    Grilled hamburgers in a foil pouch with lots of veggies. It's fast easy and everyone loves it. I remember making it for my kids all the time.

      Growing up we called these Hobos. My mom always baked them, didn't know you could do them on the grill! Always a big hit in our family. Now I make them for my husband and he loves it too - we add more spices to the meat - garlic powder, maybe some red pepper. It's great!

      A quick and easy Friday evening meal when everyone is going in different directions. The patties were nice and juicy but lacked in flavor. Should I do this again I would have to add some seasonings to the meat as the overall flavor was rather bland. PAC Fall 2007
