Anyone do them?
Silence can never be misquoted.
I haven't in a while but I used to. I did do potatoes last weekend on the grill in a foil packet and they were yummy but needed more seasoning.
What do you like do in them?

I do this for fish. I put in some lemon and pepper and thinly slivered vegetables. Works very well and no clean up.
Many many years ago, I had foil meals. Stews, to desserts. But I don't do them at all now. I try to stay away from cooking and baking with aluminum foil for health reasons the last several years.

Don' t know. I haven't done these since I was 10 years old in the Girl Scouts. We made burger patties, and put potatoes, onions and some seasonings, closed the foil, and set amongst the coals of a fire. I remember it being good.
Saw it mentioned somewhere this morning, and just wondered if anyone had any recipes.

Can I ask what health reasons?
Back in those days folks cooked their food, not built a shrine to it.
Aluminum has supposedly been linked to Alzheimer's and probably other diseases/conditions.

I do them occasionally with a variety of things--chicken breast, pork chop, hamburger patty, or round steak for meat, onion, mushrooms, potatoes, bell pepper, zucchini, and/or other vegetables. Salt, pepper, and and a little butter.

I have done this for years. I do hamburger, chicken, fish and lots of veggies. I do it when I do not want alot of dishes to have. Easy and good way.
There is not proof that doing this cause any kind of disease. Back in the 80's they thought it was the cause however, since then nothing has been proven. I do not pay any attention to stuff like that. If I did there would be nothing one could eat, because bottom line, they have come up with something for just about everything we eat. I have like I said done this for years, and I am healthy.
A friend of mine, three years ago had been diagnosed with metal poisoning and lost her sense of taste. The doctor had to do a full analysis on the friend to figure out how she became contaminated. The doctor looked at the metal in the partial the friend wore if that could have caused the problem. The doctor also wanted to know in the friends daily life style if anything else she consumed orally had any form of metal in the contents which could have been linked to the metal poisioning. The friend was advised to stay away from anything cooked or baked with aluminum foil to be on the safe side. Since then, I have decided to refrain more then I already was not using aluminum foil while baking and cooking.
CIK!! IT always takes a smart a$$ in the crowd. Which of course if you are around one always has some sort of joke to deal with.
enjoynature, thanks to you and CIK.
I do not like food cooked in Magnalite pots, as they tend to give a tinny taste to the food.
I have made foil dinners with the Cub Scouts at their Day Camp. We used hamburger, onions, potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, yellow squash, and "gravy" of mushroom soup and onion soup mix.
Have also used chicken breasts which were sprinkled with dry Italian dressing mix.
Not something I do at home, but is great for camping.
Some days, I can literally see the testosterone floating in the air around here.
