    I just made a batch of breakfast burritos that are ready for the buddy heater next trip out. Nothing beats warm food during a cold day on the ice!

    Bacon, sausage, mushrooms, red bell pepper, red onion, garlic, jalapenoes, eggs, cheese and hot sauce!

    What's your "go to" grub for a day on the ice?

    So, what do you do, throw those on your Buddy Heater?

    Nice color on the nail polish, btw.

    I freeze them then vac seal in bags of 2 or 3 and pull out of the freezer as necessary and throw them top the buddy heater. I can fit up to 3 at a time on the heater. Works great for a warm easy breakfast on the ice or in a boat.

    I'll let the gf know you approve of her polish...I can hear her now..."at least somebody notices"!

    I like it! Do you have any pic's of how you put those on your Buddy? Do you flip the grate/cover up somehow?

    As simple as that, just rotate often. They're best when ya get some charring on the tortilla. When you start to smell them, they're close. Cooking inside the shanty is best to block out any wind. When cooking in the boat I sometimes rig up something to block any breeze.

    Got Home Depot and get one of the paint roller greats and bend it to fit and make a small shelf to lay them burritos on that way you don't have to keep turning them.

    Alright, I did a practice run yesterday. I bought a package of the O'Brien style potatoes and did those with eggs, bacon and cheese. While figuring out my CPB (cost per burrito), it appears that it might be cheaper to just by burritos from Walmart.

    The cook time was a little lengthy, from a completely frozen burrito, it took about 20 minutes.

    There's a rack thing that clips on the Buddy Heaters. Those look good! We used to take my old Coleman white gas cook stove out on the ice and cook all kinds of weird stuff. No in-between, the stuff was either good or made you sick.

    My brother made a batch with taters and I wasn't a fan. I wouldn't calculate your CPB if I were you...that only leads to a CPF (cost per fish) calculation which will ruin your day. 20 minutes sounds about right. Friends always seem to conveniently show up around the 15 minute mark.

    I bet they pair well with a frozen green slurpie from 711!

    Exactly how I do it, just flip and rotate. I just did up a batch of turkey, bacon, Swiss on wheat for tomorrow’s all day even. I’m thinking of making some carnita quesadillas to warm up as well.

    After you eat all those your next "go to" will be a roll of TP! :confused:
