    rusted_essence's Note:

    My boyfriend, Richard, is an eagle scout which is the highest rank a boy scout can achieve. Only 10% of all boy scouts ever make it this far. Richard told me how they used to make silver turtles at their camp outs and that they are best when cooked over coals flipping them every 15 min until done, or bury them under the coals for 30-45 min. I finally got to try these but they were prepared on the grill. I think the oven will be ok as a last resort as well.

    15. 15
      lay another peice of foil identical to the firt on top and roll edges in to make a "turtle shell" out of the foil for the food to cook inches.
    16. 16
      place on a hot grill and flip every 15 minutes til done.
    17. 17
      i think it would work with the same time under a broiler or 375 flipping every 15 minutes should work as well.
    18. 18
      let cool and serve.

      It's a tin foil dinner! Yay! I used hamburger patties for the meat and cut the veggies up so that they would cook in the same amount of time. I did add frozen green beans and mushrooms. I've never put cabbage over the top of it, but it was a nice flavor addition (I love cabbage). With all the watery veggies it's important to note that there was a bit of water in the bottom of the packet. I kept the meat at the bottom so it would stay moist in this while keeping the veggies on top. Easy to make, shoved them in the oven for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Even my picky brother said it was great.
