Post Reply Camp Cook Recipies
Posted 8/16/08
Hello all I start this for 2 reasons. 1) Im going camping in a couple weeks and I'd like to eat fairly heathy, but that has to be cooked in tinfoil in a fire/on the coals. So i was someone might have some recipies that i can prepare ahead of time and just through in the fire when i get there. 2) Campfire cooking is cooking in its basic form, so if anybody learns how to cook a few things from this they may be able to cook someting for themselves when someone else isnt cooking for them anymore.



Here ill start with this:

Pocket One-ders
Here's a wonderful method for campfire cooking which is simple, versatile and doesn't even require cookware or a grill. All you need is some heavy-duty tin foil.

Tear off a 12" sheet of foil and fold it back over your fist, making a "pocket". Roll the sides in a few turns so the pocket is only open at the top, and roll a turn or two up from the bottom for extra strength. The pocket needs to be leak-proof, and formed well enough to withstand cooking directly in the coals. If your foil is thin, you may need two layers.

Start by lining the bottom of the pocket with thin slices of lemon. This helps keep the food contents from burning, and imparts flavor to the meal. Chop potatoes and carrots (cut small enough to cook all the way without overcooking everything else), tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, onions, green beans, etc. and stuff the pockets. Add garlic, salt and pepper, olive oil, and a dash of cayenne. Add 1/4 cup of beer or water, fold the top edges of the pocket closed and set directly into the hot coals....it takes anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes, depending on how everything's cut. All the veggies slow roast in their own juices!

Campfire French Fries
4 medium potatoes, cut into strips
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon margarine
2 tablespoons bacon bits
salt and pepper to taste
Place each sliced potato on a large square of heavy duty foil, dull side out. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cheese. Toss to coat. Dot with margarine and sprinkle with bacon bits. Seal the foil, leaving a steam vent on top. Grill over hot coals for 30 to 45 minutes, turning two or three times, until potatoes are tender.

Campfire Muffins
6 oranges
2 (7 oz.) packages muffin mix, any flavor
Cut oranges in half. Scoop out orange segments to eat alone or to use with fruit salad. Reserve the hollowed peel shells. Prepare the muffin mix according to package directions. Fill the orange peel cups half full of batter. Wrap each one loosely with heavy duty aluminum foil. Place in hot coals, making sure that the batter side stays up. Cook 5-10 minutes until muffins are done.

Great Idea for a thread HS!
How about, ya make the pocket of tinfoil, add the lemon slices, then throw in the trout you caught!! I bet 15 -20 min in the fire would be plenty for a -1# fish, lemons should keep moist and add flavor etc!!
