Friday Foods – Camp Perogies

Potato-filled perogies are a hearty meal after a long day on your feet.  This recipe twist from Fork in the Trail lets you enjoy this fall favorite from the comfort of your campsite. 

Camp Perogies

Makes 2-3 servings

6 lasagna noodles

14-ounce package instant mashed

6 slices precooked bacon (optional)

2 teaspoons dried chives

Nonfat powdered milk (if the potatoes require milk)

2 tablespoons sour cream powder (optional)

1-inch x 2-inch x 3-inch block old cheddar cheese

At Home

Break the lasagna noodles into large pieces. Keep the potatoes and optional bacon in their packaging. Place the potatoes, bacon, and broken noodles into a large ziplock freezer bag. Package dried chives in a small piece of plastic wrap and place it in the bag with the other items. If powdered milk is required, put it in a small bag. If you are taking sour cream powder, put it in a small bag as well. Put these bags in the bag with the other ingredients. Wrap the mozzarella cheese.

At Camp

Add boiling water to the chives in a Nalgene bottle or cup and allow to rehydrate for 5 minutes. Drain them and set aside. Chop up the bacon, warm it in a frying pan, and then set it aside. Cook the lasagna noodles in boiling water until they are tender and set them aside. Cut up the cheese and set it aside. If you’re using sour cream powder, mix it with the potato flakes. Boil water for the potatoes. Add the potato flakes and stir, adding powdered milk if the potatoes require it. Add the chives, bacon, noodles, and cheese. Stir over low heat until the cheese melts.
