Do you often find yourself cooking for several different taste preferences? Someone doesn’t like carrots, another doesn’t eat onions and another doesn’t eat meat. Tin foil dinners are the perfect solution! They’re quick, customizable and oh-so-delicious! They’re also a very easy way to cook on a campfire or grill for an authentic campy meal! Well-seasoned camp cooks and those just starting out both find tin foil dinners to be an easy and satisfying meal!

Here is how you can make the perfect tin foil dinner, no matter your taste preferences or cooking skill level!

Ingredients

This list is not exhaustive, just traditional!

  • Ground Beef
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup, BBQ Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce or Beef, Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • Extra Heavy Aluminum Foil
  • Salt and Pepper or your favorite seasonings to taste (optional)
Instructions
  1. Make hamburger patties out of your ground beef.
  2. Cut up your vegetables into bite-sized pieces. The smaller the vegetables, the faster they’ll cook. Remember you have a whole hamburger patty that need to cook, so not too small on the veggies!
  3. Tear off sheets of aluminum foil – roughly 18×13 inches, or think 4 times the size of your meal.
  4. Assembly time! Place your hamburger patty in the middle of a sheet of foil. The patty needs to be on the bottom because it needs the most time to cook. Top with your preferred vegetables!
  5. Here’s where you can get creative – add a couple spoonfuls of cream of mushroom soup or broth, dash in your preferred sauce and/or sprinkle any seasonings you’d like to flavor your tin foil dinner with.
  6. Folding time! Think about making an airtight seal when you fold so your dinner steams up inside! Bundle it up in a “sack,” or fold layers or foil over each other and crimp the sides for a “packet.” Both work! If you think your foil feels flimsy, add another sheet of foil around it to ensure you don’t lose your meal in the fire.
  7. Cooking time! CAMPFIRE – Place your dinner on hot coals near the edge of your campfire. Cook for 25-30, sometimes even 45 minutes, or until meat is done. GRILL – Place your dinner on medium/hot grill for 30-40 minutes. Don’t forget where yours is placed! Remove dinners from fire with tongs (carefully!) or with heat resistant gloves.
  8. Open carefully so you don’t get a steam burn! Place your entire dinner, foil and all, in a bowl or on a plate and eat it right out of the foil! Yum!
