Grilled Hobo Packets

I was surprised as to how well these came out. The first time I made them, they were a little bland, so I made a few changes the second time and they turned out great!

These are very easy to make and cook. They're perfect for a hot evening when you don't want to heat up the house - everything is all in one simple packet.
