It's a Wrap!!

I love easy dishes to make. The fail proof foil dishes are spectacular in that its all in one easy, mess free, easy clean up package.
Because lord knows... I would rather not do the dishes! So here are a few of my families favorites!

Fish Foils
(ok so this is my favorite(s) not my boys hate fish :)
Tilapia, Cod, Salmon, Halibut: any will do or use another fish if its what you like best.

Create a square piece of foil and spray non shiny side with pam cooking spray. Place one tablespoon of butter in the center. Place washed fish on top. Sprinkle with your favorite seasoning ie: Cajun, Northwoods, Lemon Pepper, Old Bay, ect

Add to this vegis that you have on hand ie: fresh green beans, pealed and sliced carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, canoli beans, sliced red potatoes, mushrooms,  asparagus, ect

A quick dash of salt and pepper and your good to go!

Bring the sides of the foil together and fold creating a package. Fold in the sides and seal by making a couple folds. Once your foil packet is all folded, put on cookie sheet and set into a pre heated 350* oven for 30 minutes.  One foil package for each person.

Want to skip the fish? Use chicken or pealed and cleaned shrimp. Want to skip the meat all together? Load up the veggies :)

Foiled Potatoes now this is where my boys come into play... they love love these!

Preheat your oven to 350* and prepare your foil sheets with pam spray like above and include the pat of butter.
Peel and Slice russet potatoes and slice (making your slices even thickness will result in even baking time and doneness)
On top of your potatoes sprinkle salt and pepper. Slice an yellow onion and add 3 sliced rings to the top.  Add a nice amount of shredded cheese (insert your favorite kind here) and top with chunks of crisp bacon...(you can also use turkey bacon or even ham!) and seal that puppy up! Bake for 35-40 minutes until potatoes are tender. (i usually stick a knife right thru the foil and if it slides in easily your good :)
