This campfire classic can easily go from cliché to gourmet.
1burger crumbled, or use dehydrated meat, TVP or veggie patty
At home: Chop vegetables and potato and store in bag or container. If you're using meat or a veggie patty that's not dehydrated, freeze it and make this meal your first night.
On the trail: Place vegetables and meat or TVP in tin foil and season to taste. Add about a teaspoon of water and then wrap tin foil around the food. Carefully place your dinner on hot campfire coals and allow to cook for 20-30 minutes, rotating as needed. Unwrap, add any condiments (ketchup, cheese, hot sauce), and enjoy!
* The great thing about hobo meals is that anything goes! If you're a practiced forager, look for nuts, mushrooms or herbs to give your dinner a distinctly local taste.
