Potatoes are one of the staples in my outdoor adventure pantry. I figure with enough potatoes and eggs, I’ll never starve! This is one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes in camp.
- 2-3 large russet potatoes
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 green pepper
- 1 red pepper
- 1 medium yellow onion (Vidalia is delicious)
- 3 T. Crisco (this amount will need to be adjusted to your liking)
- Salt & pepper to taste
Wash and peel potatoes. Slice into 1/2″ thick coins or chunks. Thinly slice the onion and peppers. Combine and cook with Crisco in large skillet. Use medium heat (on your propane camp stove) for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe also works well with leftover baked potatoes substituted for the raw potatoes. Just cook everything until the potatoes are warmed through and the peppers and onions are tender.
