Tin Foil Dinner

Tin Foil Dinner

By Traeger Kitchen

This isn’t your typical campsite classic. Our tinfoil dinners are packed with tender stew meat, potatoes, peppers, herbs, and seasonings, then topped with a generous dollop of butter before getting sealed up and cooked over a Traeger wood fire.

Top each packet with a sprig of thyme and 2 tablespoons of butter. Fold the foil around the meat and vegetables to seal tightly. Place the packets on a rimmed baking sheet.
