ditto, I make these and in several different ways, always very good. Plus you can prepare ahead of time.

we've introduced the kids to "Hobo Pies" made with a campfire iron/pan. Our "favorite" camping foods tend to be burgers and hot dogs.

Well guess what happened? The cardboard caught fire, the edges were burnt, and the middle was still frozen.

This is the same girl who also thought that waterproofing spray for my tent was a bad idea and chose to put a blue tarp over the entire tent... when it was 90+ degrees out. No, not just over the roof, staked the tarp over the entire thing, on 3 sides. It was over 100 in the tent.

Sorry for the hijack

Bacon-wrapped prime rib in the dutch oven over the camp fire. We've made the mountain man breakfast in the DO many times and it is awesome as well!

Prime rib roast (we figure 3/4 to 1 lb per person)
Thick sliced bacon
Whole garlic cloves - 5 or 6, depending on your roast size
salt & pepper

peel garlic cloves; cut in half. Make small slits in roast and shove the garlic cloves into the meat. Salt & pepper generously. Wrap roast with thick sliced bacon.

Put in a preheated DO over the campfire for about an hour, just so a meat thermometer gets near rare. (Temp will rise as it "rests")

You can hang the DO over the fire on a tripod, or you can put the on the ground with coals underneath. Put a few coals on top so the heat comes from the top as well, which will cook and crisp up your bacon.

In less than 2 hours, you will have an awesome prime rib!!

We also make mushroom and onions in au jus to put over the top.
Yum yum!!

Hot dogs burnt black on the outside and still cold on the inside on a stale bun with no condiments. Oh wait! You said favourite meal, not most common.

my favorite meals are the ones I make in my dutch oven but the best meal I had camping was when I didn't want to cook and we ordered a pizza loaded with all the good stuff while we waited for delivery we got a nice fire going then made s'mores for desert

Mine is nothing special but I love cheddar lil' smokies over the fire with a couple beers. Don't know what it is but when you cook them over a fire man they are good.
