There are plenty of things you can make ahead, freeze, and bring with you to the campground to make meals simpler while you are here. We often don’t think about veggies when we’re planning foil pack meals and they can really be delicious so following is a few ideas.
Grilled Vegetable Foil Packs – These take about ten minutes to prepare and can feed a hungry crowd. You can make them at home, freeze them, and toss them in the cooler to thaw slowly. You’ll need corn on the cob, baby red potatoes, a few carrots, a zucchini, an onion, some butter, Dijon mustard, thyme, salt & pepper. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and toss to coat them well. Place them in foil packs and, cook them at home. Once done, you can toss them in the freezer all ready to go.
Sensational Foil Pack Vegetables – This is another ten minute operation to get everything together and ready to cook. Cut up some red and yellow peppers, a zucchini, some mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and add Italian dressing and top with Parmesan cheese before serving. You can cook these ahead and freeze for a quick and easy side dish when you’re camping.
Grilled Sweet Potato and Pepper Foil Packs – These foil packs will be filling as well as tasty. The richness of the sweet potatoes make them more like a meal. Add cubed sweet potatoes, yellow bell pepper, butter, honey, salt, and chives to this mix. You’ll have a sweet but hearty addition to those burgers and fries.
Camping meals can be simple and healthy when you use the right ingredients and cooking methods. All these foil packs can be made ahead and will save you lots of clean up after dinner. We hope the whole family enjoys them. Let the kids help make them, too. They love being part of the camping experience and they will enjoy knowing they had a hand in making dinner.
