I’m a fan of anything that makes cooking a delicious, nutritious dinner for my family quicker and easier. Foil packets definitely fall in that category. With a foil packet, or pack, you prep your ingredients, wrap everything in aluminum foil, heat, and eat. The flavors and seasonings intensify within the packet and yield a tender, mouthwatering dish. Even better, cleanup afterward is a breeze. Today we’ve gathered several creative foil packet meals that will make you look forward to answering “What’s for dinner?”
