One of the most sought after recipes on my site is the Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Foil Packets. More than half a million people (I promise it's true) have been there and many have shared their success in making it. Hobos in a Foil Packet is a recipe that I have made for my growing family for years. It is an excellent meal for camping trips or just those "in a hurry" nights. You can use ground beef or ground turkey and the clean up is a breeze.
1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey)
4 small to medium potatoes
1 onion sliced
Preheat oven to 350. Tear off 4 pieces of foil and spray with Canola Oil Spray. Evenly divide the pound of ground beef or turkey and flatten into a patty on each sheet of foil. Add Salt and pepper to taste. Add slices of onion divided as shown in the picture below. Lightly salt and pepper.
Next add peeled and thinly sliced potato (one per packet) - salt and pepper to taste. Then final layer is the carrot that has been peeled and thinly sliced (one carrot or more per each packet.) Again salt and pepper to taste. Roll up the foil around the meat and vegetables to seal and place on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Take out of oven and Puncture the top of the foil to let out the steam on each packet.
Hobos baked and ready to plate
As you can see...it makes a beautiful plateful of food! And tastes as good as it looks!
