Campfire meals are a favorite of mine. There is something that cooking over a campfire adds to the dish. When you don’t have a campfire the next best thing is a grill. Today I am sharing some grill packets that come together in no time and cook in 15 minutes. I make them on the grill but they could also be cooked over a campfire.
The main reason these cook so quickly is because of the ingredients used. They really just need to be heated. You do want the potatoes and onions to have a little time to get a little more tender. Other than that you are basically warming the ingredients.
I used all beef hot dogs, but if you have any leftover meat that is fully cooked like chicken or steak you could easily dice that up and use it in place of the hot dog.
- 5 (18 inch) pieces of heavy duty foil
- canola oil
- 1 (20 oz) pkg. refrigerated [url href=”http://www.simplypotatoes.com/products/productview.cfm?prid=37″ target=”_blank”]homestyle sliced potatoes[/url] or [url href=”http://www.simplypotatoes.com/products/productview.cfm?prid=38″ target=”_blank”]red potato wedges[/url]
- 1 small onion, cut in thin wedges
- 5 all beef hot dogs
- 2/3 cup bbq sauce
- 1/3 cup cheese
- Brush the portion of each foil sheet where you will be placing the ingredients.
- Divide potatoes evenly between the squares of foil.
- Top each with some of the onion and hot dog.
- Then drizzle each with some of the bbq sauce followed by a sprinkling of the shredded cheese.
- Fold foil over mixture sealing tightly.
- Grill covered, over medium heat, for 15 minutes until heat through. Carefully open foil and allow steam to escape. Serves 5.
