Hobo Packets

I’ve been seeing this recipe all over Facebook and tonight I decided to give it a try. (I used the variation of the recipe found on www.southernplate.com.) I’m really glad that I did and you will be too. My family loved it and it was simple, quick and delicious which happens to be three of my favorite things.

 

Ingredients:

1 Lb hamburger

1 onion

7-10 potatoes (I used Dole red potatoes)

1 bag of Baby Carrots

Dales Seasoning (Or any brand of Steak Seasoning)

*Various seasonings of your choice

Aluminum Foil

Preheat oven to 350. While its warming, wash and cut your onion into round slices. Wash and cut each potato into fourths. Next put hamburger, seasoning salt, garlic salt, and 1 tablespoon of steak seasoning into a bowl. Mix together. Form 6 hamburger patties and set aside.

Place each hamburger patty in the middle of a foil packet. Add potatoes and carrots, (about 5 each) and an onion slice to each packet. Sprinkle seasoning and add 2 tablespoons of steak seasoning. Fold foil packet closed. (Make sure it’s tight.) Put the packets on a baking sheet or in an oven safe pan and place in oven. Cook for 45 minutes – 1 hour depending on how well you like your meat cooked.

*Recipe Tips – This recipe can be made with pork, chicken, or beef. Some recipes  call for butter but I skipped that  ingredient. (I felt like the butter might make the dish oily.) The meat and the steak seasoning make plenty of sauce by themselves.

If you’re not a fan of onions you can skip that ingredient. You can also add more carrots and potatoes to suit your taste. Make sure you seal the foil so the seasoning stays locked in. You’ll know the dish is done when the meat is brown and the potatoes are soft.

Enjoy!
