Hobo Bake Casserole

With this recipe, there is no exact measure of ingredients, just personal taste and amount of people that you are feeding. My mom has been making this since I was a child and I still make this when we go camping, and in a casserole dish at home... The key is to make sure you cover your dish with foil, because its the steam from all the juices that help cook and meld everything together!

GROUND BEEF (enough to make as many hamburger pattys that you need)
POTATOES "cubed" (enough for everyone)

1.) Take a few of the outter cabbage leaves and place on bottom of casserol dish to cover the bottom, this help prevent burning!
2.) Take a sharp knife and start shredding the cabbage (set aside)
3.) Cube potatoes then toss and season with salt, pepper, and garlic
4.) Make your hamburger patty's up and set to the side (make sure to also season the meat with salt, pepper and garlic)
5.) Now layer potatoes, half of the cabbage, onions, hamburgers, rest of cabbage. Place foil over casserole dish and put in oven at 400 degree for aprox 1 hour. Done! Enjoy

This recipe is also great to take along camping, prep individual foil pouches before leaving home, then all you have to do is throw them on top of a grill or camp fire!

  1. Light campfire or grill and allow hot coals to develop
  2. Using heavy-duty foil (or, double-layered foil), fold a large piece onto an envelope, bringing the bottom up and creasing at ¾ of the way. Fold sides over, rolling a few times to take care to make a tight seal
  3. Add one cabbage leaf to bottom of foil, then add all ingredients into the pouch. Fold over top and scrunch to seal tightly. If needed, top with another piece of foil. The foil pouch will need to be flipped in the coals every 10 minutes, and any leeching water will cause the contents to burn
  4. Place on hot coals or grill (not over direct flame) to cook for 30-40 minutes, flipping the pouch about every 10 minutes
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool to the touch. Open pouch and taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper if desired
