30 Camping Tin foil Dinners

You all certainly love your camping recipes!

Last weeks 45 Easy Camping Recipe Round Up was a huge success. It quickly jumped to my most viewed post for the week and emails started pouring in with requests. Today’s post is for all of you on the hunt for some amazing

Tin Foil Dinner Recipes

These are a few of our personal favorites.

Most are super simple recipes. Add all of your ingredients to a foil pack and cook!

Did I mention how easy the clean up is?? Wad up that paper and toss it into the garbage.

All super important things to consider when you are in the great outdoors where resources are limited.

Tips for creating perfect tin foil dinners:

  1. Use heavy duty foil. The last thing you want to happen when you are handling a tin foil dinner is to have the foil give out or rip. Heavy duty foil ensures that your dinner will stay safe and sound during the cooking process.
  2. Know how to fold a tin foil packet. You want to fold your packet in a way that allows the cooking to be even. Follow this super simple tutorial. As a result, you will have perfect recipes every time!
  3. Prep before you leave. Chop your veggies, slice the chicken, or even put the packets together before you head out. This makes for a more enjoyable camping experience. Less stress while you cook means more time to enjoy your vacation!
  4. Don’t skip the non-stick spray!

So without dragging this on further… Here are the recipes!
