Hobo Dinner


Hobo Dinners


Serves 6

Simple and satisfying, a full meal stuffed into individual foil pouches.


• 2.5 lbs uncooked lean ground beef
• 2 T dry ranch seasoning mix
• seasoned salt
• fresh ground pepper
• 4 medium carrots, cut into sticks (approx. 6 sticks per pouch)
• 1/2 medium onion, sliced (6 slices)
• 6 red medium potatoes, sliced
• 6 slices of thick center cut bacon, cut in half (OPTIONAL)



Heat grill or oven to 375°. Layout 6 heavy duty foil squares & place 2 halves of bacon in the center of each square.In a large mixing bowl, combine meat and seasonings. Divide meat into 6 equal portions, form patties and set aside.Arrange potatoes atop bacon ((don’t stack the raw potatoes or they won’t cook through)). Next, arrange carrot sticks around the bacon. Place the meat patty on the potatoes and top with the onion slice and a dash of seasoned salt and freshly ground pepper.Seal the pouches and place on a cookie sheet in the oven or directly on the grill. Cook approximately 30 minutes.Serve pouches while still sealed. Half of the fun is each diner opening their very own pouch!

This meal is very flexible. Plays well with others.
Our family is a mixture of multi-gen living.
We don’t always eat at the same time and place….schedules, etc, (it’s family, helping each other out…which works VERY good for Lily!), it’s what we do ♡
Pretty basic; ground beef, potatoes, carrots (not baby carrots) & onions…made ours in the oven.
And I grabbed a little bit of fresh thyme.

It turned out very good! I know we’ll be doing this one often.
