Breakfast Hobo Packets

Breakfast Hobo Packets

Good morning! Time to enjoy some breakfast hobo packets. I love making things in foil packets and just tossing them onto the grill to cook. They’re easy to put together, easy to cook, they taste great and clean up is a breeze!

  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage bulk, ut into 1/2" rounds
  • 1/2 pound shredded hash browns frozen, thawed
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper diced
  • 4 large eggs
  • kosher salt
  • ground black pepper
  • sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 small tomato chopped, for garnish
  • 1 green onion chopped, for garnish


  • Fire up your grill for direct and indirect cooking.
  • Tear off two large pieces of aluminum foil (about twice the size of a dinner plate). Spray each with non-stick spray.
  • Divide the sausage patties between the foil.
  • Top with the hash browns and peppers.
  • Take a spoon and push down in the center of each 'pile', making an indentation large enough to hold the two eggs.
  • Gently break the eggs (two each) into each indentation.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Gently fold up the sides of the foil and seal.
  • Place onto direct for a few minutes then remove to indirect heat and let cook until the sausage is done (I poked them with an instant-read thermometer) and the eggs are done, 10-15 minutes.
  • Open packets and add cheese. Return to grill and heat until the cheese melts.
  • Top with desired garnishes.
