The Everyday Girl Scout’s Campfire Dinner

Foil dinners are one of my basic, go-to campfire recipes. They take me back to being a kid, sitting on a log at summer camp, eating with a spork and thinking life couldn’t get any better. The memories this meal conjures has given it a near and dear place in my heart. They’re simple, they’re hearty, and they’re made with Worcestersire sauce.  Anything made with Worcestersire sauce can’t fail.

What You’ll Need

  • Heavy duty foil
  • Permanent marker
  • Sporks (seriously, it tastes better with a spork)
  • Large metal spatula (for getting in/out of fire)
  • Ground beef
  • Thinly sliced potatoes (frozen hashbrowns also acceptable)
  • Thinly sliced carrots
  • Diced onions
  • Kraft singles
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Worcestersire
  • Salt & Pepper


Rip off a big section of foil and place it on the picnic table

One great thing about this meal is the variations that can be made — bell peppers and mushrooms make great additions.
