When Joe finishes a meal I have cooked for all 48 years of our marriage and says “I thnk this is maybe my favorite of anything you make” – he gets a big smile and a hug and you get a blog post! Honestly, the photograph doesn’t come close to showing what a great family meal this is. At our house, it has been a meal for guests as well, because it can almost as easily be made for 12 as for two people around the table. It also is a great make ahead one dish meal for busy weekends or to take with you for campouts.
To serve 4 (adjust quantities as needed for additional servings)
4 ground sirloin or ground chuck patties
8- 10 Small red potatoes (or 3 peeled and sliced Yukon Gold potatoes)
Frozen mixed vegetables
1 onion, sliced thinly
salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and Tobasco

Scatter dots of butter over top of onions. Sprinkle with Worcestershire and a few drops of Tobasco. gather up foil to close packet and place on baking sheet.
