This is as much fun to make as it is to eat. 6 bananas, unpeeled 3 chocolate bars, broken in pieces 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows peanut butter, (optional) heavy duty foil With a sharp knife, cut a slit down the length of the banana, being careful not to cut all of the way through. Open up the slit a little and stuff with chocolate pieces and marshmallows (and peanut butter if you'd like). Wrap the banana in foil and place it on your campfire coals. Watch closely and check often. Banana boats are done when chocolate and marshmallows are melted. Unwrap and dig in (literally!)
No camping trip is complete without these. 6 chocolate bars, divided in half 12 whole graham crackers, each split into 2 squares 24 large marshmallows Roast 1or 2 marshmallows over a campfire for each s'more. Place the roasted marshmallow(s) and half of a chocolate bar between 2 graham cracker squares. Give it a little squeeze and take a bite! Note: I happen to like chocolate. You can use a third or fourth of a chocolate bar for each s'more if you like. Variation: For you peanut butter lovers, try spreading a little on your graham cracker before adding the chocolate and marshmallow.
This is great to have your first night out. You can even assemble them before leaving home and stick them in your cooler. These are also fun to make with a group because everyone can make their own. 2 pounds ground beef, uncooked 1 onion, chopped or sliced 1 green pepper, chopped or sliced 3 carrots, sliced 3 stalks celery, sliced 3 potatoes, thinly sliced 1 cup mushrooms, sliced salt and pepper seasoning of choice 2 tablespoons water heavy duty foil Place 6 large rectangles of foil in front of you. In the middle of each, crumble one third of a pound of uncooked ground beef. Top each with desired amounts of the above vegetables and seasonings. Sprinkle each dinner with 1 teaspoon of water. Bring the edges of the foil together and fold. Roll (or fold ) each end, pinching to seal. (Or, you can bring all of the edges up and twist together, like a large Hershey's kiss.) Place dinners on hot coals (not flames) for about 20 minutes, checking occasionally for doneness. Add ketchup or your favorite BBQ sauce and eat right out of the foil. Tip: To keep track of whose is whose, put each person's initials on the foil using fingernail polish. It turns black, but won't burn off.
10 hot dogs, (1 package) 10 refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, (1 tube) cheese, (optional) Wrap a biscuit around each hot dog, pinching the edges together. (Both ends of the hotdog will stick out.) Roast on a roasting fork (or stick) over hot coals (NOT flames) for 10-15 minutes, or until biscuit is baked and golden. Be patient and don't get the hot dog too close to the hot coals or the biscuit will be done on the outside before it is on the inside. Optional: You can split the hot dog and put cheese in it before wrapping the biscuit around it. Just be careful your cheese doesn't all run out before your biscuit is done.
Use orange shells or onion shells as your "cooking pot: 1 pound ground beef seasoning of choice chopped onion chopped green pepper 4 eggs seasoning of choice 1 package refrigerated buttermilk biscuit, or any prepared biscuit, muffin or corn bread batter vegetables, cut in pieces 4 whole onions, for cooking in (exact number will vary) 4 whole oranges, for cooking in (exact number will vary) Prepare your "Cooking Pots:" Oranges - Cut the oranges in half, slicing through the navel and stem ends. Remove the orange sections (and eat or save for the meal). Onion - Cut the onions in half, slicing through the middle of the onion. Remove the inner section, leaving the outer 2-3 rings. (Chop the removed onion to add to the meat mixture) 1. Mini meat loaves - Mix ground beef, seasonings, chopped onion and green pepper. Divide into 4 equal portions. Put the meat mixture into the orange shell or onion section and place directly on coals. Cook about 15 minutes. 2. Eggs - Crack an egg into each of 4 the orange shells or onion sections and place on coals. Cook 10-12 minutes. 3. Biscuits - Place a refrigerated biscuit (or biscuit dough from scratch) into orange shells or onion sections. Place on coals and bake about 15 minutes. Note: You can prepare your favorite muffin mix or corn bread mix and cook in orange shells, too. 4. Vegetables - Place vegetable pieces in orange shells or onion sections. Add a small amount of water and place on coals. Cooking times will vary with type of vegetable.
Take you a onion and wrap it in heavy duty foil,Do not put any thing on it just wrap it then put it under your firewood before starting the fire...Let it cook for about 45 minutes to a hour depending how out your fire is and then dig it out.And it is ready to eat maybe with some type of favorite dip also if you want to you can take some reg potatoes and coat them with some crisco oil and and wrap them as well and place them under the wood so while you are warming your body you can cook part of your super,,let them cook for about a hour and half to two hours.Happy camping. ..Roger Domingue 115 C Country Ln,,,Lafayette,La.70508...If there is anybody out there that would like to exchange house recipes,like spam and potatoe bake or porcipine meatballs,greenbean cassorole .just write me or e mail me I love cooking down here in the south Louisiana.

