Best Foil Dinner a Scout Could Eat

Let me first start by saying my Scout Son will eat anything but this is one of his favorites when there is a fire.  It is my version of a foil dinner, hobo dinner, etc.  Instead of using raw chicken or beef I use pre-cooked meatballs and he loves it!  This meal costs a bit more than I would normally like to spend on a Scout meal but the meal goes a long ways and could depending on the size of your Scouts and their ability to share feed two.

Here are all of our ingredients.  Cost was about $15 but $11 of that was the meatballs and I can feed my family the rest of them while my son is away.

Cut the veggies up small enough to cook easily.  I used the whole pototo and whole white onion.  Used baby carrots because while expensive compared to regular carrots, they are quick and easy.

Cover it with the cream of mushroom, add a bit of water and/or butter (I didn't use any this time but it is a great way to make sure it doesn't stick to the tin foil) and then add the meatballs.  

Special Texas touch, add some BBQ sauce that you have on hand.  I used Rudy's Sissy Sauce.  

Wrap that thing like it is a new born baby.  Cook and enjoy!

Use the sacrificial cabbage to ensure it doesn't stick. Just lay down a single layer of cabbage leaves on the bottom, lay out your meat and potatoes and whatnot, and then a layer on top. The cabbage that is touching the foil burns and stick, but who cares. The sacrifice makes it so your food on the inside comes right out with no burning or sticking.
