Sunday after church we hurried home to make a skillet dinner on an open fire, for the first time. It was so much fun, before church that morn Steve had added a couple of logs to the fire so it would still be going when we got home.
I was nervous about burning it or it not being hot enough, etc. But we had purchased a metal grate that sits in your pit and I had it just to the side of the flame and it worked perfect. Here is the recipe we used below. I forgot to add my squash out of the garden but we also added a can of corn at the end, very tasty.
Here is the Recipe:
Cast Iron Skillet Dinner
1 Package Polish Sausage (any kind you like)
3 Sweet Potatoes
3 White Potatoes
1 Large Onion
2 Bell Peppers (1 green/1 red)
2 Medium Yellow Squash
Vegetable oil Directions:Using your favorite skillet, heat oil then add sliced sweet potatoes and begin cooking. Cut other ingredients as listed and add them as you cut. Add sausage last (if precooked) and cook until potatoes are soft. Best when cook on a campfire but works fine on stove.

It was much fun, then that evening I took a piece of foil and cut up white potatoes, squash and onions in chunks, threw them in the foil added a glob of butter and seasonings. rolled it up tight and then I put it in the ashes, left it there for about 1-1/2 hours, the kids and hubby loved it!
