Summer is in full swing, and here in the deep south the heat and humidity means that I am not turning my oven on any more than I absolutely have to! We have easy Foil Packs on repeat! They are easy, require no oven and there is practically zero clean up!

How do you cook a foil pack dinner?
A foil pack recipe equates to a super easy, no mess dinner! Win, win, if you ask me. These magical little packets are filled with ingredients, spices and sometimes extras like butter or cheese, then wrapped up tightly and cooked.
These recipes are great for camping, because you can prep the ingredients ahead of time and just wrap them up and toss them on the grill. They’re also just great for a no fuss supper! I think they are especially perfect if you are cooking for those with allergies or picky kiddos.
Since each dinner is individually wrapped, you can cater the ingredients based on each personal preference. Better yet, just set out the ingredients buffet style and have everyone make their own! Everyone gets exactly what they want!
Can I cook a Sheet Pan Dinner as a Foil Pack Recipe?
You bet you can! That’s right, turn off that oven! Assemble these sheet pan dinners inside foil packs and grill or cook over a campfire instead.
- Sausage and Green Beans (keto, low carb)
- Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas (keto, low carb)
- Garlic Butter Salmon & Broccoli (keto, low carb)
Note: This isn’t a great option for sheet pan dinners that you want to get crispy (like this one). Foil packs steam the insides, and the foil blocks any direct heat from crisping up the edges.
