Growing up, the only hobo that I knew about was a man who wanted to catch a ride for free on a train! I had never heard of a Hobo that you eat. Phillip introduced me to Hobo's when we were dating a long time ago. He said that his mother made hobo's for her family and everyone could have their choice of ingredients since Hobo's are made in individual servings. Our Hobo's are made with ground chuck, potatoes, onions, salt, and pepper. You may add carrots, bellpepper, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers, or any ingredient that you choose.
Potatoes, peeled & sliced
You begin by tearing off a square of aluminum foil. You will need to tear off squares of aluminum foil for the number of Hobo's that you will be preparing. You will need a pkg. of ground chuck. You will be making hamburger patties for each person. You can make the patty the size of a hamburger patty or the size of a hamburger steak. Place the patty in the center of the square of aluminum foil. Next, peel and slice a medium potato for each hobo. Place the sliced potatoes on top of the hamburger patty. Next, add chopped onion, salt, and pepper. You are now ready to close the square of aluminum foil. Bring the two longest sides of the aluminum foil together and roll down to the top of the hobo. Also, roll the aluminum foil on each end of the hobo toward the hobo. This seals the hobo. Place the hobo's with the sealed side up in a casserole dish. Should there be any leakage from the hobo, it will leak into the casserole dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hrs.
The Hobo's also heat up well as a leftover.
