Spray Inside of Tin Foil When Baking

Before you cover your baking items with foil, spray the side of the foil that touches the food with non-stick cooking spray. No more sticking to the foil and no more ruining your pretty dish

Better still buy the non stick foil. I love it. It is a little more expensive but consider the spray etc.

Such a simple idea yet so many of us hadn't thought of it! Thanks! Oh and about buying the non-stick foil. Good idea, but that stuff isn't as cheap as regular foil. Whereas you can buy cooking oil sprays in several flavors at the dollar store.

I use the non-stick foil and love it. Much prefer it to using a spray. For those who don't mind the sprays, your idea is a good one.

That is such a great idea! I would never have thought of that. I will pass that idea around. Thank you.

Especially in fall and winter, I like to cook casseroles. And when I do, I like to put toppings on them. Many times it's cheese, but sometimes it's tomato sauce or gravy or some other sauce, and most times it calls for covering the casserole with foil during baking. I found that more times than not the cheese or other topping sticks to the aluminum foil even after spraying it with cooking oil, especially if it has to bake a good while.


I came up with a simple solution. All of my baking dishes have little handles built in to the top ends. I'm sure everyone knows what I mean. Anyway, I take a bit of aluminum foil and form it into a good sized loose ball. Then I put this ball on each of the handles. If I have to I use a small bit of the ball to make a hook to keep it on the handle. Then I cover the dish as usual. The ball keeps the foil just high enough off of the cheese to keep it from sticking.

The main things I cook this way are semi-homemade mac and cheese (I use the box and add handfuls of shredded cheese...yum!), shepherd's pie, or any other casserole that I've put cheese or any other topping on. Works great!

That is a good idea but now they make aluminum foil with barrier on it to keep things from sticking. I just saw it advertised on tv last night.

Since I first discovered it a couple of years ago, I only use Reynolds Release aluminum foil. Works great! Give it a try.
