When Jacob told me he would be working Summer of 2012 at Camp Dickenson, I flipped. You see, Camp is pretty much the best place on the entire PLANET, and I was so happy Jacob was going to be working there for a whole summer! He came back in August with lots of songs, verses, life lessons…and of course, food recipes. What’s our favorite?
I remember coming back from camp when I was in middle school, and wanting to try out Hobo Packs on mom and dad. At camp you make them over fire. Now that the hubs and I have our very first [rental] house, we unfortunately do not have a fire pit. :(
Jacob came to visit last weekend and what did we decide to make for supper? Of course..Hobo Packs.
I didn’t think our landlord would appreciate starting a fire in the back yard, so we had to improvise. We decided to try our very first hobo packs in the oven. And they were GREAT!!!!
What we used…
Bratwurst Sausage (optional)
Seriously…it was that easy.
350° for 45 minutes and they are perfect. Cut yourself a large square of foil, enough to roll up the edges and seal it tight after all the food is inside. After covering the foil with butter, we put a layer of cut potatoes and carrots on the bottom and seasoned with salt and pepper. Chopped up a little onion, then added bite size pieces of ground beef (uncooked) and sliced bratwurst sausage. Finished it with more salt and pepper, and rolled up the edges so it makes a fully covered “pack” ..,then popped it in the oven. 45 minutes later, we took them out and immediately put shreaded cheese on top. Niiiicceeee and melted.
The best part?? EASIEST CLEAN UP EVER!!!!!!!!!!
Annalee is going to try this later this week. :) Are you?
