How to Make a Foil Pack

1. Lay out a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, shiny-side up, on a surface and place the ingredients in the center.
2. Pull the sides and ends of the foil up; fold and crimp to seal into a pouch, leaving room for steam.
3. Place the packet on the grill or over campfire coals to cook. Serve right out of the foil (watch out for steam when opening).

Foil packs work best with vegetables, fruit and fish. Leave the packs on the grill without moving them and you'll get grill marks right through the foil!
