Also known as Foil Meals, Meal In An Armor or Campfire Dinner. Hobo Dinner is an easy meal to make individual servings for each person in your camping group. This outdoor cooking recipe gets everyone involved in making campfire cooking great fun...
Start with about a 12" to 15" square piece of heavy duty aluminum foil. Place a hamburger patty in the middle, top with sliced or diced potatoes, carrots, onion, a dab of butter, salt and pepper. You can add other ingredients like mushrooms, peas, green peppers and preferred seasonings. You could also substitue 1 piece of bacon instead of the butter, if you'd like. Cut the bacon piece in half and lay on top of your vegetables.
Wrap the aluminum foil securely around all the ingredients. You can wrap a second time, if you like.
Place your Hobo Dinner in a bed of hot coals in your campfire and cook 15 to 20 minutes, then turn and cook another 15 to 20 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on the quantity of food you put in your Foil Meal and how hot the coals are. Make sure you use tongs or other campfire tools to assist with turning and removing your meal from the hot coals.
When cooked through - carefully pull back the foil and eat right out of the foil, or place on a heat proof plate. Easy clean up!
