Tin-Foil Dinners

  1. Use heavy-duty aluminum foil, place shiny side in. Spray with non-stick spray to prevent sticking.
  2. Create foil packets by wrapping foil around food using a drug-store wrap: Use foil 3-
    times the width of the food. Fold sides up creasing foil at edge of food. Keeping edges
    together, make a ½ to a 1 inch fold and crease.
  3. Fold 1-3 times, leaving enough room in the packet for food expansion and steaming during cooking.
  4. Smooth the ends flat, make four small triangle folds on each end from the edge of the
    food to the edge of the foil. Fold the ends in using ½ inch folds.
  5. Some people say that if you put a cabbage leaf in the bottom of the packet, it will stop the
    food from burning. The cabbage will burn but not the food.
