  1. Anyone tried this? I would think freezing in the foil might be a probelm. The acidic tomatoes can eat holes in foil and also cause off flavors. I think freezing in a baggie and dumping into the foil at the last minute might work better?

    1. You can do either way but we have done 100’s upon hundreds of dishes in foil pans (using tomatoes) and never had that issue.

  2. I think you meant to sprinkle with cheese BEFORE closing the foil packet, right? Otherwise… messy! Not to mention a waste of good cheese (unless you planned to eat the foil, which I suppose is a good way of introducing more iron into your diet!). LOL!

    1. Hi Jody,
      Yes, if you are using the cheese, you would put it in before closing the foil packet. I was trying to let people know it was optional. Not everyone likes dairy free cheese so we are trying to use recipes that don’t necessarily need cheese but it might enhance the flavor. So, yes, if you want to add cheese–do it before closing the foil.
