We went camping last weekend and had a blast. One of my favorite parts of camping is the food of course! Foil dinners are a must and we also busted out a mean dutch oven cobbler. So easy, so delish.
1 pound hamburger
1 onion, halved
2 carrots, peeled and sliced into coins
1 or 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup panko (or breadcrumbs)
All purpose seasoning (Lawry’s, etc)
Lots of foil!
Directions: Take one onion half and cut into slices. Take your other half and half it again, slice one half and finely dice the other. (you should have 3/4 onion sliced) In a medium bowl combine hamburger, onion, garlic, egg, panko, Worcestershire sauce and season to taste. Form into patties, you can have two monster patties or a respectable 4.
Lay down two large pieces of foil, semi-overlapping. Take a few cabbage leaves and place them on the bottom of your foil. Layer some onion slices, then your potato slices and carrots. Place a dollop of butter on top of carrots and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place hamburger patty on top of veggies. Top with a few more cabbage leaves to act as a protective pouch. Fold up foil around meal. Wrap more foil around pouch so you have at least 3 layers of foil. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Place in hot coals and cook for 20 minutes, rotating at least once. Remove from fire, let cool a bit, unwrap, remove cabbage (or eat, it is good). Top with ketchup and dig in!
Dutch Oven Cobbler (or in your home oven Cobbler)
You may use any 2 cans of fruit/pie filling that you like. I think a mixed berry would be fabulous as well as straight up peaches or cherry, apple, etc. Skies the limit!
Difficulty: So Easy!
1 yellow cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple
1 1/2 sticks butter
Directions: Line dutch oven with several layers of foil, spray with cooking spray. Empty pie filling and fruit into dutch oven, stir with spoon to combine. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over top of fruit. Slice butter into tablespoon increments and place evenly over cake mix. Top with lid, place some coals on top of lid and set in hot coals. Bake for 15 minutes then check progress. If cooking too fast, remove from fire but keep coals on top as really just the top needs to bake. When golden brown and bubbly remove completely from heat and dish up with whipped cream! Enjoy.
You can also do this at home in your oven. Place ingredients in 9×13 pan, skipping the foil part. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour until golden and bubbly.
