George Hush’s and Uncle Larry’s Hobo Packets

 

The Hobo Supper or Hobo Packet can be made about 5000 different ways. This is the first version I learned. The following is my current favorite.

 

Ingredients: 3 pounds ground beef, 4 medium potatoes, 3 carrots, 1 medium onion, salt and pepper to taste, 1 can cream of mushroom soup

 

Directions

Form ground beef into patties and place each on a square of aluminum foil. Divide potatoes, carrots, and onions equally and arrange on top of patties. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place a spoonful of mushroom soup on top of vegetables. Seal foil tightly and place on grill or directly on coals for about 45 minutes to an hour. Can also be cooked in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes. Delicious and easy
