Camp Cooking - What is your favorite?

We're getting ready for another season of camping, and that means weekends full of hot dogs and hamburgers and anything else you can grill up while miles and miles off the beaten path...

We're getting tired of the same o'l same o'l and wondered what your favorite EASY camping recipes are...

Just remember, we have a grill (bbq) stove top, and convection oven, so we are pretty open to whatever is your favorite.

Also, what are some things you make before you leave and keep in the freezer to just heat up?

Endless possibilities:

Grilled peppers and onions on a brat
Fresh caught fish dredged in cornmeal, pan fried in butter
Kabobs - small bites on a skewer, grilled.
Packet cooked chicken breast with veggies - season it wrap in foil and cook on grill - no dishes.
Grilled pineapple makes a nice finish.

My wife prepars a few meals in tin foil. Take a meat, or chicken or fish and put it in tin foil along with sliced potatoes, carrots and what ever else you like. Seal the foil and stick it one the BBQ or in the oven. Foil holds in all the moisture - no pots and pans to wash.

We like grilled salmon burgers on a crescent roll topped with a piece of melted swiss cheese a slice of tomato and some horseradish sauce. YUM!

Reading some of the suggestions already has my mouth watering.

One of the best meals I can ever remember having was when we were stuck along the road when a mountain pass was closed for construction.
We had just bought fresh produce the day before. We breaded and fried, fresh zucchini, squash, eggplant, and not yet ripe tomatoes. We were in a van, with a one burner Coleman. Cooked it along the side of the road, while waiting for the traffic to resume. Man! That was good!

For the morning we like what we call "Beard Eggs"; the name came from the friend who first made them for us.

Break eggs into container and season with Cavendar's Greek Seasoning then apply a generous sprinkling of Parmeson Cheese. Scramble and enjoy.

Make up and freeze pizza dough, can be baked on the open fire or a grill. Quick and easy. We use an electric skillet alot, anything can be made in it. A quick breakfast in the electric skillet, a bag of hash browns, brown them , then add eggs , and cook until eggs are set. A dinner meal, sliced veggies, potatos, carrots, onions,etc, add some brats or smoked sausage, then add water to cover and cook until veggies are tender.

I've got a couple favorites:

Meatballs in mushroom sauce in the crock-pot. The cheater's way is to buy the frozen meatballs at Sam's Club. Throw those in with a chopped onion, 1 small can sliced mushrooms, 1/4c red wine & 1 can cream of mushroom soup. Set the crock pot in the sink & let it cook away while your drive. Stir in 1/2c sour cream just before serving over rice or noodles.

Pie iron pizzas. Spray pie irons insides with PAM. Take Pillsbury crescent roll dough (you want 2 triangles kept together to make a rectangle) & lay part in bottom of 1/2 iron. Fill with pizza sauce, mozzarella & choice of fixin's. Fold over with rest of dough & seal edge. Attach other 1/2 of iron & cook over campfire, approx 7 minutes rotating to not burn. You can also make these dessert by using canned pie filling for the inside instead of pizza fixin's. Serve with ice cream.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Can't go wrong with a Dutch oven. Can cook an entire meal in one. I make apple pies in mine too. I have a really big fry pan for frying those big ones that didn't get away.

We make at least one meal every trip in a dutch oven. Start cooking around noon and just keep adding coals to the top. We toss in meat and vegtables. Anything from chicken to ribs. Add one can of beer (I prefer dark beers) and one can of V8 for stock.

Pick your seasonings and in 5 to 6 hours you can pluck the bones out .

We prefer cooking over a fire. Steak, baked potato, corn on the cob. Easy good meal. For dessert, cut up oranges and bananas sprinkle a little sugar and let set a little bit. We also like the foil dinners.

We love to cook, and carol is always goping thru cookbooks and websites looking for cool things to make.
We cook camping the same kinda stuff as at home, but mostly outside for prep and cooking. We travel with 2 gas grills and a small portable "fire pit" that I added a grille too, it works great with charcoal, or use the grille over a fire in the fire-ring.
