Foil-wrapped recipes are easy, require few cooking utensils, and leave little to cleanup. They can easily be adjusted to feed one person or a crowd. If you're cooking outdoors, all you need is some foil and a charcoal grill or campfire. If you're cooking at home, just pop the foil pack in the oven. Below are numerous foil-wrapped recipes using various primary ingredients.

Campfire Hobo Stew, a camping recipe from S.A. Lee. This is an easy, economical and healthy recipe. We usually set up the ingredients buffet style and then form an assembly line.
Campfire Comfort Chicken, a camping recipe from Patty. This recipe will make anyone enjoy the comfort of a warm fire, and help bring a family together.
Grilled Rainbow Trout, a camping recipe from Reba. This is our son's favorite camping recipe. He usually eats 2-3 trout at one meal. If we all catch our limit, we usually have other campers who are happy to join us for a meal. Hope you like it.
Foil Packs, a camping recipe from Cindi Stokes. Our scouts do this recipe the first night of every camping trip.
Ham, a camping recipe from Kelly Harbert. This recipe is easy, quick, and so much better than the usual hotdogs and hamburgers most campers have for dinner.
Campfire Baked Potato, a camping recipe from Cody561. This recipe makes an awesome baked potato.
Sausage and Chicken Jambalaya, a camping recipe from JRzMom. I served this at last year's family camping reunion and got rave reviews. There wasn't a lick of it leftover and, since I prepared it all at home, there was nothing to clean up!
Campfire Corn on the Cob, a camping recipe from D Wilgus. My kids love this recipe when we go camping. It is so easy and the corn will be really tender. It is a cheap and easy side dish for a campfire meal.
