Foil Packet Meals: Cooking at it’s Simple Best.
I love cooking with Tin foil it really is a universal, portable cooking tool. You can use it in the oven, on the BBQ or on a camping trip. It’s a bowl! It’s a pan! It’s a pot! The best part is that there’s little clean up involved.
Whether you’re a camper, a backyard griller, a fan of tailgate parties or like to rely on your tried and true oven, these creative recipes are so fast and easy they’re bound to become part of your cooking repertoire.
The camping recipes range from breakfasts to entrées to desserts, and are designed for a 4- to 7-day camping trip, with perishable food items to be used up within the first few days and subsequent meals to rely on canned or dry-packed ingredients. Many of the staple ingredients can be used in multiple recipes, for minimal packing and easy storage.
The delicious grilling and oven recipes offer incredible convenience with minimal cleanup, a winning combination for busy home chefs. Many of the dishes can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen for a speedy lunch, cocktail party, tailgate party, spontaneous weekend barbecue
or no-fuss weeknight meal.
Most of the recipes are designed to serve four people, but they can easily be scaled down to serve one or two people, or scaled up to serve a crowd!
These recipes are easy to prepare, full of incredible flavors yet they use easy-to-find everyday ingredients.
Oh and did I say how easy they are? Just chop it, mix it and you’re ready to go. This really is modern convenience cooking. The balance of recipes will appeal to anyone who wants the convenience of cooking in tin foil.
