Campfire Recipe Favorites!
This individual meatloaf, in an onion, is a campfire favorite! Eat them on their own or pair them with foil baked potatoes & vegetables for a hearty camp dinner.
- 1 pound(s) lean ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c cracker crumbs
- 1/4 c tomato sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 4 large onions, peeled and halved
- 18-inch heavy-duty aluminum foil
*Cut off the root at the bottom end of the onions so that removal of the center is easy. The removed center of the onion can be diced and combined with ingredients or used later.
In a 1-gallon plastic self-sealing bag, combine ground beef, egg, cracker crumbs, tomato sauce, salt, pepper and dry mustard and mix by squeezing. Set aside.
Cut onions in half horizontally and remove center part of onion, leaving a 3/4-inch-thick shell. Divide meat mixture into 4 portions and roll into balls. Place in the center of the 4 onion halves. Put onions back together. Wrap each onion in foil. Cook over a bed of hot coals for 15 to 20 minutes per side. Serve as a lunch or dinner.
A twist on the traditional baked potato, with egg & cheese, this simple savory meal could really be eaten morning, noon or night.
- Baked potatoes, slightly cooled
- Salt and pepper (optional)
- Shredded cheese
- Bacon Bits
You'll need fully baked potatoes, you can bake them ahead of time, or right before you need them. Slice off a side of each potato lengthwise, and scoop out most of the insides except for a thin layer of potato. Fill each with cheese, bacon bits about 3/4 full, and then crack an egg right on top. Top with additional cheese and toppings if desired.
Wrap in foil & place potatoes on campfire rack for about 25 minutes. Egg whites should be set and yolks soft.
The simplest of desserts for campers with a sweet tooth!
- Instant Cake Mix
First mix up instant cake mix of your choosing in a pot or bowl.
Then cut the tops off of oranges and scoop the guts out with a spoon. Fill each orange up 2/3 full with the cake mix. Put the tops back on and wrap the oranges with aluminum foil.
Set the oranges in the campfire coals for about 20 minutes. Or until a toothpick comes out of batter clean.
