Recipe Swap

Gayle at The Grocery Cart Challenge is having a recipe swap today so I thought I would participate because I am running out of ideas for feeding my family. I am tired of making the same thing over and over. The recipe I chose is not really a recipe I found anywhere but something my Mom use to make and I starting making using what ingredients I have on hand so hopefully it is not confusing for you.

Cowboy Packets

1 lb. Ground Meat (use amt. that fits your family size)
Marinade (we use Allegro)
We use the following veggies or whatever is on hand:
Green Beans
Whole Kernel Corn
Sliced Potatoes

After seasoning your meat with marinade, make patties out of the meat and put on piece of heavy duty tin foil. Use a piece of foil that will make a packet that can hold meat and all your veggies. Put veggies on top of meat and add a couple more drops of marinade to veggies and fold up packet. We put ours on the grill but you can put them in the oven. I usually serve some type of rice, salad or homemade bread along with it. The options are endless of what you can put in your packets!
