being a Girls Scout as a child we always called these Campfire Dinners. I dressed this up a bit by adding mushrooms. When ready to seal I drizzled with about a T. of olive oil and then sprinkled with Mrs. Dash original seasoning. It's such a nice, tasty, easy meal.

I use Yukon gold potatoes ( no need to peel) thinly sliced, onion and mushrooms also thinly sliced. When the ingredients are on the foil I add our favorite bbq sauce on top. It drips down into the veggies and is delicious.
