Hobo Potatoes

I'm not sure where the name for these came from, I have to assume it is because of the fact we are cooking them in a foil pouch. These potatoes make a quick side dish because you start the cooking process in the microwave and end in a foil pouch on your grill.

I really like the combination of flavors in this the onions, carrots and celery all add so much to the potatoes so it is a nicely balanced dish. And the addition of bacon according to my son makes it perfect, I swear that boy would eat anything if I put bacon it though. LOL

Hobo Potatoes

2 cups cubed, peeled potatoes
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
½ sliced celery
2 Tablespoons water
½ teaspoon water
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 slices cooked, chopped bacon
2 Tablespoons butter

In a medium size bowl combine the potatoes, onions, carrots, celery and water. Cover and cook on high for 5 to 6 mimutes just until the vegetables start to cook. Drain and season with salt and pepper and stir in the bacon.

Cut a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil about 18”x18”
Place potato mixture on foil and fold up to form a closed pouch. Be sure to leave a bit of air space.

Immediately place on a medium hot grill and cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Be careful of the steam when opening the foil pouch.
