Camping food

It is camping season here in the States. What kind of foods do you cook while camping?

We have a large pull camper with all the things of home. But I still do alot of cooking over the fire.

I would love to share recipes with other campers.

Here is 1 that we use alot and the kids do most of the work themselves.



Campfire Tacos Recipe

Ingredients:
1 pound ground beef (browned, drained, and seasoned with taco package)
Shredded cheese
Salsa
Tortilla shells


How to Prepare:
Spray the pie iron with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Line one side of the pie iron with tortilla shell. Top with meat, cheese, and salsa. Optionally add any of your other favorite taco fillings. Top with another shell. Shut and secure the pie iron and tear off any tortilla shell sticking out of the pie iron. Cook slowly over hot coals turning occasionally and cook until hot. Enjoy!

I'm going to show this recipe to my Big DS. He often camps with his Boy Scout troop, and these boys and leaders like to cook GOOD meals. No burgers and dogs for them when they camp!

Omlet..scrambed egg in a bag

various fillings: chopped tomato, onion, mushrooms, ham, sausages, bacon bits, peppers, grated cheese, tinned tuna etc
2 eggs per child
a drop of milk
Freezer bag per person


Start by chopping up some bits and pieces for the filling and placing them in bowls/containers.

Take a seal-able freezer bag (medium sized ziplock ones are really good!).

break two eggs each into their bag. Don't whisk it or anything, shut the bag and gently shake them or squeeze them. Then add a tiny bit of milk (optional)

Once the yolks have broken up and mixed a bit, add whatever you like from the bowls.

Then squeeze the bags to remove air, seal them by tying in a knot or using the ziplock. (You can label the bags so they don't get mixed up.)

Then put the bags in a large pan of boiling water and cook for about 10-15 mins (you will know its ready when all the liquid has disappeared).

Open the bag carefully (mind the steam) and serve.

My bro & sis in law have these things that they make, called mountain pies - They have these things on the end of tongs that they cook stuff inside of bread & grill them over the fire - They make all kinds of things - We shared them with them over a bonfire last weekend - They bought these things at WalMart for about $10 - You can put anything inside of bread & cook them & they come out like hot pockets - They made: peanut butter, chocolate & marshallows in one - I didn't try that but it was a favorite with a lot of kids & adults alike - they tried pb & j, hotdogs & 1 of the absolute favorite was the cheese, sauce & pepperoni - It was alot of fun & yummy.....

Stekim we have these they are called Pie Irons. We put pie filling between the 2 pieces of bread. Once they are done you pop them on to a paperplate and put a little bit of powder sugar on them. They remind me of the pies from McDonalds. The kids like the strawberry and apple pie filling the best.


Here is an idea I do with the Reynolds Wrap Foil Bags. You must spray the inside of the bag. I get nice coals and put the rack over the fire ring. Then I take the reynolds wrap foil bag and add beef or chicken pieces(boneless works best), potatoes, carrots(any veggies). Add beef broth or tomato juice and cook them all in the bag until done.

We use to make these all the time when the girls and I were in Girl Scouts. Easy clean up was the best thing about this breakfast.

When my children were young...we went camping a lot and even when we got older and camped (we don't anymore, this husband doesn't like to camp) but one of my favorites and my children's was...mix instant rice and a can of cream of mushroom soup, place chicken breast in foil, top with the mixture, sprinkle with paprika and close foil...cook either in the coals but not directly or over them on a grate....for about 30 min...till done...YUMMY! I don't measure so hard to tell you how much rice to add to soup...you don't want the rice to over power the soup but ample enough per serving!
