"I've made this recipe for Hobos twice now and will make it again. This last time I went easy on the pepper as my wife said it was a bit spicy the first time. I also added fresh chopped parsley and thinly sliced garlic to the foil pouch, came out great. Lots of variations possible here, but good as is with no changes, too."

Are you making this? 
1 1/2 pounds Ground beef
1 envelope Dry onion soup mix
2 medium Potaoes; peeled, diced
1 can Corn; drained
1 can Peas; drained
2 medium Carrots; peeled, sliced
Worcestershire; sauce

Original recipe makes 4



Mix dry onion soup into the ground beef. Form the beef into four hamburger patties and season each with salt and pepper to taste.

Lay each patty on a long piece of aluminum foil. Evenly distribute the potatoes, corn, carrots and peas over the top of each patty. Just heap it on there! Sprinkle each with worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

Fold the sides of the foil so that they over lap. Bring the long ends of the foil together and fold. The foil should create a pouch for each patty to cook in.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour; until potatoes are fork tender and the meat is cooked as desired. Remove from oven. Open each foil pouch (watch the steam) and drain off excess liquid. Roll the edges of the foil under on all sides. Place foil pouches directly onto a dinner plate.

This is also good with boneless skinless chicken breast seasoned to your liking in place of the ground beef. Very Tasty.

The family said what I was thinking: 'Next time use frozen corn and peas'.

Success!! Great simple recipe to please family members of all ages (from the hubby down to the toddler!). I changed nothing and added nothing, which is not normal for me!

Everyone loved this and cleanup was super easy. I added onion, egg and bread crumbs to hamburger and used white wine in the foil
