Foil-Packet Father's Day Faves
Fire up the grill and show the No. 1 guy in your life some love.
Foil packets lock in flavor and cut down on dishes, but they also make grilling super easy. If Dad is the OG griller in your family, give him a break this weekend and assume his post at the grill. And don't worry if this is new territory for you — foil is here to help.
Grilling in foil need not be all fish and vegetables. (Although if Dad's into that, go for it.) Start his day with a grilled — yes, grilled! — breakfast.
Healthy Grilled French Toast Foil Packets are sure to impress him; we have a feeling he won't even know they're healthy. He'll get all the buttery, syrup-topped goodness of traditional French toast, and you won't have to clean a griddle afterward.
Taking Dad out for Father's Day wings might sound like a nice idea, but consider this: A lot of other people might have the same thought. Kick back at home and avoid the crowds. An easy spice rub gives these foil-pack wings a craveworthy flavor that's just the right balance of sweet and spicy.
For a delicious lunch that won't taste like you whipped it up in a half-hour, look to Chipotle Beer-and-Butter Shrimp Foil Packs. What's not to love about a recipe that includes beer and butter, especially on Father's Day? Serve the cumin-spiced shrimp and sauce over rice, and let Dad finish the beer you opened to make this stellar dish.
Your Father's Day menu won't be complete without a meaty pick, and this Grilled BBQ Meatloaf Foil Pack is sure to hit the spot. It's made with a mixture of ground beef and ground turkey and flavored from the inside out with barbecue sauce. (Feel free to use Dad's favorite.)
Dad does so much for you — he deserves a treat. Grilled Peach Crisp Foil Packs are like summer served in mess-free bowls. Fill peach halves with a buttery brown sugar mixture, then grill till they're tender and caramelized. Crunchy granola and creamy frozen yogurt will go quite well with the sweet fruits, but, really, whatever Dad wants, Dad should get.
