Food to go – A collection of road-tested recipes

An electric skillet is a great resource when cooking on the road, but all of these recipes work just as well in a cast-iron skillet over a campfire.

Roasted Broccoli & Tomatoes also can be cooked in a foil pack on the grill. But be sure to turn the foil pack carefully and frequently to prevent scorching.

When making a foil pack, consider making single serving packs. Smaller packs cook more evenly and are easier to handle. To make the foil pack, center the ingredients on a sheet of heavy duty foil, leaving enough on all sides to be able to bring up the  sides and double fold the top and ends to seal the pack. Be sure to leave room for heat circulation inside.
