Stuffed French Toast Mountain Pie

Stuffed French Toast Mountain Pie

This recipe was unbelievable…something you’d expect in a restaurant, not camping. This entry was a hands down breakfast winner that you must certainly try. And, if you have leftovers, simply cook it up in single slices and top with the banana, walnuts and either syrup or confectioner sugar.

Texas Sheet Cake

Let’s talk about the obvious. This is not a recipe that you make at camp. No, this chocolate delight is a make-at-home and throw in the car prepared kind of thing. The only thing that suits it for camping is that EVERYONE demands it. A few years ago, I tried a different dessert. A bar-type version of a camping classic. You know, the one that starts with s’m. I can’t say it. That trip I was badgered endlessly with the question, “What was wrong with the chocolate cake?” “I really could go for Texas Sheet Cake.”

The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off

The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off – 2012

It happened. The three of us that made it camping came loaded up with three recipes each for mountain pies and each night we prepped, cooked, and shared our entries into the mountain pie cook-off. Continue reading “The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off”

Have meat. Will camp.

Camp Marinades Perfect for Travel

When we take longer camping trips, we cook. Nothing is better than a great meal after a day outside. But meat and marinades were made for one another. I mix them at home and put them in Mason jars. They don’t leak and are easy to carry…besides, prefer glass to plastic when the base is acidic. Continue reading “Have meat. Will camp.”

The Classic Pizza Mountain Pie

Camping Basics: Favorite Pizza Mountain Pie

This is where it all started…the classic mountain pie. Pizza. How could you go wrong?

Well, you can’t go wrong with this, but you may tire of it. We finally did after twenty years and launched the Great Mountain Pie Cook-Off to add some new ideas to our late night cooking.

But always keep the ingredients to this one handy. Something tells me someone will get a hankering for it every trip and then everyone else will want one too. There are not quantities listed, as everyone is different… some like it extra cheesy and some extra saucy. Just make it how you like.

Dinner Entry: Meatball Sandwich Mountain Pie

Meatball Mountain Pie

This is an original. Being on a meatball sandwich kick lately, I just had to try it. It did not disappoint. Easy, delicious and well-recieved in the Mountain Pie Cook-Off. Continue reading “Dinner Entry: Meatball Sandwich Mountain Pie”

Dessert Entry: Peanut Butter and Banana ‘Elvis’ Mountain Pies

These are delightful little buggers. I don’t care what any judges say. May favorite dessert mountain pie. Of course, I have also gone on record to saying that if I could only take one food item with me to Gilligan’s Island, it would be peanut butter (creamy Jif, of course…there really shouldn’t be any other kind.)

The Best Salsa Ever

Salsa Away from that Jarred Stuff

There is absolutely nothing particular about this recipe that has anything to do with camping, other than it is fantastic and eating it around the fire or around a picnic table playing games would absolutely be welcomed. There is this Mexican restaurant in Pittsburgh called Emiliano’s who serves salsa that tastes just like this. Where I usually jump at the cheese sauce to compliment the salsa and chips, you just simply don’t need it with salsa that tastes like this. You will swear off the store bought stuff forever!
