Dinner is always a struggle for me! At the end of the day, the last thing I feel like doing is cooking. I need something quick, easy, and healthy.
A friend of mine recently told me about Campfire Dinners! I love them - they are like mini, individualized pot roasts. I made these for our small group and they were a crowd pleaser.
(to make 4 packets)
1 lb ground beef
4 carrots (sliced)
4 potatoes (cubed)
1 sweet onions (diced)
salt, pepper, garlic powder
olive oil spray
shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
1. Spread out 4 sheets of aluminum foil. Coat the middle of each sheet with olive oil spray.
2. Put 1/4 of the beef in the center of each foil sheet. Season the meat with salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder.
3. Place the potatoes, carrots, and onion on top of the meat. There should be enough for each packet to have a potato and carrot and a 1/4 of an onion. I add some more salt and pepper on the veggies and drizzle a little olive oil over them.
4. Fold the aluminum into packets. If you make the packets different - remember to mark them.
5. Bake on 350 for 45 minutes. (The more you add to your packets - the longer you will need to cook them to get everything tender). You can also cook these on your grill or over a campfire!
Top with shredded cheese and some organic ketchup if desired. These are delicious and can be altered in so many ways to please each member of your family.
