What are Foil Pack Meals?
I can’t get enough foil pack meals during the summertime. They come out tasting so good because all of the flavors blend together in the foil. If you have never heard of a foil pack meal, then you are in for a treat! Foil pack meals are simply just protein and vegetables that are steamed together in foil. It’s one of our favorite ways to cook meals in the summer!
My kids love putting these together because they get to choose what they put in them and then help wrap the foil up and wait for them to cook on the grill. We also prepare these ahead of time and bring them camping with us and cook them over the fire. It’s so much fun, and they make such hearty meals. And cleanup doesn’t get much easier than this! No plates or dishes to worry about at all!
Can You Cook These Recipes without a Grill?
Yes! If you don’t have a grill, then your foil pack meal can totally be cooked in your oven! We like these so much that when our grill isn’t accessible during the winter months, we can still make them inside!
- In the Oven: Follow the recipe directions on assembling the foil pack. Then, place them on a baking sheet. If your recipe says to cook your foil packs on a grill on medium heat, then you can cook your foil pack in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook it for about 1.5 times what the recipe calls for. So if the recipe says to cook it on the grill for 10 minutes, cook it in the oven for 25 minutes. Always check the temperature of your meat using a meat thermometer.
