3 Recipes for Outdoor Entertainment - Cozy Furniture

Barbecue Burgers

Ingredients (for 1 serving):

  • cooking spray
  • 1 quarter pound beef
  • 2 tbsp of your favorite brand of barbeque sauce
  • a hamburger bun
  • Optional: your preferred condiments, including lettuce, tomato, onion, etc.
  • Salt and Pepper

This exceedingly simple lunch staple uses barbeque sauce to improve upon any potential culinary shortcomings associated with open-fire cooking. To start, build a cooking fire, let it burn down to hot coals, and place a small grill grate or frying pan on top. Mix a tablespoon of barbeque sauce into your ground beef, and form it into a patty (incorporating the sauce with the raw burger imparts flavor and helps the patty stick together when flipped). When formed, place the patties on the pan or grate, flipping once every 4-5 minutes until the meat’s juices are running clear. Finally, slather on the other tablespoon of barbeque sauce, slap the patty on a bun with your favorite condiments, and enjoy!

Chicken Chili

Ingredients (for one Serving):

  • ½ chicken breast
  • ½ can great northern beans
  • ½ can chicken broth
  • ½ of a small onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper
  • optional: seasonings including oregano, cumin, and chile peppers to taste

Chicken chili, also known as “white chili” to some campers, is a dinnertime classic at many campsites. To make it, get a bed of hot coals smoldering. Then throw a pan on top, coat it with vegetable oil, and put the chicken breast in it. Cover it and let it cook until no pink is left in the breast (or about 165 degrees Fahrenheit). While it’s cooking, combine the broth, beans, onion, and seasonings in a separate pot and stir. When the chicken is done, dice it, toss it in the pot along with everything else, and let it simmer over the coals for 20-30 minutes. With that, your white chili will be piping hot and ready to enjoy.

Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients (for 1 serving):

  • cooking spray
  • 1 medium tortilla
  • 1-2 eggs, depending on preference
  • 2 bacon strips
  • Optional: onion and green pepper
  • Salt and pepper

To make these quick, easy-to-eat breakfast burritos, start by building a bed of hot coals and setting a frying pan on them. Give the pan a shot of cooking spray, and place the bacon strips on it. While the pork’s sizzling, use a mixing bowl to whip the eggs and optional chopped onion or peppers together. When the bacon’s done, set it aside on a couple of paper towels and pour your egg mixture in the pan. Stir frequently, as the coals will be hotter than the eggs’ optimum cooking temperature. When they’re finished (it should only be 5-10 minutes), lay the already cooked bacon and fresh eggs in the center of your tortilla, salt and pepper to taste, and roll it on up.
