Campfire Eats

May 11, 2016 – Let’s get back to the basics with a little grub by the fireside. Nothing beats looking up at the stars and trading the hustle of the city for the serenity of nature this Memorial Day weekend. Pack up the car, grab your bug spray and let us worry about your campfire eats so all you have to worry about is who gets the last marshmallow.

You can check off three of the main food groups with this recipe! Simple to make, even simpler to enjoy.

Summer Grilled Potatoes and Vegetables
Po-tay-to. Po-tah-to. Either way you say it, this side dish is on fire. Even our meat-eating friends will want to steal a bite, or two!

Make room on the picnic table and slide these tiny bad boys over. Healthy? Check! Easy? Check! Delicious? Double check.

Combining dessert and comfort food? That’s the best of both worlds.

Now that food is all squared away, don’t forget some of these food travel tips as you plan:

  • Pack meat and beverages separate from everything else.
  • Pack meals in zip locks to minimize food prep at the campsite.
  • Foods like frozen peas and corn double as ice packs.
  • Block ice will last longer than ice cubes.

    Take a sheet of heavy duty foil. Butter or oil it. Layer of ground beef (or turkey or sausage, etc), then any veggies, seasonings, and some sauce. Can be cream soup, tomato sauce, bbq sauce etc. Then another layer of meat. Seal foil tightly around into a packet. Add 1 or 2 more sheets of foil around & seal tightly. Place directly on hot coals. (Campfire with wood burned to chunks of very hot coals / embers, mostly). Flip after about 10 minutes. Leave on around another 10 minutes. You need to adjust time depending how hot the coals are, how big the packets are & what kind of meat. These always turn out delicious & everyone makes up their own with stuff they like. Make sure you have heavy duty fire or oven mitts to pick them up. Or use long tongs very carefully. They will leak and burn if you poke a hole!

    Cowboy stew. Brown ground beef and onion before camping out,place in cooler in ziplock. At campsite add to pot, bag of ground beef/onion, canned potatoes,3-4 cans of vegetable soup, top with corn chips and serve in bowls. Hearty and delicious.
