2 carrots, sliced
1 lb ground beef
Seasoning salt
Butter

Directions:
Directions:
Slice onion, slice and peel carrots, and dice potatoes. I do this at home before we go camping, and store in a baggie in the cooler.
For each packet, tear a piece of tin foil about 15 inches long. Place one third of the beef and vegetables in the center of each piece of foil. Sprinkle with seasoning salt, and add 2 Tbsp butter to each packet (cut butter into small squares).

To seal the packets, lift the long sides of the foil together and roll down. Roll each short end of the packets toward the center. You should have a packet about 4 inches wide and 10 inches long.
Cook over campfire coals for 30-45 minutes, turning occasionally. I recommend playing gin rummy by lantern-light until dinner's ready.
Top with ketchup if desired.

Personal Notes:
This is our all-time camping food must-have. I don't think we've ever gone camping without cooking this for dinner. We've cooked this over a campfire in Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, the Olympics, Zion, and countless campsites along the backroads of Montana. ~Barb

We make similar packets: ground beef, potato, corn, onion, taco seasoning ~ Marg
