Campground Cooking, is a collection of more than 200 fun, easy recipes designed for RV cooking. Pat says all of the recipes can be made using an RV oven, crock-pot, microwave or electric skillet. Some of the recipes are Foil Dinners that are for all types of campers since they can be cooked over an open fire, on a grill, or even baked in an oven. Many of her recipes can be adapted for cooking over an open fire, and they are great for busy cooks at home.
Basic Hamburger Foil Dinner Per serving:
1 lg hamburger patty (about 1/2 lb.)
1 small potato, sliced
2 carrots, sliced or sticks
1 onion slice
pat of butter or margarine
salt, pepper, garlic to taste
Tear off a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place raw hamburg in center of foil and layer the rest of ingredients on top. Put pat of butter on top. Fold as instructed below. Repeat for each dinner. Cook for about 1 hr. or until hamburger is done and vegetables are tender, turning occasionally to prevent burning (not necessary to turn if baked in an oven at 350 degrees).
FOLDING A FOIL DINNER: Fold long edges of foil together and fold down to food. Roll other 2 ends up to food. Gently press top seam down to seal. ALWAYS OPEN COOKED FOIL PACKETS CAREFULLY TO PREVENT STEAM BURNS.
Variations: Use your imagination--add 1/3 - 1/2 can undiluted soup (such as cheddar cheese, golden mushroom, or cream soups), add frozen veggies instead of fresh, or add fresh mushrooms or zucchini. My book contains a section on "Foil Cooking" with recipes such as "Beef Stew in Foil," "Kraut & Ribs Foil Dinner," and "Ham & Sweet Potato Foil Dinner."
