Check back for more posts over the summer. This year we will be cottaging more than camping so expect to see some more bbq recipes! Also I will be trying to update older posts with photos.

Mushroom Hobo Pack

This is so simple it hardly deserves a recipe but I am working on compiling a solid list of good foil packs and mushrooms are one of our favorites.
What you need

button mushrooms, halved or quartered
a few dollups vegan butter or margarine or 1-2 TBSP olive oil
salt and pepper
1 tsp fresh thyme or rosemary, chopped or in tact

Cooking method

Over campfire or bbq, resting on a grill preferably


1. Prepare your foil pack by laying out your foil on a flat surface

2. On the foil spread out your mushrooms, try to evenly distribute dollups of butter, salt, pepper and herbs.


3. Seal up your foil pack

4. Cook over the fire on a grill until done.


5. Open foil pack carefully to avoid burning. 

Roasted Red Peppers and Sausages 2.0

This is a basic alternate method to prepare the Roasted Red Pepper and Sausages recipe I posted a while back here. In this version that we made on the bbq at the cottage we carefully cut and seeded the peppers, keeping them in one piece. 

We then pre-grilled the peppers and sausages. 

After that we wrapped the peppers around the sausages, securing with toothpicks and gave them a few additional minutes on the bbq to finish up. Remove the toothpicks before eating.

They were delicious!

If you haven't heard there is a new vegan sausage on the market. The brand is called Field Roast and they make very tasty, soy free, vegan grain meats including sausages, franks, roasts and slices. Check them out.
