I always loved camping growing up. We’d pack up our tents, sleeping bags and a cooler full of food and head up to the mountains, our SUV packed to the hilt. One of our favorite places to camp was sprinkled with bright yellow wild flowers and a lake was a 10 minute walk away. It was a beautiful place. Besides, admiring nature’s beauty, some of my fondest family camping memories were around the fire with my family. Most of these times also involved food!
One of the easiest meals we could make out on the campfire was tin foil dinners. Everybody loved tin foil dinners because we could each choose what we put inside and it always tasted the way we wanted–delicious! Although we’d love to be camping most days, that’s not always realistic for most of us, SO, we tried out our family tinfoil dinners on the grill and they tasted just like the real deal!
Tin Foil Dinners for the Grill
These easy tin foil dinners come together very easily and cook in no time at all. You can have the taste of the outdoors right at home! So you’ll need a few things to get started, some tinfoil and some nonstick cooking spray. First take a long length of tinfoil and put a bit of non-stick spray on it. Now we’re ready to cook up some fun.
Food for Tin Foil Dinners
These are just a few things you could use for your tin foil dinners.
How to Make Tin Foil Dinners
1. First start with your seasoned, thawed hamburger pattie in the center of your tin foil. I recommend that your pattie be about a half to an inch thick for proper cooking all the way through. Be sure you remember to spray your tinfoil first with non-stick spray.
2. Next you’ll add your veggies around and on top of your pattie. I like to slice my veggies to make sure that they cook all the way through.
3. Add salt and pepper. If you’d like you could also add barbeque or steak sauce for a little more flavoring!
4. Wrap tin foil tightly together and seal the meat and veggies inside. Place on a 400 degree grill for about 30-35 minutes or until your hamburger is no longer pink and is cooked through.
One of the great things about these tin foil dinners is that that is an all-in-one dinner and the extra bonus is that it won’t heat up your whole home!
