These were so easy to make, and the taste was stellar. I loved that the batter just squeezed straight from the package so there was minimal clean up.
My backcountry menu:

Fried these up for my parents this weekend who initially poo poo-ed the idea pre-packaged camp food. In the end they ate their words and these delicious little pesto bread bites.
Perfect fire food!
These were delicious which I'm sure, everything is from Mary Janes Farm! I love Mary Jane!
So far, I've only tested these in my kitchen (using trail prep methods), but they were deeeelicious and super easy to make. I would happily make these with dinner on a normal night and should be downright luxurious with some soup on the trail.
Very very good food. Just watch it. make sure you have a pan with decent heat dispersal. I tried cooking some in my MSR pot (thin walled stainless pot) over my Jetboil. and it just burned in the middle. The Bread is awesome when properly made :)
Mary Jane Farms backcountry food is great
Being a vegetarian I have a hard time finding healthy good tasting backpacking food. I have tried everything that Mary Jane Farms have to offer, all of it is delicious.
