This is something I learned to assemble and cook on camping trips in the Boy Scouts. At the end of a day filled with camping activities this was a great meal to fill up our empty stomachs. I decided to put this together for dinner tonight. I cooked it on our charcoal grill, and it turned out great. It brought out some fond memories for me and my wife enjoyed it as well.

How To Make pork chop & potato dinner in foil

  • 1
    Lay out a large sheet of heavy-duty foil for each foil packet you are going to make. One packet for each person.
  • 2
    In the center of the foil put 6 round slices of potato arranged in 2 rows of 3 slices, side by side.
  • 3
    Put 1 or 2 slices of onion centered on top of the potato slices. Add 2 small slices of butter to this. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
  • 4
    Salt & pepper both sides of the pork chop along with some of the garlic powder. Put the pork chop centered on top of the potato and onion.
  • 5
    On top of the pork chop put 1 or 2 slices of onion and 2 small pats of butter. Now put 2 rows of 3 slices potato on top.

    Around the sides of this put the carrot sticks. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.

    I always like to eat this right out of the foil adding some ketchup to the foil as I eat.
