    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!

      Hobo dinners are amazing! Instead of using cooking spray, we line the foil with a cabbage leaf to prevent everything from burning. (And we've had our share of burnt ones!) Since we bury ours in the campfire coals, we always joke, "Don't forget the cabbage leaf!"

      Now, this was a strange one. First off, I didn't add the carrot as I don't eat carrots, but I did add some herbs. It doesn't look very appealing, as it's quite plain looking, which is deceptive as it is really tasty. We decided we really like it and would certainly love to try it as a campfire meal, as the smokey flavour can only add to it. The garlic makes it a winner. Certainly worth trying again and I recommend it highly! Reviewed for Photo Swap 08
