How to Make Hobo Dinners

During family camp 2012
It's officially hobo dinner and camping season. Have you ever made a hobo dinner at your camp-outs? Well our family does, and has many times. It has been an annual meal for our camp-outs followed with smores for dessert. Over the camping years, your size and age may change however, something's never change and that is a hobo dinner.

 When the Sister 6 is on their annual camping trip we make hobo dinners and it is usually based on what diet the girls are on, however, even with the gluten issue making a hobo dinner is easy. Our hobo dinners typically have chicken breast or ground turkey, potatoes, carrots, onions, green peppers, green beans; basically the vegetables that are fresh and coming out of our gardens. At times we may corn, zucchini and or basil/oregano. There is NO rule of thumb, design them for your family.
  1. Since we are camping, wash all the veggies, take them outside set at the picnic table and slice and dice the veggies and meat in bite sized pieces. Maybe a veggie per paper plate.
  2.  Evenly divide the mixture between the extra large sheets of heavy aluminum foil,  roll up the edges tightly. If your foil is cheap you may choose to wrap each packet again as you do not want it to fall apart in the hot fire.
  3. Cook in the hot coals of a campfire until the chicken is opaque and the potatoes are tender, around 40 minutes. 
  4. Remove from the fire, being very careful, unfold and top with cheese. 
Hobo dinners are easy to make, to clean up and delicious.  If you have never made a hobo dinner, at your camp-out, this is the time to start.
