Campfire recipies 

  1. So we all have faced that moment when we go on camping and don’t know what to cook so here i am with these two easy to cook recipies for camping 

Scrambled eggs 

I know what you’re thinking, ‘everyone makes scrambled eggs; this isn’t special.’ But hear me out. Most scrambled eggs that people make are lifeless, bland mounds of disappointment and regret. Especially the eggs that are made when camping. But when you master this recipe sublime, cloud-like eggs will be your reward.Usually we would be using simple non-salted stick butter, but not everyone will have a cooler or a refrigerator that can fit ‘extras’ like butter. Clarified butter will do what we need, but if you can bring stick butter, use that instead.As you can see, I only listed 3 ingredients without any amounts. That’s because it depends on how much you are making. The ratio is this : for each egg add 1 tablespoon ofwater and 1 tablespoon of butter (clarified or not).Add your ingredients to a sauce pan. Yes, a sauce pan. A pot. Not a frying pan like you’re probably used to. I like to leave the egg yolks unbroken at first. If one breaks while cracking, that’s fine. Start off away from the fire and just stir, getting the egg whites and water to mix. Then put the pot over the fire. Once the eggs start to get warm you can break the yolks and get the eggs all mixed together. At this point the butter should start to melt, too. Once the butter is melting take the pan off the heat and keep stirring. You want to keep taking the eggs off the heat and then back on. We’re looking fora slow warm that barely cooks the eggs and allows the butter to melt, but nothing more. It’s usually going to be a routine of 30 seconds over the fire, 15 seconds off. Once the butter is completely melted and mixed together you can leave the eggs on the fire a little bit longer. Keep stirring until your eggs just come together. Your eggs will not seem done, and they aren’t. But take it off the heatanyway. The residual heat in the pan will takeyour eggs to perfection. Oh, by the way, you can cook yours eggs at home like this, too.

Grilled sweetpotato fries

2 Medium Sweet Potatoes2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil1 Clove of Garlic, Chopped1 Teaspoon Chili Powder1 Packet of Ranch Dry MixWash the Sweet Potatoes and dry them. Then cut them in lengthwise strips, about 1/3 an inch wide on each side, so they look like fries.The important thing is that they are uniform so they can cook up at the same time. If you wanted to produce a crispier Fry, and you have the time, soak the fries in water for 30 minutes and then let drain for an hour before continuing. If not, that’s fine, they’ll still bedelicious.Take all the ingredients and mix them in a bowl. We want an even coverage of all the tasty spices and the dry mix. Lay these fries out on a piece of tin foil that’s over a sheet pan. Place the pan on a grate over an open fire or on the middle rack of a grill. We’re looking to cook the potatoes and make the outsides nice and crispy. Depending on your heat you want about ten minutes a side, flipping once.
