1 lb ground beef

2 russet potatoes, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

½ large onion, chopped

1 C sliced mushrooms

4 slices Provolone cheese

Salt and pepper, to taste

If using an oven, preheat to 400 degrees. Divide all the ingredients into fourths.

Place a ¼-pound layer of meat on a 14-by-14-inch square foil piece. The meat can be a soild patty or crumbled into chunks.

Pile a desired amount of the remaining ingredients on each foil sheet. Season with salt and pepper. When each foil dinner is built, bring two foil sides in and crease the sides together, folding over a few times to make a tight pocket. Take the open sides and fold them closed until the fold runs into the food piled inside.

Place the packet on a cookie sheet and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. There is no need to flip. If cooking over a fire instead, place the packets close to or even directly on a pile of hot coals or briquettes. Cook for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
