bit. No butter or sour cream and added a bit more onion(individual tastes) I also "package" it into individual servings. I add a couple strips of bacon to each. When its done, I put shredded cheddar cheese on top and let it cook a few minutes longer until cheese is melted. I also don't separate veggies. We just ate it like it was cooked. Read More

This is a good side dish for BBQ chicken or ribs. The sour cream balances the spiciness of the meat. Nice. Read More

Excellent. I grew up on this but we didn't use carrots and we usually served it with sour cream and "bacon" bits. Extra-yummy with a little celery salt too! Thanks for the great reminder.:) Read More

In terms of "camping food" this is terrific! I also added chopped up mushrooms zucchini and green pepper (with extra butter/seasoning salt to account for more veggies) and left out the sour cream. It was a great grilled vegetable medley over some white rice. If you're wrapping this in sheets of foil like I did I'd make the wrapping atleast 3 layers thick because my first attempt got a little burnt. Read More

I've been making this for a long time but without the carrots. If you like cabbage try cutting some up and laying it down first. Then the onions maybe some peppers garlic cloves butter and potatoes. fantastic!!!! Read More
