ISO help/recipe for "Hobo Pie"

Okay, so when I was a kid my mom used to take hamburger patties, a potato, a carrot, some frozen corn, a few onion slices, wrap it up in aluminum foil and cook it for dinner. She did it in the oven and it was really good. Nothing fancy, just good "comfort" food. I want to do it tonight for dinner but I don't know what time and temp to try it at. Anyone ever hear of such a thing in the oven and how long would you cook it for and at what temp.

Funny, that's what I'm having for dinner tonight, sans the hamburger. I think the potatoes will probably take the longest to cook, 30-40 minutes I'm guessing.

Miss Calli, I've made a jillion of these things in a campfire...never in an oven. I think vyapti is correct in saying the potatoes will take the longest. So I'm guessing pre-heat your oven to 350*, and go for it. Check them in thirty minutes, and go from there. I've always made little small bite size meat balls out of the hamburger so they would be sure to cook through and through!!!

Have Fun & Enjoy!!

Thanks!! I just remembered my mom's had lima beans. I don't think those would fly with my daughter I'll be lucky at this point if she doesn't throw the carrots at me.

It took about 45 minutes at 350. I wrapped some asparagus in foil and put it in about half way through. There were no leftovers.

Wow my title changed and I certainly didn't need/wasn't "ISO a recipe". Had one, just missing the time/temp. At worst I forgot two ?? but I certainly didn't even recognize my own thread with that title.

There may be members who are unfamiliar with what you were asking about and might be interested in it. I know I was. I've never heard of Hobo Pie.

Okay, I guess I understand that. The ISO thing threw me for a loop. Maybe "Have a recipe, just missing something" might be more appropriate. ??

Good point. That's where the ISO "help" part comes in.
