On our recent camping (cabin-ing) trip we discovered that our dear friends had never had hobo. This is a staple of our summer fare and I was quite shocked. Could it be there are others out there who have no idea?? There are many ways you can do this wonderful meal. If Evan didn't have an aversion to mushrooms I think a mushroom and Swiss packet would be fabulous. I do something like this:

1 pound ground beef
1 sweet yellow onion, sliced
few sliced potatoes
lots of sliced carrots (or baby ones if you're lazy)
fresh garlic, minced
fresh ground pepper
sharp cheddar cheese

Lay out two big sheets of tinfoil overlapping horizontally a few inches. Crumble the ground beef in the center. Top with a generous sprinkle of Lawry's and then add a little more. Add garlic, onions, potatoes, carrots and fresh ground pepper. Wrap up into a packet and throw on the grill for 45 minutes or so. Open the foil and dump on lots of cheese and wrap up again so the heat can melt it. Eat.

Would you believe we haven't had hobo all summer? Never thought of putting Lawrey's on it, but I'll join you on the mushroom and swiss!
