What's a good somewhat easy dinner recipe for a group of about 15, mixed between kids and adults, with some fussy eaters. I did the dutch oven chicken already. I thought about bacon wrapped hot dogs, but I never seem to get them right. looking for something besides the usual burgers and dogs. Last time out, we actually had pizza delivered for something different. But that was in part due to the 100+ temperatures.


Really need to get my blogs back up to date

Now you're talkin'! That sounds great sorefoot. My brother is always placed with that chore when 3 or more families are camping together. He "pre-cooks" the chili then freezes it. It will thaw slightly while in the cooler then it goes into his dutch oven and heated over the fire. kettle

How does the smoke always know where I am sitting at the campfire?

I've done all kinds of stuff for groups, I do a lot in crockpots, but many can be done over the campfire too.

Tacos / Baked Potatoes (fixings are almost the same, gives people more choices)

Sloppy joes

BLT

Kabobs (let them make their own with what they want on them - shrimp, steak, chicken, peppers, etc)

Corn on the cob



Different desert - how about:
Cake in a Mug
Ingredients:
4 Tbsp. cake flour
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Dash vanilla extract
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips (optional)

Equipment:
1 large metal coffee mug

Instructions:
1. Add dry ingredients to mug; mix well with a fork
2. Add egg; mix well.
3. Add milk, oil, vanilla, and chocolate chips; mix well.
4. Place the mug on hot coals and cook till cake rises over the rim.
5. Let it cool slightly, then eat out of the mug.

We've got a big (12 people) family, and chili is always one of the meals when camping. We do ours in an old iron kettle on a tri-pod. The kids love it cooked long on the fire. Their favorite.
