Tasty Thursday

This fun little book is not only perfect for camping—it can also bring the flavor of the great outdoors to your own backyard! Camp Cooking by The National Museum of Forest Service History is full of mouthwatering recipes that churn up memories of the good ol' days.


Hobo Dinner
2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
2 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 onions, sliced
1 lb ground beef, shaped into 4 patties
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Cut an 18-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil into 4 squares. Divide vegetables into 4 equal portions. Layer half of each portion of carrots, potatoes, and onions on each foil square. Top with a ground beef patty and then finish by layering the remaining onions, potatoes, and carrots on top in that order. Season with salt and pepper. Fold aluminum foil to seal edges. Cook on a bed of hot coals for 15 minutes on each side.

Serves 4 

NOTE: Breast of chicken or fish fillets can be substituted for ground beef patties, but cooking times may need to be adjusted.
