Tinfoil Packet Cheesy Fries

Hi friends!  Easy, peasy meals are my favorite while camping.  Are you with me?!  I like to take as much of the mess and prep work out of meals as I possibly can.  It doesn’t get much easier that these Tinfoil Packet Cheesy Fries, truly!

With just three ingredients, you have the perfect, hearty side dish to pair with hamburgers or hot dogs!  Buying frozen fries and a bag of shredded cheddar cheese takes most of the preparation out of this recipe.  I picked and packed some fresh chives from the garden for garnish but you can totally omit them to make this meal even more straight forward.

For this simple camping recipe you will need…

Ingredients:

1 650g package McCain frozen french fries

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tbsp diced chives or green onions (optional)

Directions:

Double layer two large pieces of tinfoil appox. 12″x14″.

Layer fries and cheese, alternately create two layers.

Wrap in tinfoil, rolling ends tightly together creating a packet.

Place in the fire near the hot coals but not directly in the fire.

Allow to heat through and cook in the fire for about 15 minutes.

Top with green onions or chives.

Serve with ketchup for dipping.
