Tin-Foil-Packet-Meals-wHere is a great meal idea that will make you feel like you are camping at home this Memorial Day. This is an easy weeknight meal that allows each person to customize what they want in their foil packet.  My daughter had fun filling her foil packet with just meat and potatoes. These are great at home and they are great for camping.  Give this meal idea a shot; I know you’re going to love it.

First you need to take your pound of ground beef and cut it into 4 equal pieces.  Then form the 4 pieces into patties.  Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each patty.

Now slice up your onion, put your baby carrots in a bowl, and cut up your potatoes.  I like to put them in a platter together so everyone can pick out what they would like buffet style.
