Do you need a quick, easy idea for dinner tonight? Here’s an oldie but goodie that the kids can help with. Tin Foil or Hobo Dinners are so fun, easy, and the best part, you don’t even have to heat your house up to cook them. Just throw them on the grill or head up to the mountains and throw them on top of some coals. Super fun. Here’s how I made mine.
Tin Foil Dinners(One recipe equals one person’s meal) 1/2 lbs. of hamburger mixed veggies (I use potatoes, carrots and onions, but you could use whatever sounds good. I wish I would have added fresh mushrooms to mine.) 1/2 can Cream of Mushroom Soup Spices and Seasonings to taste
Get a generous portion of your Heavy Duty foil (if your foil isn’t Heavy Duty then double up). Make sure to spray cooking spray on it from end to end so that the food doesn’t stick. Spread a little of the Cream of Mushroom Soup on the bottom but reserve most of it for on top. Place your hamburger on top of the soup, then add your veggies. This is a great place for the kiddos to help out. Let them add what veggies they want and the amount they want as well. Remember, kids love to eat what they help make. Use salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you want at this point and then cover it all with the rest of the Cream of Mushroom Soup. Wrap up your packet and place either on the top shelf of your grill for about 35-40 mins or until your meat is cooked through. You could also cook on coals, or in your oven at 350 for about 45 mins. Just remember to check periodically so your veggies don’t burn. Enjoy!! It sure was tasty and a fun out for our family. Oh, and easy clean up too. Do you have any fun end of summer recipes for the rest of us to try?
