Foil Pack Mac 'n Cheese (Campfire Style)

Picture taken before taking up to campsite.

Fun "tinfoil dinner" for the kids while camping. Even older "kids" (aka grandpa) loved it!

(For each one)
4 3/8" disposable aluminum pie pan (found over with all disposable baking pans)
1/2 cup cooked elbow macaroni
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
1 tablespoon parmesan
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 T butter
salt and pepper to taste

For each dish, let the kids combine all ingredients in their pan. Then seal it in foil (a double layer if cooking over an open flame) Fold over extra foil at the top to make a sturdy handle to put a stick through or tongs through. Hold packet over campfire or set it directly on a grill to melt the cheese (about 7-10 minutes) Let the pack cool briefly and open carefully. Stir up the mac and cheese and enjoy! I make mine ahead of time (like a traditional tinfoil dinner) and brought them up to be cooked at the campsite.
