1/2 Photos of Campfire Hobo Dinner
Darla Emerson's Note:
In the sixties I was a Camp Fire Girl and this is a recipe we learned to make and cook over a campfire. We made ours with a pork chop, potatoes, carrots and onion. I've tried to revise it so you can use any of your families favorite vegetables and meat. You could make these before you leave home and put them in a waterproof container in your ice chest. List of meats that work good: chicken tenders, smoked sausage slices, ground beef patties, ground turkey patties, thin boneless pork chops. List of vegetables that work good: carrots, green beans, corn, mixed vegetables, etc. (Vegetables can be fresh, frozen or canned). Be creative!
