Memorial Day is one of those holidays that instantly brings to mind gorgeous weather, hanging out with friends or family, and cookouts. Personally, the grill is my favorite cooking appliance. I love the taste of grilled foods, plus, my husband usually does all the outdoor cooking. Hey, I’ll never complain when someone else cooks and I can just sit back and enjoy the food. Not that I mind cooking, but after spending all winter cooped up in the kitchen, grilling out is a very nice change of pace. While grilling is generally my husband’s area of expertise, I thought I’d throw together a few Memorial Day kick-off recipes to get you in the mood for outdoor food!
This first recipe is one of my favorite methods of outdoor cuisine. Packet cooking can give you everything you need in a meal, with little hassle and virtually no clean-up.

Don’t let the name fool you – while not stuffed to the brim, you do notice the nice mix of flavors without it overpowering the burger. When I had my hubby try this, his reply was “ Oh yeah! Mmmmmm!” Translated, that’s “Heck ya! Gimme More!” in hubby-speak.
