Campfire Recipes and/or Camping Ideas!

GRILLED CHEESE---- Sandwiches can be made without a pan--use a buddy burner if you have one or wrap the prepared sandwich in foil and place just above the coals (cooks real fast). To make it a more complete meal add tomatoes, onions and cold cuts or any combination of your choice before

KEBOBS--- Of all sorts are easy to make and require no pans. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water to slow down the burning and make sure you can cook without holding by hand over the fire; if using metal ones make sure each person has a good glove to hold it with or there is a proper handle on it.

Make kebobs with wieners, smokies, sausage or meatballs. Pre cook
chicken, turkey, ham or any other meat cubes. Use a variety of veggies such as peppers, canned taters, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. As it is cooking, brush with bar-b-que sauce or teriyaki sauce if so desired.

RICE--- cooked in a sleeping bag. Take instant rice in 2 heavy duty zip lock bags. Add slightly less than normal amount of boiling water, (it must be at a full boil), add some raisins, nuts or some cinnamon and sugar, or whatever other flavoring you desire. Zip it up tight and place in a sleeping bag. The rice will cook in about 20 minutes. Once the rice is done, you can add cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and nuts to make it a dessert or snack; or you can use it as a side dish by adding butter, soy sauce or canned gravy.

BREAD--- Add grated cheddar or Parmesan cheese to butter, spread on bread slices (french or Italian loaves sliced thick work best) wrap in foil and put on coals or on a grate above the coals.

HOT DOGS--- are always popular but if you are tired of the usual roasts, try wrapping them in biscuit wraps and cooking them on a stick or wrap very loosely in foil and place on grate above fire for 15 to 30 minutes (time will depend on the heat of the fire and the weather. To make these more fun add cheese, onions, mustard, ketchup, pickles, bacon bits, etc. before wrapping. If using a stick, only add a little bit or the wrap will rip.

SOUPS---- To tomato soup add croutons, bacon bits, cheese cubes, sliced sausage; to vegetable soups ad precooked ground beef, wienies, cheese cubes; to noodle soups add croutons, Parmesan cheese, cubes of precooked beef or chicken. Serve with crackers or cheese bread.

When I was a Girl Scout we used to wrap Smoky Links in biscuit dough and have them for breakfast. As I remember the dough was usually slightly burned on the outside and still sort of raw on the inside, but those makeshift sandwiches still tasted good.

wrap just about anything in tinfoil, toss it in the coals, and that there is a prime meal!

Here's my favorite way of doing grilled cheese, to - slice up some pepperchini's or some other sweet pepper and put them on your sandwhich before grilling - oh about good!!
