Hobo Hamburgers

When Joe finishes a meal I have cooked for all 48 years of our marriage and says “I thnk this is maybe my favorite of anything you make”  – he gets a big smile and a hug and you get a blog post!  Honestly, the photograph doesn’t come close to showing what a great family meal this is.  At our house, it has been a meal for guests as well, because it can almost as easily be made for 12 as for two people around the table.  It also is a great make ahead one dish meal for busy weekends or to take with you for campouts.
