One of the meals
that is always asked for every time we camp is foil packet
To make the packet:
Fold this in half to make a 6x9 rectangle, with the fold at the top. Now flip up the side, leaving a 1 inch fold at the bottom; turn over and repeat. If you did this right, it looks like a W from the side. This pleat is the bottom. Crimp the two sides by folding over and squeezing the edges tightly about three times.
Now stick your hand in the top and open up the packet so that it will stand up (the pleat opens into a flat bottom). It looks like a little foil bucket or lunch bag if you did it correctly.
This sounds complicated but it's really not that bad... and it works – I’ve never had these leak food or burn.
Now layer in the food. Do not overfill. If the person eating wants more than the bag can hold, they should make 2 bags instead of 1 giant one. When I do this with my girls I just make a few extra out of the leftovers, they always seem to be eaten.
To put in the food:
Crimp the top and mark as you like.(We use permanent markers)
