7 Tasty Foil Pack Foods You Can Cook Over A Campfire (Recipes)

Camping is super fun, but there's a tendency when you're roughing it to end up eating food that doesn't taste very good. How often do you find yourself munching on potato chips and cheap charred hot dogs for three meals in a row?

Well, friends, there's no reason you shouldn't be eating delicious meals with ease! You can prep some super tasty meals beforehand and wrap them individually in foil. (Note: You might want to keep said foil packs sealed in zip lock storage bags, or they might get soaked if some of your ice melts.) 

Then, all you need to do is toss them in the coals of your fire or char them on the grill and you're good to go!

1. Bacon Ranch Chicken Foil Packets

Honestly, I'm forever in debt to this recipe because I had no idea that RANCH BUTTER was a thing. Oh, and in case that still for some reason sounds mediocre, you get to douse everything in cheddar cheese and bacon, because life is really that good.

2. Pasta with Goat Cheese and Tomatoes

Pasta is such an easy food, and it always hits the spot. Pre-cook these noodles before you head out on your trip, so that all you need to do is warm the foil packs when you're ready to chow down.

3. Butter Garlic Herb Steak Foil Packets

It's always lovely to toss a huge slab of steak atop a hot grill, but this way actually works even better! The garlic and herb butter ensures that everything stays nice and tender, plus you get potatoes and veggies to round out the meal.

4. Indian Spiced Baked Potato and Egg Foil Packets

Curry-spiced potatoes are delectable for breakfast, lunch or dinner, but when you top them with a runny campfire-baked egg, things just elevate to a whole new level of delicious. This would also be tasty with cheese, ranch sauce, avocado and/or bacon!

5. Parmesan Chicken Foil Packets

Easy and versatile, you can make these with your favorite pasta sauce (you can also douse these in white sauce or pesto, for example) and your favorite grilled veggies. This would be fabulous served with some campfire-toasted crunchy bread or rolls.

6. Shrimp Boil with Potatoes and Corn on the Cob

Shrimp is a perfect campfire food, since it cooks up easily and quickly. Plus, it goes absolutely perfectly with corn, potatoes, lemon and brown butter seasoning. Yum!

7. Campfire Orange Cakes

Don't forget about dessert! Classic s'mores are always fabulous, but this easy, fruity charred cake is a wonderful way to go! Feel free to use any flavor of cake mix you like -- brownie batter would be fabulous too.
