Hobos, it’s what’s for dinner

Yes, I know I haven’t written lately, but I have good reasons for not! It’s called time…for some reason I never seem to have enough of it. Classes have been kicking my butt, I can tell the end of the semester is coming up. Have no fear, I have not forgotten about being crafty.
On top of classes, work and taking care of a five year old, I’ve decided to go on a low-carb diet. Said diet has led me to this post. 🙂
I am allowing myself approximately 20 carbs a day. Yeah, that’s not much. Anyway, I’ve been loading myself up on protein and veggies and wasn’t really sure what I was planning for dinner tonight and came up with a spin on a recipe my grandma used to make. If I’ve copyrighted someone it is totally unintentional. As I said before, I have a habit with not measuring stuff…so I apologize in advance.

Hobos (I guess cuz it’s a bunch of stuff in a pouch?)

approximately 1 pound ground beef, raw
shredded cheese
vegetables of your choice
Worchestire sauce
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
any other seasonings you want

Take a piece of aluminum foil, about 16 inches by 18 inches big and place a serving size lump of hamburger in the middle of it. I moulded mine into a type of pond, used the seasoning on it and then put a handful of shredded cheese into that cleared out spot. Next take a smaller clump of hamburger and flatten it, kind of covering up the cheese. Next goes on the veggies. This is totally what you like or sounds good to you. For Jay I put chunks of peeled potato, carrots, onions, mushrooms and green peppers. He doesn’t like green peppers but it does help with the flavor. For my own I put cauliflower, broccoli, onions, carrots, mushrooms and green peppers. After you have this done, season it up again and squirt it with some Worchestire sauce. (Sorry again for not measuring!)

Now, it’s time to wrap these bad boys up. I came close to not being able to close mine, if yours won’t close just get more foil.

I baked these at 350 degrees for about an hour. Depending on what kind of vegetables you choose, you may be able to cut the cooking time as long as that hamburger is done! Be careful of steam when unwrapping these, btw.

Next, just plate it up! You can tell I added more pepper.

Be experimental with these! Try different veggies, seasons, sauces and meats! Yum!!!
