Ingredients:

1 Onion, sliced into 6 thick slices
2 large carrots, cut into strips or medium thick slices
red potatoes -- cut in quarters or thick slices -- leave skins on

Directions:
Directions:
Season meat with season salt, pepper, garlic salt. Cut one good sized piece of heavy aluminium foil. Place one meat patty in center, top with onion, and put carrots and potatoes in (enough for a one-person serving). Sprinkle with a small amount of olive oil and salt and pepper. Fold and wrap into an air tight package. Repeat with each piece of meat.

Place foil packets in a 9 x 13 pan, pour enough water in pan just to keep pan from burning. Bake at 350 1 hour, or until meat is done and veggies are tender. Serve 1 packet on dinner plate to each person. Let them open it and put it on their plate (cause it's more fun that way!)

Personal Notes:
This was a meal Mom made quite often when we were kids -- we always loved it -- we felt special having our own little dinner packets to open. It would also be something you could fix and leave in fridge for your kids to bake on a night you're home late.
