When it comes to RV cooking in the summer, the less you use the oven and stove the better. Both can heat up your space in a heartbeat making it uncomfortable and it puts stress on your air conditioner to keep up. That’s why I love foil packet meals.

Easy Foil Packet Meals for Camping

Foil Packet Meals Mean Less Clean Up

Foil packet meals over the campfire or grill mean less clean up and cooler temps inside your RV. You don’t have to dirty up pans or plates for that matter. Just open up your foil packet on your plate or heck, the picnic table, and dig in. Plus, they just taste amazing and are so quick to whip up!

Foil Packet Dinners are Perfect for Different Diets

And for those of us who have to cook for both meat lovers and vegetarians, there is little that’s easier meal-prep wise than foil packet dinners. Each family member gets their own personalized packet and they’re good to go. Todd and I get a little chicken or sausage in ours and our kids get veggies galore. Everyone is happy and well fed.

If you’re on the hunt for foil packet meals for your next camping or RV trip, enjoy these 11 I rounded up!
