Two-bag Freezer Bag meals on 03/13/2012 18:44:47 MDT Print View

Sometimes I use two freezer bags for a meal.

EX. "Thanksgiving Dinner"

INGREDIENTS:
1 person protion of StoveTop Stuffing
1/4 cup Craisins
1/2 pouch dry gravy mix
1 foil pouch of chicken
(1 person portion of mashed potatoes can be added)

PREPARATION:
> Bag #1 StoveTop Stuffing & Craisins
Add hot water, seal and insulate

> Bag #2 Gravy and chicken (& mashed potatoes if desired)
Add hot water, seal and insulate

** Alternatively, after stuffing is done and dished out you could make the mashed potatoes in the same bag if you carried them in a sandwich bag. Their "cook" time is minimal.

Sometimes preparing food separately is just more appealing than a single "bag-o-grub".

Oh very much so. I might add that in the case of Thanksgiving On The Trail I use multiple bags - potatoes in one, stuffing in the next, gravy and chicken in another and last but not least, cranberry sauce in a small bag. The meal though serves 3 or more ;-) So it evens out.
