    Default Winter food

    I know it's a little early but here is the scoop. My wife is trying to finalize her food menu for our Mobile kitchen for the H.D (Yes Vince that's why that blue thing is on the yard lol !) We are going to hit different snowmaching areas every weekend and are trying to get a menu up. Our food is going to be fresh none of those frozen beef patties %100 fresh beef. Any way looking at what people might want or get now as a quick grab and eat on the go hot food. So far

    Breakfast
    Burrito,Potato,egg,cheese,bacon
    Waffle,Egg,bacon sandwich
    sausage gravy biscuits

    Lunch/ Dinner
    Burgers
    hot dogs beef and reindeer dogs
    grilled cheese
    B.L.T
    Chili

    Coffee,soft drinks

    As of now no fried food holding off on the deep fryers for now
    Want to keep the menu simple so we can cook it and get it out as fast as fresh food can be cooked

    Man that's something. Fast food on the trail. Personally, I like your breakfast stuff at anytime.

    P.S. ANYTHING tastes better when it is deep-fried. The BEST french-fries in the world, as seen on Tony Bourdain, are deep-fried in duck fat. Get the deep fryers installed and start making people happy. But where can one get duck fat?

    We will serve our menu all day . I know about the deep fryer but before I invest 3 grand in a deep fryer setup you are just going to have to deal with chips

    If you are looking for things to cook on the go on your sled, pick up a copy of Sled Cooking 101 by Janine Stewart. It's full of recipes and ideas for your Hot Dogger/Muff Pot/Hot Pot/etc.

    Cold days I think of a hot meal that sticks to the ribs. Something with mashed potatoes....perhaps a Shepherds Pie packed into a big sourdough roll.

    Of course it hasta be made with moose burger.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Roger,
    Anything self-contained that's not to sloppy to eat when wearing all those clothes.

    A tureen or two of soup and chili would be popular, but surved in a steep sided container, like a 20 oz cup, not a bowl

    You're going to have a flat top, right? If so, quesidillas are super quick and easy to make.

    We have a monster flat in there Had to even out all the equipment on both sides so the trailer will not flip over LOL!!! But that is a good one will check more into that one. Trying to keep the menu short and sweet . Less is sometimes better learned that this year with our summer business

    wow, I've never had a shepherds pie packed into a sourdough role, but that sound freaking amazing. This is going to be my next meal for sure. I'll grind up some caribou and try this idea out. Might even make my ice fishing menu.

    Another question, What does everybody carry for $$$$ Cash or Credit ? Looking at a mobile card machine for the trailer right now we just have a home based unit for the other business.So might just have to take cash for a little while

    You'll find more and more folks traveling only with cards. I've caught myself at times with no cash on hand. It sucks but getting a card machine will most likely get you more business. So, so easy to flip out the plastic nowadays.

    Because of how remote even just a few miles down the road can be, I never leave home without at least $100 cash in my pocket for any unknown expenses. Gas on the trail, good samaritan type stuff etc.

    Keep in mind you'll pay out 3% on all credit cards.

    If you have an iPhone try Square for credit card transactions.

    I'd definitely hit a food wagon before and after sledding. Tasty yet grab and go food items
    , stuff eatable while on the road, would be an epic win in my book. How about a homemade pulled pork sandwich with slaw and spicy BBQ sauce?
