Recipes for the Boundary Waters and Quetico


Onion Mess
thanks to Skip Guyer

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 5 freshly sliced onions
  • 1 package corn muffin mix
  • 1 package dried scrambled eggs
  • 1 cup "milk"
  • cooking oil

Cooking instructions:
1. Slice onions for onion rings. Thick slices are best.
2. Combine "milk" and scrambled egg mix to make a "batter."
3. Dip rings in milk/egg "batter" then coat the wet ring with the corn muffin mix.
It won't stick, but the attempt is good form.
4. Drop rings in hot oil.
5. Use fork (not fingers) to remove rings from oil. Wipe forest floor from ring after you drop it. (depends on how dark it is and who gets this ring)
5. (continued) Surrender to the millions of mosquitos swarming the camp stove's heat
6. Dump remaining onions and "batter" into hot oil. Stir once in a while.
7. Remove when semi-cooked cause you're starving and there aren't any fish in Saganagons Lake.
8. Enjoy.

Avoid mosquitos - if possible - and then change the name to "Onion Rings" instead of "Onion Mess."

We actually performed this "ritual" last Wednesday night after traveling and not catching dinner. It honestly wasn't bad, if you like onions. Besides, I was tired of carrying the bloody things and we couldn't catch enough fish to bake.
