A good meal while camping can go a long way. But cooking at a campsite can be difficult, messy and time consuming. My go to while camping is foil packet meals. It makes clean up simple, preparation is minimal and the meal always tastes great! These campfire foil packet potatoes are always a hit and are a great addition to any meal.
They are easy to prepare at the campsite but also offer the ease of preparing at home and keeping in the cooler. A lot of times at home I will make my foil packet meals and then keep them on ice in the cooler until it is time to cook.
