Tin Foil Dinners - Cheater Style

Since we haven't had the chance to go camping this summer, I made tin foil dinners at home, in the oven. Scrumptious! There are so many things you can do with tin foil dinners, so this is mysuggestion (with helpful suggestions from my old college buddy, Dani):

Ground beef - formed into little patties, seasoned well (garlic salt, pepper, season salt, all purpose seasoning)
par-boiled potatoes, carrots, and sweet potatoes
Sweet Vidalia Onion, sliced
2 rings of pineapple (canned or fresh) per person
season salt, pepper
sharp sheddar cheese

Use heavy duty tin foil (or double layer regular foil), shiny side up. Spray with non-stick spray. Place meat on foil and cover with onions first, then remaining vegetables (as many as you'll eat). Top with 2 rings of pineapple. Season entire stack well and seal the foil on all sides. Place dinners on cookies sheet in preheated oven at 450 for 20 minutes, turning over once. I also made a few extra packets of just the vegetables, so baby could have some too!

When you remove from oven, carefully unwrap tin foil, sprinkle with cheddar, and serve warm!

  1. Sometimes I wonder if you and I are twins! Definitely on the same wavelength anyway (see my post today).

    No wonder I love your recipes!

    Haven't made them with pineapple or cheese before....hmmmm.

    Sounds delicious.


Thanks for your comment!

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
