The following recipe for Simple Mac & Cheese Supreme is from SurvivalBlog reader G.E.. He recommends this as a recipe for camping and backpacking. This recipe can be doubled or tripled, if you have a large enough pot.

  • 1 Box of store-bought Macaroni & Cheese. (Such as Velveeta, Kraft, or Annie’s.)
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of Dehydrated Vegetables
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of dried beef bits, or real bacon bits, or shredded mild jerky,  or a retort packet of tuna or salmon.
  • A small shaker with a snap closure filled with your favorite seasoning — such as Cajun Spices, Curry Powder, Chili powder, or Taco Seasoning.
  • A canteen or Nalgene bottle of filtered water or any other source of safe, potable water.
  1. Place all the ingredients into a pot and add water to nearly cover it.
  2. Bring it to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer it, stirring frequently until all ingredients have cooked through.
  3. Add more water — only as needed.
  4. Judiciously flavor with your seasoning of choice and stir that in thoroughly before serving.
