This is actually a recipe from Country Bob's Cookbook.
We always just call them "foil dinners" but this book calls this recipe
"Camping Silver Treasure Chests"! sounds inviting to me!!
They were Delicious!!
Ground beef (we used sausage)
onion slices (we omit this!)
Fresh carrots - slices to cook better
Potato Slices - slice thin
salt and pepper to taste
1 head of cabbage
Prepare as many as needed.
Place 1 meat patty, several carrots, potato slices on a piece of Cabbage on large heavy duty foil (I use regular and double wrap them). Add a pat of butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and top with 1 1/2 Tablespoons
Country Bob's sauce.
We use cabbage pieces above and below the food to prevent any burning!
Bring the edges of the foil together and seal tightly. Place on hot coals or on a grill over hot coals. Cook 20-30 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Packets can also be baked in the oven. Vary the veggies as you like!
These were Really Good!!! Next time I think we'll add Mushrooms!
Anyone else ever tried these?
