Jetboil Mac & Cheese
Everyone needs a little comfort food – even on the trail. Here's a quick, light and easy way to enjoy your macaroni & cheese. It's one of Michael Shearer's faves!
1 box of Mac and Cheese
For one serving, boil 2 cups of water and add 2 packages of noodles. Keep an eye on the noodles & stir often so they don't stick, allowing them to simmer until soft. Put your Jetboil lid on and drain some of the water (but not all – you'll need some to make the sauce). Add cheese packets and stir. Mmmmmm!
We're not sure where the name comes from, but this sure is a tasty way to spice up your next batch of Ramen! Thanks to Rick Ashworth for sharing.
1 package Ramen noodles
1 cup crushed Dorito chips
1 thinly sliced Slim Jim beef stick
Add all contents to Ziplock bag at home. At camp, add 2 cups of boiling water, let sit for 10 minutes and enjoy!
No lightweight food guide would be complete without a rousing cheer for these noodles. Ramen is cheap, calorie-packed, fast-cooking, and uncannily satisfying. Even if you don't make any other hot food, you can feel satisfied that with Jetboil you have the world's fastest Ramen maker, and that's more than enough to make us happy.
2 cups water
one pkg Ramen noodles
Boil water, turn heat way down, add Ramen noodles and mystery spice packet. Stir. Turn off heat, cover, and let sit for five minutes.
Egg Drop Ramen
This simple recipe adds richness and flavor to an old favorite. If you're timid about carrying eggs in your pack, buy a plastic two- or six-egg holder from your outdoor shop, or pack them in a cut-down section of the original carton, wrapped with a rubber band and stored in a zip lock just in case. Eggs keep at room temp for several days.
2 cups water
1 pkg Ramen noodles
Boil water, turn heat way down, add Ramen noodles, spice packet, and egg. Stir to create eggy, filamentous wonder. Turn off heat, cover, and let sit for five minutes.
Now that you're a Jetboil owner, you've got a great excuse for quick hot lunches on the trail. Hot soup is the very definition of instant gratification. There's plenty to choose from at your grocery store. It's also remarkable what you can do with a bouillon cube (or Ramen noodles) and one or two fresh ingredients or spices.
1-2 cups water
1-2 chicken, beef, or veggie bouillon cubes
1 package of Ramen noodles with flavor packet
chopped onion or scallion
chopped up beef jerky
can of shrimp or clams
Put water, bouillon cube(s), and add-in(s) into cooking cup. Turn on heat, bring to boil, and turn off. Most excellent lunch.
Jet Soup with Dumplings
Fresh bread on the trail is virtually unheard of, but dumplings are an easy and tasty substitute which takes your soup to new levels.
1/2 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup powdered milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup water
Pre-mix the dry ingredients before your trip in a one quart zip lock bag. On the trail, add cold water to the bag, zip it shut, and knead it until you get a doughy consistency. You might have to add a little more water. Set this aside and make your soup, then turn off the heat. Spoon out penny-sized chunks of dough into the hot soup. Turn on the heat again, and simmer at lowest possible heat for a couple minutes while stirring continuously. Turn off heat and chow down.
