Everyone wants to eat well when they are RVing but no one wants to spend a lot of time cooking and cleaning up. Who can blame them? It’s supposed to be a vacation away from work and as many chores as possible. So cooking food in foil packets can be the perfect answer. You can clean, cut, and pack in the morning and then spend the rest of the day doing whatever you want to do.
The concept is simple. You use sheets of heavy duty tinfoil and your favorite meats, potatoes, rice, veggies, and fruit. Seal it all up into a little tinfoil pillow and drop them on the grill.
Here are a few things to try:
Drop some shrimp onto the foil and dollop some softened butter mixed with parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. It’s simple and delicious.
Zucchini and Tomatoes:
These veggies will be steamed and tasty. Slice and dice a couple of zucchini and tomatoes to your liking. sprinkle them with olive oil, garlic, basil, salt & pepper. They only need to cook for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and you are good to go.
Layer some lovely Salmon fillets with dill sprigs and lemon slices. Sprinkle with brown sugar, ground coriander, and some salt. Add a little whole grain mustard on top then seal the foil and get ready for a delicious dinner.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes
You have to have dessert and these will fill the bill. Drop a spoon of brown sugar and some butter on the tinfoil. Add a slice of pineapple and a maraschino cherry. Top that with a shortcake and get them on the grill. The smell will bring the neighbors over to find out what’s cooking.
There really is so much more you can cook in foil packs. Is only limited to your imagination. Go ahead, spare yourself some time washing dishes. You’ll be glad you did.
