Make Ahead Foil Packets
If you are into meal prep for the week or you want simple meals to make ahead and freeze to take camping, these freezer-friendly foil packet meals are really good.
It took me a long time to realize I could “meal prep” my foil packet dinners and freeze them.
A few tips: Be sure the foil is wrapped tightly AND put them in a baggie before putting them in the freezer (should be good for about 2 months in your freezer).
Simply take out and defrost in your refrigerator (or cooler if camping) a day or 2 before you plan to cook them.
