This week I’m using Aluminum Foil to show you how this versatile product can help you cook 3 different foods for a complete meal. We’re making hamburgers, corn on the cob and a yummy Banana Boat dessert – all with the help of Aluminum Foil!
Using an aluminum foil packet for your hamburgers will help you retain the juice in your burger so each bite is as tasty as the first. Place each patty on an individual small square of Reynolds Foil (I add a couple of rings of onion on top of my patty). Pull up both sides of the foil and bring them together in the center. Fold them down twice and then fold up the sides toward the center to create a packet, leaving some room inside for air to circulate. After about 4-5 minutes on each side you will have the most perfectly juicy burger thanks to Aluminum Foil!
No grilling meal is complete without corn on the cob and Aluminum Foil helps with that too. Tear off a generous size piece of foil and place the corn in the middle of the foil. Rub the corn with butter and sprinkle with salt and any other seasonings. Now just wrap up the corn and to the grill they go. Roll the ears occasionally to make sure that they cook evenly. After about 10 minutes, stick a fork through the foil to test for doneness. Fork check in more than one spot, since cooking can be uneven. Kernels will be soft when the corn is done. Remove from grill and cool a bit.Take foil off and eat. You’ll have moist, buttery grilled corn.
After our yummy grilled meal it’s time for dessert and you guessed it we use Aluminum Foil again! We’re making Banana Boats! You’ll need mini marshmallows, milk chocolate chips, and unpeeled bananas.
Cut a slit lengthwise about two-thirds of the way through the banana from the stem to the base. Carefully lift the banana peel back. Push some mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips right on top of the banana and then close the banana back up with the peel. Wrap the banana tightly with your Aluminum Foil. Place the bananas right on the grill for about 5-8 minutes. You are left with ooey-goey goodness that the whole family with devour within seconds.
So there you have it. Dinner from start to finish using with just your grill and Aluminum Foil!
