    7 Tasty Foil Pack Foods You Can Cook Over A Campfire (Recipes)

    category:

    By Cooking Panda

    Camping is super fun, but there’s a tendency when you’re roughing it to end up eating food that doesn’t taste very good. How often do you find yourself munching on potato chips and cheap charred hot dogs for three meals in a row?

    Well, friends, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be eating delicious meals with ease! You can prep some super tasty meals beforehand and wrap them individually in foil. (Note: You might want to keep said foil packs sealed in zip lock storage bags, or they might get soaked if some of your ice melts.) 

    Then, all you need to do is toss them in the coals of your fire or char them on the grill and you’re good to go!

    1. Bacon Ranch Chicken Foil Packets

    Honestly, I’m forever in debt to this recipe because I had no idea that RANCH BUTTER was a thing. Oh, and in case that still for some reason sounds mediocre, you get to douse everything in cheddar cheese and bacon, because life is really that good.

    2. Pasta with Goat Cheese and Tomatoes

    Pasta is such an easy food, and it always hits the spot. Pre-cook these noodles before you head out on your trip, so that all you need to do is warm the foil packs when you’re ready to chow down.

    3. Butter Garlic Herb Steak Foil Packets

    It’s always lovely to toss a huge slab of steak atop a hot grill, but this way actually works even better! The garlic and herb butter ensures that everything stays nice and tender, plus you get potatoes and veggies to round out the meal.

    4. Indian Spiced Baked Potato and Egg Foil Packets

    Curry-spiced potatoes are delectable for breakfast, lunch or dinner, but when you top them with a runny campfire-baked egg, things just elevate to a whole new level of delicious. This would also be tasty with cheese, ranch sauce, avocado and/or bacon!

    5. Parmesan Chicken Foil Packets

    Easy and versatile, you can make these with your favorite pasta sauce (you can also douse these in white sauce or pesto, for example) and your favorite grilled veggies. This would be fabulous served with some campfire-toasted crunchy bread or rolls.

    6. Shrimp Boil with Potatoes and Corn on the Cob

    Shrimp is a perfect campfire food, since it cooks up easily and quickly. Plus, it goes absolutely perfectly with corn, potatoes, lemon and brown butter seasoning. Yum!

    7. Campfire Orange Cakes

    Don’t forget about dessert! Classic s’mores are always fabulous, but this easy, fruity charred cake is a wonderful way to go! Feel free to use any flavor of cake mix you like — brownie batter would be fabulous too.

    category:

    By Cooking Panda

    Only got 15 minutes? No problem!

    On those evenings when we can barely get ourselves to get off the couch, let alone cook an exhausting meal, we rely on foil pack dinners. You don’t need any pots or pans, and you can prep these versatile beauties in advance if you want and be set for the whole week.

    All you need to do is wrap your ingredients into a single-serving packet and cook it in the oven or on the grill, or roast it over the campfire. It doesn’t get much easier, and we’re pretty sure it doesn’t get that much better either.

    1. Philly Cheesesteak Tin Foil Dinners

    Ground beef, veggies and cheese make for a delicious and affordable dinner reminiscent of your favorite Philly snack. Throw some potatoes into the packet for a warm, hearty meal, or ditch them and toss the filling inside a hoagie roll for something more reminiscent of the real thing.

    2. Campfire Chili Cheese Fries Tin Foil Dinner


    Craving something snacky for dinner? Toss together this quick, satisfying version of your favorite fast comfort food. If you want to keep it a little healthier, here’s how to bake your own french fries.

    3. Indian-Spiced Baked Potato & Egg Foil Packs

    Gluten-free, paleo friendly, good for breakfast, lunch or dinner and completely delicious — this recipe has it all!

    4. Caprese Stuffed Chicken Foil Packs


    What’s the best way to make sure your chicken breasts stay moist, flavorful and generally delicious? Pounding them flat and thin to keep them tender and easy to cook and then stuffing them full of tomatoes, cheese and veggies for maximum deliciousness, of course.

    5. Chicken Fajita Stuffed Sweet Potato Foil Packs


    Cut a sweet potato in half and stuff it full of seasoned dark meat chicken, bell peppers and onions for a low-calorie dinner that doesn’t feel like a compromise. Everybody wins.

    6. Shrimp Veggies Foil Packets


    There are few things tastier than cajun-seasoned shrimp and corn. Toss in a few extra veggies to absorb all that flavorful goodness and round out your meal.

    7. Tomato Pesto Salmon and Rice Baked in Foil


    Feel free to swap out the rice for any instant- or par-cooked grain of your choosing. Whatever you end up with, you’ll have a healthy, filling dinner that tastes just as good as the hour-long version.

    8. Grilled Apple Crisp


    Don’t forget about dessert! This single- or double-portion apple crisp is perfect for when you want an easy dessert but don’t want to feel guilty about eating the whole dang pan.
