FAVOURITE RECIPES

Postby GypsyLady » Wed Jul 02, 2008 4:22 pm

I thought it might be a nice idea to start a collection of forum members favourite recipes (camping or otherwise) to share with others.

One of my favourites for both home and camping is this mild sweet Tuna Curry and as most people have these ingredients in the pantry it is pretty quick and easy.

Tuna Curry

1 x 425g tin tuna (brine)
1 x 225g tin mushrooms (I use fresh)
85g butter or less if desired
1 onion
1 apple
2 cups beef stock or 3 cubes if preferred (I use chicken if I don't have beef)
1 teaspoon curry (more or less as desired)
1 tablespoon chutney
1 tablespoon sultanas
1 tablespoon flour

Melt butter, dice onions and apple and fry until golden brown.
Add mushrooms, curry, cook 1 min. Add flour, stock and bring to boil. Add tuna, chutney and sultanas.

Serve with rice.

I just love porcupine balls (and every kid I know does too)

Ingredients
500g minced beef
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1 finely chopped onion
1 lightly beaten egg
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons plain flour
Italian herbs
Salt and pepper
1 can tomato soup

Method
Mix all ingredients other than tomato soup in a large bowl. Shape mixture into walnut size balls. Place in a casserole dish (or camp oven). Mix soup with half a can of water and pour over meatballs. Cook for approximately 45 minutes or until rice is cooked.

When cooked the rice sticks out of the meatballs, looking like a porcupine!

For kids that won't eat their vegies, throw a grated carrott and zuchini into the mix - they won't know the difference.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

Not quite as interesting, but I can't go past toast on the open fire with REAL butter :roll:

Wow - I think you'd better only combine these two when there are no open fires or gas cylinders to be seen!

Not really a recipe, but a salty-sweety treat that i have been addicted to ever since an american friend visited me this year.

Kettle Corn (popcorn)

my method is-

1/4 cup of popping corn
2 teaspoons of vege oil or similar (not olive oil)
1 tablespoon of sugar
salt to taste

heat pot with oil and corn, wait until the oil starts to sizzle on the corn and add the sugar. Now be careful not to have the heat to high, and make sure you keep the corn moving while its popping. Take off the heat AS SOON as the popping slows down - a few unpopped kernals is better than burnt popcorn. Turn out into a bowl and add salt to taste - some people dont add salt but i like that salty sweet taste. Try it, i think you'll be amazed.

I love the popcorn idea - I never thought of doing it while camping - not only a great treat, but the kids will love the whole process.

Yeah it can be fun Amanda especially if doing it in the camp oven on the fire as opposed to on the stove.

Herb & Cheesy Beer Bread

1 cup tasty grated cheese
3 cups SR flour
3 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp or so of dried herbs of your own choice
1 can of beer
1 tbsp olive oil

Mix together the dry ingredients and cheese and add 1 Tbsp olive oil and one can or stubby of beer of your own choice. Mix it up until moist.

Spoon into a lightly oiled loaf pan. Cook at around 375 degrees for 35 minutes then sprinkle, or brush on 2 Tbsp. melted butter. Cook for another 23 minutes or so until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean. Cool for about 5 minutes before slicing.

This makes a tasty alternative to damper.
Serve with a spread of butter about 5 mins out of the oven.
