Meat Balls and Potatoes in a Skillet<SPAN class="359254313-02062008"> - this is actually one of my favorite campfire recipes

1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup uncooked rolled oats
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup shortening or margarine
4 cups thinly sliced raw potatoes (about 5 large)
2 medium onions, sliced
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons pepper

Place ground beef, oats, chopped onion, 1-teaspoon salt, dash of
pepper and evaporated milk in a mixing bowl.
Mix together lightly but thoroughly. Divide meat mixture in 12
portions and shape into balls; roll them in the flour to
coat well. Melt shortening in a large frying pan. Add meatballs
and brown on all sides over medium heat. When
meatballs are well browned add potatoes, sliced onion, boiling

water and the 2-teaspoons salt and 1/4-teaspoon
pepper. Cover frying pan tightly with a lid, then cook over
medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 20

Makes 6 servings.
