|Three Minute Pizza|
|1 pkg. pita bread |
1 can spaghetti sauce
1 cup grated mozerella cheese
1 pkg. sliced pepperoni
Any other toppings as desired
|aluminum foil |
|Cut pita in half and spoon spaghetti sauce into pocket spreading evenly. Add mozerella ans pepperoni and any other "toppings" you wish. |
Wrap in heavy duty foil and place in coals. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. (You just want it to get warm and to melt the cheese. For really hot coals this is plenty of time.)
|Serve with salad for a quick meal or it makes a great campfire snack!|
|1 to 1 1/2 pound Ground Beef |
1 Large Onion, peeled, cut into slivers
1 40 ounce can Franco-American spaghetti
Garlic powder, Salt Pepper
|Large skillet, Knife, spoon, can opener|
|Brown ground beef in skillet. Remove beef to bowl. Pour off excess grease, leaving about 2 tablespoons. Brown onions until soft. Add beef, garlic powder, and heat through. Add Spaghetti and spices to taste, simmer at least 5 minutes to let flavors combine.|
|This was originally a Girl Scout recipe from the 1950's. |
Add salad and fresh bread for a "Gourmet meal"
|Bananas, Mini-marshmallos, Chocolate chips, peanuts, "Reeses Pieces", Etc.|
|With a knife, cut a 3/4 inch "V" shaped channel into the top (inner part of curve) of the banana and remove flesh. |
Place mini-marshmallos, nuts, chocolate chips, or what have you in the banana. Replace slice of flesh, so that banana is stuffed. Wrap with tin foil and place in coals of campfire. Banana will lay on its "side", roast each side five minutes. Remove with tongs. Slice through tin foil on "top" of banana, and peel foil back. Enjoy.
|We have made these on camp stoves and in dutch ovens. They are always a treat, but definitely taste best when done in a campfire.|

Wrap 1 hamburger patty, 1 sliced potato, lots of baby carrots, part of a sliced onion and salt/pepper in heavy duty tinfoil. Place in the red hot coals of your campfire for about 30 minutes.
These can be made ahead of time and kept in your freezer or cooler until you are ready to cook them. sometimes we use no name steaks instead of hamburger patties. You can also add whatever veggies and spices you like.
- Powdered Eggs
- Ham pieces
- Onion diced
Place eggs and all the ingredients in a foil bowl and place on coals for a few minutes. It will not take long for eggs to steam with the rest of the ingredients.
Place the cooked mixture on a plate and serve with tortillas.
