Grilling with Foil Packs

One of my favorite things to do is to go hiking in Norway.  The scenery is spectacular and combined with family and delicious food, it can hardly get much better.  My aunt has been making these foil packs for me since I was just a tiny tot, and I thought you might enjoy this idea as well.   This is not a meal that you need a recipe for, as you can be very creative with what you put in these foil packs, but I thought I would get you started….


olive oil

chopped carrots, small dice

chopped potatoes, small dice

diced onion


meat substitute of your choice (Seitan Tidbits)

seasonings of your choice (Herb mix)




With a piece of foil shape a little ditch with your hand.  Then add the oil, carrots, potatoes, onion, corn, meat substitute, seasoning, and salt.  Close foil so that steam will not escape.  Cook on the grill until vegetables are tender.

    Well, that looked like lots of fun and some good eating while hiking. Scenery was beautiful! Guess I’ll have to do that in Arkansas instead of Norway, but we have some beautiful mountains here also.
