Tailgating Recipe and Tips of the Week
One Pan Breakfast
1 package shredded has hash browns (if using boxed, re-hydrate with water and drain)
Sausage (bulk, fried and crumbled) or Chopped ham or Crumbled fried bacon
One small onion chopped (or 1 tables. dried onion)
One garlic clove (or garlic powder or salt)
1 8 oz package grated cheese (your favorite)
6 Eggs beaten well
PAM spray or vegetable oil
Spray bottom of pan, put hash browns on bottom, place meat choice on top of hash browns, mix onion, garlic with eggs, and pour over hash browns and meat mix.
Top with cheese and bake 30 minutes or brown on stove top, cooking potatoes and meat first, then add egg mixture, turn once and when done add cheese until melted.
Great served with homemade salsa or chili.
FROM RACEMAMA: I would cook the sausage at home.
A piece of rope, a bungee cord and a tie strap can save
whatever catastrophe that duct tape can't
To prevent batteries from wearing down if your flashlight is accidentally nudged on in your pack, take one battery out and replace it upside down. (Remember to switch it back at nightfall, dummy.)
An effective way to repel mosquitoes is to rub the inside of an orange peel on your face, hands, legs and arms.
A bar of soap rubbed along the length of a tent or sleeping bag zipper will make that zipper slide much more effectively.
Firm-fleshed fruit, such as oranges, pack better than soft ones (bananas, pears).
Rolled-up tortillas make sturdier sandwiches than bread.
Freeze juice in a reusable plastic juice container. It will act as a freezer pack and is less wasteful than using individual juice boxes. Powdered drink crystals are easier to pack than pop.
Pack vegetable oil to use for grilling in a small pump spray bottle; carry in a re-sealable plastic bag.
Pre-chop veggies at home (night before trip) & store them in zip lock bags. Carrots and onions pack well and stay fresh for adding to dehydrated mixes and side dishes. I chop ahead of time.
Make one large cube of ice at home (in an old milk container or plastic container such as a 2 litre pop bottle. We have also used the small hard sided cooler and a cake pan. Take out of freezer, let it sit till it loosens and you have a nice block). Block ice last longer than crushed.
Grate cheese ahead of time or buy pre-grated packages.
Pre-cook any sauces & meat mixes. Then freeze...keeps everything else colder longer
Get Pringles canned potato chips - so the chips won't get crushed. We always bring "boxed snacks"
Prepackaged bag 'o salad is a great way to get your fresh lettuce.
Buy pancake batter that mixes with water only (no eggs or milk needed).
RACEMAMA TIP: When you put the batter on the griddle add cooked, crumbled bacon or sausage, cubed ham or blueberries.
