Also known as a tinfoil dinner. Basically meat and veggies cooked in tinfoil packets. They can be cooked on a grill, in an oven, or over a camp fire. They are cheap to make, have little to no clean up, and easy to throw together. Plus, the best part they can be personalized easily to each person.
1 lb. hamburger
1-2 potatoes per person
Rip off 3 pieces of tinfoil. Wash and peel the potatoes and slice them into 1/8″-1/4″ pieces. Place the sliced potatoes onto the tinfoil (oval shaped in the middle). Mix in the carrots and onion if you’d like. Add little pieces of butter on top of the potatoes (no more than 1 – 1 1/2 teaspoons total and you do not need to do this it will cook fine without it). Salt & pepper the veggies. Season your hamburger with the seasoned salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder. Form the hamburger into 3 patties (sometimes I do 2 – 1/2 lb. patties since there are only two people in our household). Place the patties one per packet on top of the veggies. Bring up to edges of the tinfoil and roll down to form a seal. Take the ends of the tinfoil fold in both corners (to make it look like an arrow/triangle) then fold in. For pictures on how to fold your tin foil packet see below. Cook in the oven at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Flip halfway through cooking. I place these on a baking sheet to cook so nothing drips all over.
Grilling & Campfire Instructions: Double the tinfoil. For a grill cook for 30 minutes on medium to medium-high heat depending on your grill. Flip halfway through cooking. I have never cooked over a campfire but I assume it would be similar to grilling.
