Hobo Dinner

campfire2One thing that my family and I love to do on weekends is sit around a campfire with good music and good food.  Hobo dinners is one of the best campfire foods that my husband cooks and yes, my husband cooks 🙂  I do my best cooking in the kitchen and Brian is the griller in the family.

We use ground beef and any vegetable our tummies desire.  The ground beef is made into patties.  As for the vegetables, we use strips of green bell peppers, sweet onions, and potatoes.  Sometimes we may add squash and/or carrots.

Per Serving:

  • 1 cup of cut-up fresh vegetables: sliced onions, carrot sticks, sliced bell pepper, cubed or sliced potatoes, salt and pepper, and a dash of Worchestershire sauce is optional.
  • One-fourth (¼) pound hamburger, shaped into a patty.
  1. Using a large square piece of aluminum foil, place patty in the center of aluminum foil.
  2. Salt and pepper patty generously or with your favorite seasoning.
  3. Arrange vegetables on top.
  4. Add more salt and pepper.
  5. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce (more if you like it a lot!).
  6. Fold the foil up tightly around the entire meal. Be sure all the edges are folded down and smoothed together, sort of like a pocket. You don’t want any steam to escape.
  7. We use a permanent marker to put everyone’s initials on top, so we know whose is whose.
  8. Cook on the grill or on an open fire for 25-30 minutes.You may also cook in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Be careful opening these–escaping steam can burn you!