Have each camper bring an empty carton of milk, 1-quart or 1/2 gallon. Place hot dog in bun. Wrap in tin foil. Put in milk carton, and place carton in fire circle or other safe burn spot. Light top of carton. By the time the carton is burnt to ground, THE HOT DOG IS COOKED!! I have not tried this, but the Ranger said it worked and the dawg was nicely cooked, and the bun was lightly toasted. Sounds like a perfect 'just before leaving' meal -- NO CLEAN-UP!!

These dinners are a lot like the Hobo Dinners, but with a twist. We have been making them at my summer camp on cook-out nights for a long time. Slice up: 2 green peppers 2 small onions 3 tomatoes 2 carrots (it works better if you peel them rather than slicing them) 6 potatoes 8 boneless chicken breasts (preferably the pre-cooked frozen kind) 16 slices of American cheese You'll also need: 1 bottle ranch dressing 1 can cream of mushroom soup salt and pepper garlic, if you like About a foot of aluminum foil per person What each person does: Put your chicken breast and vegetables in on the foil. Place them so that you will be able to make a "packet" with the foil around them. Place 2 slices of cheese on the top. Choose a liquid -- I recommend a good healthy squirt of ranch dressing, but some prefer cream of mushroom soup. If both of those turn you off, use a bit of water. Seal up your packet and throw it into the hot coals of a campfire for about 20 minutes. When your potatoes are cooked the whoel thing is done! Rip it open and eat it right out of the foil.

First you need a hobo pie maker, that's a round or square pie maker you get at most camp stores. take two pieces of bread and butter the out side, next place the bread butter towards the cooker and fill with any pie filling, apple, cherry or any other flavor. Close the pie maker and cook in fire. It only takes about 5 minutes a side sometimes less to cook the pies, next add sugar and your ready to eat a pie. I have been making thes pies since I was 6 years old. I am now 39 and I still enjoy making and eating them. I would recomend a cast iron pie maker for good heating.By the way if you get a round one just remove the extra bread.

Use a campcooker for cooking (with long handles & is usually round or square). We use these for a variety of dinners. Our favorite is pizza: -precooked ground beef -pizza sauce -onion -mushrooms -mozzarella cheese -loaf of bread and butter -pepperoni -and anything else you want to add! Butter one side of each piece of bread and place butter side facing campcooker. Fill with ingredients and close cooker. Place on hot coals for about 5-7 minutes, watching and turning carefully. Caution: let cool few min. before serving. We do the same for making fruit pies. Butter bread, fill with favorite jam or pie filling. After they're done, dip in sugar. Or fill with lunchmeats & cheese. Great tasting & filling!
1 loaf of Italian or (my favorite) French Bread sliced into 8 pieces. Spread bread on both sides with extra virgin olive oil and grill on one side until grill marks appear. Turn bread and sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesean cheese, bread should be a little soft, not too crunchy. Kathi Seabolt, Maryland Kathi20715@aol.com

This recipe is for each individual to make their own - you can brown it as much as you want this way! Take 2 handfuls of flour mix in a three-finger pinch of baking powder and a two finger pinch of salt. Add a couple of tablespoons of water and start to mix Add a little more water as necessary to make a not-too-sticky dough. When well mixed, stretch and roll out into a 'snake' shape and wrap around along half the length of a metre-long stick. Keep turning the stick as you cook it slowly over a fire that has died down a bit - it will take about 15 minutes to brown well on the outside and cook through on the inside. (The front end seems to cook faster, so you can start picking off pieces while you keep cooking the rest!)

1 piece of low quality (i.e. Wonder) bread 2 slices of bacon 1 egg cheddar cheese aluminum foil Take a piece of foil about 3 or 4 times the size of a slice of bread, and lay it flat. Take the piece of bread and fold it in half. Rip a hole about 1 1/2 inches diameter. Save the little piece. Lay the bread flat on the foil. Break the egg into the bread, so that the yolk goes into the hole. Place the bacon strips on the bread. Crumble the little piece of bread, and sprinkle it and the cheese on top. Fold up the foil so that no egg can escape. To cook, place in the hot coals (not flame) for approx. 15 minutes, or when it seems done. Enjoy.

I find this recipe for s'mores easier for little kids to handle, and less hassle to pack for camping. Instead of using graham crackers and chocolate bars, I put the toasted marshmallow between two fudge stripe cookies. It really is a lot easier, and just as good (I think) as the original.

Not really a "recipe", just a fun way to cook hot dogs. Take a hot dog and cut a "X" (starting at either the top or the bottom) so it look it looks like 4 thin hot dogs-don't cut all the way to the bottom though. Stick the end that is not cut on a stick and cook it over the fire. As it cooks, the 4 "legs" of the hot dog curl, so it looks like a spider (or octopus) This is the FIRST thing my kids want to do when we go camping-enjoy!! :)
