At home prep your Hobo Hot Pockets:

  1. Combine ingredients in a bowl, and mix everything together.
  2. Spoon a fist size of your ingredients onto a square sheet of aluminum foil. Roll the aluminum foil around the food, making sure you seal all the edges (imagine a tightly wrapped burrito). For extra protection, roll a second sheet of aluminum foil around your bundle.
  3. Place your Hobo Hot Pockets into a plastic bag to protect leakage in your pack when your traveling.

When you reach your destination

  1. Responsibly build a fire, make sure to abide by all local fire safety rules.
  2. When you have hot coals and the fire is steady, remove Hobo Hot Pockets from storage bag and place on hot coals. Cover with more coals, and burning wood.
  3. After 10 minutes flip the hot pockets. Re-cover with coals and let cook for another 10 minutes.
  4. Remove hot pockets from fire and check to make sure meat is thoroughly cooked through. If the meat is not fully cooked, put hot pocket back into the fire and cook until everything is done.
  5. When the Hobo Hot Pockets are done its time to eat! Grab your fork, open the aluminum pocket and dig in!

Clean Up

  1. When you're done eating make sure you place your aluminum foil in the proper waste receptacle. If you packed your Hobo Hot Pockets into the backcountry, make sure you pack everything out, and properly clean your fire pit. Always be conscious of your interaction with nature and leave no trace!
