Over the weekend we had the opportunity to make what is casually referred to as a “hobo dinner”. Basically this is a bunch of stuff wrapped up in tin foil and then thrown on the grill. I like to think there is an art to making these but really it is super easy. If you click on the thumbnails you will see my basic ingredients. I like to make them in individual servings…but you could just throw it all in one huge tin foil wrapper.
1/4 lbs hamburger, 1/4 yellow onion sliced, 1 med potato sliced thin, 1-2 tbsp. butter, salt & pepper, heavy duty foil, the extras: Carrots, fresh or stewed tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, whatever!
Basically you take all this stuff and throw it on the foil. I like a little butter with mine as it makes the potatoes really come to life, but you can make it fine without. I wrap mine up burrito-style and then throw it on the grill for about 20 minutes or so. It cooks very quickly and it comes out perfect every single time. Throw it on a plate and you got some simply great grub. I learned this from long ago in Boy Scouts. If you are planning on camping…make these ahead of time and freeze them. Just throw them in the bag and by the time you are ready to cook them they will still be cool and fresh.
And yes…of course if you need the grocery list above delivered, we so got you covered there. Just give us a call and we will get one of the HHR delivery vans headed your way!
