Hi Everyone! It's been awhile since I posted a question, I need a little help. We will be spending a fair amount of weekends this summer at the motocross track. I am running out of ideas for food. We have a toy hauler but I am trying to not use the kitchen inside. We have an outdoor cooktop, small grill, and griddle to work with. Can you please suggest some kid friendly recipes or ideas to help out please. Need all three meals and snacks. Also stuff I can prep at home is awesome! Thanks! I will be popping on and off today due to the kiddos.

Tasty ham and potato patties with green onion and Dijon mustard are rolled into panko bread crumbs and fried until golden brown. The delicious little cakes are a great way to use up post-holiday leftovers.

I cook on the grill a lot. Everything from quesadillas, stuffed shells, cabbage rolls to even meatloaf if you want to expend the gas(sometimes necessary in the summer). I also do burritos on the grill with whatever filling and then serve "wet" style with some enchilada sauce.

Thanks Linda awesome ideas! I need to get out of the box. I feel like we are stuck on hot dogs and burgers and sandwiches right now and it's getting old fast. At least to me, the boys would eat the same thing everyday.

Sanzoe I just wanted to stop by and say it is nice to "see" you again. I don't have any ideas for you but when we lost power during the last hurricane, we cooked frozen pizza on the grill. I have seen recipes for homemade pizza too. The pizza tasted better than in the oven. We also heated soup on the grill. I just stuck my pan right on there. I scrambled eggs but didn't really like the smoky taste.

Thanks icemama it's nice to see you also! Thanks for the ideas! I do have pizza on the menu for this weekend. We have a one burner cook top for outside so we do the eggs and soup.

Not being familiar with motocross tracks in Minnesota, the mx tracks here in the high desert of California the pit areas can be quite dusty making it difficult to cook outside. If you have access to electrical power/generator maybe bbq pork for sandwiches. You never know when the dirt bike riders are going to be hungry making slow cooker foods always available.

Thanks bd! We are lucky because we have grass all around the tracks. My 5 year old races so we are still on the pee wee tracks. Perfect recipe the crock pot might need to become a staple item this summer!

If you make them small enough you can use the hotdog buns for subs.

One of my favorite recipes and great idea on the subs! This is something everyone will enjoy. Yeah!

Tacos are easy. You can cut everything up ahead of time. Then, what I do is warm the meat on the grill in an old aluminun bread pan. Or even disposable would work. You can even grill the tortillas if you like, or warm hard corn tortillas in foil on the grill.

I've also cooked lasagna and manicotti on the grill.

Thanks superfox! We did tacos in a bag a couple of weeks ago and the kids loved them. When I do them again I will have to make more since a few kids roamed over to join us.

When we go camping I make BBQ chicken the first night. I cook the chicken peices (I like thighs) in the oven without sauce (just salt and pepper). After it has cooled I put it in a ziplock bag and then pour the BBQ sauce on it. Refrigerate overnight. At the campsite I just put it on the grill to heat through and brown/ caramalize the BBQ sauce. Serve with a salad. You could also bake potatoes the night before and heat them on the grill the same time as the chicken.

Thank you Karen, the barbecue chicken is a great idea. I do a lot of foil packets with potatoes a lot.

I know that there is some day at the mx track that there is leftover pizza. This would be good for breakfast.

Texas-style pulled pork simmers in a tangy chili-seasoned barbecue sauce with plenty of onion, then pulled into tender shreds to serve on a buttered, toasted bun.

We love this pulled pork. So easy to make in the slow cooker. Freezes well. You could make ahead, and store in your cooler.

http://allrecipes.com/personalrecipe/62549907/slow-roasted-beef-for-sandwiches/detail.aspx Make this fool proof method of eye of round up ahead of time and slice thin for sandwiches. I slice this up and wrap portions in cling wrap and freeze in a Ziploc bag. That way I always have some on hand for sandwiches.
