A cookbook to let me OUTTA the kitchen! I love cooking on an open campfire when DBF and I camp and my wonderful kids got their DM a new gas grill for Mothers Day...so here are some of my favorite recipes (mine and others) that I love to do OUTTA of the kitchen!!! Mind you now on my gas grill I have even baked a cake and I'm experimenting on the Weber and the campfire with baking...so look out for those recipes!!!
I love steak (esp on the grill)and am always on the look out for recipes. This comes off a BBQ/grilling website and is very good. The pesto adds a nice topping flavor to the grilled steaks. I have done these on the countertop grill and on the campfire also with no change.
Rib eyes are my favorite steak. This one has a nice rub and a slightly spicy salsa. Remember that if you use bamboo skewers to soak them in water for about 1 hour prior to griling to avoid them burning.
From a griling web site these are awesome! I love the fact that they are done on the grilland that a pork loin is something I aways have in the freezer. Cuban sandwiches feature a distinctive combination of marinated pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and dill pickles. Slice them in halves or quarters and arrange on a platter for great party fare. Char the buns on both sides for a "Media Noche" (midnight) version of this Cuban classic. We dont care for the charred buns but to each his own......prep time includes marinating time.
Being German, fall reminds me of Oktober fest, brats and beer! BUT brats also remind me of football games and the north woods too! This is a different type of brat recipe, esp with the addition of the marinated/grilled onions. From a grilling website. Prep time is marinating time and these can be done on a tabletop grill, outside or over the campfire.
This brat recipes screams Oktoberfest to me. It is best done on the grill as the sauerkraut needs to cook indirectly, but I have done it on the campfire, by arranging the coals. Serve with a good German beer!
Got this recipe off another website and originally I made it on the campfire, but dont try it unless you are campfire cooking savvy cause it does get tricky. Best done on a grill and with a cast iron skillet. This is great for breakfast with cheesy eggs, hash browns and a big slab of grilled ham, or with a big bowl of cheesy potato soup for lunch or supper! Any leftovers make a great addition for stuffing too. I have also added any leftover corn to the batter for added flavor.
This is great to serve with grilled chicken or pork! Cook potatoes first, then move to an area without coals to keep warm while you are cooking your meat. Recipe can be varied to suit any dietary restrictions you may have. Can be baked in oven for 1 & 1 2
When you know you're going to have a hectic week, you're tired of BBQ sauces and Shake 'n Bake, but you want something a "little more" without having to forage for bizarre ingredients, this is the marinade to turn to. Let chops marinate overnight then quickly broil or grill and presto: yummy dinner without a lot of fuss. A "quickie" will work; pop 'em in the marinade in the morning and serve by dinnertime.
From The Southern Living Cookbook. A simple and unusual way to prepare potatoes. Crispy with a lovely brown color and a touch of sweetness from molasses. I always use a cast iron skillet. Recipe says it serves 3 to 4 but they go quickly.
The mayonnaise in place of the butter makes the bread toast evenly and gives a similar yet different crispiness. This is how they made it on the grill at a diner I used to frequent, the kind where the grill is behind the counter and you can watch. CAUTION: using low fat or no fat mayo or even miracle whip will change the outcome of the final product, the first 2 contain water and the second sugar that does not act in the same manor as an oil or fat sub.
This is my mom's recipe. Not sure exactly where she got it from, but it has been a family favorite for years. The original recipe is served over cooked rice, but my dad doesn't like rice, so he eats it over cooked egg noodles. It's great both ways. This is a great recipe that uses ingredients that you usually have sitting around in the cupboard.
These delicious fritters were made weekly by the school cafeteria cook who, "after hours" let me sample them ...ummmmm so good and easy to make. I never want to lose this recipe! Try them they're nice with a pork dinner .. but my family loves them for dessert...you decide.
