According to the New York Times food section and a recent food trends story in US News and World Report written by my friend and colleague, Joan Salge Blake, foil-pack dinners are one of hottest food trends for 2019. Cooking in foil packets is easy. There’s no mess and no fuss. All you need is aluminum foil and a sheet pan. It’s that easy. Grab your favorite protein — cod, salmon or shrimp; boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs; tofu — add a few vegetables and a tasty sauce, wrap it all up, bake, and dinner is served.
When I was a kid, I spent my summers at sleep-away camp. I can still remember toasting marshmallows and cooking meals over a campfire. I can still taste those sweet and gooey s’mores. When I read about the foil-pack dinner trend, I could definitely relate, so I set out to create a new recipe for Cod, Carrot & Green Bean Foil Packets to share with my family and with all of you. And then I decided to reach out to some fellow food and nutrition bloggers to find out about their favorite foil-pack dinners. So here’s a round up of 13 recipes for you to try. The last few on the list are made in parchment paper, but you could easily use foil instead if that’s easier.
