As a busy mom, Easy Hobo Dinner is one of my favorite ways to cook!  The mess is confined in pouches of foil and each person's meal can be customized to just how they like it so that there should be no complaining at meal time! Super easy to put together and super easy to clean up! My family loves it too so it's a win-win for all.

For this one I chose to make hamburger patties and use sliced sausages with sweet potatoes, corn and banana peppers.  We were out of jalapenos but if I would have had some I would have added those to hubby's foil pouch. I've also made these with mini corn on the cob's, potatoes and made meat balls instead of hamburger patties.  The options for this are literally endless!

If it's too hot to turn the oven on this recipe can be grilled as well!  Simply preheat your grill then grill for 30-40 minutes.  Be sure to turn once halfway through cooking time and check the meat to make sure it's done and the veggies are soft before serving.

When your packets are done cooking you can either eat right out of the packets or dump it all on a plate.  Be sure to give this easy meal a try this summer!
