This is a summer camping trip family tradition. If you are out camping you can easily prepare the ingredients and since it cooks right on the coals of the fire, you can cook it anywhere. We were not camping, but this made for a unique dinner experience. And with the heat this summer it was nice just not to heat up the house cooking. The basic ingredients are ground beef, seasoning, potatoes, onions and whatever other vegetables you have such as carrots, peppers, and squashes. You have each person make their own meat patty and assemble their vegetables under and on top of the meat. Season and wrap in foil. Toss it on the fire for about 30-45 minutes depending on how hot the coals are. You will also want to either turn them half way through or cover them with coals so that it cooks evenly. Simply unwrap and eat. If you are out camping then the foil makes for a fine plate.
