Classic Hobo Campfire Pack
From Nicole Iizuka, POPSUGAR Food

1/2 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ketchup
2 red potatoes, cubed
1/2 yellow squash, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cooking spray
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Cut two large squares of heavy duty aluminum foil. Spray each piece of tinfoil with cooking spray.

Mix ground beef with worcestershire sauce and ketchup and divide into two patties. Place beef in the center of aluminum foil and then divide the rest of the vegetables evenly into each packet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold each packet up tightly around the entire meal.

When ready to cook, place packets on an open fire for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the vegetables and meat are cooked through. Use tongs to remove from the fire, open the packets carefully, and top with shredded cheese. Serve immediately.

  • Nice job, Brandy! I’ve been making these since I was a Scout. Now my son makes for his Scout camping trips, and today I’m teaching it to a whole Den of 9 & 10 year old boys. Those boys have been bringing packaged foods to overnight camping (ugh!)…they won’t from now on. They have always been intrigued by these packs when they see my son and I cooking and eating them – now they’ll be able to make them as well. I’ll show them this video to get the meeting started, just to show them how easy it is. Nicely done!

  • We planned to do this a year ago for my Girl Scout troop's camping trip. We were running late so we slightly heated them and just ate it. The problem was we cooked the meat first, but we had raw potatoes and onions.
