Camping Recipes

It’s that’s time of year, time to get out the camping gear and become one with nature.  Here are a few of our families favorite camping recipes.  They are easy to prepare and a breeze to clean up after.  Just my style.

First is a neat treat for campers everywhere! This is a Girl Scout trick called omelets in a bag.

Omelets-in-Bag
1-2 eggs per person
A splash of milk for each
Any add ins you might like: cheese, ham, onions, peppers.
A quart sized freezer zip-lock bag per person
Pita Bread (optional)

Bring a pan of water to boil. Each person puts 1-2 eggs in a bag and adds a little milk. Add any other items they wish. BE SURE IT IS CLOSED TIGHTLY!!!!!!! Press out most of the air, and seal. Shake or squeeze to beat the eggs.

Place bags in a pan of rolling boiling water and cook until done,about 14 minutes.  Instant omelettes you can eat right from the bag, or put in a pita bread for a breakfast sandwich. The best part… no pan to clean!
