Hobo Burgers in Foil - This is a camping classic. Wrapping the meal in cabbage leaves helps to preserve moisture and prevent burning.



  1. Mix Worcestershire sauce into beef.
  2. Cut four large sheets of heavy duty aluminium foil and place a cabbage leaf onto the shiny side of each one.
  3. Shape beef into 4 patties and place onto cabbage leaves.
  4. Top each portion with onion and potato slices, add a pat of butter and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Wrap another cabbage leaf around the top of each portion and seal each package.
  6. Place on medium-hot coals for about 20 - 30 minutes, turning twice (carefully) while cooking.
  7. Discard cabbage leaves if they become charred during cooking.
