Cooking Products Go In and Out

A lot of cooking materials and products go in and out of style.  We were all obsessed with cast iron skillets for a while, now the healthy crowd is all about-spiralizers.  Despite these fun fads, some cooking methods will just never go away.

Tin Foil Dinner

One of those is tin foil dinners.  I absolutely love a good tin foil dinner recipe.  They can be incredibly easy, and they always taste so, so good.  Plus, it always feels a bit like you’re camping when you eat them.  I actually had a friend once who hated doing dishes so much that he exclusively made tin foil dinners just to eat out of the foil packets, skipping plates entirely.  That is not why I love tin foil dinners, but I do adore them.  They’re just so easy and tasty.

Recipe Tested In RecipeLion Test Kitchen

This Quick and Easy Tin Foil Dinner we made in the Test Kitchen is so easy that you’ll be tempted to make it every single night of the week.  Our recipe includes beef, potatoes, onions, and mushrooms.  It’s hearty and traditional.  If you feel like experimenting, you could easily toss in a few other veggies, too!

    Thank you so much for inspiring me on the chicken dinner. We always use tin foil for bbq. Meat up on the grill, potatoes and veggies down into the charchoral. Good thing is you don´t need any fat. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe
