I am looking for simple, frugal meal ideas that are easy to make in a camper or over open fire. Thanks!

Spread two slices of bread with margarine, place margarine side down in heated pan. Add slice of swiss cheese or other favorite cheese and lunch meat. Put second slice of bread margarine side up and heat like grilled cheese sandwiches. These are very good, easy and tasty. A bit of a change from regular grilled cheese.
My husband has done much campfire cooking with the Boy Scouts. He also teaches outdoor dutch oven cooking. One of his go to's for the "silver knight" or foil meals is the Reynolds Aluminum site. They have many recipes. You can pretty much do anything in the foil meals. Just remember to cut everything up about the same size, or keep in mind what cooks faster than other things and cut up accordingly. As much prep you can do at home, the better.
For breakfast, you can scramble some eggs in a heavy duty ziplock bag at home. Make sure you season the eggs. Then just drop it into some boiling water for a few minutes. When you take the bag out of the water just squeeze it a few times to break it up. Then eat the eggs on burrito shells. Less cleanup.
My favorite breakfast is our 'Mama's Delight', bake potatoes before you leave home, cook sausage in a large skillet, drain, add chopped onions, chiles, your choice, add diced potatoes to the skillet, brown. Add # of eggs for family, stir to scramble, add cheese on top, season to taste. Yummy with salsa!
