I use Velveeta, dice it up as the Penne or ziti boils as directed. Drain, mix Velveeta until well melted. Scoop into tins, add bread crumbs on top and bake at 350 degrees until slightly browned. It makes several, I cover with foil and freeze. I take them out a day before use to thaw. Warm them on Mr. Buddy.

Baked ziti is good too. Boil ziti as directed, drain and add a sauce/ricotta mixture, blend well. Top off with mozzarella and bake at 350 until cheese is melted, slightly browned.

The larger tins are perfect for Frank & Beans or Pre-prepared(cooked) Sausage, Onion and peppers.

That Stanley pot would warm up some Hot Chocolate also... ;)

We went out in our flip up yesterday and used our little buddy heater for the first time. As I sat there I got to thinking how I cook lunch if we wanted something hot. When I got home I got on the site and punched in cooking on a little bubbly. You guys are amazing! I showed the girl friend what you guys were doing and said I could make something similar. It was then that I went and got the dumb thing that came with a roasting pan to lift out the meat. Before she had a chance to say a word I whipped up this. Took a half hour some cutters and it was done. It hooks into the heaters current holes and on to the wire shield. It also folds flat for storage. Thanks to all for the inspiration. Now I can have a hot lunch out on the ice.

Pantry3cow, nice job. I like how the handle folds down. I wish the big buddy did that. Here is what my son and I had yesterday. I didn't have squers so I took tinfoil to keep the grease from dripping on the heater. You can also see why I would like a fold down handle.  I was using one of the alum. cooking tins.

These are great. Do you guys get stuff spilled on the heater by doing this. Just wondering. I like to try keeping my stuff look as new as possible and would love to make up one of these.

I have a Clam Guide 2 man pop up and it is very rare that I ever need the high setting on my little Buddy heater.

Here is a few pics of the cooker mod I added to my Big Buddy for under $5.00. The add-on is just a cooling rack from Wal*Mart (found in the kitchen dept) bent in half and copper wired on to the existing grill.







The difference between an 8" hole and a 10" hole is.....a 10" hole will usually give you your boot back!

In the food chain of life...its not good to be referred to as: "a good eating size".

Go to a metal recycling place and you can get all of the old oven racks that you need.   ;)  Works great for cooking over campfires and in smokers also.  Happy trails !   :)

Small pot with lid, great for heating up coffee, hot  chocolate, soup... Picked it up at Walmart, camping aisle.

I know this is going way back but it's such a great thread and was the answer to my problem. I'm trying the cheap paint tray method, I don't need anything fancy, just something simple.

I just tried a BBQ rib rack I had lying around  ...fits on my portable Buddy ...one way looks promising for dogs and things wrapped in cylinder type tin foil configuration ...and flipped over looks like it will hold tin trays similar to the way other guys have been using...so check those seasonal BBQ isle ...everything must go isles round Labor Day fellas sure to find BBQ racks and grills

 I use a small bbq grill secured between the handles of the heater.  I usually warm up Hormel chili in a sauce pan when I'm on the ice.

when reheating something on the buddy heaters does it take a long time for it to get to eating temperature if it has been frozen. Thanks.

I have never timed it, it doesn't take long... 10-15 minutes? All I know is piping hot coffee and warm meals with no fuss or mess is awesome!  ;D

Those are awesome ideas! Now, let's see somebody come up with some sort of a wind-up rotisserie hook-up. :)

I saw this thread and I had to add this mod to my ice fishing arsenal. I was able to boil water after 63 minutes. This surprised me a little.

I can't wait to get out of work to go fab up a rack for my big buddy. I am also going to include some hangers off the end for drying out gloves.

So great stuff here!  Gonna have to shop around for a paint roller grate this week!  Hot soup would sure beat cold sandwiches!

I rigged up an old bread cooling rack onto my big buddy. Planning an overnighter this weekend. Just need to decide what to cook!
