We both love camp cooking and coming up with new and different things to eat, so while wild camping almost every night we improved our chef skills and quickly learned what food was delicious and easy to make. Here is our wild camping menu.
Appetizer: Vegetable Stir Fry À la Katie
Ingredients: Carrots, green peppers, red peppers, eggplant, and onions.
Directions: Combine a variety of local vegetables chopped up and fry with a dab of butter over an open cooker with seasoning for taste. Add a splash of water during cooking if needed.
Main Course: Sucuk Scramble
Ingredients: Turkish Spicy Sausage (Sucuk), 6 Eggs, Salt & Pepper.
Directions: Cut the sucuk into bite sized pieces mix in a pot with six eggs. Mix and scramble to perfection. Add salt & pepper for desired final taste.
Main Course: Egg Kebabs
Ingredients: Ekmek (bread), sucuk, spreads, cheese, salt & pepper, sauces.
Directions: Start with 6 eggs mixed with finely chopped peppers and onions. Carefully cook the eggs to form perfect sized omelets. Place the omlet on the Ekmek and add sucuk (spicy sausage) and cheese. Top with spicy ketchup and salt & pepper to taste.
After Meal Snack
We often followed up to Sucuk Scramble or Egg Kebabs with fresh bread and a choice of spreads and cheese.
- Haydari Spread: thick dip and spread made from strained yoghurt which is called suzme in Turkish.
- Kahvaltilik Spreads: thick spread made with tomoatos, peppers, and spices. Can be spicy.
- Cheese: Fetta, mozzarella, and many other Turkish favorites
Dessert & Bed Time Snack
Follow your meals down with half kilogram of baklava from the local pasticceria for as little as $3 USD. If you are still hungry for a late night sugar infusion 3 or 4 bags of gummies from any small shop, or get stuck into Locum (Turkish Delight).
