I know many long distace hikers use prepared food ie. lipton/knoors noodles & rice or FD foods. What are your favorite homemade creations? Or good websites for trail food.

hot sausages, red and green peppers cut in strips, fresh onion sliced, oil; cook peppers and onions in oil and set aside when limp; cook sausages until done; add back pepper and onion to heat thru; serve on favorite roll, tortilla, whatever. we cook a 6-pack of sausage and save 2 and extra peppers and onions for omelets in the morning

using a small camp grill, toss on ribeyes or new york strips, brown lightly over campfire while sipping single malt scotch or bourbon of choice, serve with instant potatoes and red wine. freeze steaks at home and they will be ready for cooking second night out.

You know those little plastic tubs of cream cheese? And those foil packs of smoked salmon? This is for early after resupply, doesn't have to be the first night out but, depending on the temperature, no longer than the 3rd night.

Spoon as much of the cream cheese as will survive the spooning step into a pot; stir and heat just a tad to soften; dump in the salmon oil and all; cayenne, garlic and onion powder at this point would be great if you got them; stir to combine and break the fish apart. Heat a tad more if you need to. Spoon over crackers or into a tortilla.

I've seen chive flavored cream cheese tubs, those would probably be even better. Haven't tried that yet though.

I think another key to cooking on the trail, is taking those liptons and prepared stuff, and adding a little something to it, to make it better, like dried veggies, or packet of texas pete
my recent new fav i got from whiteblaze, packet or two of peanut butter (depending on size of packet) few packs of soy sauce, and garlic powder added to ramen noodles (minus the seasoning packet)
