These were so yum.
And since they were experimental, I had to bring out the camera.
So here's what we used:
Potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces (one medium potato per person. We actually had more but it turned out to be too much)
Carrots, thickly sliced (two med. or one large per person)
Cream of mushroom soup
Salt and Pepper
And here's what we did:
First, to make sure the potatoes would cook all the way through, we cut them up, drizzled them with olive oil, salt and peppered them, then let them bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. They're not cooked all the way through, but they'll finish in the tin foil packet.
We also cut them a little too big (about 1-1 1/2" cubes) so cut yours smaller.
Then get a large sheet of tin foil.
Arrange a few cabbage leaves like a bowl.
Sprinkle in some carrots, peas, and potatoes (you'll be layering these, so don't use all of it.)
Spoon a little cream of mushroom soup over the veggies.
Put the hamburger patty on top of that (salt and pepper the patty). I think next time I'd like to mix a little Worcestershire sauce with the beef, something to give it a little more flavor.
Slop a little more cream of mushroom over the hamburger patty, then sprinkle on the rest of the veggies. (We made one packet for each of us, but there was a ton of food so you could easily do one packet for two children.)
Adding veggies... doesn't he have sexy hands??
... moving on...
Cover it all up with more cabbage leaves.
Fold the tin foil around the food, pinching off the ends well. Then place the packet, seam side down, on another piece of tin foil and wrap that up too.
Go out to the grill, which is in the pool area, which is the only gas grill in the apartment complex, and forget to take pictures of the grill master himself.
Instead, take pictures of the various scenery because you're bored while the grill master went back to the apartment to get his laptop and your phone.
We heated the grill up to probably medium-high. Bret doesn't remember how hot it was. We placed the packets on the grill and let them cook for 20 minutes per side. The cabbage burned a little (and the cabbage is our favorite part!) so we'd probably cut it down to 15 minutes a side.
The rest of the food was peeeerrrrrrfect.
Turned out so scrumptious!!
Tin Foil Dinners... not just for camping anymore.
Mmm, I want to do it again!
