Hobo Burgers with Wild Greens!

My husband calls these, "Amazing!"
These burgers, while not pretty, have a fantastic flavor!  They are great for camping and cooking over a fire or on a grill.  The instructions are for the oven so they can be made anytime.  It's a versatile recipe because you can alter the ingredients to what you have on hand.  You can make your hamburgers home made or use a frozen patty which is what I did.  Any type of patty meat works.  Other wild greens can be substituted.  While dock is tart when fresh, after cooking you can not detect any tartness. The greens contribute the least flavor part of this recipe and are primarily used to add nutrition!

Hobo Burgers with Wild Greens


8 hamburgers, frozen or fresh
2 potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
1 8 oz carton of sliced fresh mushrooms
24 baby carrots sliced lengthwise into fourths (like matchsticks)
1 large onion sliced thin
1 large handful of dock, center stem removed and chopped
1 handful of wood sorrel, chopped
1 handful of wild garlic/onion chives, chopped
8 tablespoons butter
garlic salt
spray non-stick oil
aluminum foil


Make 8 large sheets of aluminum foil doubled over.  Spray with non-stick spray.  Place 3-4 potato slices, 12 carrot sticks and some sliced onion. Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Place burger on top of vegetables.  Sprinkle with some dock, sorrel and chives.  Top with some mushrooms.  Add a tablespoon of butter to top.  Sprinkle again with garlic salt.

Seal the aluminum foil at the top.  Repeat until all eight are finished.
Bake at 375 for 1 hour.

Serve with ketchup!

Optional:  You can use a tablespoon of cream of something soup in each one for a creamier effect.  You can also use frozen mixed vegetables as an alternative.  For a different flavor, add Worcestershire sauce.
