FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I make these foil packets ahead of time?

A: Absolutely! You can prepare the foil packets in advance, making sure to tightly seal them. Keep them refrigerated until you’re ready to cook. Just note that the cooking time may be slightly longer for chilled packets.

Q: Can I use different proteins instead of ground beef or turkey?

A: Yes! Feel free to customize your foil packets by using chicken, sausage, or even seafood like shrimp. Adjust the cooking time accordingly depending on the protein you choose.

Q: Can I add other vegetables to the packets?

A: Absolutely! This recipe serves as a great base, and you can add or swap vegetables based on your preferences. Consider adding mushrooms, corn, asparagus, or any other vegetable you enjoy.

Q: Can I cook these packets in the oven instead of on a grill or campfire?

A: Definitely! If you prefer to cook indoors, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until the meat is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

Q: Can I make vegetarian foil packets?

A: Absolutely! To make vegetarian foil packets, simply omit the meat and add more vegetables or plant-based proteins like tofu or chickpeas. You can also season with your favorite herbs and spices for added flavor.
