Going on a camping trip. Will be staying in a cabin but there is no stove so we will be using the open fire to cook. Any good recipes? We do have a small propane stove if we really need it.

    for breakfast fry up some new potatoes with sausage and scrambled eggs for a scrambled mess. you can use some of the new potatos for dinner the previous night.

    And you can also cut up potatoes in 1" cubes, add about 2 tablespoons butter, 3 strips cooked bacon, crumbled, 2 green onions, chopped, and salt and pepper to tasted. You put everything but the cheese into the foil and cook until potatoes are tender. Add cheese last few minutes of cooking.

    I always think chili goes well at camp sites too, no matter how hot it gets.. its a good flavorful, spicy meal to finish off the day.

    For dessert ;
    campfire upside down cake

    INGREDIENTS:
    12 cake donuts
    1 1/4 cups brown sugar
    1 1/4 sticks butter, softened
    12 pineapple rings

    PREPARATION:
    Slather butter on donuts. Pack on brown sugar. Top with pineapple. Seal tightly in foil packet, and cook on coals for 5 minutes.

    Well with an open fire and a propane stove you can make anything you want! But one of my favorites is called a Hobo meal. It is Ground beef rolled into about one inch balls, Potato cut up about the same size, and Carrots, and Onions cut up the same way. Seasoned with Salt and Pepper and wrapped up in tin foil. Closed tightly. Placed on the open fire and let cook until the meat and the veggies are cooked fully. Length depends on how hot and big the fire is! It is so good….

    My favorite is what I call a Fat Elvis, but the rest of my family calls them campfire banana splits. Take a banana, and leave it in the peel. Slit it from one end to the other, and kinda open it up, so you can stuff it. Push it open a little and stuff in chocolate and marshmallows. Wrap it in tin foil and cook on the coals till it melts and the banana is soft. Usually about 10 minutes on hot coals that are not red hot. It’s great to spray the foil with pam, but not necessary. Its not too messy and sweet and yummy. You can add in nuts, raisins, etc. This year im gonna try marshmallows, butter, brown sugar and pecans.

    Wrap an onion that you have slit up here and there and cut a notch in top. Stuff the notch with a few Tablespoons of butter and salt and cook on the coals, 20 minutes, or to your liking.

    We wrap moistened corn in foil, and cook it on the coals till we can stab it with a fork and its not to firm. We also do baked potatoes in the same way. You can wash the potatoes at home, but take the corn as is and cook it in the husk.

    I like to use oranges for cooking when I’m camping. Cut the top off of a orange and dig out the inside of it leaving just the rind. Use any cake or biscuit mix of your choice and fill the rind up about 1/2 way, wrap with heavy duty tin foil and place next to or on top of some coals for about 45 mins. Check with out burning yourself by opening the top and see if the cake or biscuit mix is done. ( Not doughy ) The orange rind helps give it a good flavor and doesn’t taste like dirt like some people like to cook! Enjoy!!!

    Honestly you can just about make anything you make at home on a camp fire. How do I know my parents and I use to go camping in the BWCA all the time and they still go to this day, they have done cakes, cookies, pies, full roasts, ribs"not sure how exactly on that one" lasanga, pastas, pancakes, omlets, you name it I think they have tried it.But anyway thats not what you where asking but I thought I would share, here are a few in the link below to try. Also before camping try a few meals on the camp stove to see how long it might take, and if the recipe your using is going to work. Also remember pack only enough food for your trip with a little bit extra just in case, the more you take in and theres leftovers the same amount you need to haul out and not leave behind.A clean camp is a safe camp. Something my dad who use to be a wilderness guide told me.

    Have fun on your trip

    PS if your camping in a tent, trailer or even cabin keep this in mind any food residue attracts animals no matter how small. Even if your in a cabin and if hungry enough they will break the door down to get at the food they smell.But its rare sorry if I scared you.

    Baked Beans on Toast.
    Pour the contents of a can into an m/w bowl and nuke on high power to 90 seconds and stir.
    Continue for a further 90 seconds and let rest for a few minutes.
    Diced Onion or/and Ham, some Chilli powder or Cayenne pepper could be added.
    Serve on hot buttered toast.
    Put a fried/poached egg on top.
    A can of spaghetti would be a good substitute instead of beans.
