campfire meatballs'n spaghetti sauce

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, sliced crosswise 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 cup prepared spaghetti sauce
  • shredded mozzarella or grated Parmesan cheese
  • prepared garlic bread or garlic bread sticks, warmed

DIRECTIONS:

In medium bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, water, garlic salt and pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 16 meatballs.

Tear off four 18" x 12" long sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil. Place equal amounts of meatballs and zucchini in center of each; top each with 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce. Bring shorter edges of foil together over the center; fold down loosely to seal, allowing room for heat expansion and circulation. Fold in open ends to seal.

Place packets on grid over medium ash-covered coals. Grill 20-25 minute or until meatball centers are no longer pink and zucchini is tender, turning packets once.

To serve, carefully unfold ends and tops of packets; sprinkle cheese over meatballs. Serve with garlic bread.

Suggestions:  To prepare indoors, preheat oven to 400°F. Place packets on baking sheet; bake 30-35 minutes.
