My kids had this at their summer camp. My version's a bit easier, they had to peel the potatoes with their teeth!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place veggies and hamburger pattie in middle of large sheet of aluminum foil.
  2. Sprinkle with seasoned salt.
  3. Bring up the two long sides of the foil to meet above the food, fold (crimp) the foil several times until it is snug against the food.
  4. Fold (crimp) the short ends of the foil several times until snug against the food.
  5. This will seal the food in and prevent leakage.
  6. Place package directly on hot charcoal and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes each side (or, you can place package in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour).
  7. Make as many packages as needed.

Instead of a frozen pattie, We use 1 lb of fresh burger (in a bowl shape). Carrot, celery, onion, peppers, corn, unpeeled potatoes diced, etc...... Season salt, pepper & salt, McCormics Brand seasoning, Old Bay, Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, etc........ You name it and season it, its gooooood eating. Grilling is the best way for me to cook it. Off the coals so it wont burn on hot spots and still gets that smokey flavor. MMMMMMM GOOD.

Awesome! My children said it was the best vegetables they ever had. I added red peppers too as pictured and cut the seasoning salt down to half tsp per packet. It made a great easy recipe.

This is really a no fuss no mess recipe. I have been making dinner packets since my days with Girl Scouting. The ingredients can be easily adjusted for taste and personal preference. These were made with a combination of red peppers, onions, mushrooms and baby cut carrots. It was served with sweet potato fries and a chopped salad for a delicious meal. Thanks for sharing.
