Easy Trail Recipes: Thanksgiving Dinner


For those of you who like to get outside for the Thanksgiving holiday, or thru hikers who just want something savory and easy on trail, try this one!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 box instant stuffing (I like the cornbread flavor)
  • 1/3 bag instant potatoes (I like roasted garlic flavor)
  • 1/3 packet powdered gravy packet (I like turkey gravy)
  • 1 box (1 oz.) Craisins
  • 1 (4.5 oz) can or foil pack chicken or turkey (or you could use the fresh or frozen chicken strips or 2-4 oz. deli turkey)
  • 1 T. Olive or vegetable oil (optional)

 

At Home/In Hotel Preparation

Place stuffing, potatoes, gravy, and Craisins in a freezer ziplock.

On-Trail Preparation

Add very hot water to ziplock so that it barely covers the dry ingredients. About 1 1/4 cups. Let sit 1 minute. If you carry oil, add about 1 tablespoon to add flavor and about 100 calories. Add chicken/turkey.
