    These were a regular in our rotation when I was growing up. The first time we made these, my grandpa commented that he didn't know of any hobo that would eat so well.

      I used frozen shredded hash brown style potatoes as I was out of fresh. My husband and teenage son loved it.

      This is a really good weeknight meal when you don't know what you're going to make and it's almost dinner time! My family really enjoyed this and I enjoyed making it. It's very simple and very tasty!

      This is a recipe that I have prepared many times over an open fire or even in the aftermath of a hurricane in a metal garbage can lid. On the grill or in the oven it makes for a quick meal with easy clean-up. I did use fresh vegetables and reduced the recipe to 2 servings. Made for *Photo Tag*
