Campfire Hamburger and Potatoes

I don't know how half of the summer went by and I forgot to make these. Most summers I make them several times but somehow it slipped my mind until my daughter requested them.
Start with a large piece of heavy duty foil. Spray the center with cooking spray. For 4 packets I divide 1 lb. lean hamburger into 4 patties. Start layering on the foil.

Hamburger season with salt and pepper.

Sliced potatoes. Here I used new Yukon Gold so I did not peel.

Sliced sweet onion.

Baby carrots cut in halve.
Season with salt, pepper and parsley. Sometimes I use Lawry's Seasoning Salt instead of regular salt. Dot with butter. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.  Note: I don't do the cheese.
Start folding up the edges of the foil but don't seal yet.

Add 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce to 1 cup Chicken Broth

Pour 1/4 cup into each packet. Seal edges well.

Throw on the grill

Grill covered about 45 minutes or potatoes are tender.


Campfire Hamburger & Potatoes

1 lb. Hamburger
4-5 medium potatoes peeled and sliced
1 medium onion sliced
1 cup baby carrots halved lengthwise.
6 Tbsp. Butter
Fresh minced parsley. I use dried if I don't have fresh on hand.
Salt and pepper to taste
Shredded cheddar cheese optional. I don't add this.
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup chicken broth
Divide hamburger into 4 patties and place on a large piece of greased heavy-duty foil. Place potatoes, onions and carrots on top. Sprinkle parsley,salt and pepper on top. Also the cheese if you use that. Dot with butter.  Fold foil up partway around potatoes. Stir your worcestershire sauce into chicken broth then pour 1/4 cup into each packet. Seal the edges of foil well. Grill covered approx. 45 min or until potatoes are tender. Yield: 4 servings
