anyone have recipes that can be made in one pot?
My wife is trying to put together a recipe book for our boat that involves mainly one pot meals. Other recipes are welcome as well. Please keep in mind that we have a 2 burner stove, a small oven, an ice box, and a small bbq grill to work with. I am very much looking forward to hearing what everyone else is enjoying while aboard.

Buy a package of Mc Cormacks Chili Seasoning and follow the recipe on the back of the package. EZ PZ...

1 lb of chopped beef, 1 can of diced tomatos (14 oz.), 1 can of kidney beans.
and the seasoning. I add some cooked elbow macaroni or other pasta like ditalini.. Then garnish with raw diced onion and shredded cheddar cheese.

Takes about 10 minutes to make.

I like scrambled eggs with spam and mexicorn on boat trips. Scramble the eggs in the pot, add the canned corn and spam in time for them to get heated through (you can leave out or substitute for the spam if it's not to your taste). Simple, filling, one pot. Eggs aren't the easiest thing for provisioning for a long trip, though.

Another good one is Zatarain's mixes. Black beans and rice, or the jambalaya mix. Comes in a box, cooks in one pot. Slice some kielbasa and add to the pot, and you've got a warm filling meal.

I actually am in the process of writing a cookbook for my stepson who is away at college. So far everything is a one or two pot or crockpot meal. If you'd like I can email what I have so far. It's too large to post.

I'd be interested in that, MeckDC. Sent you a PM.

Secondwindnc: thank you for the recipes, I've never had spam and eggs before, I'll have to try it out.
Meckdc: I would also be interested. Pm is on the way, thanks.

Brown a couple of pork chps in the bottom of a dutch oven. When browned, throw in some rice, and a couple of cans of french onion soup. Simmer until rice is done, and pork chops are mellow. Simple, filling, & good.
Couple of chicken breasts in the dutch oven. Cover with canned mushroom soup (undiluted), and an equal amount of sour cream. simmer slowly. Add 3/4 cup rice for each breast, and continue until rice is done. You may want to increase the rice/mushroom soup/sour cream as it may be the best part of the dish.

I've heard there is a one-pot wonders web site which ought to serve you very well. Personally, I recommend Chicken Tagine as displayed at Recipes, Menus, Cooking Articles & Food Guides, for which I get rave reviews every time I serve it to guests.
