First Tasty Tuesday I've done in how many weeks? Bah. Several. Anyway, this is my first since huckleberry picking.
I made this recipe with some assistance from Lou over the campfire at that great event. Other family members were intrigued. I found it a nice change from hot dogs and hamburgers.
The intrigued family members thought it would be a fun cooking project to do with kids, which of course I affirmed. I learned it at summer camp, back in junior high, and obviously it proved memorable.
Amounts are per person, and approximate:
1/4-1/2 lb hamburger
1 baker potato, chopped pretty fine (otherwise it's the last thing to cook)
1/3-1/2 a can of corn
a little chopped onion
about 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
garlic salt and pepper
...anything else that sounds good (olives, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, thyme, etc.)
Double up a long sheet of aluminum foil and shape the edges into a bowl. Put the hamburger in the center, flatten and break it apart. Season with garlic salt and pepper.
Layer the vegetables on top of the burger, potatoes first so they'll get near the heat. Top with further seasoning if desired and cheese.
Roll edges of the foil together to make a tight packet. Cook on hot coals, burger side down, for about 20 minutes.
