Cheese rye bread

Rye flour mix

I made this camping, so it was a suck it and see recipe.
Mixed flour, yeast,(not the yeast from pack, Lowan dried yeast) cheese, a bit of butter and water. Mixed and kneaded until it looked good.
After it doubled in size knocked it down put in camp oven and let it rise again. While this was happening I mixed cheese butter a pinch of salt and spread on top.
Once it had doubled in size again baked in choffer, 12 heat beads on the bottom 12 on top. (I did not want to much on top )
Sliced once cool enough, and served with butter.

Cheesymite Scrolls

2 cups self raising flour
30g butter
3/4 cup milk
Grated cheese

Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre, add the milk and mix in using a butter knife. Give it a quick knead to combine everything in the bowl. Roll out into a rectangular shape and reasonably thin. Spread Vegemite over the dough, then cover with grated cheese. Roll up along the long edge as tight as possible. Cut into one sections, place into a camp oven and sprinkle more cheese on top of each scroll. Bake for about 45 minutes until lightly browned and the dough is cooked.

Open-Top Duck & Brie Pies

Puff Pastry
Two Fresh Duck Breasts
Brie Cheese
Red Onion Chopped
Carrot Sliced
Broccoli Florets
Garlic Crushed

For Sauce
20 gm Plain Flour
15 gm Butter
300 ml Milk


Prick the skin of the duck all over, season with salt and pepper and cook in a hot camp oven skin side down for 8 minutes.  Turn and cook the other side for a further 8 minutes. Put aside in a warm place


Grease pie tins and line with pastry.  Blind bake until pastry is cooked and browned.  I used dried beans to blind bake


While pastry is baking remove most of duck fat from camp oven and stir fry onion and garlic for several minutes.  Add carrot and broccoli and stir fry for about 4 minutes.


Meanwhile make the sauce by simply placing all ingredients in a small camp oven and whisk while heating until thick and smooth

(Sorry no photo - whoops)

When pastry is cooked add a generous dollop of sauce inside with two large pieces of Brie then add sliced duck and the vegetable. Then top with two pieces of Brie


Cook for a further 15 minutes to melt Brie


Serve with potatoes smashed with butter

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf


1 soft roll, cut into small cubes (or 2 slices white bread, without crust)
1/2 cup whole milk
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Kraft Natural Shredded Cheddar Cheese plus 1 1/2 cups for stuffing
1/3 cup chopped parsley
2 eggs
1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1.5 kg Premium mince
10 slices of bacon

For the glaze

1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

Make the Meatloaf

Pre heat camp oven.
In a large bowl, combine the bread pieces and the milk. Let it soak while you work on the veggies.
In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve to cool.
Once veggies are cool, add them to the soaked bread and then add the parmesan, cheddar, parsley, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, chili powder and paprika. Using a fork, mix until evenly blended.
Add the meat and season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix everything just until combined. You do not want to overwork the meat or your meatloaf will be dry!
Turn 2/3 of the meat mixture into a broiler pan and, with wet hands, pat the mixture into a loaf (approximately 9 by 5 inches). Press the center in, creating a rim outside of the meatloaf and fill the inside with the remaining cheddar cheese. Then, add the remaining meat mixture and gently close the gaps, pressing the sides to seal in the cheese. Use your wet hands to make sure the meatloaf is smooth!
Brush the loaf with the glaze, then arrange bacon slices over the loaf, overlapping them slightly and tucking them under to prevent curling.
Bake the meatloaf for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.
Cool for 10 minutes before serving!
