I was around 15 when I first came to America with my family on a trip to Disney but it wasn’t until I came back when I was 19 on my own that I fell in love with the country. While traveling for 2 months with YWAM up the West Coast of America I saw America with Americans and wanted to live here! One of my fondest memories is of camping in California. More of a city girl than a camping girl I remember freezing at night; shaving with a bottle of water, bar of soap and razor; and Boy Scout Potatoes. Frugal (of course we were traveling with a missions organization!), fun (you’re supposed to cook them over a fire) and yummy, I now make these at home a lot but just a little differently. Around here during grilling season we grill everything and veggies are no different which is why I started doing these yummy packets.
- Simply spray the foil with cooking spray and then add your chopped up veggies.
- Pour a little oil over the top and add seasonings.
- Close the packet at each end and place on a medium heat grill.
For Boy Scout Potatoes add ground meat.
Seasonings: We LOVE Lawry’s, garlic seasoning or whole garlic cloves, and Greek potatoes using lemon and oregano.
Veggies: Cabbage leaves at the bottom of the packet can prevent burning. Add onions, tomatoes or other veggies.
