While readying for a recent camping trip, my co-camper mentioned that she was precooking. Precooking? We had already determined the daily menus, but I had never done (or ever even thought of) precooking before. Sausage, bacon, taco meat - all done. Heat lightly over the fire (or stove) and voila! We didn't precook anything like burgers or dogs (but they're done quickly anyway). Non-cooking time savers: Eggs were pre-scrambled and zip-locked. Cheese, lettuce, pickles, and tomatoes were pre-shredded, chopped and/or sliced. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. Full, hot breakfasts were ready before the coffee was. Lunches and dinners were whipped up before anyone could complain about how they were starving. Clean up was much easier than it's ever been. It eliminated the need for some of my camp cookware and utensils, which equaled a streamlined kitchen area. From a camp cook's perspective; it was awesome!
