Make dinner simple, less mess, and outside with these Beef & Veggie Foil Packs. This post is written in partnership with The Produce Gathering, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
A few weeks ago, we went on a little camping trip and of course food is a big priority when camping. It’s easy to work up an appetite when you are outside all day, but there is also the need for something you can make outdoors too.
These Beef & Veggie Foil Packs are just the ticket, they are super easy and can be customized to your taste. For instance, when we went on our camping trip we had them with potatoes, carrots, and onions. This time I made them at home with green beans, potatoes, and onions. Beef & Veggie Foil Packs are a great way to use fresh produce that you already have on hand.
I decided to make these using Cattle Tracks Organic Ground Beef that I picked up at The Produce Gathering. The main difference being the quality of beef but also there is so much less oil and grease from the beef. I felt like it made the foil packs much lighter and didn’t coat the veggies with too much grease either.
I decided to make these with sliced potatoes, snapped green beans, and then a little bit of diced onion. Once you have that in your foil pack, top it with a beef patty and seasoning. I opted for rosemary, garlic salt, and a bit of fennel seed for ours. It’s truly up to you on how you prefer to do it.
At this point, you can either grill them outside over a campfire or on the grill in foil packs or if you are making these at home, you can opt to put them in the oven too. I love that each foil pack is perfectly portioned for each family member. My kids loved these and I also like that if I have extra veggies they can pick which ones they want in theirs. It makes for a lot less fussing at dinner time.
