What are your guy's favorite campfire meals? My favorites are the classic cooking iron fruit pies (fruit filling between two slices of bread cooked with a square cooking iron) and what we refer to as hobo hotdish (potato slices, carrot chips, ground beef, and onion, seasoned with salt, pepper, and butter; cooked in an aluminum foil pocket on hot coals until the potatoes are soft.

My wife's favorite is breakfast burritos cooked over the fire in a rectangular double iron.

If you prefer cooking in the fire, I'd recommend a dutch oven.
ANYTHING (well... practically anything) tastes wonderful cooked in a dutch oven on a campfire.
Google "campfire cast iron dutch oven recipes" and you will be in hog heaven?..

We eat simple food when we camp.  Some of our favorites are:
1) fried hamburger patties in mushroom gravy served with mashed potatoes.
2) soup made with a hamburger patty (fried and up into 1/2" cubes, add a can of mixed veggies and thicken with corn starch, add a bit of bulion. 
3)  pre-cooked sliced roast beef with mushroom gravy over mashed potatoes
4)  tacos
5)  grilled cheese w/tomato soup
6) cream of chicken soup with rice
7) fried (broken up) hamburger with cream of mushroom soup over mashed potatoes
Anything simple and fast with minimal cleanup.  I will not, however,  eat Dinty Moore stew, that stuff is nasty.

Interested in hearing replies for this as well! Easy cooking and cleanup are great for us as well. We like eating simple, but I would like to change things up a bit so we aren?t always eating the same things. And I love cooking over the campfire.

Good post

Pork tenderloin marinate in equal parts pure maple syrup and Dijon mustard overnight. Grill 10 minutes per side. (Assuming 400 degree heat) a fan fav!
Corn on cob

For anyone that uses Old Bay, I recommend you try Wye River Original Red seasoning in place of the Old Bay sometime. Not affiliated, I just like Wye River.
