Chili Hash

For dinner we cooked up what was left of the chili. We did not have enough chili so we decided to make a new dish called Chili Hash. We fried up some hash browns, and up the warmed the chili. We then mixed in the hash browns and some cheese with the chili. The hash browns are being fried and the chili reheated.

Before serving the Chili Hash, we added more cheese to the top and chips for some crunch. It was really tasty and good way to use up some chili.

Deer Camp Frozen Pizza?

Yep, we made Frozen Pizza’s, with no oven, on the griddle. A great snack to cook up between card games.

We bought a baking cooling rack and a disposable aluminum baking pan. We placed the cooling rack on the griddle, the pizza on the cooling rack, and the baking pan over the pizza/cooling rack. This created a small oven.

The pizza took about 25 minutes to cook and we checked it every 5 minutes. It turned out very good. Next time we would adjust the burner between Medium and Low.
Deer Camp sausage egg casserole

Sausage Egg Casserole

Sausage egg casserole is great dish to make at home and reheat. Reheat it slowly, covered, and on low heat on the griddle. Serve it with some hash browns and you have a great breakfast.

Open-Faced Mushroom Cheese Omelet

First, fry up the mushrooms until they are brown. Then add the scrambled eggs to the mushrooms. Plan on using 4-5 eggs per person, and depending on the size of the pan/griddle you may have to make more then one batch. After the eggs have set, add some shredded cheese to the top, cover to melt. Finally, serve with some toast.
