Potato hobo packs


  • Cook the baby onions and potatoes in a large pot of boiling water until just under tender. Drain well and cut the potatoes in half.
  • Put 2 large squares of good quality, strong kitchen foil on top of each other on a workbench. Generously spray the top sheet with oil and place the garlic, onions and potatoes on top. Sprinkle with a decent amount of seasonings, the sage and olive oil. Then fold the pack up tightly and cook on a preheated ridged grill (or BBQ) over a moderate heat for 20-30 mins until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a sharp knife through the foil, turning every 5-10 mins.
  • Sauté the bacon in a little hot oil until crispy, stirring now and again.
  • Then put the vegies in a large bowl, top with the bacon and some of the cooking juices and sprinkle with the sour cream and then the chives.
  • Serve as an accompaniment to your favourite simple meat or fish dish.
