Planning on going hiking or camping this holiday period? One thing you’re going to need to keep in mind is how to carry and prepare your food. While campsites don’t have gourmet restaurants, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have great food! With a reliable gas camping stove, cooking a delicious meal is so easy!
Here are three recipes you could try next time you’re out in the wilderness!
Campfire scrambled eggs
For each egg there should be 1 tablespoon of water and 1 tablespoon of butter. If you’re cooking 3 eggs, you should have 3 tablespoons of water and 3 tablespoons of butter.
Add the ingredients in a saucepan, but let the yolks remain unbroken.
Stir and let the water and egg whites mix.
Put the pan over the fire.
Once the eggs start to warm, you can break the yolks and mix it altogether.
When the butter starts to melt, remove the pan from the heat. Keep stirring.
Take the pan on and off the heat repeatedly; 30 seconds over the heat and then 15 seconds away from the heat should do the trick. Make sure you keep stirring. Repeat the process until the eggs are cooked to fluffy perfection.
Corned beef hash
1 can of corned beef
1 medium onion
1 egg per person (optional)
2 to 3 medium potatoes
2 to 3 tablespoon of butter or oil
Dice the potatoes and onions into small chunks. Smaller chunks cook faster
Add butter or oil to the pan, and then add the onions. Cook on a gentle heat.
Add the potatoes and cook until they turn soft. Stir.
Add the corned beef and let it mix with the other ingredients.
This meal is best enjoyed with eggs. You can fry the eggs on the same pan so that they can absorb some of the flavour too.
Salt and pepper
Wash and cut the veggies at home beforehand.
Seal them in a Ziploc bag along with the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to soak.
