Hobo Dinner III


  • Cabbage (a lot because it shrinks)
  • Potatoes (sliced thin)
  • Carrots (thin)
  • Onions
  • Anything else you would like


Layer ingredients on large sheet of Aluminum Foil. Sprinkle garlic powder on vegetables (optional) or whatever seasoning you prefer. Add a pat of butter. Top with a medium hamburger patty. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold in aluminum foil and close up. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Could check after a half hour.

Another option is to make these up and take them with you camping. Cook individual dinners over the camp fire.

After ground beef is cooled and drained, add all other ingredients except corn chips. Simmer until rice is tender (about 20 minutes).
