Right out of the can?

What do you do to jazz up whatever it is that comes in a can?

Tomato soup:

Prepare per directions on can, always use milk instead of water. Serve soup in bowl, add grated cheese (whatever kind you like) and Tabasco sauce to taste.

Beans:

Fry up 2 or 3 strips of bacon with chopped onion in skillet. Add beans when bacon is done. Have mustard handy when served. Some folks go nuts with ketchup, brown sugar and all that, I just get the kind with all that already in there. It's just beans...

Mushrooms:

When grilling steaks I remove the paper lable from canned mushrooms, remove lid from can. (Make sure can is not lined with plastic, some mushrooms come that way) Drain off 1/2 liquid. Add big pat of butter and worstershire sauce. Set the can in the corner of the grill while cooking steaks. Serve mushrooms over steaks.

Tell us what you do to take the ordinary out of the stuff in the can....

One more camper favorite.
It's "stolen" from the boy scouts.
They called it HoBo's and would make it with
aluminum foil and toss it in the coals to cook.
We cook it in a small aluminum cake pan covered with foil.
You can cook it on the coals or just place it over medium
flame of your gas stove.
Cook for 30 minutes--

Place one hamburger pattie (We buy the frozen
ones from Sam's club) for each person in the
bottom of the pan.
Add a large can of veg-all vegetables -juice and all.
Add a can of green beans drained.
You can add a potato cut into dice size pieces if
you want to stretch it.
Season with lots of Mrs Dash and seasoned salt to taste.
Cook 30 minutes.
You can use a foil bag and eat on paper or plastic plates
and have virtually no clean up.
It takes 5 minutes to put together and you can enjoy your
beer or wine while it's cooking.

Add cold apple sauce or canned stewed cinnamon apples
and you've got a hearty meal.

Note-- since this is just as easily cooked on the stove,
we often save it in case of rain or have it the last night
regardless.

Happy Camping!!!

I like to add BBQ sauce to canned beans. (Can you say...Famous Dave's Devil's Spit?)
Kick's it up a notch.

I like butter in my Spaghettios too.

Everything that Chef Boy-ar-dee makes tastes like preservative to me! Never could figure out why kids like it so much, but in lean times he kept them from starving!

Same with the boxed mac and cheese. I couldn't eat it, but the kids loved it!

Canned kidney beans, canned diced tomatoes and cooked ground beef and form the basis of a decent campfire chili. Play with the seasonings until you get something that suits your taste.
