Easy Hobo Campfire Meal for the Grill
There are some nights that I just don’t want to heat up my already HOT Texas Kitchen.
My kids started loving this meal a couple of summers ago, when they made it at camp.
I changed the way they made it – just a tad.
I NEVER follow the same recipe.
It truly makes me feel all chef like.
Easy Hobo aka Meal in a Foil Packet
- Ground Beef
I use Teriyaki Sauce and Garlic Salt
I might add celery, cilantro, chicken, and salsa.
Next I cut off rectangles of foil. Smaller for the younger kids, larger for the big ones.
No worries, if they are not the same. No one notices.
1st: Lay the onions. Some people put butter but since I’m using ground beef, I figure it doesn’t need anymore oils.
Next, lay the beef on the onions. My kids don’t like the taste of onions – so I figure the beef will mask the taste.
(I was right – no one complained about the onions.)
Then add the chopped potatoes.
I didn’t peel them. Hopefully, the kids got more of the vitamins.
(Wishful thinking – not a scientific fact that was proven in our home.)
Then add the carrots. We sliced some. We chopped some. They all tasted the same.
Then our secret ingredient – because every good chef as her secrets.
I just added a half a capful per packet. I wish I had added more. YUM!
Plus, a little Garlic Salt.
Because I like salt and garlic.
Then wrap up like a Hobo sack or a Hershey Kiss.
Find a sweet and willing helper. You won’t have to do anything but chop veggies.
Looks like chocolate for dinner!

Seriously, yummy on the grill.
We hadn’t used this grill in years, since I had won the Smoker for Stuffed Jalapenos. I’m surprised it still worked.
But, it did! And YUMMY! In like 25 – 30 minutes.
The finished product!
All the kids loved it! Plus, it kept my Hot kitchen cool! Literally.
Have you done this before?
Cracker Barrel sells them on their menu for around $7-8 a meal, but you can make them for quarters.
I love a frugal tasty easy meal!
Blessings to you! You are loved!
