What do you do when things start going a little bit south? Make some trail food and go camping, that's what you do.

Keep plugging away buddy. I know plenty of folks who hear me speak who would be thankful for 15 minutes of dead air.

Irs a shame, too, as the soundless video was a biscuits and gravy recipe and I mention that it was your biscuits and gravy that gave me the inspiration for making them.

Aside from my comments diverting the conversation from your recipe…

… this one looks like a keeper. Well done amigo.

Yah. My heart soared like an eagle when I found these with the small cheese packets. I was just about to do one with the "add milk and butter to powdered cheese" stuff that we all remember surviving on in college before ramen became popular, using some butter buds from Dutch and some Nido for the milk.

The Velveeta people may have rescued me from a fate worse than Brussels Sprouts

Can't wait for the trip video. My search continues for a good, uncomplicated biscuits n gravy recipe.

Will the velveeta bowls rehydrate with FBC? I have tried other brands and didn't have any luck.

Agreed on Velveeta. Not sold on your Brussels Sprouts comparison. Done right, they are all kinds of good. Maybe you're not using enough bacon.

I had good luck with the one I did preparatory to the video. I believe that whatever that white powder is does the job of keeping it from turning to mush.

As to the biscuits and gravy: The gravy is basically the same as I used in the Beef Stroganoff recipe, but without any bouillon added. The biscuits are some I found in the Kroger bakery department (although the do not hold a candle to Uncle Mike's dutch oven biscuits), but you could just bake some of your own. I doubt that putting them in the pack will do much damage, I generally moosh my biscuits anyway.

Actually, after I typed that and thought really hard... I don't know for certain that I actually ever tried them in a bag maybe just the bowl. That might have been my problem. The white powder is starch that's supposed to keep it from boiling over in the microwave. When you boil it it kind of turns the water into "snot". Ive been cooking it in my pot so I dump it out.

Pre-made is probably the way to go for biscuits. It would be a good recipe to incorporate dutch's sausage, too.

Yep. I used one package of Dutch's sausage with one pack of the gravy mix, then divided into two meals. The Kroger biscuits came in packs of 4, so I've got two biscuits per meal, and will carry a plastic bowl from a frozen dinner to eat out of. I'll have one meal for sjupper next weekend when I go out, and the other will be a winter breakfast.

Life is good.
