Camping! Just the word evokes many feelings. If you already love it, you might fondly remember trips of the past—recreation with friends and family, or quiet times communing with nature. If you’re new to it, you might be excited about the mysterious forests or vast ocean vistas you’ll see.
One thing that hasn’t changed about camping is the joy of a tasty meal prepared over an open fire. This recipe for Campfire Stir-Fry is quick and easy, and the flavors are enhanced by enjoying the meal in the great outdoors!
Use cubes of beef or chicken and/or your favorite selection of vegetables (including canned or frozen vegetables) in this simple recipe.
8 chicken or beef sausages
6 small new potatoes, thinly sliced
2 small summer squashes cut into rounds
2 large carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, mashed and peeled
1 stalk celery, diced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
Place all ingredients into a 13×9 inch baking pan (an aluminum, disposable pan works fine) or a large, cast-iron skillet. Drizzle the ingredients with oil. Sprinkle on seasonings. Mix everything together until coated with oil and spices. Place over medium coals for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sausages are cooked through and the potatoes are tender.
