Making a hobo dinner to go camping is the perfect ready made dinner to bring camping with you. We usually have it the day we set up camp, all we need to do is get the fire going.
We start by making the dinners first and wrap them in foil. when finished we wrap them tightly and freeze the packages.
First we start off with a bed of carrots, then add the seasoned ground beef.
Add the potatoes and garlic.
Add the onion slices.
Close up the packages. We then wrap the package with another layer of foil.
In a little over an hour our dinner was ready.
