Favorite Meal on the Ice

While preparing for this weekend of being on the lake during the day. A thought crossed my mind while gathering all of my various cooking/food items. What's your favorite meal you like to prepare on the ice? If you would like, please provide a list of ingredients or recipe describing preparation details.

I'll start. wink

Bucks Breakfast (Mac & Cheese w/ Spam cubes) Serves 2

You will need:

1 box of Mac n' Cheese (I prefer Kraft Spongebob's but whatever float's your boat)

-1 tin of Spam

-2 oz. milk

-1.5 tbsp. butter

-.5 Gallons of H20

-Salt & Pepper

-Cooking pot

-Ice Skimmer or Strainer

-A spoon or two

Directions:

1. Bring H20 to boil

2. Add noodles

3. Salt to your liking

4. Allow to cook 6-8 minutes depending on how you like your noodles

5. Open spam tin and cube up your spam.

6. Strain noodles. I use my skimmer because it's one less thing to pack and carry.

7. Add 1.5 Tbsp. butter and stir.

8. Dump Cheesey powder mix in and continue stirring.

9. Begin adding milk to your desired creaminess. I think a little more milk is nice to prevent the meal from getting that mac and cheese layer of glaze before your finished.

9. Throw cubed spam into the dish and continue stirring, making sure the spam gets a little warmed up and fully coated with that mystery cheesey goodness.

10. Grab a spoon and enjoy your hard work.

Well there is always shore lunch. That's always popular.

I also like to bring the grill out and cook beer-brats and burgers.

I do the same as bog, call em hobo meals, start with 2 layers of tinfoil, add hash browns or tater tots, already browned burger, or chicken, the frozen vegies with the cheezy chunks in them, onions, etc. and throw in a pad of butter and seasoning.

you could use anything in these, leftovers? I usualy make a bunch at one time and freeze them then take out the night before to thaw some.

I cook over the big buddy, I use a long jaw spreader, open it up and put the 2 ends under one of the top wires in the protector and over the follwing one so it sticks straight out, then set it on top, flip once in a while, works great. just remember to bring a fork.

I usually just bring some sandwiches and something to drink. I find that I get too into fishing most of the time and don't remember to eat anyway.

Wendy's double stacks, yeah I know people are wondering. When they get cold I take my ice scooper and hang it above the sunflower heater and throw the burger on and its hot in 5 minutes or less.

canned venison. You have to be careful that it doesn't freeze and break the jar but when you are ready to eat you can just dump the whole thing in a pot or pan and warm it up or i've even heated it in a metal coffee can over the Mr. Heater. maybe some saltine crackers or potato chips to go with it. Oh, and beer with tomato juice in it.

When fishing from a portable I really only make sandwiches and take some snacks along, but for the sleepers I like to make before hand some home made soups/stews/spaghetti sauce/chilly (easy to freeze n keep and easy to reheat, ahh the joys of a portable stove.)I also like to make my own snacks like honey joys I'm not sure if these are an Australian thing but I grew up on them there, they seem to be a hit for the people I have made em for here too and kids love em soooo easy to make.

Here's the recipe.

I will try and keep my Aussie terms to a minimum.

you will need.

1 stick of butter

1/3 cup of sugar ( I like to use raw or natural but any is fine)

1 big tablespoon of honey

4 cups of cornflakes

Make sure you use a big enough pot to hold ALL ingredients

Melt butter, sugar and honey in pot till frothy (keep an eye on it at all times stiring on and off) take off heat.

Add cornflakes and carefully stir them in till they are all coated with honey mix.

while still warm spoon mix into patty pans (um tring to think of what they are called here the paper cup cake things)

For a more crunchier treat you can bake in oven preheated to 300 for 10 mins or for a slightly crunchy treat leave to cool on its own which is what I usually do. Enjoy!

great snack anytime and also big hit at kids birthday parties.

LOL....fishchicka...I like your little thing at the bottom of your message...fish play games too! Very funny.

I'm definitely going to try your recipe.

I have a dessert that is always a hit....takes a little work and a dutch oven...but it's worth it!

You need:

6 or so granny smith apples

Couple sticks of real butter

1 cup of sugar

4 packages of crossants

cinamon sugar

1 can of mountain dew

Heat up your coals for your dutch oven. Melt butter, and stir in 1 cup of sugar....heat to a boil while constantly stirring. Let cool...mix occassionally.

Peel your apples..then slice them up into 1/8ths. Take croissants and wrap 1 apple slice per croissant triangle. Wrap and place in dutch oven. Wrap up all of your apples in the croissants until the croissants are gone. If you have leftover apple slices...dice them and throw them in too. Pour melted butter/sugar glaze over crossants. Leave a little glaze for later smile Then pour 1 can of mountain dew over apples...try to NOT wash off the glaze. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over crossants. Cover dutch oven with lid and place coals on top. Whenever the croissants are golden brown...they are DONE! Remove lid and pour the rest of the glaze on......MELT IN YOUR MOUTH GOOD!

You won't find this recipe in any health cook books! smile

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
