Who doesn’t love the taste of outdoor food cooked over a campfire. However , packing everything and the kitchen sink isn’t realistic when hauling your back pack up mountains, around trails and for days!
Check out these easy recipes that you can make to satisfy your taste buds without a lot of gear or ingredients.
Campfire scrambled eggs
Sounds super simple right! When you master this recipe, you just may be cooking these out in your backyard too! Depending on your supplies, and how many people are eating - the general ratio is for each egg, add 1 tablespoon each of the butter and water.
Add the ingredients to a saucepan, and stir. Put the pot over the fire and keep stirring. Once the butter starts to melt, start a pattern of 30 second on the fire, and 10 seconds off, using a a slow heat method. Once the butter is all melted, mix again, and leave on the fire a bit longer, just until your eggs seem almost done. Remove from the fire, and stir once more. The heat from the pot will finish cooking the eggs.
Hotfired Chili Dog
8 Hotdogs, chopped into 1” pieces
1 small onion, chopped
1 can Chili
4 tbsp BBQ sauce
Hot dog buns
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (except for the buns). Gut out each bun and place each bun on its own piece of tin foil (enough to full wrap the bun). Fill each bun with the mixture, and wrap with the tin foil. Grill over a flame for about 20 minutes.
An absolute favorite and and easy treat to carb up on those chilly days.
3 cups flour
2 tbsp baking power
Dash of salt
3 tbsp fat - butter, lard or oil
Up to ⅔ cup Water
Add all the ingredients, except the water, in a bowl. Mix with your fingers till the mixture feels crumbly like breadcrumbs. Slowly add ⅓ cup water and keep mixing with your fingers. The dough should be soft and malleable. Keep adding water till you get the consistency. Keep mixing dough with your fingers until it seems sticky and bouncy.
To cook, add butter or oil to skillet over a fire. Grab some dough to make a ball, and then flatten roughly with your hands. Cook in skillet on each side until it’s crispy. Eat just like that or add butter, jam or another fave topping. Another way to cook is to work the dough ball onto a marshmallow stick and cook over an open fire.
