18 Foil-Pack Dinners For Easy Weeknight Grilling

StyleCaster | Christine Byrne

Have you ever tried making a foil-pack dinner on the grill? If you have, you understand what all the fuss is about. If you haven’t—well, you’re missing out. Basically, you portion out your ingredients, then pile them along with seasonings and sauce or oil onto a big piece of foil. Once everything is on, you bunch up the foil into individual packets, then throw them onto a hot grill (or a sheet pan on a hot grill, if you’re worried about dripping) and let everything cook together.

Now, foil-pack dinners aren’t exclusively for the grill. In fact, a few of the recipes below suggest that you make them in the oven. You can opt to do that, or you can just heat your grill to the recommended oven temperature and keep from heating up the whole house. Your call. While most foil-pack dinners call for a combination of meat and vegetables, there are also seafood and vegetarian options included in the list below. In other words, there’s something for everyone in the world of foil-pack grilling. Are you sold yet? If not, you soon will be.
