Recipes from dozens of KOA guests are on the KOA website (http://www.Koa.com/camping-recipes). You’ll find creative menu ideas submitted by happy camper/cooks especially suited for campfire cooking, main dishes, breakfasts, side dishes, desserts, and snacks. The following is a sampling designed and tested by KOA staff.
Camper’s Pizza Skillet Delight
(makes 4 to 6 servings)
1 pound ground beef
1 can (4 ounces) mushrooms, sliced
1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
3 cups Uncle Ben’s Quick Brand Rice
1 large green pepper, chopped
1½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon oregano
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
6 pieces Mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
Brown meat in large skillet over campfire or cook stove. Drain. Drain mushrooms, reserving juice. Add water to juice to make 2 cups liquid. Add liquid, pizza sauce, rice, mushrooms, green pepper, salt, and oregano to beef. Stir. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan and arrange Mozzarella on top of beef-rice mixture. Cover skillet and heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until cheese softens.
