Well gosh, I just realized today I’ve never put this yummy recipe here on my blog. I have a bunch yet to get here. I’ve had this on my mind and came here to print it out, and low and behold, twasn’t here!
For those that want quick and easy, you’ll want to print this one out to put in your “to do” pile. It’s kinda hot these days to be standing by a hot grill… but the beauty of this one is that once on the grill, by the time you step back inside the AC to whirl up a tasty beverage like my Frothy Brazilian Lemonade, supper’s ready!
I’ve actually done this recipe for Carolina Country Magazine and a couple other clients too, tweaked with their products, so take your pick below!
These packets are camping friendly too. Just make your packets at home and keep nice and cold in your cooler or refrigeration for enjoying the best meal in the campground! In mere minutes.
Bonus: just fold the foil packet open and eat right out of there… making cleanup a breeze too.
So “packet” up and enjoy y’all! And since I’m sharing this today…
Happy 4th of July. And Happy Birthday America.
If you love country ham, you’ll enjoy this packet recipe!
