barbeque bonfire packs

This is a recipe that grew out of necessity. Sunday night we had a dinner at church to say thanks to the folks who gave money for our mission trip. Most of the kids that went were seniors, so we had a small crew to fix dinner for about fifty people. I kept trying to think of something that we could do that would be easy to cook and clean up. Here's what I came up with: barbeque bonfire packs.

Cut aluminum foil in two foot pieces.

Put a piece down and spray with non-stick spray. Then layer

10 Tater Tots (I needed some sort of precooked potato and Tots are the best)
three slices of zucchini (sliced about 1/4 inch at an angle)
half a piece of andouille sausage
one boneless chicken thigh
barbeque sauce
one onion slice

Close pack tightly and place on a baking sheet in a 350 oven for about thirty five minutes. Before you serve it, open the pack and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Everyone loved it and, as far as church suppers go, we fed fifty people for $150.
