Simple Campfire Recipes
POTATO DINNER-- Take a raw potato. Hollow out the center leaving
about 1/2 inch all the way around with skin attached. Fill the center with spiced hamburger with a bit of tomato sauce or use sausage pieces. Wrap tightly in foil and place on coals. Serve with cheese or garlic bread and a salad or some steamed or canned veggies. To steam veggies, slice thinly and make a foil pack and add a little water; seal and place on or over hot coals. Check after a 1/2 hour. Potato will take about an hour.
ONION SKIN HAMBURGER-- Cut a large onion in half cross-wise and remove most of the center, leaving about 3 or 4 layers. Mix up a hamburger mixture of your favorite seasonings and press into the hollowed out onion skin. Place directly on the coals for about 20 to 25 minutes.
BREAD CUPS--- Use a stick that is about 3 inches across, wrap in foil,
grease foil and form biscuit mix or bread dough around the end of the
stick and cook over the fire. Remove from stick carefully when done and serve anything you like in the cup; chili, creamed chicken, creamed tuna stew, etc.
CREAMED CHICKEN-- use cream of chicken soup with 1/2 can of milk/water and using precooked chicken chunks.
CREAMED TUNA-- using cream of mushroom soup mixed with 1/2 can
milk/water and a can of drained tuna. Add canned veggies (drained) to the mixture. You may have to add more milk/water to make it of stew consistency.
CANNED stew or chili is also good served in the cups.
