As you might have noticed we are a huge camping family. We have worked hard at perfecting our basic foil dinner, we like it so much we sometimes make it and cook it in the oven. Here is what you need:
1 pound ground beef
1 pack Lipton onion soup mix
Lawry’s seasoning salt
Mix ground beef and Lipton onion soup. Mix well.
Slice onions, carrots, and potatoes and mix together in a bowl. I really like to use red potatoes because you don’t have to peel them.
Then I add Lawry and garlic powder and I really like to add a little bit of the Taste of Home’s garlic seasoning. I mix about 1/2-1 tsp of each onto the vegetables and mix them really well.
Once I have my meat and veggies ready I lay foil out for as many dinners as I will be making and then start assembling. Meat can be tricky to cook in fire so instead of making a hamburger patty like many people do, I shape mine into meatballs so its cooks a little more evenly. Then I top it with a handful of vegetables.
I always fold the foil ends up on one side and then wrap it in a second layer of foil.
I usually make these before we leave home and then pack them in Ziploc bags. That way when we get to our site dinner is almost ready and they can cook while we set camp up.
