Camping Recipes: Preparation: Foil Wrapped Complete Meals


Foil wrapped meals have been around as long as foil itself. One of the first uses of foil was reheating leftovers. At home, just wrap your leftovers in some foil and refrigerate until you get to the campground. Then just pop your foil packs onto a hot grill to reheat. If you feel more creative, try one of these foil wrapped meals from other campers.
