Does anyone have any good food ideas to send with my ice fishing man out with his buddies for the weekend? They will have a stove when they get there.:)

A BIG pot of chile or a tin of Sausage and Peppers.! These are easily reheated out on the ice and warm you up good!
A pack of hand warmers would be a good addition as well.

Here is a recipe for Breakfast Burritos that would work well for them. I keep some in the freezer all the time. They are easy to make, and keep very well if you wrap each one in foil. I buy the foil sandwich squares and wrap mine.



Great for that run in the morning breakfast. You can also take frozen burritos with you when going camping. Just place the bag of frozen burritos into the ice chest, and by the time you're ready for breakfast the first morning, the burritos are fully thawed. Then simply reheat them in a large skillet over the campstove or fire grate.

12 eggs, beaten
1 lb bulk sausage, cooked (or crumbled links)

1/2 cup chunky salsa (your choice of heat)
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

24 large flour tortillas (you can also use whole wheat)

Optional Ingredients
1 green pepper, finely diced
6 potatoes, shredded and fried until cooked through (or use hashbrowns)
jalapeno, slices
1 can chopped green chilies
1-2 clove garlic, finely minced
1 onion, finely diced
1 tomato, peeled and chopped
2 green onions, sliced with tops


1. Scramble eggs in large skillet until done; stir in cooked sausage and any optional
ingredients you choose. Set aside the salsa and shredded cheese.
2. Warm each tortilla in microwave 20-30 seconds or until warm and flexible.
3. Place 1/2 cup egg mixture into tortilla; add a little of the shredded cheese and a
spoonful or so of the salsa; roll burrito-style.
4. Wrap each burrito in foil and freeze in single layer on cookie sheet.
5. When fully frozen, place wrapped burritos in large zip-top freezer bags; freeze.
6. TO SERVE: Replace foil with a paper towel and cook in Microwave until heated
through (about 2 min.)
7. Or thaw, then replace foil with a paper towel and cook in microwave until heated
8. You could leave them in the foil, and heat in the oven or a toaster oven, but it takes
a little longer.
Note: You may have to adjust the time.

Before the sun was up, I went out early and prepared my line for a day of ice fishing at our cottage. I love how the snow reflects the blue sky in this photo. The bell and the orange ribbon are aids to let me know if a fish is biting.
