Apple Delight Core an apple just over halfway. Fill the hollow with cinnamon and marshmallows. Skewer it on a forked stick and hold it over the coals until the marshmallow melts and the apple is easy to puncture.
Banana Hot Boat Cut a v-shaped wedge from the top of an unpeeled banana. Fill the wedge with pieces of chocolate and marshmallow. Wrap the banana in foil and place it on the coals for 8-10 minutes.
Chili Bag Cook up a pot of chili (homemade or canned). Buy individual size bags of Doritos or something similar. Cut an X on the front of the bag and open. Put the chili on top of the chips, and shredded cheese. And you have portable lunchtime nachos/tacos.
Corn Remove the silk and soak the ears in water. Lay the ears on hot coals for about 8 minutes per side.
Dog in a blanket Wrap a wiener in biscuit dough, skewer it on a stick and bake over hot coals. Or slit the wiener and insert a piece of cheese before you wrap and cook it. Be imaginative.
Egg in orange peel Scoop out the orange pulp and eat it, then grease the inside of the peel, crack an egg into it, and set it on the coals to cook.
Egg on skewer Prick a tiny hole in both ends of an egg and skewer it, but be careful not to go through the yolk. Place on a forked stick and hold over coals. Or, coat the egg with a stiff mud paste and cook covered with mud in the coals for 20 minutes.
Eggs in Paper Cup Fill a cup with water and drop in an egg, with or without the shell. Set the cup into the coals.
Eggs and Bacon in a Paper Bag Put strips of bacon on the bottom of the bag, crack an egg or two on top of the bacon, fold over the top of the bag and hang it on a stick over hot coals.
Hang-um High Chicken Hang a whole chicken on a string from a tripod over a bed of hot coals. Fashion an aluminum foil umbrella over the chicken to reflect the heat.
Hot Rock Cooking Lay a flat, hot rock on coals and use it as a griddle to cook hamburger, eggs, steak, fish, bacon, or bread.
Kabob Skewer meat, potatoes and another vegetable (tomato, zucchini, mushrooms) on a stick. Cook over hot coals.
No Cook Fudge Try this one at a campfire while you tell a story, sing songs, etc. Have the boys pass it around to knead so everyone gets a chance.
½ gallon ziplock bag
½ cups cocoa
3 ounces cream cheese
1 pound powdered sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Place all ingredients in the ziplock bag. Work out the air. Kneed 25-30 min. Nuts or peanut butter may be added at the end.
Onion Oven Cut an onion in half and scoop out all but the two outside layers. Crack an egg into each half, or fill with chopped, seasoned meat, cap, and place directly on hot coals.
Potato1 Cut out the center of a potato. Fill with hamburger and diced onion, or with butter and cheese. Plug the hole with some of the pieces you removed. Coat potato with 2 inches of thick mud and place in coals. Cook for about an hour.
Potato2 Slice off the top of a spud, hollow out a tunnel, and crack an egg into the hollow. Rub a bit of the egg white around the cut top, and then put the lid back on the potato. Wrap in foil and bake in coals.
Stick Bread Press a wad of dough onto the end of a stick and bake over hot coals. Try cinnamon twists. Pat dough into a rectangle, spread with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar, and cut into 2 strips. Wrap strip around a green stick and toast over the coals.
