Tin Foil Dinner for Camping


Today’s post is about a Tin Foil dinner. I was going through some of my pictures last night and realized how much fun it is to camp in the wilderness. I was particularly looking at photos from a Glacier National Park camping trip. Each time we have gone camping there, we have made tin foil dinners. They are super easy to make and taste like stew when they are done! These days if I am too lazy to cook, I make these tin foil dinners. All you do is place cut vegetables on the top of square piece of tin foil, wrap it and cook in the oven.

For this particular recipe, I used carrots, zucchini, onion, bell peppers and slices of steak, but you can use almost any vegetables or meat you like. I have also used hamburger and it worked great. For spices, I used Italian seasonings, salt, black pepper, basil and oregano. This recipe makes 4 to 5 tin foil dinners.

1 bell pepper sliced
1 onion sliced
1 cup baby carrots halved
1 lb steak sliced
1 zucchini sliced
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1 teaspoon oregano
Black pepper
Vegetable oil
Aluminum foil (cut into four or five large squares)


1. Divide vegetables and meat and place on the top of aluminum foil. Sprinkle spices on top and add a touch of vegetable oil.DSC_9290-002

2. Wrap the aluminum foil, and bake them at 400 degree F for 35 minutes. (If you are camping, just put them on a grill over some nice hot coals.) DSC_9299-002 DSC_9302-0023. Enjoy with nice green salad. DSC_9324-002
