Tips for making traditional foil packets:

  • Cut two pieces of aluminum foil to about 12″.  Layer them one on top of the other.  Place recipe ingredients in the center.  Bring up the longer edges of the foil and fold together.  Grasp one end and roll it up, repeat with the other end.
  • Alternatively foil pie plates may be used to cook foil packet meals.  Simply place the recipe ingredients in the pie plate and cover with aluminum foil before cooking.
  • For best results cook the foil packet on a grill over the open fire.
  • Use caution when handling the foil packet as it can become hot while cooking.

Camping essentials for foil packet meals:

Camping meal preparation ideas:

  • Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible.  Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier.  Trust me on this one!
  • Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought. 
  • Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or pie irons. These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size ziploc bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
  • Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy.  These Cheesy Vegetable Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Tinfoil Packet Taco Salad recipes are some of my favorites.
