If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and delicious side dish to add to your Memorial Day line-up, look no further! These Hobo Carrots are fantastic. We made them the night of our inaugural patio grill-out! I found the recipe in my Martha Stewart Living magazine, and unlike many of her recipes, these are really, really easy!

Hobo Carrots - Great for the Grill

Delicious side-dish, perfect for the summer grilling season.


  • Carrots
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Parchment Paper
  • Aluminum Foil


  1. Line a large piece of aluminum foil with parchment paper. Make the foil and parchment paper large enough to be able to seal tightly.
  2. Prepare your carrots. The original recipe called for baby carrots, but I used normal, organic carrots. Slice the large ones for quicker cooking time.
  3. Dot 2-3 TBS butter on the carrots.
  4. Salt & Pepper to taste.
  5. Tightly seal up the package so no carrots or butter can escape.
  6. Grill on a medium hot grill (or place packet directly on coals) for 18 minutes, if you have small, thin carrots, or longer for larger, fatter carrots. It took me about a half hour.
