Camping Aloha Style

So what exactly do you get when you cross a Navy Seal and a Jersey transplant who got kicked out to of the scouts, well a mess what else.  Never fear I can always find something for these two to cook up no matter the situation even if it is for the Aloha Girls.  Then again you might even give these recipes a whirl.  Though I might leave out the knives, wild boars, hijacked diamonds, it tends to make things a bit crazy..

Campfire Foil Packs

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cubed

2 onions, diced
1-8 oz package mushrooms, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
4 cloves garlic, sliced
4 small potatoes, cubed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lemon, juiced

1. In a large bowl, or a large zip-top bag, combine the chicken, onion, mushrooms, yellow pepper, red pepper, garlic, and potatoes. Pour in the olive oil and lemon juice, then mix well.
2. Evenly divide the mixture between 4 large sheets of aluminum foil. Top each with another sheet of foil, and roll up the edges tightly. Wrap each packet again, securely in another sheet of foil to double wrap.
3. Cook in the hot coals of a campfire until the chicken is opaque and the potatoes are tender, around 40 minutes.

Of course you can cook on a gas grill but if camping like an Aloha girl!!!! 

Thanksgiving Dinner

1 turkey cutlet
1 cup of prepared stuffing
½ cup of turkey gravy
½ cup of green beans
¼ dried cranberries
salt, pepper, thyme, marjoram

  1. Place turkey cutlet on sheet of foil. Put the stuffing on top and the green beans around the cutlet. 
  2. Pour gravy over everything and sprinkle with the dried cranberries and seasonings. 
  3. Wrap in a tent pack and place on hot coals or grill for 20 minutes.

Corn on the Cob

4 ears of shucked corn
¼ cup butter or olive oil
Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
salt and pepper
4 ice cubes

  1. Place the ears of corn on a large sheet of foil. Spread the butter on top. 
  2. Sprinkle with the seasonings and Parmesan cheese. Put the ice cubes on top. 
  3. Wrap up into a tent pack. Place on hot coals  or grill and cook for 20 minutes. 

Pineapple Upside Donut Cake

4  pineapple rings
4 Tbsp butter, softened
4 Tbsp brown sugar
4 cake donut

  1. Place  each donut on sheet of foil. Mix the softened butter and brown sugar together and spread it over each donut. 
  2. Place a pineapple ring on top. 
  3. Then wrap the donut in a tight flat pack. Place on hot coals or grill and cook for 5-7 minutes.

Sensational Campfire S'mores

6 regular sized chocolate bars 
12 whole graham crackers, each split into 2-inch squares
24 large marshmallows

  1. Roast marshmallows over the campfire, making them just as you need them for each S'more.
  2. For each S'more place one roasted marshmallow and one small square of chocolate between two graham cracker squares. Give it all a little squeeze and take a bite!


Chocolate lovers may want to double the amount of chocolate.
Try spreading the crackers with peanut butter before adding chocolate and marshmallow.
Cashew or almond butter or a chocolate hazelnut spread. 
Raspberry jam or preserves also make a great spread before adding marshmallow and chocolate.
