Banana Boats

Ingredients

  • Banana
  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate Chips

Split a banana lengthwise leaving the peel on. Fill with three marshmallows and chocolate chips. Wrap in aluminum foil set on hot coals for two minutes.

Bread on a Stick

Ingredients

  • Frozen bread dough
  • Butter or margarine
  • Garlic (optional)

Thaw some frozen bread dough (you can also make your own dough). Cut off some strips and roll into elongated segments 10-12 inches long. Cut a green stick, fairly stout; wrap the bread in a corkscrew fashion around one end, pinching the dough against the stick tightly so it’ll stay in place. Cook over coals in your firepit. Cook slowly and evenly so the bread doesn’t burn and gets cooked thoroughly. You may brush with butter and garlic if desired.

Burger Boats

Ingredients

  • ground beef
  • barbecue sauce
  • onions, finely chopped
  • potatoes, finely chopped
  • carrots, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Lay out a square of foil. Take a handful of ground beef and shape into an oval. Make a well, or boat, in the middle. Spread about 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce in the hamburger well. Add in vegetables, salt and pepper. Wrap up and cook until the vegetables are desired tenderness.

Butter Onion Trout

Ingredients

  • fresh trout, any kind
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 small onion, sliced

Clean the fish. Leaving the fish whole, stuff the insides with butter, salt and pepper, and as many onions as will fit. Place stuffed trout on buttered foil and wrap up. Place over fire for 7-10 minutes. Open the foil pack, peel the skin off, and enjoy.
