Boy Scout Dinner
3/3/2010 12:19:37 AM

Many years ago, my husband and I went to a boy scouts' cookout. They made this dinner and we liked it so well that I kept it in mind to make at home. Instead of cooking it in an open pit, I bake it in my oven. It is simple to make. This recipe serves 3-4 depending upon the size you make.

Boy Scout Dinner

1 pound ground beef, browned in a skillet

4-5 potatoes, diced medium

3-4 carrots, diced medium

1 small onion, sliced small

Salt, pepper, garlic salt to taste

Ketchup

Instructions:

Brown about 1# of ground beef in your frying pan. Drain the grease.

Cut up about 4-5 potatoes into small pieces

Cut up about 3-4 carrots into small pieces

Slice some onion

Tear off large enough pieces of aluminum foil to hold your dinner. Place some ground beef, potatoes, carrots, onion, and seasonings in each piece of aluminum foil. Fold the foil over and pinch the edges shut. Repeat for each dinner you want to make.

Place in a 375 degree oven for about 45 minutes, or until vegetables are fork tender.

Serve with ketchup.

Ha ha ! AWESOME ! do I have memories of Cub scouts, Boy Scouts .. fun days !
Camping ... fishing ... fixing real food on grills, campfires ...

Smores ! Who remembers Smores !

I had a foster son who did not know what they were, and I made sure we took stuff to make them when we went camping ... he had never been camping ...

Life is sad and insufficient for many kids !

Hi Myrna,

I guess Phil is busy with his FOTM responses right now, as well as his new recipe forum. I have been visiting his recipe forum for new posts. I was going to post a link, but don't have it handy right now.

My husband was a boy scout but he doesn't cook, so that is no help to us, lol.

Hi Donna,
Hang in there, Phil is a busy beaver, but he will be around. I think everyone should know how to cook a litttle bit. Even if it is just putting a burger in a pan. I could not stand to be that dependent on anyone else. I guess that is why I am single. lol
