Cinnamon Apple Pie in Pie Iron

pie iron

Cinnamon and sugar mixed

Can of apple pie filling (one can makes about 4-5 pies)

Butter one side of both pieces of bread. Put butter side down in pie iron. Spoon some apple pie filling onto bread. sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mix over apples to taste. Cover the filling with the other piece of bread butter side up. Close in the iron, and cook over the fire about 3 minutes each side. Check frequently to prevent burning. Cooking time will depend on how hot the fire is. Take pie out when both sides of the bread are golden brown. Put on plate and sprinkle the top with more cinnamon and sugar mix. Enjoy!

Drunken Irish Marshmallows

 

This is a treat for those 21 and older campers

All you need is a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream, Marshmallows, cup and fork.

Pour a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream in cup. Cook Marshmallow over the campfire to your liking. Dip Marshmallow in the Bailey’s cup. Make sure you dip the marshmallow in Bailey’s quickly, because if you leave it in too long it will start to break down and melt.  Take it out of cup with a fork and eat! Easy, and delicious!

Grilled Fish Packets

Ingredients:

Spray butter

Tilapia fillets-one large or two smaller per packet

1 c. fresh green beans – cut into 1 in. pieces

1 medium summer squash – sliced

2 cloves garlic – minced

2 Tb. parsley

1 c. white wine

salt and pepper

1 medium onion chopped (I used onion onion by tastefully simple for onion flavor)

Aluminum foil

(Makes 4 packets)

lay two pieces of foil on top of each other for each packet. Spray center of the foil with spray butter to keep from sticking. In a bowl combine onion, green beans and squash. Add white wine, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Season Tilapia with salt and pepper on both sides and place in the center of the foil. Top the fish with equal parts of the vegetable mixture. Sprinkle parsley on top of the vegetables before sealing. Bring the two wide ends of the foil together and fold to seal. Fold the smaller ends of the packet until tightly secured. Leave a little room in packet for steam to form. Grill 10-12 minutes turning once. We cooked these packets on the grill instead of open fire to control the heat better, and not burn the fish. Open packets, and enjoy

We had to run to the store during this trip to get more!
