This was soooooo delicious! I did add some baby portabello mushrooms and a can of whole tomatoes. I was told this would have to become a staple for every camping trip. So, so good. Thanks!

We had this on our Scout camp in NSW Australia and it was fantastic, also take note our scouts prepared their own with minimal supervision and enjoyed it so much even the vegetables where all gone.
By the way we had corn on the cob as our starter (in Aust. known as an entree, the main meal is called a main here)

Put hard salami on your camp grocery list. It's yummy in sandwiches, perfect as part of a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast and by frying a piece of the salami in your pan before cooking you'll harvest some grease to stir-fry veggies or keep eggs from sticking. No need for butter!
