Hobo Dinners

These hobo dinners are a delicious and easy dinner cooked up in foil. Great cooked over a campfire, or in your oven at home. Packed full of flavor and customizable so everyone will love them!
Servings: 4


  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced golden potatoes (this was about 4 potatoes for me)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup fresh green beans
  • 1/2 cup baby carrots
  • 1/2 cup onion slices
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Spray for sheets of heavy duty foil with nonstick spray.
  • Spread a small amount of cream soup on the bottom of each piece of foil.
  • Divide the potatoes evenly between the foil pieces.
  • Create four patties (approx. 1/4 pound each) with the ground beef. Place on top of the potatoes.
  • Top with remaining veggies, divided evenly.
  • Sprinkle each with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon remaining soup evenly over the entire dish.
  • Foil foil over the food and seal edges well.
  • Place the packets on warmed coals. Cook for 45- 60 minutes, turning every 10 minutes or so, or until the meat is cooked through and veggies are cooked to desired doneness.**


**Or cook in the oven at 350 degrees for the same amount of time.
