Meals that are easily prepared and cleaned up are the best way to go when camping. It alleviates a lot of stress from your trip. Planning what you’re going to have ahead of time can save you from a headache or unhappy campers. We put together some simple recipes that can all be made on a grill wrapped in foil for simplicity.
Loaded Campfire Fries
All you have to do is toss frozen French fries with a little bit of melted butter and then make foil boats to put them in. After you do that place the boats on indirect heat and cover for 20-30 minutes, stirring once. Top the boats with your favorite toppings (cheese, chives, bacon, etc) and cook for about 2 more minutes. Viola, you have loaded campfire fries.
Shrimp Boil in Foil
This one is definitely my favorite. Tear off 4 large pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil around 12 inches for each and place 2 of them on each baking sheet. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Add your chopped potatoes, corn, sausage, and shrimp evenly among the 4 pieces of foil. Keep everything in a single layer in the middle of the foil. Drizzle some olive oil over it all and then add salt, pepper & Old Bay seasoning. Place the folded-up foil on indirect heat and cover for 20-30 minutes.
Who doesn’t love grilled veggies?! Chop up your favorites throw them in a bowl and add your favorite seasoning & a little bit of oil. Wrap them up in individual foil boats & place over indirect heat on the grill and cover for 20-30 minutes depending on the vegetable (ex. Carrots take longer than zucchini). Check on them until they are at your desired softness and enjoy!
This DIY dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser because everyone can build their own. Chop up your favorite fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches), grab some mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and waffle cones and you’ll be set! Have everyone fill their cone with their desired ingredients. Then wrap the entire cone in foil and grill them for 5-7 minutes (rotating a few times). You’re ready to enjoy this delicious treat.
