Potato Surprise

Here’s a surprise. This yummy recipe comes from Neal and Marian's very thin book of camping delights and doesn’t even involve the use of a can opener.

One or two packages of Idahoan Mashed Potatoes (the kind that come in a plastic cup like instant soup) depending on how hungry you are. They come in flavors: Four Cheese, Butter and Herb, and Roasted Garlic.

Follow the directions on the package, but toss in some Little Smokies, or some other cooked meat into the boiling water to heat before adding it to the potatoes. Again the quantity depends on your appetite.

As a side dish a sliced Roma tomato (they survive the roughest roads), or, in true Johns’ tradition, a can of cold fruit or vegetables make this a simple and surprisingly good camping meal.
