5 Appetizing, Foil-Wrapped Campfire Recipes
I love foil-wrapped campfire recipes! Not just because they are yummy and convenient when food prepping and packing for a camping trip, but also because they make for easy clean-up, and leftover storage… That is, if you even have any leftovers–because these recipes are delicious!

I don’t know about you, but French fries are a family favorite. We don’t have them too often, but when we do, they’re cheesy!
- Bag Frozen Crinkle-Cut French Fries
- 1 Tablespoon Butter, melted
- 4 slices American Cheese
- 2 Tablespoons Bacon Bits
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Aluminum Foil
- In a saucepan, melt butter.
- Add frozen french fries, until coated.
- Next, using 1 or 2 slices of aluminum foil, create a boat for the fries.
- Layer the fries in the foil, and fold in all sides of foil, leaving the top slightly open.
- Then, place on grill, or in the oven, at 400° for 20-30 minutes. Stir at least once.
- Once the fries are cooked or crispy, top with cheese until it’s completely melted.
- Sprinkle with bacon and salt and pepper if needed.
Campfire Veggies Recipe
Nothing beats freshly roasted veggies! Pair with burgers and hot dogs, or enjoy them alone!
- 1 cup Red or Green Bell Peppers, chopped
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 cup Red Onion, chopped
- 3/4 teaspoon Salt
- Chop 1 cup of Red Potatoes
- 1 Tablespoon Herbes de Provence seasoning
- Chop 1 cup of Zucchini

- Heat grill or oven to 400°.
- Place all veggies into a bowl, and drizzle with olive oil.
- Mix in salt and Herbes de Provence seasoning until all veggies are coated.
- Place veggies on aluminum foil squares, and fold in to create a packet.
- Place on grill, or in oven, for 8-10 minutes on each side of the packet.
- To check the veggies, peel back one of the folds and check the potatoes. If the potatoes are done, the rest of the veggies should be done.
