I’ll be honest with you, sometimes I just don’t like to cook. Okay, it’s pretty much a rare occasion when I do but mostly because I don’t like all the cleanup involved. Now that summer is almost here and kids will be home all day I have to get smart with my cooking so I came up with a delicious Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner that also makes cleanup a breeze!

Aside from making this delicious dinner at home, it makes for the perfect camping dinner. Just throw everything together in tin foil, grill, and eat. Then toss the foil away when you are done. Easy peasy!

What You Will Need to Make a Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner:

  • Johnsonville Beddar with Cheddar Sausage (you can also use any of the grillers varieties)
  • Fresh Potatoes, Chopped
  • 1 Onion, Chopped
  • Carrot Chips
  • 1 Can of Corn
  • 1 Can of Pork Gravy
  • 1 Tablespoon of Butter
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Grill

How to Make a Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner:

  1. First start by cutting up your potatoes and placing them into a large bowl with the can of corn (drain the corn first), carrots, and seasoning. I just seasoned and mixed until there was enough seasoning on all of the vegetables.Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner Step1
  2. Remove the sausage from the package and slice them up. Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner Step2Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner Step3
  3. Use a large piece of aluminum foil to create a “pocket” of sorts to add the ingredients in. I doubled mine up so it wouldn’t rip when being grilled.
  4. Add the ingredients onto the piece of aluminum foil as shown below. You can also place a piece of butter on top for some added flavor.Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner Step4
  5. Now spoon some of the gravy on the top of the ingredients and then wrap up the aluminum foil so it’s entirely closed. Basically I made mine look like calzones so it was pinched together around the edges.Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner Step5
  6. Grill on medium heat for about 20-25 minutes. Once the potatoes are nice and soft you know everything is done.Sausage and Gravy Hobo Dinner Step6
  7. Remove from the grill and place onto a glass or heat safe plate. Open the foil, add a bit of shredded cheese to the top and enjoy your hobo dinner!
