With so many fun things to see and do while RVing, it hardly feels like there is any time to stop and make food. But you need to eat — and eat well — while camping out to keep up your energy for all your adventures. Thankfully, you can count on these foolproof foil pack recipes for RVers to satisfy your cravings without taking up a lot of time.
Quick Note: Before making each foil pack recipe, make sure to fire up the grill or campfire to get it nice and hot. Then, prepare your cookware by simply pulling four 18×12 inch pieces of foil off the roll.
Potato and Egg Bake
Start your day out right by whipping up potato and egg bakes in a convenient foil pack. To make this recipe, you will need:
- 30 ounce package of shredded hash browns
- 2 cups of shredded cheese
- 1 cup of diced ham, bacon, or sausage
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk
Once you have your ingredients ready, start by cracking your eggs into a mixing bowl. Then, whip them up with the milk and season well. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until well combined. After that, just divide the combined ingredients between the foil and fold the edges to keep the eggs from leaking out.
With that done, just put the packs on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes. When the potatoes are done through, you are ready to eat.
When gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free vegan eating is on order, there’s nothing better to make than curry cauliflower foil packs.
To create this fantastic treat, you will need:
- 1 pound of diced potatoes
- 1 pound of chopped cauliflower
- 1 cup of diced onions
- 1 cup of peas
- 1 cup of grape tomatoes
- 1 cup of chopped tofu
- Two tablespoons of melted coconut oil
- Two tablespoons of curry powder
- One tablespoon of lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients together, then separate across four foil packs. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top, then fold the edges of the foil to keep everything sealed inside. You should cook the packs for seven minutes on each side or until the potatoes are soft.
When nothing else will do but a big plate of poutine, put the foil packs to the test with this recipe. You will need:
- Two pound bag of your favorite frozen fries
- Two tablespoons of melted butter
- Eight ounces of cheese curds (or shredded cheese of your choice)
- Two cups of brown poutine gravy
- Diced chives
To assemble, split the fries evenly between the foil packs and cover each stack with ½ tablespoon of melted butter. Seal the edges of the foil and grill for about 10 minutes. Then, remove them from the grill and while working carefully to avoid the steam, open the foil back up. Add the cheese curds, seal the foil, and grill again for six minutes.
After that, you can open the foil and add the gravy before heating it all back up again for a couple minutes more. Once it is done, sprinkle the diced chives over the top and enjoy.
Salsa chicken makes an excellent meal and it only takes a few minutes to prepare. For this dish, grab:
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 2 cups of instant rice
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 1 diced bell pepper
- 1 cup of corn
- 2 cups of salsa
- 1 cup of shredded cheese of your choice
You will first need to mix together the instant rice, broth, and one cup of salsa in a bowl. Let the rice seep for about 20 minutes to soak up most of the liquid. Mix in the corn and diced bell pepper, then divide the mixture between the foil packs.
Place the chicken breast on top, pour over the rest of the salsa, and season to your liking, then seal it up and cook for 10 minutes. Rotate the pack on the grill and cook another 10 minutes before opening up the foil to add the cheese. Let everything sit for about five minutes so the cheese melts, then serve.
When dessert calls your name, just make a berry crisp to remember. The ingredients you will need include:
- 4 cups of mixed berries
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- 1/3 cup of diced pecans
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
Mix up the berries and lemon juice in one bowl. Then, combine all the other ingredients in another. Layer each mixture on your foil packs, and then seal them shut. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, then allow to cool for five minutes before serving. If you run out of foil, or just prefer to take a different route, this recipe also works well in a cast iron pan. You may need to cook it a little bit longer, however, to cook the crust and berries through.
When making each foil pack recipe, heed all campfire and gas grill safety tips to avoid disastrous results. Even though the foil packs do all the cooking for you, it is still important to keep the food well attended while it cooks. That way, you can respond to any flareups or other problems that could arise while making your tasty meals.
