    Default Tinfoil dinner

    Description: Ground beef/ potato/ vegetable casserole
    Serving Size: serves 4
    Time: prep 10 min, bake an hour or so
    Difficulty: easy

    Ingredients:
    1. heavy duty aluminum foil
    2. 1 lb. 80% ground
    3. beef
    4. onion
    5. 24 oz pkg.Tater tots
    6. 1 lb. frozen vegetable of your choice
    7. seasoning salt
    Preparation:
    1. Peel off 8 sheets of heavy-duty foil about 15 to 18 inches long, spread flat.
    2. Dice onion, mix diced onion and seasoning salt (to taste) in raw ground beef.
    3. Start a brush pile on fire and let it burn down to coals. Or use a charcoal grill.
    Instructions:
    1. Divide ground beef into 1/4ths. Sprinkle raw ground beef in small pieces in an 8 by 8 inch area in the center of a sheet of foil.
    2. Pour roughly 6 0unces of Tater Tots on top of ground beef.
    3. Add about 4 ounces of frozen veggie (I use corn) to the top of the potatoes.
    4. Bring the long ends of the foil together over the center of the pile. fold or roll the foil at least over twice. Carefully tuck any escaping tater's into one end and roll that end over twice, repeat with opposit end.
    5. Lay that foil packet seam side down in the center of a second foil sheet. Fold this sheet as before- center seam first, then both ends.
    6. Repeat for three more packets.
    7. Now go chuck them on the coals, turning them over occasionally, until you figure they are good and burned. (Length of cooking depends on the heat of the coals. Very hot- maybe half an hour, moderatly hot maybe 45 minutes, turning around and over every 10 minutes of so. Charcoal grill with 30 coals down the center, about an hour.

    Sounds like Hobo Stew

    Fry hamburg with onions, drain
    using a baking dish first put creamed corn in the bottom and spread evenly
    then put fried hamburger in an even layer over the corn and top with mashed potatoes
    place pats of butter, salt and pepper on top and bake covered about 30 mins at 350

    A friend from way back taught me this one but she called it a french name that i cannot spell....thus, hobo stew.

    This sounds like something we used to do when camping. It would be fun to try. Thanks for posting it!

    I've had that at home, baked in a pie plate, called "Shepherd's Pie" and always wondered what a shepherd would be doing in the kitchen! Now I know! *lol*

    Yes we call it shepherds pie with ground Minced Lamb or cottage pie with ground beef but we cook it in the oven with gravy in the mince mix, it is very good, I like the idea of cooking it over coals.

    Core upper part of apple leaving bottom half intact. Fill center with raisins, nuts and candies. Add brown sugar to taste. Double wrap apple in aluminum foil and place on hot coals for 20 minutes.

    Kathy, If all else fails, bake them! 350 for 45 min. to one hour.
