How to make it

  • Cut four large pieces of foil, large enough to wrap and seal each individual dinner.
  • Place hamburger patty in center of foil and sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper.
  • Peel potatoes if desired, place one potato, cut into 8 pieces, ¼ of baby carrots, ¼ of onion on top of each patty.
  • Spritz with olive oil. Dot veggies with margarine or butter as desired.
  • Sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper to desired taste.
  • As each meal is being wrapped, add one Tbsp of water or beef broth. Seal.
  • Bake on medium-hot grill or in camp fire for up to 1 hour. (Check after 30 minutes for desired tenderness.)
  • Remove from heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Can be eaten right out of the foil.
  • NOTE: Can be baked in oven at 375F for 45-60 minutes. (Check for tenderness after 45 minutes.)
  • You can add more veggies as desired but cooking time should be lengthened.
  • If you add more patties to each packet, allow extra time for cooking, especially if they are still frozen.

    Some onion, mushrooms, and Worcestershire sauce would raise the bar. Yum.

    Another note: We made these on a friend's gas grill, with regular, not heavy duty foil.
    I think the secret to keeping these dinners from burning to a crisp is to seal the packages well so no moisture can escape. Using regular foil might not seal as well. Ours were very scorched, however, it may have been the cook, because he had a higher flame, not low.
    I like mine better, in the heavy duty foil, sealed like Fort Knox!

    I just wanted to add that I make the same thing but just layer it all in a casserole dish and bake for the same time listed. Just remember to add some oil or spray the bottom and sides really well or it will stick. Don't forget to cover with foil.
    Also you can used canned stuff if you have it. We can a lot so we have them on hand and it works just the same as fresh. (canned carrots, canned potatoes-sliced)fresh onion slices

    I made these twice over the past weekend and they were good.
    My current comments on this would be to make sure you add enough seasoning...go heavy.
    Also, I added a bit more water and also put in some packaged gravy mix. This slightly thickened the juices but didn't make a thick gravy mix.
    I also added an extra patty to some of the meals, which required more cooking time.
    In the oven, you can turn the oven up to 400 and cook for an hour or so. We do like our veggies well done so they could have cooked even longer.
    Make sure the packages don't leak moisture. Seal well.

    This brings back the Girl Scout cookout memories. I'll have to try it again this summer. It was always a fun meal and quite tasty as I recall.

    I made this last night and I only had it on the grill(med. Heat) for 25 minutes and it burnt to a crisp. I know next time to watch it closer. IT looked yummy before it fried!~M
