You can cook a whole host of things in foil. One of my favorites is
shrimp, snow peas, sliced red bell peppers, green onions and sliced water
chestnuts. Sometimes I add mushrooms.
Peel and devein shrimp, wash snow peas, slice peppers, onions in 1-2 inch
pieces, sliced chestnuts from can. Put on foil with a bit of butter and a
few drops of water. Seal tightly. Do not place on coals but clear spot on
hot ground. Foil packs there with a few coals on top. Takes about 10 minutes
We have also made stuffed green peppers in foil by cooking rice and beef
ahead of time, mixing with mushroom soup and stuffing peppers on site.
Most anything you bake, including cakes, can be made in foil. For cakes,
make them cupcake size, shape foil like a cup to hold batter, leave lots of
room for expansion when you close up. Again, cook on hot ground in a hollow
For treat, peel bananas part way. Push chocolate chips into pulp. Put peels
back, wrap in foil and bake a few minutes in coals. Great hot dessert.
And, oc course, you can always bake apples or pears. Core, fill with raisins,
brown sugar, butter, maybe some cinnamon. Gather foil around and close at top
but do not seal tight so steam can escape. Bake in hollow of coals.
