Hobo Squares


Makes 4

  • 4  medium potatoes
  • 8  carrots
  • 1 1/2  pound(s)  hamburger
  • 1  large onion
  • 8  slice(s)  bacon
  • cooking oil spray
  • salt and pepper


Cut the potatoes into long slices and the carrots into slices. Divide the hamburger into 4 patties. Cut the onion into rings. Take a large sheet of tin foil, fold in half. Spray the inside with cooking spray. Place 2 slices of bacon on the bottom half and the hamburger patty on top of the bacon. Place a handful of carrots and a handful of potatoes and add several slices of onion to the packet. Salt and pepper entire packet. Seal the packet by folding the tinfoil around the edges. With a marker place a "U" on the top. This will help you remember which side is up. Place packets on a grille with either charcoal for heat or wood. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes then turn over and cook for 10 more minutes. Open packets carefully and enjoy. Hobos are inexpensive to cook and kids as well as adults enjoy the taste.
