Sometimes, work days are long and you don’t want to spend a lot of time on dinner. Or maybe the pantry is getting low, and the options are limited. One of my family’s favorites are hobo dinners. They are tasty and so easy to put together. Super easy clean up too! Our family’s recipe makes four servings, and they are great to reheat and have as leftovers too.
- 1 lb. of ground meat
- 4 slices of bacon
- 1 package of frozen corn
- 3-4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
- 1 package of carrots
- 1 small can of mushrooms, sliced
- 1 can of green beans, drained
- 1 small onion, small
- grated cheese
To make individual dinners, you will need four large pieces of heavy-duty foil (approx. 18-24 inches wide). Preheat oven to 400 degrees (fahrenheit). Shape the ground meat into fourt patties. Salt and pepper both sides, and place in the center of each piece of foil. Slice the bacon into halves and place on top of each patty. Divide the green beans and frozen corn onto each dinner. Divide the potatoes and carrots onto each dinner. Salt and pepper (we add seasoning salt too). Add onions, mushrooms, grated cheese, and a pat of margarine. Wrap tightly and place on a baking sheet. Bake for one hour, or until potatoes are tender.
If you are ever missing some ingredients, it is still okay to make the meal. It just allows you to be more creative!
