Not really much of a recipe, but whenever we get hungry out on the trails we just grab a shovel and throw some frozen pre-cut burgers on it and grill em. Nothin' beats some good shovel burgs after a long day on the trails.
Let your fire burn down to coals. Wrap potatoes and ears of corn in heavy duty foil, and toss them on. Taters take some time, ~30 minutes, to test pull one out and see if it's soft. Corn is faster, maybe 15 minutes. For the steaks brush the ash off the coals and put them on. Yes directly on the fire, no grill, or foil. Turn in five minutes. Remove in another five. There will be very little ash sticking to them and it brushes off.
id be interested in hearing ideas as well on this. ive got a 3 day trail ride/camping trip coming up with the offroad club im in. we're gonna be wheeling in 3 different places across the state so quick receipe ideas with minimal tools would be ideal.
for a tasty treat you can make "mountain pies"
you can buy the long handled griddles that open/close like a clamshell to do this. place a piece of bread on each side of the griddle, fill with whatever filling you want (strawberrys, blackberrys, blueberrys, etc) close the griddle and place in the coals of a fire for roughly 5 minutes turning half way through. also works well for hot lunch meat sandwhiches

First one. Take some "Grands" biskits, flatten them out really well. Next place a slice of cheeze on it then a " Brown & Serve" sassage. Roll it up tight and pinch in the ends. Stick on a hot dog fork and roast over fire until crispy on the outside.
Next one is kinda a camp goulash.
Cut up a very large baker tater and cook in a cast iron skillet until partially done. Add about 3/4 of a tube of "Jimmy Dean" Sage flavored sassage. After it has cooked for a while throw about 3-4 eggs in there. Fresh goose eggs are best. Then toss in a can of spicy chile con carne(no bean).
Large sheet of foil add layers of onions, carrots, sliced potatoes, ground meat, salt, pepper, garlic powder, (anything that sounds interesting. Cook in the coals for minimum 30 minutes. Make sure the meat is fully done.
Don't even need a plate, eat right from the opened packet.
Look on-line for campfire cooking and Boy Scouts, also look for Dutch Oven cooking.
