Looking for a new recipe

Dinner, fairly quick cooking over a fire or gas burner, preferably one pot. Not too hearty (NOT stew or chili, for example.) Something lighter or different?

Any ideas?

You buy a bagged Caesar salad or romaine hearts and tear them up yourself.
Grill a chicken breast that's been marinated in Italian dressing, cut it up, drop it on top of the lettuce, add dressing and call it dinner.

Or you can sub prawns for the chicken, quickly sauteed ( about three minutes ) in a dab of butter and splash of olive oil. Use whatever you like to spice the prawns. I use Clubhouse Cajun marinade.

Wipe out the non-stick pan with a paper towel and use it to start a campfire.

Stuffed pork chops is a favorite of mine. I usually use box stuffing cause it's easy. Butterfly the chops. Mix up the stuffing to your liking. I sometimes add applesauce and cut up apples to my stuffing.

Fill the chops and close with a toothpick. Place in a pan or Dutch oven, pour extra stuffing around and cover with pork gravy. If not using an oven or Dutch oven, you may need to flip the chops to cook evenly.

I've done the chops stuffed on the grill and the extra stuffing in a pot on the side too.

Cook a bunch of rice before you head out put it in bags and freeze it. Bring soy sauce and your favorite ingredients/meats. I lean towards veggies. Fried rice is quick, easy, lite, yummy, and forgiving. I use lots of finely chopped carrots, celery for crunch, broccoli, soy sauce, sometimes an egg, chicken, pork, or beef.

Fried rice might be a good idea. Someone else is making salad so that's out, and I don't like pork chops. Oh, but the prawns reminds me of a good meal I had once, if I can remember what else was in it. They sauteed the prawns in a honey sauce and did something... lol, I guess that's the only part I remember.

You didn't say it was for a pot luck.

As a minister's kid, I had my fill of pot luck suppers so I have nothing to offer.
Can't even pray for you.

Not a potluck, just a few of us camping together. Sort of potluck in that one person wanted salad so is bringing it. I decided to make Reubens. Trader Joes has some delicious corned beef (Precooked) and that will be easy and quick and filling.

PS, Carl, don't worry about the meal, but pray for low pollen counts! Otherwise I may not know or care what I'm eating.

I always make this taco/burrito/you name it thing when we group camp. I don't know what to call it since it can be served on taco shells, wraps, or our preference, those crispy flat corn tortillas.

In an iron skillet, brown a couple pounds of ground beef, drain grease, add a can of refried beans and a jar of salsa.

Just before serving cover the whole top with shredded cheese.

Put the skillet on the picnic table with bowls of lettuce, chopped tomatoes/onions/etc, and whatever else you might want and let folks build their own.

It'll stay hot quite awhile in the skillet and makes a pretty good cold dip even if it does cool down!

Serves up to eight hungry people and simple enough to easily multiply for bigger crowds.

Chicken and dumplings using a precooked chicken and refrigerated rolls. Fast and very good.

One of our camp favorites Sauteed Mushrooms and sweet onions. Butter, sweet onions, button cap mushrooms, ground sea salt and pepper. Large pan 1/4 stick butter start cooking the onions they take the longest when onions start to turn clear add mushrooms and more butter. Turn and stir while cooking until the mushrooms cook down. I usually use 1 medium onion to 2 baskets of mushrooms. cut the mushrooms in half and slice the onion 3/8 thick and then quartered.
Warning when done put your mushrooms on your plate first before submitting to the potluck they go fast.
Next time you go camping you will need a bigger pan and more ingredients.
it gets kinda out of hand when the pan gets around 18 inches and you still run out.
another variation start frying with a couple pieces of bacon chopped up and when mostly done start the butter an onions.

The taco dish sounds great but one of the other people is doing burritos on her night. The mushrooms sound great, too! Dumplings I think are too slow to cook without a dutch oven. (Though they also sound great.) (Is it lunchtime yet?)

Hey, Bobby!

Here's my "Italian" version of the taco dish:

Small meatballs heated in spaghetti sauce with grated parmesan on top. (Homemade meatballs are easy but time consuming... do NOT hesitate to buy a bag at Costco )

The skillet goes on the table next to hard rolls of some kind that have been hollowed out just enough to make room for a meatball or two and a dollop of sauce. This one will go a long way due to the "fill factor" of the bread!

The hollowing out can be skipped if one's in a hurry, but it does make for a nice presentation.

We can take what we call a taco salad that always becomes an empty bowl.
Basically a large bowl of salad with Ranch Style beans (well drained) which can be prepared ahead of time. Then just before serving add Fritos and Catalina Dressing.
Doesn't seem to matter what the theme is. And then there's the Potato Salad & Deviled Eggs. Might be risky in hot weather.
