"This is a very good veggie dish I learned years ago at a school camp-out. It's easy to make and can also be made in the oven the same way."

  1. Peel and cut up the potatoes and carrots into bite-size chunks. Chop up onion.
  2. Combine all veggies in tin foil or foil baking bag. Season with desired amount of seasoning salt and top with butter. Seal foil well (you may need more than one bag, so the vegetables are done evenly).
  3. Grill for approximately 40 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are soft (flip bags at least 3-4 times during grilling). Remove form grill and place the veggies in a large bowl and add the sour cream, mixing well.

This is a good side dish for BBQ chicken or ribs. The sour cream balances the spiciness of the meat. Nice.

Excellent. I grew up on this, but we didn't use carrots and we usually served it with sour cream and "bacon" bits. Extra-yummy with a little celery salt, too! Thanks for the great reminder. :)

I've been making this for a long time but without the carrots. If you like cabbage try cutting some up and laying it down first . Then the onions maybe some peppers garlic cloves butter and pot...

Amazing! this recipe is so easy and it tastes awesome! I like to add garlic to mine

In terms of "camping food" this is terrific! I also added chopped up mushrooms, zucchini, and green pepper (with extra butter/seasoning salt to account for more veggies) and left out the sour cr...
