Trash Can Dinner

Everybody enjoys doing something a little unusual sometimes. Even if it means cooking your meal out of a garbage can.

Not a used one, of course, but the idea is the same.

So when one of our residents suggested that we give it a try, we latched onto the idea.

Below is a recipe for you to try yourself:


20 sweet corn in husk 20 potatoes 20 carrots 20 onions Cabbage, one wedge per person Smoked sausage, 10 to 12 lbs. 2 cans beer 1 can water

Purchase a new garbage can and wash out with a bleach and water mixture. Pull husk down and remove the silk from the corn, then wrap husk around corn and stand on end in garbage can. Scrub potatoes and carrots and put on top of the corn. Next onions, cabbage and smoked sausage.

Pour 2 cans of beer and one can water over the top. Secure garbage can lid. Build a charcoal fire and place can on coals. Do not remove lid. After you notice steam coming out from under lid, cook about two hours.
