Meal in Foil

Rated as 4.27 out of 5 Stars

"I brought this treat to my family after working as a Girl Scout leader. It's a great way to let kids make their own meal. You may make these packages as large as you want for hearty appetites, allowing a little more time for cooking. This is great for pool parties, camping, etc."

A good base, but could have used some more flavor. When we go camping, we do something similar but over the campfire. Try adding fresh green beans, canned corn, mushrooms, garlic powder, and sea...

I fixed the meals at home then placed them in a well packed cooler, then cooked them on my portable grill. Its a nice way to end a day full or four wheeling fun.
