Camping Trips are just around the corner

I see a lot of people starting to gear up for camping trips, I think that after the cold months we're all itching to get out there and enjoy warm weather and fresh air.

To get us all into the Camping Mood, I'm sharing a great recipe that I'm sure you'll all enjoy.

Camping Sausage-Potato Dinner


1 pkg. (32 ox) frozen Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien

1 pkg (16 ox.) small fully-cooked smoked sausage links

3/4 cup ranch salad dressing

1 1/4 cups Kraft Shredded Cheddar & Monterey

3 green onions, sliced


Preheat grill. Lightly coat four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy foil with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In large bowl combine potatoes, sausage links, and salad dressing. Spoon mixture into centers of foil pieces. Bring up opposite edges of foil and seal with double fold. Fold remaining edges together to completely enclose, leaving space for steam to build.

Place foil packets on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender, turning several times. Carefully open packets. Sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Loosely close packets.

Let stand about 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

  1. Oh my goodness, you do camp cooking too! I love cooking over an open fire. We took some children out camping last winter and taught them how to make pineapple upsidedown cake in a camp oven and an Aussie classic - 'damper', a type of bread.
