The Simplest Meal You'll Ever Cook

My boys (meaning my husband and 11-year-old son) are avid Scouters. My husband is an Eagle Scout, and I'm embarressed to say he can cook better than I can in most situations. My son has just advanced to Boy Scout from Cub Scouts, and my husband is trying to teach him to cook. So, the other night he made us a Scout Supper. It was simply delicious and so satisfying. This is what he cooked:

Chopped carrots, onions, potatoes, and bell peppers
Ground beef formed into a small loaf or patty
Seasoning as desired (we used a bit of Country Bob's on there)

All you do is wrap these ingredients tightly in heavy duty foil and place them in the oven for about 45 minutes (about 400 degrees). It comes out moist and delicious. Better still, there are no pots and pans to clean! Just throw the foil away when you are done.

Now, obviously the best way to cook this is in an open fire. If you do that, just throw the package into the fire and let is stay there for about 40-45 minutes, and you are good to go~ Enjoy!
