Hobo Stew
1 lb Hamberger
1 chopped onion
4 sliced potatoes
2 sliced carrots
salt and pepper

Mix all together, spoon onto pieces of foil large enough to close tightly. Put in the coals on the side, but close to heat them good.
You will have to test the untill done. Sorry but I don't remember the time, I think it is 30 min.
Open and add cheese.

Banana and Peanut Butter Wraps

Kids go bananas for these simple snacks. The peanut butter and banana filling, sprinkled with raisins and drizzled with honey, is a wholesome way to satisfy their sweet and salty cravings.
  • 1 (6 inch) flour tortilla
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
Lay tortilla flat. Spread peanut butter and honey on tortilla. Place banana in the middle and sprinkle in the raisins. Wrap, and serve.
Have a wonderful day.

Barbecued Zucchini Creole

This is great on the grill or you can just prepare it as stated and place the foil pack on a cookie sheet and bake it till done.

Slice zucchini crosswise into 1/4" slices. Put individual portions onto double thickness of heavy duty foil. Add cubed fresh tomatoes, sliced celery, salt, pepper and a dash of sugar and a pat of margarine. Wrap foil securely around the food. Cook on coals 14 to 16 minutes turning once.

For camping we make "tin foil babies" You take a med. sized piece of heavy duty tin foil, put in hamburger, onion, carrot slices and potato slices and add butter, salt and pepper and wrap tightly in the fiol. (Each person makes their own individual tin foil baby). You place the foil packages on the coals in the camp fire and cook until they are done (hamburger is cooked and potatoes and carrots are tender).

We also make banana boats - again take a piece of tin foil. Take a banana and slice it in half the long way. Place it in the tin foil and add pieces of of a hershey chocolate bar (you can add marshmallows too) and then wrap them and place them in the campfire coals. the chocolate and marshmallow melt and makes a yummy dessert

One of the recipes the boys in scouts used to like to make because it was so easy and it passed the requirements for their meals (if we didn't have requirements and menu approval they would have ate junk all weekend; lol)

Can opener combo

1 -15 oz can French style green beans, drained
1 - 10 1/2 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 cands ( 5 1/2- 6 1/2 oz each) boned chicken
1/2 tsp sage
chow mein noodles

Heat the green beans, soup, chicken and sage, stirring occasionally. Serve on the noodles. Makes 4 servings

They would make Fruit kebabs for dessert

You can use bananas, chunks of pineapple, marshmallows, maraschino cherries,strawberries,peach sections, and plum sections
Alternate the fruits you choose onto skewers of your choice and heat over hot coals till the marshmallows are golden brown.

My sons boy scout troop does the omlete in a bag and they call it Dishwater omlete. It is a big hit. We also like to make cobblers, any flavor.
Have a great day everyone,
