Camp Cook Virgin

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I am taking my husband camping for a few days in June. We have only been a few time before and relied on the local pub for nourishment. This time I'd like to cook breakfast and at least one dinner.

I have bought an LPG gas stove (2 rings and a toaster/grill underneath) pots/pans etc. Breakfast will be easy, but dinner? I'm not so sure.

Do you have any sure fire recipes I can try?

Thanks very much

Simplest choices are single pan/pot meals. Pasta dishes, quick stews and such are usually a good choice and fairly simple.

 

Skillet Lasagna is one I like, though you'll need to adapt it down to the right amount of servings.  http://joelens.blogspot.com/2010/06/skillet-lasagna.html will get you on track. I tend to use the no boil lasagna noodles for this.

 

For two people, a camp stove has enough heat to pull off a pretty good stir fry. For camping, I'm partial to stir fried noodle dishes and I'd probably pre cook the noodles where you're only cooking dinner for one night. Just keep them on ice.

I thought about a curry, but didn't want to upset the neighbours smile.gif

A dutch oven works wonders to make an awesome pot roast.

Use a cast iron skillet for breakfast; bacon, eggs, hash-browns, toast.   1 pan ... everything is done and served in 15-minutes.

I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

Yup. That's what I do when I'm camping just one night and don't want to lug around a bunch of cast iron. Just pack a cooler full of beers and hobo dinners. Best ever!

Chef McCracken is quoting the Urban Dictionary?? It's just so....new-school.

I guess there are a few surprises left in here after all. biggrin.gif

 

With Hobo-fare, your boonies-meal is limited only by your imagination.

I've even set up a snare or two back in the day. smile.gif

But it doesnt hurt to have an iron pan or two lying about--the fresh air

does wonders for the culinary imagination....and appetite.

I think the politically correct term is "tin-foil dinner".

What, Hobo is politcally incorrect now?

I suppose Rail-runner, nomad, boxhopper and vagabond are as well....

Okay then, lets call em "Migratory Worker Makeshift Meals".

Hey that sounds really appetizing! tongue.gif

 

By the way, you can make some really great desserts out camping with the

MWMM method too, even MWMM fruit cobbler, or Pie-in-a-pouch! licklips.gif

Do you have a pudgy pie maker?  You can make breakfast sandwiches in this.
