As a kid, I used to love putting together things like banana, chocolate buds and vanilla together and cooking it in the oven in an aluminium foil envelope.
The gooey delicious food was always hot and delicious, served with some ice cream (yummm!) — makes my mouth watering just thinking about it.
My family did this a lot when we were camping too — putting a few different ingredients that we might like into foil, folding it over and cooking for about 10 minutes.
I came across them again recently, and I felt quite a bit of nostalgia. And I’m looking forward to getting in the kitchen with my kids to try a few different styles of ‘foil cooking’. In the US, they call this style of cooking, ‘hobo dinners’. So, here are 20 mess-free foil packet meals you need to make now.
