Hi Hungry Girl,

Now that it's summertime, I want to put my grill to use. I love how easy your foil-pack recipes are... Can those be made on a grill?

Hi Gina,

Hungry Girl Foil Packs on the Grill

Yup! You can totally grill up a foil pack -- you just have to make a couple of adjustments to the recipe...

Cook time: Grill your foil pack for about half of the given time, with the grill cover down. Who doesn't love a timesaver?

Temperature conversions: While some grills can be preheated to a specific temperature (with built-in features or fancy tools), most people rely on standard heat settings. So just follow these handy-dandy conversions...

If the recipe calls for a 375-degree oven, grill your foil pack over medium heat.

If the recipe calls for a 400-degree oven, grill your foil pack over medium-high heat.

If the recipe calls for a 425-degree oven, grill your foil pack over high heat.

More foil-grilling 411: Keep a baking sheet or large plate nearby, so that you can transfer the hot foil pack to it as soon as the pack is done cooking. Oven mitts are also helpful. And remember to use heavy-duty foil, leave room for steam to form above the food, and tightly seal the pack. Speaking of which, always cut the pack to release steam before opening it entirely. That steam is hot!
