Wordful Notes: This dish inspired by Campfire Potato & Cheese Bake and Reynold's Foil Packet Recipes. This was an exploration of food for me, too.

What I would do differently:
  • slice carrots or leave them out - they didn't get tender enough
  • MORE veggies! definitely more peppers. and potatoes. and... yeah, more.
  • bake at correct temp
  • add extra marinade to packets
  • I think the dish would have been improved by being served over rice. I believe there is a way to do rice in the packets... I will be looking into it.
