From fishing to swimming to golfing to tennis, there are so many things you can do at your recreational property this summer at Gleniffer Lake, but it seems according to the resort owners that sitting around a campfire is one of the best. Since so many of our Alberta lake residents enjoy their firepits, we thought it’d be a great idea to get a few recipes for everyone to try out and enjoy.
Catch of the Day
- ¼ cup of onions
- 1 tablespoon of butter, melted
- lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- fresh herb (parsley or cilantro)
1. Mix the butter with lemon juice and the above spices to taste (minus the paprika). Place the onions on the tin foil sheet. Place the fish on top and sprinkle with paprika. Wrap the foil in a flat pack.
2. Place on hot coals and scoop some hot coals on top of the packet. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
Campfire Banana Split
- Chocolate chips
- Mini marshmallows or regular marshmallow (cut in half)
1. Slice the banana inside the peel lengthwise and carefully open the banana just wide enough to place the chocolate chips and marshmallows inside the peel with the banana.
2. Spray the tin foil with cooking spray and wrap the banana. Place the foil directly in the coals of a fire and leave in long enough to melt the chips and the marshmallows. Cook for 5 minutes.
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp melted butter or oil
- 2/3 cup of warm water
1. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl (minus the water) and mix until crumbly. Slowly add in the water until the dough begins to soften and keep together.
2. Take a small handful of dough and wrap around a hot dog stick. Cook over the coals for 10-12 minutes and eat with jam, honey or anything else you enjoy!
