Campfire Cooking Made Easy.
What could be better than eating a home cooked meal while camping or attending a barn fire on the beach but who really wants to stop having fun and take time out to prepare and cook a meal? Well I can cut out the preparation time of some meals while still having fun by just preparing your meals at home before you leave for the summer fun. I am going to cover homemade meals that will satisfy any hunger and the best part is your children can help made these meals and add their own touch.
Many meals are prepared in heavy duty aluminum foil and the size of the sheets varies on how large of a meal you are making. You can go to the store and by premade made foils bags or just make your own saving money. If you are using normal thickness foil fold it over and double it.
A trick to help keep your meals from burning while cooking is rather than placing your meal directly on the foil, spray a small amount of non- stick spray in the center of the foil and place a piece of parchment paper in the center of the sprayed foil and build your meal on it. The down side is that if are looking to brown your meal this trick will prevent browning.
You can always substitute different meats, cheeses, topping or add/subtract any ingredients to fit you and your families taste.
Not sure what lb. means in that recipe, how many teaspoons are in a cup or the difference between a Slotted and Perforated Spoon this link will help set you straight Basic Weights & Measurements at a Glance.
If you are not familiar with the proper way to start a campfire visit one of my three blogs; Starting a Fire without Matches/Friction-Based Methods, Starting a Fire without Matches/Spark-Based Methods, Starting a Fire without Matches/Magnification and Electrical Methods. Enjoy.
A good idea is to make any of my recipes at home on your charcoal/wood burning grill or fire pit before your intended trip to see if you need to make any adjustments, because nothing is worse than putting your food in the fire and having it fall apart on you while cooking.
Warning: Any food coming out of the fire or off the grill will be hot when you go to remove your food from the fire be sure to use something other than your bare hands to retrieve your meals like pot holders, a tea towel or tongs.
