9 Foil Pack Recipes for Grilling (and Clean Up) Made Easy

Foil packet cooking is popular for a number of reasons, with the best one being that everything cooks together in one pouch. Second best reason: There's little to no cleanup. Third best: They're easy to customize with different combinations of veggies and seasonings. Our favorite veggies to use typically consist of Hy-Vee Short Cuts pre-chopped produce to make prep time a breeze! The only question that remains: Why aren't we doing this every night? 

To adapt any of these recipes for the oven: Set the oven to 375 F and bake the foil packets until the meat reaches a desired temperature and the vegetables are fork-tender, about the same amount of time specified in the recipe.

  6. One-Pouch Feast

    We love this combo because the sausage flavors all the veggies while it cooks.
