Hobo Packets

Here is a fun meal to make while camping, but you can also bake them in the oven for an easy meal that's also easy to clean up!

2 lbs. ground beef (the leaner the better) [Or whatever meat you'd like: chicken tenders, kielbasa, etc.!]
1 onion
4-8 potatoes
1 lb. baby carrots
optional: sliced mushrooms, squash, peppers, etc.
salt & pepper to taste
optional: Dale's or Moore's seasoning sauce

Form beef into 6-8 patties.  Place each patty into a large square of foil.  (This part could easily be done ahead!)  Slice up your onion and potatoes (I like to leave the skins on).  Place onions onto the patty, then potatoes, and then carrots.  Add mushrooms too if you like.  Season with salt & pepper or drizzle on a tablespoon or two of the steak sauce.

Wrap up the packets and seal tightly.  (A second layer is probably a good idea.)  Place on a hot grill (med-high heat) and cook for 30-45 minutes.  (If you're making them at home, cook in a preheated 350 deg. oven for 45-60 min.)

Here's a link I found to all kinds of packet meals- even grilled s'mores!
