There's a lot more available than hot dogs and marshmallows when planning your camping meals.  I went on a scout camp out this weekend and decided to show the boys some very easy and delicious recipes that work great with limited kitchen/cooking supplies. The boys went crazy for this dish.  They absolutely loved it and never dreamed of eating something like it on a camp out.  It was really fun teaching them the different steps and techniques.  A couple even asked for the recipe so they could go home and cook it for their families.
