Hobo dinner

I did a search and was surprised not to come up with anything.

Anyway, I am going camping this w/e and was wondering what different recipes everyone had for hobo dinners.

hobos earlobe marinated in merlot, olive oil and bay leaf is quite delicious!! be sure not to poke him with a stick b4 u cut it off though...they can get quite "antsy".

however...if that does become a problem for you, a bottle of nighttrain usualy will calm and distract them enough for you to slice off the most juicy and tender parts of the hobo!

Not really. I used to camp a lot, but we usually grilled burgers, steaks, pork steaks, brats, hot dogs, corn on the cob...things like that. I also brought a lot of food from home...potato salad, slaw, tomatoes for slicing, etc.
Seems like we made hobo dinners at Girl Scout camp, but that's been eons ago, and the S'mores were the only thing I really remember.

Hobo dinners

I remember them from Boyscouts.

Hamburger
Carrots
Celery
Onions
Potatoes
Salt & pepper
All cut up and sealed in aluminum foil and set in the coals of a campfire.

Usually burned on one end and raw on the other! (Maybe we should have turned them, from time to time)

The one meal I remember from my Girl Scout camp days was called "Glop", & it was actually quite good - good enough for me to actually make it once I returned home. It wasn't made in a packet, but rather in a large dutch-oven-type pot over the campfire. Consisted of (if I recall correctly) rice, ground beef, canned stewed tomatoes, & cheese (American, I believe).

I have to admit that my "camp cuisine" has improved greatly from those days. As an adult camper, I bring along a little 2-burner propane stove, a large skillet, a saucepan with cover, & a cooler full of provisions that enable me to make omelettes or other breakfasts involving eggs & breakfast meats, grilled sandwiches for lunch, & the likes of turkey piccata, stirfries, or other such stuff for dinner. And I've learned to always bring extra, as 9 times out of 10 the people we go canoeing/camping with provision themselves with things like doughnuts for breakfast & hot dogs for dinner (which is fine unless that's all you're having 3 days in a row. . . ), & I end up feeling badly - lol!!

I have never had a Hobo dinner and will be interested in hearing what our other chefs and cooks have to say about it.

Thanks.

Constance, there are some brats in this neighborhood you could grill. I'd even provide the sauce!
