Hobo Packs

Make individual complete meals stuffed into foil pouches.



  • 6 slices bacon, thick center cut
  • 2 1/2 lbs ground beef, lean


  • 4 carrots, medium
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced (6 slices)
  • 6 potatoes, red medium

Baking & Spices

  • pepper, fresh ground as desired
  • 2 Tbsp Ranch seasoning mix, dry
  • seasoned salt as desired


  • Heat grill or oven to 375°. Layout 6 heavy duty foil squares & place 2 halves of bacon in the center of each square.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine meat and seasonings. Divide meat into 6 equal portions, form patties and set aside.
  • Arrange potatoes atop bacon (don’t stack the raw potatoes or they won’t cook through). Next, arrange carrot sticks around the bacon. Place the meat patty on the potatoes and top with the onion slice and a dash of seasoned salt and freshly ground pepper.

Seal the pouches and place on a cookie sheet in the oven or directly on the grill. Cook approximately 30 minutes. Serve pouches while still sealed.
