Foil Dinners

Some of you know exactly what I’m talking about when I say “foil dinner”… and the rest of you will scratch your head.
These were a camping staple for my family, and the other night we decided to cook some in the grill for fun.  (Camping isn’t in our near future, especially with an autistic child).
They are really fun to make with kids, let everyone make their own and decide what to put it.
I’m giving you the non-gourmet ideas, but you can get as crazy-gourmet as you want here.
These made for a fun throw-back meal along with indoor smore’s (will share later!).
While I only used bacon for the meat in ours, you could definetely use other proteins. 
We usually used sausage or hamburger, or steak cut in cubes.
You could also leave all meat out if you just want a veggie side dish.
And the skies the limit on what veggies you want to use, but root vegetables work perfectly here, or anything that roasts well.  Happy non-camping! : )
Bacon, I use pre-cooked and chopped
Potatoes, any variety, chopped (You could partially cook beforehand if you don’t want to cook the dinners for as long)
Carrots, chopped
Celery, chopped
Onions, chopped
Herbs and seasonings of choice
Drizzle of olive oil or pat of butter
Wrap individual servings in multiple layers of foil, wrapped well.
Nest in hot coals, cook until done.

  1. We made these when we went camping. The kids liked them so much we cooked some on over the grill the other night. Easy clean up and a huge hit with the kids!
