Favorite one-pot camp recipes?

Postby EffieRover » Fri Oct 10, 2008 9:44 am

It's that time of year when I clean out my camp recipe book and look for new stuff to put in it for next year. I tend to gravitate toward the one-pot dishes and have noticed some here. Any other favorites?

My kids favorite:

1 kielbasa or smoked sausage
1 2lb bag of frozen tortellini
bags of frozen mixed veggies including squash, zucchini, carrots and red peppers, totaling 2lbs of veg
healthy pinch each parsley, oregano and basil
olive oil

Heat your skillet to just below screamin-hot and add olive oil. Brown sausage (about 3 min), then add veggies. Brown veggies, turning often, then turn heat down a tad (about 5 min). Add frozen tortellini and cook, turning often, until heated through and well-coated with oil (about 3 min). Sprinkle with herbs and serve hot.

Easy, cheap, and meatless. I cook basmati rice in a pot, throw frozen or fresh chopped veggies and a can of garbanzo beans on top of rice when half cooked to steam. When rice is finished, I serve to the kids with a shake of salt. My husband and I like to add a scoop of salsa or indian type sauce (from a jar) and stir it up.

Italian one-pot:

Boil two quarts of water. Dump in 2 packets of orzo or aceite (pepperseed) pasta (Moderno makes good noodles at a good price) for a total of 12 oz of pasta. Stir well, sprinkle with salt. When it returns to the boil, reduce heat to a simmer, pour in one undiluted can of chicken broth and add a package of frozen spinach. Stir in 1/2 to 3/4 cup cold cooked chicken and 1/2 to 3/4 cup meatballs. Cover and cook for 30 - 45 minutes (thaw and heat through all ingredients). It's like a cross between Italian wedding soup and a casserole.

BBQ hotdish

Postby KingMick217 » Tue Jun 09, 2009 9:55 am

Boil up some wide egg noodles, & strain.
Fry up some sausage and or chicken pieces (about 3/8" cubed).
Combine pasta, meat, and a bottle of BBQ sauce.
If it is too sweet add yellow mustard to taste.

Easy, quick, cheap, and tasty. :twisted:

Camp hash

Brown a pound of ground beef in a big pot with a lid, drain.
Add 2 cans of Condensed Alphabet soup
Add a cup of minuite rice, a half cup of water, stir, cover and let simmer till rice is done.

You can also substitute elbow noodles for rice...but that would take 2 pots.

Happy Trails

Jambalya

Postby KingMick217 » Tue Jun 09, 2009 10:13 am

Butter... Lots of it.
Canned tomatoes
jalepenos
green pepper
onions
celery
beer

One or all of the following:
ground pork, beef, sausage, chicken, shrimp, crawdaddy tails

Melt the butter, and add your meat of choice. Give it a quick spin around the cast iron to get it started cooking. Add all the rest of the ingredients to suit your liking. Keep adding beer until the pot starts looking REALLY soupy. At this time add your favorite spices. I prefer Cumin, Garlic powder, Chili powder, and Sage. Cover and let it cook for 25 to 30 minutes, give it a stir about every four minutes or so. When the flavors have blended nicely, add enough Minute rice to thicken the dish. Remove it from the heat, cover and let stand. You should be able to eat it with a fork if you choose to.

I usually cook this over a campfire in my cast iron dutch oven... left-overs make for awesome omelets the next morning.

I know there aren't any quantities listed... but there really isn't a wrong way to make Jambalaya.

P.S. Never trust a skinny cook.

I like the sound of this, but not sure I can cook it at Girl Scout camp :)

Ya know another meal I like to bring along is "Boil in Bag Left overs"

I always at home purposely cook to have left overs, for lunches, second meals and so on.

Well a great "No muss no fuss and no dirty dishes" way of doing this while Camping is to just put the stuff in Ziplock bags, boil a pot of water, drop them in for a few minutes and ya got a real easy meal with little or no clean up.

Happy Trails

That's meant to mean that he still has all ten fingers unmolested.

And ... never trust a clean mechanic.

This just in ... did a meal yesterday with boil-in-bag rice and a frozen stir-fry veggie blend. Boiled the veggie blend in bag, too. Doused in hoisin sauce and devoured. Yum!
