Although our camping weekend was cut short due to storms and possible tornadoes (no real safe spot from lightning and tornadoes in a tent with metal rods), we still had a great time while we were there!
The first night was really just getting down there, setting up camp, making some dinner, and eating some s'mores. :) While we were sleeping, something took Snoop's water bowl... probably a raccoon. And then Snoop was out wandering campsite for who knows how long before we noticed he slipped out of the tent!
The next day was full of kayaking, a short hike, and cooking on the campfire. I don't have a lot of experience cooking with fire, but everything turned out really delicious. Maybe it's because bacon was involved... maybe it was campfire.
These campfire potatoes are really easy! Just slice everything up, layer it in a cast iron pan or dutch oven, cover it, and enjoy the fire and the smells of yummy potatoes.
3 slices of bacon, cut
1 lb potatoes, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
.5 cup shredded cheddar
1 tbsp cooking spray
salt and pepper
1. Cut bacon into one inch slices to easily fit around the pan and get on your fork later without any cutting.
2. Slice up you potatoes and onions. Create layers of potatoes, then onions, and repeat until your out of them (I made two layers of both). Sprinkle salt and pepper. Top with cheese.
3. Spray with a generous amount of cooking spray (I used olive oil) and cover with aluminum foil. Put pan as close to the fire as possible.
4. Turn pan every 10 minutes to prevent burning and to get everything cooked just right. After 30 minutes, it is time to dig in!
