2 strips bacon
handful of frozen hash browns

Close bag by folding top 1/3 down, then fold that in half and in 1/2 again.

Hold 5 inches above coals for 10 minutes - might be better to prop up by sticking the other end of the stick in the dirt rather than hoping every boy keeps his bag out of the coals.
Open a bag to check. If its done, tear the top off the bag or fold it down and eat right out of the bag. But, since the bag is greasy, you'll want to sit it on a plate or something other than the table or pants leg.

Put a tortilla on the square of foil.
Add peanut butter or pie filling.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and/or marshmallows.
Roll up the tortilla and fold the bottom edge in.
Wrap foil around tortilla and place on grill above fire or on ash around edge of fire.
Wait for the ingredients to melt.


Hints:
  • Main problem is putting too much stuff in the burrito - try to talk people into taking smaller amounts.
  • Put all the tortillas in a foil wrap and carefully heat them before so they are more flexible.
  • Putting tortillas directly into the coals will burn them - keep them away and rotate often.
  • Each person should mark his burrito wrapper somehow so he knows it is his - special foil fold or permanent marker or series of poked holes in the foil.

1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp cooking oil
2 tsp cream of tartar

Dutch Oven Fondue or Fryer

Intended for:Boy Scouts
Ingredients:cooking oil
various meats and vegetables
batter
sauces
metal skewers or fondue forks
Instructions:A dutch oven works great as an oil fondue or deep fryer. Safety around the hot coals is the one thing that should be stressed and enforced.

All you need is two inches of oil poured in the dutch oven and heated to 375 degrees. Keep the lid off the dutch oven and set it on plenty of coals.

Scouts can fondue beef, shrimp, chicken, any meat that will stay on a skewer. We've done hamburger balls, too, but a few will be lost. Fish works fine if you dip it in batter first, otherwise it will flake off.

You can also dip vegetables in a batter and fondue them. Green beans are great.
Cut potatoes and make french fries or potato chips.

Can make doughnuts for dessert.

We've tried both cheese and chocolate fondue in a dutch oven, but found it too difficult to regulate the heat to keep it hot, but not burned.

Hudson Bay Bread

Intended for:All Scouts
Ingredients:3/4 lb. softened butter
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup light Karo syrup
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp maple flavoring
3/4 cup ground nuts (walnuts)
9 cups Quaker 1-minute oats
Notes:This is the recipe from Northern Tier but you can modify the ingredients to include raisins, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, or what sounds good.
Instructions:You may want to grind up the oats in a blender or food processor.

Cream together all the ingredients except the nuts and oats, in a large mixing bowl.
Once it is all blended, stir in the oats and nuts. Make sure it is well mixed.

Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet with at least a 1/2 inch high lip. Press the mixture down and pack it in until it fills the pan and is a smidge less than 1/2 inch thick. You'll probably need a second sheet.

Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove and press down with a spatula to prevent crumbling when it cools. (If you bake it too long, it gets hard and crunchy like a granola bar.)
While it is still warm, cut into 3 inch squares.

This is often eaten for lunch while canoeing. Globs of peanut butter and/or jelly are loaded on top and then eaten. It is a high-energy food that is great when you are burning lots of calories outside.
