What do you put in those little foil squares and toss on the grill? I love them because they are more forgiving while I am trying to get the rest of the meal on the table. Fathers Day, I put sliced fresh peaches with butter, brown sugar & cinnamon on the grill while we ate dinner. Served over vanilla ice cream. Oooo-la-la.

I haven't had these since girl scouts (which I stopped going to in fourth grade, so a REALLY LONG TIME AGO) but I remember them fondly.


Campfire Orange Cakes
Ingredients:
• 10-12 oranges
• 1 box of yellow cake mix

Directions:
Using a knife, slice off the tops of the oranges about half an inch from the top. Be sure to save the tops, as they will be used later on in the baking process.

Hollow out each orange by scooping out the orange pulp using a spoon. (reserve pulp for another use; you won't use it here)

Prepare the cake batter according to package directions.

Spoon cake batter into each hollowed out orange until ~3/4 full, then place the top back on each orange. Wrap each orange carefully with heavy aluminum foil, and place directly into the campfire. Let the campfire cakes cook for 15-20 minutes, turning once or twice to ensure even cooking. Unwrap the foil, remove the lid and serve with a spoon.


The site I grabbed this recipe from suggested swapping chocolate cake, or using lemons with lemon cake mix, but I only remember ever having the orange with yellow cake.

Ooooh, I think the oranges would be awesome with Devil's food cake.

ooo0o0o0oo0o I went to a "Women in the Outdoors"** thing last may in Sebastian and we did a bunch of these. I had so much fun, I can't wait to do it again.

Here are some of the ones we learned, they say they are for coals or on a grill, but I don't see why you couldn't do them in a hot (400 degree) oven too:

Worm Potatoes

4 small baking potatoes
4 sausage links – brown n serve type
Salt
Pepper

“Core” the potato as you would an apple. Then place then Sausage link in the middle, sprinkle with salt, and pepper and wrap in foil. Place it in the hot coals for 45 – 55 minutes turning occasionally.

Charlene
********************

Snicker Tortilla

4 Snicker Bars
4 8 inch Tortillas
Marshmallows
4 Tablespoons Peanut butter
bananas*

Lay each Tortilla on a flat surface, Spread 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter on each tortilla, unwrap and lay 1 snicker bar on each tortilla, sprinkle marshmallows over the top each snicker. Fold each end of the tortilla up and roll each one around the snicker bar. Wrap Alumnum foil around each tortilla and place on hot coals or on a grill turning every 1-2 minutes for 6 to 8 minutes. Unwrap aluminum foil and cut tortilla in half to serve 8.

* Optional - We subbed bananas for the snickers for some of these too... they were SO good, and healthy!

Charlene
********************
Kielbasa Potato & Onion – for 6 servings

3 Idaho Potato
2 Vidalia onion
1 pkg of Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage
6 pats of butter

Slice onions ¼ inch think, Cube potatoes on the small side, slice kielbasa into ¼ inch rounds. Cut 6 - 12 inch foil squares. Layer 1 pat butter, onion, potato, and kielbasa on each square, fold and place on coals. Flip every 10 minutes depending on heat of coals and dinner should be complete in 40 minutes.

We made these this evening. Lot of these. We prefer the banana to the Snickers, and Nutella to peanut butter. Nutella is very nice in this app. :D

When my girlfriend and I would go camping, she would say, "bring that Chikenzhit"

Here it is:

On a double thickness of foil place

1 chicken breast
Top with slices of Yellow squash and thinly sliced onion and a bit of minced garlic
Sprinkle heavily with Lipton's Onion Soup mix

Wrap tightly and slap on the grill

OOOPS Forgot that when you unwrap them, slather on some sour cream :)

This is was a great competition and a hard one to judge. Every dish was good; my family ate and enjoyed them all. Actually, quite a feat there. I will copy off these recipes and make them all again.

Tonight, we discussed all of the entries, tallied up the tally, and the winner is...
Charlene.

(Note to Fizzy - this was the 1st time my son liked yellow squash. Thanks!)

Thanks!! I'm glad everyone liked them!

I need a day or so to think of a new ingredient. I'll post one soon!
