My friend & I are going tenting for a couple days. We will have a fire ring only for cooking. Anyone have any suggestions on what I could cook and how to cook it other than hot dogs on a stick or s’mores? Haven’t been camping since I was a kid.

    how ’bout a hobo dinner? any kind of meat & or veggies wrapped up in foil & cooked on the grill, oven or fire. add any thing you like & enjoy. plain ‘ole bacon & eggs on an open fire is to die for! lots of snacks, just the open air alone will make you hungry.

    If you get enough hot charcoal going, you can make baked potatoes or corn in wrapped in foil. Can of baked beans… make few vents on top for steam to evaporate.

    When I go camping I like to make spaghetti & meatballs ahead of time, then reheat over the campfire – really good!

    Also have you ever made hobo pies? For that you need the hobo pie irons which you can buy at wal-mart. Just make a sandwich out of two slices of bread stuffed with anything – pb&j, spaghetti, apple pie filling, whatever. Then you put them into the campfire and cook – they’re wonderful!

    Breakfast in a Bag Recipe
    Required: Paper lunch bag
    Marshmallow roasting stick
    Campfire with hot coals and little flame.
    Ingredients: Per person:
    2 strips bacon
    handful of frozen hash browns
    1 or 2 eggs
    salt and pepper

    Instructions: Lay bacon in bottom of bag.
    Add potatos.
    Add eggs.
    Close bag by folding top 1/3 down, then fold that in half and in 1/2 again.
    Poke through the folded portion with the stick to hold it above the fire.
    Hold 5 inches above coals for 10 minutes – might be better to prop up by sticking the other end of the stick in the dirt rather than hoping every boy keeps his bag out of the coals.
    Open a bag to check. If its done, tear the top off the bag or fold it down and eat right out of the bag. But, since the bag is greasy, you’ll want to sit it on a plate or something other than the table or pants leg.

    Put a hunk of roast- with lots of fat on it- in some double wrapped foil and season it with salt and pepper, garlic…whatever you like. Throw it right in the fire. One of my favorites! Eat it with a large knife. Seriously.
    Let it cook for a good hour at least….you can move it over to the side to keep warm.

    Biscuit on a Stick

    Roll out a biscuit with your hands
    so that it becomes elongated and about one inch thick at the center. Wrap it tightly around the end of your stick and pinching it as you go to insure that it stays on the stick while cooking.
    When done wrapping,
    the biscuit should take up about six inches of the stick.
    Heat over the campfire until golden brown.
    Pull it off the stick, pour butter down the hole
    left by the stick, and enjoy.

    You can put a hot dog on a stick and cook it halfway,
    then put on the biscuit to bake around it until the biscuit is browned
    Dip in ketchup or bbq sauce.

    Pour butter around the outside of the biscuit
    and sprinkle sugar on it, then pour your favorite jelly inside.
    It is very messy, but very good
    Pass the napkins or paper towels
