Fall is a perfect time for making foil meal packs to cook on the grill or over the campfire. They are easy to make and save you a lot of cleanup which means more time to enjoy your friends and family. Fall is particularly nice for these kind of camping meals because were ready for something warm and filling. You can make them ahead, at home, and pop them in the freezer. Then toss them in the cooler to help keep the rest of your food cold before you’re ready to eat them.
These months make us hungry for meat and potato meals so the recipes below might be just the ticket for your next camping trip.
Philly Cheese Steak
This regional favorite is about as easy as it gets when you put it in foil. You can use ground beef or sliced roast beef, potatoes, green pepper, onion, mushrooms, and provolone cheese. Once you’ve cooked this delicious combination in its tinfoil pack you can eat it as is or scoop it into a soft, chewy role.
Chili- Cheese Fries
we never get tired of eating chili cheese fries, no matter what season. These are easy to do with foil packs and it’s nice to have the individual servings ready when your campers come straggling in from whatever activity they’ve been involved in. You can make this with your own homemade chili or use canned if you prefer that. Grab a bag of frozen French fries and some shredded cheddar cheese and you’ve got some meal magic ready to go.
Eggs & Potatoes
We all love breakfast when we are camping, even if we have it for dinner. You can add potatoes, eggs, and breakfast meat too, if you’d like, all in one single foil pack. Season the potatoes and add them to the foil along with ham, bacon, or sausage and let them cook on the grill. Right before you’re ready to eat you can open the foil pack and drop in an egg for just a minute or two. You now have a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner that can be customized for each of your hungry campers.
