Here are two for starters:

1 large orange per person
1 large or 2 small eggs per orange
2 slices bacon per egg
Cook bacon on grill or in skillet; discard all but about 1/2 teaspoon of grease per egg. Crumble bacon.
Remove top 1/4 from orange with sharp knife. With spoon, being careful not to pierce skin, eat orange from inside, leaving whole rind like bowl. Break eggs and beat lightly with salt and pepper; stir in crumbled bacon and drippings, then pour into orange rinds. Set oranges on grill about 2'' above coals. Set tops back on oranges. Check after about 15 minutes.

No dishes. Good eats.

(for four persons)

1/8 cup each, per person, finely diced celery, green bell pepper, and onion
1/3 tsp salt
1.2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Lea & Perrins
1 small can tomato sauce
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 beaten egg
Mix all ingredients well, divide into 8 thin patties.
Make 4 double-thick pieces of foil 8'' x 12''. Rub inside very lightly with oiled paper towel.
Lay a patty on the foil, then a slice of cheese on the patty, then a slice of tomato on the cheese, then a slice of onion on the tomato. Top with 2nd thin patty and seal edges. Fold foil over, envelope-fashion, sealing one long edge down center. Roll ends to seal, leaving about 1/2'' between edge of patties and edge of packets. Grill seam-side-up for 15 minutes over very hot coals; turn over, grill 15 minutes, remove from heat and rest, seam-side-up, 5 minutes. Open and enjoy.

Dude........... you have some GREAT recipes here. I'm going on a 45-mile canoe trip with my brother over Memorial Weekend on the Illinois River in NE Oklahoma. I'm going to try that orange trick. He is a vegan (not full on) and would like that recipe with the egg beaters stuff..... minus the bacon.

I love eating good on the river!! My motto....... Live like pigs, feast like kings!!

Cake can also be cooked in orange peels. Prepare orange peels the same as above, and just pour about 1/2 full of prepared cake batter. I like just plain white, the peel gives it a slight orange flavor. I know some campers who prefer chocolate fixed this way. Any makes a great camp dessert.

just recently discovered you can do this with "instant" pudding (the orange shell trick instead of a bowl -- try vanilla in orange shells with a drop or two of cinnamon extract sometime.)

eat orange from inside

use small eggs (the grocery store labels them "medium") and big oranges (not clementines).

cut orange in half. scoop meat out of orange with spoon, like so:

Do not put holes in the bottoms of the halves of the rind. If you have a
grapefruit spoon to eat the orange with this will be easier.

The halves of the rind should look like this:
