HOBO DINNER

Camping Recipe 5

If you gotta measure or you’re squeamish, you’re not a camper! This is my late mother’s recipe. It is easy enough for campers and kids to fix. If you’re home with the kids, cook the dinners in the oven.

Hobo Dinner

Give each child a large piece of aluminum foil—spread olive oil inside the foil to keep food from sticking. Hamburger patty, though stewing beef, steak, and sausage also work. Each child picks out their own veggies: potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, carrots. Salt, pepper. Wrap it and put in the fire or oven. Done when the meat is cooked.

Camping Recipe 3

If you gotta measure or you’re squeamish, you’re not a camper! This is an old recipe, but it is perfect for bored kids stuck at home.

Bannock

Used by Indians in Canada & American Backpackers. In this age of bread shortages, this recipe can be used at home—mix in a bowl and cook over a stove. The kids might even enjoy helping.

In 2-quart freezer bag

2 cups all-purpose flour

½-teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1-tablespoon sugar

¼ cup powdered milk

Cook that stuff!

  1. Put 1 cup cold water in bag and let sit a couple minutes.
  2. Mix thoroughly (shake, rattle, and roll).
  3. Put into greased (buttered) skillet. Liquid margarine works great.
  4. Cook until brown. You can turn it or hold the top next to a campfire to brown both sides. I just brown one side.
  5. Pig out – can be used for dessert with butter or strawberries. Without the margarine, it’s almost fat free.

Kickapoo Eggs

Camping Recipe 2

If you gotta measure or you’re squeamish, you’re not a camper! Perfect for bored kids stuck at home.

Kickapoo Eggs

Ooani in Kickapoo. Years ago, I read a book about Kickapoo life in the 1950’s. For any time of the day, they enjoyed cooking eggs. I fixed these with my sons while camping. Can be done at home. Use a large greased skillet: Add eggs. Now add whatever veggies etc. you have. Kids might enjoy adding their favorite leftovers to the eggs: (everything in small pieces) tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, bacon, celery, peppers, and so on. No milk, or you’ve got an omelet. (cheese is messy for campers)
