Campfire Foil Packs

Recently we took a little 3 day camping trip to Lake Murray State Park in Oklahoma. It was beautiful and oh so peaceful!  While we were there we made this yummy recipe and I thought I'd share it with you.

These campfire foil packs are very easy to prepare and I believe you're going to love them as much as we do.  Oh and in case you aren't planning a camping trip anytime soon, these can be made at home on your grill or in the oven too.
First of all you need to decide what you want in your foil packs.  We chose smoked sausage (we like Eckrich skinless beef), yellow bell pepper, onion, zucchini, yellow squash, whole garlic cloves, salt and pepper.
Build your packet with the amount of goodies you think you need and top with a tablespoon of butter.
Fold up the sides of  your packets to form a good seal.  This keeps all the steam and juices in.  Place them on your campfire for about 20-30 minutes depending on how much you placed in your packs.  If you want to use your oven, it would be 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.  I marked our packs with H for hot and M for mild.  My honey loves his hot stuff, me, not so much!
Just look at this yumminess!  The combination of flavors is so good!  We made extras for the night we traveled home, that way I didn't have to cook after all the unpacking and such that goes on after a trip.  I've also made these at home and we had leftovers for lunches the next week.  Yum!
How about a few pictures of our trip?  If you follow my Instagram (ddcamp170) you've already seen these pictures, but if're welcome! :)  This is our rig just before we left our house early that morning.
This is our little camp site in the Oklahoma Lake Murray State Park in Cedar Cove, lot #10 to be exact.  The lake was just a rocks toss away.  We loved it!
The friends we met at the marina.  Can you see the giant fish in the water?  The marina had food to feed them too!  We went to the marina to purchase a one day fishing license for my honey, he loves to fish.
This is our first sunrise there.  I took this sitting on our "front porch" looking out toward the lake.  So quiet and peaceful there.
Here's my honey checking his minnow trap.  The Oklahoma minnows were way too smart for this trap, either that or they just were not hungry.  He never caught not even one even though there were thousands of them swimming around his feet.
And our final sunrise of the trip.  God's work is amazing isn't it?  We will definitely go back sometime soon.

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

We loved having you at the party, and cant wait to see what you share with us next week!


  4. Yes! We love doing corn, potato, and green beans in ours and put them on the grill. In the campfire sounds great too! Thanks for linking up at Show Me Saturday. Hope to see you there next week!
