Dump Dinner


This is an easy recipe my family enjoyed along with several other families during camping outings. The guys would cook huge batches outside in a couple pots and the kids thought it was fun to eat at the picnic table using newspapers as our plates. It’s very low maintenance and clean up couldn’t be easier! Here’s a single family-sized version that can be done on the stove top.

3 oz Old Bay Seasoning
2 tbsp. salt
1 ring Kielbasa or Turkey sausage, cut into 1” pieces
8 ears of corn on the cob, cut in half
4 handfuls of pea pods 2 lbs.
Unshelled uncooked shrimp
8 small, red potatoes quartered

Optional side: French bread and butter

The amount of items above can easily be modified to your taste.

Cover the table with several layers of newspaper.
In large stock pot, fill it half way with water. Bring to a boil.
Add the old bay seasoning and salt and boil for 5 minutes.
Add kielbasa. Boil for 20 minutes.
Add the corn. Boil for 5 minutes.
Then, add pea pods. Then, add the shrimp. Cook for 3 minutes or until the shrimp have turned pink.
Drain the meats and veggies in a large colander
Dump the food into a heap on top of your newspaper.
