Bread in a Bag (Mini Loafs)

I love to find new recipes online that I can use on the boat, camping or even at home.  I found this one when I was looking for "non-messy bread recipes" and have been wanting to try it out for a while now. It looked like fun to do and almost too good to be true!   This morning, I got to test it out, and get the answers to a few question:   1 - Can I bake it in the toaster over?   2 - How does it taste?   3 - How much of a mess will I have to clean? (on the boat, I don't want to have a big mess - ie: flour everywhere) Here are my observations: 1 - Yes, you can bake it in the toaster oven, however mine burnt a bit. 2 - It tasted delicious!!! A new favorite has been found. 3 - Almost no mess - I scrapped off the dough (that stuck to the cutting board I used to knead) right into the garbage. Wiped up the flour next to it and threw out the large Ziploc bag I used. I cooked one in the normal oven (the one that is still intact in the photo above)

Cooking on a small boat - published on Migrating Loons

For over 10 years, we had a Larson 220 Cabrio cuddy cabin power boat (Paco2).  The cooking facilities were somewhat limited, but we learnt how to work with what we had.  A BBQ, butane stove, fixed alcohol stove, cooler and a 5 gallon water tank - that was it! We cooked some great meals on that boat! Sheppard's pie, muffins, and crepes where just some of the non typical foods we prepared and enjoyed during our trips. I will be keeping track of my hits and misses as we travel longer and further by boat this time. I'm sure I'll be applying what we learnt on Paco2, and improve on it.  I've already started collecting recipes that I think will be appropriate, and I can't wait to try them. Until next time, Tina
