Comfort Food

What's your favourite thing to make that's fast and easy? I love beans and weiners... just put them in the pot & heat'em up... breakfast variation is bacon and eggs with beans and weiners.

Quesadillas. Flour tortillas, spread some refried beans, add some cheese and throw in a pan for about two minutes per side. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Good hot food. Beer likes to be served with it too.

Along the same line, tacos are awesome too. Just reheat hamburger or chicken or pork, throw it in the shell... guacamole, tomato, lettuce, salsa... yummy...

I consider myself a really good cook so I make things at home, take portions on the trip and reheat in the microwave..(I do all the cooking at home)

we did, however, have pre-cooked Fajita chix and beef with all the other fixin's, including Mango Salsa and Guacamole, wrapped in flour tortillas on our last trip

have an "out of this world" chicken/veggie recipe that can be served as a soup or over noodles or with dumplings (good too over mac cheese).....Bill

I've noticed on these food threads that bacon is a popular food choice. We make bacon wrapped baked potatos. (step 1 optional, but cuts down cooking time) Poke holes in taters, put in microwave til mostly cooked. Coat taters with your choice of oil (NOT 10W30!) Wrap a strip of bacon around potato, wrap with foil and bake. We made these with bacon wrapped filet mignon a while back... as my son-in-law said, the only thing missing was the bacon wrapped bacon!

We are taking some Jambalaya on the trip up to Happy Jack, Az tomorrow. We had some leftover from Dinner Monday so we are gonna juice it up with more chicken, sausage, corn and okra. Corn muffins or Maybe some biscuits in the Dutch oven?

@Whiskey...is your recipe a secret? If not, share please! Thx.

this recipe is from the "Pioneer Woman" collection - the Cooking Channel or the Food Network - Chicken & Dumplings (tho I don't like her Dumplings)

2 Chix Boobs & 4 Chix Thighs - cut into pieces (I like the dark meat Chix)
Flour - seasoned with S&P, Garlic Powder, Paprika - in a gallon freezer bag
6 or more Carrots - cut bite sized
6 or more ribs Celery - cut bite sized
1 Yellow Onion - chopped
2 Tblsp Garlic - minced
tsp Thyme
tsp Turmeric
6 cups Chix Broth (enough to cover all)
1/2 cup Apple Cider (or "juice" if ya can't find Cider)
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
Olive Oil & Butter
__________________

toss Chix in seasoned Flour & brown (in a large pot) in Oil/Butter (eyeball amount) - set aside. Wilt all veggies in same pot - add Thyme & Turmeric - add Cider, Cream & Broth. Bring to a boil then simmer, covered, until Chix has finished cooking & Carrots are done.

this can be used as a Soup, or have Dumplings added when boiling & simmering, or with Wide Egg Noodles, or (as I did last night) spooned over some Mac Cheese & microwaved.....Bill

Weiner supreme as we call them (Hot dog sliced lengthwise and put cheddar cheese in the slit then wrap in partially cooked bacon and heat in oven to desired look)

Wife makes fried rice in a rice cooker...easy and very delicious. The only prep she has to do is to cook the scramble eggs, bacon and onions beforehand then all other ingredients get tossed into cooker and in about 45min...Fried Rice

Fresh Pickerel (or Walleye) is fast and easy, nice big shore lunch frying pan, some hot oil, Italian bread crumbs and you've got a VERY tasty snack! Now catching the fish???...that isn't always fast OR easy! lol

Thanks Whiskey. I will try it real soon. I'm gonna do a poker camp out with some buddies in a few weeks, so that will probably be on the menu.

I use less Chix Stock if I'm gonna spoon it over noodles and re-heat - more for cooking dumplings with it or for having as a Soup - and don't skimp on the Apple Cider/Juice - it sorta makes the taste of the dish.....Bill

we like the boy scout dinners as we always called them some call them foil packet dinners. just take a hamburger patty and place on a piece of heavy duty foil. I like to use about 1/3-1/2 lb, cover with onion slices to taste, sprinkle with salt and pepper, cover with potato slices, salt and pepper again, then some sliced carrots, then salt and pepper again. I do it several ways you can cook them right on the coals of a fire or on the grate of a grill. They take longer on the grill. On the hot coals I usually cook for 20 minutes the flip and do another 20 minutes. The carrots are especially good if they get a little burnt it brings out the natural sugars in them. All you need is a little catsup and your ready to go.

We also like to use the rome pie irons Follow the directions on the package and make sure your irons are well seasoned before you use them. We like to make pizzas using two slices of bread, pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and any other of your favorite toppings. You can also make grilled cheese,ruebens, toasted pbj, and some guys even take hamburger and put in iron and cook a burger. All are good and fast to make.

cream gravy with sausage crumbles and fresh biscuits is our breakfast comfort food, good in summer but great in winter.
