How many of you remember hobo bags?  I have made these hobo bags for years in summer and winter.  They are great for the grill, the oven or a campfire.  Make them when camping, for picnics when friends and family come over or make one for yourself when you don’t feel like cooking a meal.  It’s a meal in one and in summer use all the fresh vegetables from your garden.  They are so much fun to make and the variety is endless.  You can use different meats as well as different vegetables and add your own spices.

Hobo bags can be made on the grill, over a campfire or in the oven!

 

You will need:

Aluminum foil

Meat of your choice

Fresh vegetables such as potatoes, onions, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, etc.

Salt and Pepper to taste

Any other seasonings you like such as fresh or dried basil, oregano, parsley, etc.

3 or 4 tablespoons butter or a little oil

Cut a large square of foil.  Put seasoned meat in center and top with your favorite vegetables, seasonings and butter.  Pull the sides up and twist to make a bag.  Cook on campfire, grill or in oven until meat and vegetables are done.  Usually about 45 minutes to an hour on 400 degrees. Enjoy!
