What Are Grill Foil Packets + 4 Recipes

Call them what you like: grill foil packs, hobo packs, or aluminum foil packets. Food cooked in packets on the grill is a fun and easy way to get dinner on the table fast. "Grill Girl" Robyn Lindars shared in a recent video how to cook a delicious and healthy side during your camping trip using a grill, some sweet potatoes, and a roll of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

What Are Grill Foil Packets?

Grilling veggies doesn't have to be one-dimensional! Just as the name suggests, grill foil packets are sheets of foil filled with yummy, flavorful food like red potatoes, green beans, and zucchini. The sky is the limit when it comes to foil packet recipes.

First, preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Rip off a large piece of aluminum foil and fill with your food of choice. Drizzle in some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold the foil and crimp the packet so the food cannot fall out. Grill until done. Whether its for a cookout or weeknight dinners, this easy cleanup cooking style is perfect on the bbq.
