One Skillet For Your Camping Cooking Needs
by Billie Ann Woo
When you’re on your next trip in the wilderness, don’t forget to pack your trusty cast iron skillet! Remember that you can use the skillet for every meal:
Breakfast: Bacon & Eggs
Side: Gently fire-toasted bread
Tip: Reserve the bacon fat for cooking later.
Lunch: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Side: Grilled Corn on the Cob
Tip: Hello bacon fat! It’ll give your sandwiches a meaty crunch.
Dinner: Daily Catch
Side: Foil-wrapped Baked Potatoes
Tip: Do this in reverse – do a potato hash and foil wrap your fish!
Dessert: Skillet Apple Cake
Side: Grab your Bialetti/stovetop espresso maker for a cup of coffee
Tip: Reserve a few slices for breakfast the next day!
And when you’re done cooking, don’t forget to store your food where the bears can’t get it…or else feel free to use the skillet as a protective weapon!
