 I'm helping a buddy out, and need some ideas for easy (really easy) recipes that he can fix before his wife gets home to him and the three kids.  I need dishes that use units of measure like a "can-o-this" and a "package-o-that" - stir together and put in the oven at 350 till she gets home."  I'm not really looking for specific recipes, as I can usually make stuff "work", but I'm running out of dishes.  Stews, casseroles and crock-pot stuff would be great.  I'm also trying to stay away from fresh foods as much as possible, since that's too much like actual cooking for him.  Any ideas would be appreciated.


 


Also, main dishes, side dishes and desserts are all welcome!

 OK this one is easy.


One can of Cream Of Mushroom soup,  You could use Cream of Celery too if you like.  Follow the instructions on the can.


Heat up the soup.  Throw in a cup to a cup and a half of dried noodles rotinee is good or any kind you like will work.


When the noodles have simmered for a while.  Throw in a can of Canned chicken.   It is chunks of chicken but comes in a can kind of like tuna.


When the noodles are done, your done.  Best to keep the soup at a simmer and not a rolling boil.


Thisdish also works well when you are camping.  One pot meal.


Add pepper and salt to taste.

Take a look at Kraftfoods.com, they have a lot of very simple recipes that he should be able to handle. I am not much of a cook myself and can easily handle the recipes I have made from this website.

a dish That I make that is yummy and easy is well not sure what the name is but here you go lol....


1 bag of boiled wild rice- the instant rice works fast- COOKED


pork chops


cream of mushroom soup- big can enough to cover the rice and porkchops


put this in a casserole dish  bake at 350  until chops are done


serve it with a can of green beans  and  biscuits....... yes I am a southern girl so this might not be an appealing meal for all lol but it's one of my favorites you can use chicken also..


 


another one would be ghoulash that is pretty easy....


macroni noodles, hamburger meat, stewed tomatoes and cheese..


brown the hamburger, cook the noodles and a few cans of stewed tomatoes and big can of tomatoe sauce and add cheese... it's a good winter dish...


a good dessert is blue berry delight ( if the kids like blueberries)


layer a casserole dish with graham crackers use blueberry pie filling to cover the crackers top with coolwhip & creamcheese mixed together and just keep layering in this order put it in the fridge to chill best dessert EVER!!  :)

Tried this on the family last night, it was pretty good ! Just remember to add your favorite seasoning. We like things a little spicer than this. Already planning my "additions" the next time I make it !!!

Yeah, I should have added: season to taste.  I like to add some crushed chili flakes. It's really good stuff sitting around a campfire when it's cold outside. Warms the innards, ha ha.

brooks,


There are 2 really easy recipes I have posted in other threads.  Look at Chicken Ole and Grapes Jubilee.  They are simple and take nearly no energy.


The chicken ole is done in a crock-pot and can be reheated and eaten for days on end.  The most time consuming part of it is boiling the chicken.  Everything is put in the pot and turned on to heat.


The grapes jubilee does have fresh grapes but those are simple.  They don't have to be cut.  It is best if left overnight but I have served it immediately and people love it.


Also, if they like fish, this is easy.  Take salmon or tuna fillets and a can of crushed pineapple.  Spray a large piece of foil.  Pour 1/2 pineapples on foil.  Lay fillets on top and cover with remaining pineapple.  Close foil around fish and bake at 350 until white all the way through.  The pineapples keep it from tasting fishy and if the foil is closed well, there is no clean-up.


I hope these help.  I'll keep thinking and looking!

Take a can of Cream of Mushroom soup (see a trend building here?) and pour into a large bowl. Add some Worchestshire sauce and a little terryaki sauce and mix well. Brown some boneless skinless chick brests in a non stick skillit with a little olive oil over med to med high heat. While browning sprinkle  on a little lemon pepper seasoning. Make sure you brown it covered so it won't get dry.


Start a pot of rice boiling...the old fashion way takes 20 minutes; instructions are in any cookbook. Once you cover the rice pour your soup mix over the chicked, cover and reduce heat to med low. at 7 minutes turn the chicken and stir the mix. & minutes later do it again and toss a bag of steamable vegitables in the microwave.


When the rice is done so is the chicken and veggies. Done. Ring the dinner bell.


To break things up use the same plan but in your soup add bar b que sauce and change lemon pepper to pepper. Instead of rice use egg noodles. This can also be done with pork chops, pork steaks or round steak. When using steak  or bbq with any of the above I also add about 2 shots of bourbon.


If you can put some ice in a glass of bourbon I can drink it. If you can't I can still drink it.

I'm going to have to try this one out too. 


Seems like you could but cream of mushroom soup on a old shoe and simmer for a while and it would taste good.

I also made a deer camp omlette.  First ya cook your bacon in a cast iron skillet - of course the skillet is sitting on a grate on top of a mesquite fire. When the bacon is ALMOST done, ya pour off the grease. Now cut the bacon up into smaller pieces, add a dozen fresh eggs, some green onions, green part and all, a little chili flakes, and start stirring so the eggs don't burn, When the eggs are almost done, add cheese to the top. You can add mushroom and just about anything else ya care to have. Sittin by a campfire on a cold morning after just waking up, fresh camp brewedcoffee and deer camp omlette, I'm drooling on my key board talking about it.

My family likes my camp beef stew. I save the bacon grease from breakfast, put it in my cast iron pot, add a bag of picksweet seasoning blend (onions, bell peppers and celery, saves on me having to cut it up either at the camp or  do it at home and haul it out there ) and let that cook down over the camp fire. Add a can of tomatoes, and the stew meat let that brown add potatoes, carrots  and water season to taste and let it roll. Keep a close eye on your fire and your pot !!! Add water as it cooks down all day !!!! I'll leave that on the fire from midmorning until 5 or 6 oclock. The taters and carrots will cook to nothing leaving this a thick tasty soup you can eat it with crackers or by its self. On a cool evening this will really stick to your ribs, and of course the fire gives it that smokey taste. like I said, keep an eye on your fire and your pot !!!!


Dee, these 2 need to be moved to a camp cooking thread hahahahahaha Not an easy thread for this poor guy !
