Thumbs up Camp Foods

I'm having breakfast right now .... hash browns in particular. I just thought I'd point out a good product to pack away in our trailers. Its called "Golden Grill Hashbrown Potatoes" and is sold by Costco. For around $6.00 you get 8 cartons of dehydrated shredded potatoes in what looks like a pint sized milk carton. Each carton provides enough hashbrowns for at least 2 people (carton claims enough for 7 people ... naaaaa I likes me hashbrowns). What I like is that first of all: they taste good, price is pretty inexpensive, no refer required - long term storage, and small durable packages that can be easily stored. Perfect for our trailers.

Bon Appetite!

Tom

Breakfast, at noon. Must be a slow work day, Tom.

When I was in high school the restaurant I cooked at used these type hash browns, and rehydrated were always a favourite as you could fry them nice and crispy. Not sure if Costco here has them, but we will look.

Can you still get the Salt and Pepper Pistachios at Costco in the US.

We always have some of them around the house - simple to make, inexpensive and tasty. The hash browns will be part of the menu selection when we are camping.

When I was a kid many, many years ago, our family always took canned items along because we camped in tents or tent campers, no refrigerator. One of my favorites was DAK brand canned bacon. It was not appealing right out of the can but once fried up, very good. Unfortunately, I have not seen DAK canned bacon in years - just their hams which I do not like. There is a Yoder's canned bacon on the market but I have never tried it.

Lucky you guys. They had them here, but haven't carried them in a few years. Tom left me most of a bag at the 2016 rally, and we picked up 3 bags when at the Fall NOG last year, but now I must wait until my next trip south.

I believe this is something particular to Apple, is it not? Maybe if you view in an editor first, rotate it, save, and then post it might work out fine.

2X on the Golden Grill Hashbrown potatoes. I don't shop at Costco, but I believe these are the ones they sell. In any case, I've tried a couple different brands and these were the best. I get them from eBay .

I'll eat the shredded potatoes, if I have to , but my buddy and I always have cans of whole or sliced potatoes on hand to fry up in bacon grease.

Hopefully you have enough bacon grease leftover to dip your toast in. Double yum.

None of this dehydrated shredded stuff for me. I boil my real potatoes, mash them and then pan fry until golden brown. Yummy, especially with lots of ketchup.

Although I just pointed the post out to my wife who promptly said that they'd be really convenient for the trailer and added them to her camping list of foods. Oh well, I'll probably like them as much as fried mashed potatoes. If not, I'll just add more ketchup. My solution for making almost anything taste better.

A current product which might be considered an alternative is Maple Leaf Ready Crisp Bacon, or an equivalent of another brand. It's lighter than canned would be, but still requires no refrigeration (until it is opened) and is very quick to heat up (you don't need to really cook it).

You had me salivating up to the point you mentioned ketchup, then I threw up a little bit in the back of my throat. I love fried mashed potatoes, fried in butter or bacon grease to a golden brown. A bit of pepper, but that's it.
