Keep the temp inside your house cool by heating up your outdoor grill for dinner! Our foil dinner on the grill is an easy dinner idea. Foil dinners are great for camping in the great outdoors, or even in your backyard. One of the great things is this dinner — it’s as delicious as it is easy.
How do you make dinner in a foil packet?
A simple summer dinner idea, making dinner in a foil packet is both fun and tasty. Try putting beef, chicken or fish along with veggies in your aluminum foil packet. Make sure to season it and add a little extra moisture in the form of a marinade or other liquid. Folding down the foil packet seals in the juices and flavors. You’ll get a delicious, tender meal.
Ground beef and veggie foil dinner
Our foil dinner on the grill is a healthy summer dinner recipe. It features ground beef, potatoes, onions, peppers, carrots and green beans. It’s slowly cooked in our In Fine Taste Best Hamburger Marinade, which has delightful flavors!
The very best marinade
First make a double recipe of In Fine Taste Best Hamburger Marinade.
How to flavor the veggies
Dip each kind of vegetable in marinade and lightly shake off excess liquid; then set aside.
Best hamburger marinade
Mix ground beef with remaining marinade and use your hands to gently blend marinade into meat. Be careful not to handle too much or meat will become tough.
Use a double thickness of foil
Form ground beef into four equal sized (1/4 pound) round patties. Next, spray interior side of 4 pieces of foil with Pam spray. Then lay vegetables in middle of foil. We like to use a double thickness of foil to keep the juices inside.
Stacking the packet
Lay the ground beef patty on top of vegetables and lightly sprinkle with garlic salt. Next, make your foil packet: Fold long sides of foil up and together, then turn down edges creating a tent. Continue to fold edges down and fold up short edges of foil to seal. Finally, fold foil packet into a second piece of foil and seal.
Place the foil packets on an outdoor grill. (Flip over half way through.) You could also do this in the coals of a campfire, or in your home oven. Remove from grill and cool to warm before serving. The foil will be hot! We like to eat these dinners served with a dollup of barbeque sauce.
