Re: Best campfire meals?

Fast and easy,no cleanup is foil pack dinner.
Venison/pork patties,thin sliced potato,carrots and onion,salt pepper or Janes crazy salt,a slice or 2 of butter. Take a double layer of heavy foil,put it all in the center by layering the onions and butter on top. another double layer of foil,fold each side onceover and continue around until its sealed well. put on coals or grill 10-15 minutes on each side.If you sealed it right it will puff up creating a mini pressure cooker. MMMMM
Have also made peach or apple cobbler with butter, cinnamon and bisqick mix the same way. Realy good

Re: Best campfire meals?

What is your recipe for the philly cheese steak mountain pie? I presume I could figure it out but thought maybe you had it perfected?

Most recently my campfire cooking has been for larger groups (25 ish)and involved my turkey cooker. For dinner I do a "low country boil" and for breakfast we do "bag omelets".

Re: Best campfire meals?

I've heard of making bag omlets, never had one though. How is it done?

Re: Best campfire meals?

You can make a dandy good steak in one of the doublewide mountain pie irons. You have to trim the beef to fit, I butter one side, olive oil the other. Don't season beforehand, the seasoning will burn in the intense heat. I like med. rare, that's 2 minutes per side.

pat we have done them at camp when all the kids are there. get a ziplock bag and put your eggs in it and all the ingredients you can writ the persons name on the bag with a sharpie so u get the right one. boil some water put the bags in and in about 5 or so minutes an easy no mess breakfast.

A few things to add to "tree's" instruction, 1) use "freezer" bags, 2) Remove as much air as possible from the bag. 3) we boil 13 min., 4) cut the top off the bag and dump the contents onto a plate.
