This week’s recipe is another camping one. Some of you might remember this recipe if you’ve ever been on a Con Trip. For those who have never been on one, let me tell you a little bit about them. Mr. Conaway was a Wayland Middle School special education teacher who used to bring kids on different types of camping trips. They would canoe and hike as well as build their own shelters to sleep in.
We would also cook great food.
Although Mr. Conaway retired a few years ago, he still loves to take kids out on trips. If anyone would like to join us, feel free to contact me on Facebook.
I just got back from one of these amazing trips where we made a Con classic: bunuelos. We like to call them Con-uelos and they’re extremely simple to make; I guarantee you’ll love them. They are basically fried dough with cinnamon and sugar, and I don’t think that I have ever gone on a Con Trip without making them.
1/4 Cup Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Sugar
First, mix the cinnamon and sugar and put it on a dinner plate.
Heat up a pan to medium heat and pour enough oil to cover the bottom.
Place a tortilla in the pan.
If the oil smokes, then it is too hot, but it should sizzle.
Fry the tortilla and pop any bubbles that form until it is golden brown on both sides.
Take it out of the pan and place it in the cinnamon and sugar; get it on both sides, but not too much.
Cut into quarters and serve hot.
