Tin Foil Dinners

September 11, 2008

I have no desire to camp with very small children. Unless that means setting up a tent in the backyard and letting the kids play in it before bed. That I can handle. Since we haven’t been camping in a long time, it’s been years since I’ve had a tinfoil dinner.

2 hamburger patties
1 big potato, sliced
1/2 bell pepper, chunked
1/2 onion, chunked
baby carrots, cut in half lengthwise
season salt
bbq sauce

Cut 2 large lengths of tinfoil. With shiny side of foil up, spoon on some bbq sauce, and place a patty on top. Sprinkle with season salt and pepper, add more bbq sauce. Cover with vegetables, and give another healthy sprinkling of season salt and pepper. Wrap foil around food, fold at top so juices won’t run. Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until done. Serve immediately.

*After I made these I found a couple of recipes that used a few tablespoons of cream of mushroom or chicken soup. I bet that would make it really good.

*Picky Palate has an awesome looking recipe for Firehouse Chicken that she put in a tinfoil dinner. I want to try that some time.

*For Camping: precook everything and then just warm it up in some hot coals.
