If you’re planning a camping trip with family or friends soon, you may want to put a menu together to ensure you’re eating tasty and nutritious meals each day of your outdoor adventure. Foil-pack meals are a great way to prepare the foods you love when you’re outdoors, and you can simply throw the foil away once the food has been prepared.


Here are five decadent campfire meals you’ll want to make even after your camping trip has ended.

Cheesy Vegetable Foil Packs

These foil packs are a creative way to ensure that your loved ones are still getting a serving of veggies with their meals. You can choose a fresh vegetable for this easy meat-free side dish or include a combination of veggies for an even more flavorful addition to your meal. Asparagus seasoned with salt, pepper, lemon juice, and a topping of parmesan cheese makes a great addition to a chicken or fish dinner. You can also roast eggplant and zucchini together with olive oil and fresh herbs to add a gourmet touch to your campfire dinner. You can also make stuffed zucchini, tomatoes, or bell peppers in a foil pack and stuff the veggies with other healthy ingredients like pre-cooked rice or lentils for a filling and healthy recipe that can serve as an entree or a side dish.

Sausage and Peppers Foil Packs

Whether you want a hearty campfire breakfast or you’re looking for an easy dinner option, you can indulge in these sausage and pepper foil packs. Choose the sausage you’d like (vegetarian options are available as well), and add slices of bell pepper and onion to the foil pack. Drizzle the sausage and peppers with a little olive oil, sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper to bring out the flavor of the veggies. You can also add some chopped garlic to the pack and a pat of butter for more flavor. This delicious savory meal only takes minutes to prepare, and you can pair sausage and peppers with anything from scrambled eggs to a baked potato.

Berry Crisp Foil Packs

Looking for a decadent dessert you can enjoy around the campfire? Try these berry crisp foil packs. Add your favorite berries to the foil along with a topping of butter, oats, cinnamon, sugar, and a sprinkle of flour. Place the foil packs on the grill so the sugar from the fruit will caramelize and the topping becomes slightly crispy. This easy and delicious dessert is the perfect finishing touch for your campfire meal. While this recipe calls for berries, you can also use peaches or apples for this tasty dessert.

Cilantro Lime Seafood Foil Packs

Cilantro lime seafood foil packs allow you to have a fancy dinner while you’re camping or glamping. You can also find wholesale seafood online so you can purchase the entree options you want before your camping adventure and make sure there’s enough for everyone. The lime and cilantro add bright and herbaceous flavor to any seafood you include in your foil pack, including salmon, shrimp, whiting, or even pieces of lobster or crab. Customize your foil pack by adding onions, peppers, and your favorite green veggies such as broccoli or green beans to make your delicious low-carb meal complete.

Campfire French Toast

If you and your family want to wake up to a “home-cooked” meal when you’re camping, you’ll definitely want to try this delicious French toast recipe. You’ll need to plan ahead for this meal by stopping by the bakery and picking up your favorite bread before heading to the campground. Wrap the loaf of bread in foil and slice it into sections without cutting it all the way down. Cover the bread in a sweet egg custard and wrap the bread before placing it on the grill. Let the French toast cook for a few minutes then top with fresh fruit before serving. This tasty campfire meal will make you feel like you’re having breakfast at your favorite diner.


–These are just a few delicious recipes you can indulge in next time you go camping. Many of these dishes are filled with vitamins and minerals that can help you stick to your health goals even when you’re taking time to enjoy the great outdoors.
