I bring grilled cheese, ready to heat up in plastic bags, they fit perfectly inside a small pan. I also bring ramen noodle cups. Just add warm water. Easy.

I picked up a small propane weber q1000 grill on craigslist that works great on the ice.  They are a little pricey new but built well and work great with the cast iron grates and built in ignitor.  The stand breaks down and everything folds up to fit in the sled well.  Really makes ice fishing more fun - esp when I bring the kids or friends-

Usually Chili, pulled pork or brats.  I use this stove:

Good things come to those who bait.

Cheese deer sausage balls cooked in bacon grease! Simple recipe (shredded cheese, deer sausage and bisquick) and the kids love them! I do too!

If you have time for fancy cooking the fishing must not be going well. Coffee and a bag of trail mix is all I need if I have a fishing rod in my hand.

MSR Rocket if alone. It weighs nothing and a cup of ramen or coffee can make a difference on sticking out longer on a cold day.  If wife and son are along Ill heat up good stuff we prepacked in small aluminum tins on the buddy heater.

With an ATV or Car drive up to house everything is possible.  BBQ outdoors, baked potatoes, potato salad, beans,  and some wash to drink.  In the portable, thermos, alcohol, wrap sandwiches in foil outside buttered, and put on the "Buddy burner guard till it smells right".  Usually that means eat, pee, fish on, at the same time.  Close the door.

I bought the nesting set of camping pots and the Coleman version of the rocket stove all for under 30.00 if memory serves.  I can set up the butane canister next to me in my one man and within a few minutes have hot soup, boiling water, coffee, etc.  I have added boiling water to the Mountain House freeze dried pouches, but they are pricey and full of stuff I try not to eat.  Amazing what a cup of hot soup, tea, or coffee does to mental and physical well being.  Fished Wednesday in 18 below wind chill with 20-25 mph winds and thoroughly enjoyed the warm up's throughout the day.

For me small and compact is best.  Too many things to forget, have drop out of a sled, freeze to the ice or take up space needed for the other 50 gadgets I "need".

I have a pretty nice thermos. Will normally heat up some soup at the house, take it out and it will still be hot by lunch time.

You can't beat a good cigar,then go to a mom and pop restaurant. Get 2 eggs over medium, some corned beef hash. Coffee and tomato juice. Go home, clean fish. Take a nap.

I used to have a wire wrapped around the grate on my buddy heater that I called the wiener wire. I cooked all sorts of sausage products on it. The heater died so now I just plan my fishing around mealtimes. Fish for awhile, leave that spot to find food and relocate. Works great but we have a lot of good spots and restaurants in close proximity.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

If I am going out for a long day on the ice, I like to order too much pizza for dinner the night before and wrap the leftovers individually in tin foil. I have a Coleman sportcat catalytic heater, toss the slices on the heater and it warms them up quite nicely with a crisp crust. If no pizza then I toast some sandwiches on the heater.

If it is just me, I just bring 4 basic food groups: Teriyaki beef jerky, string cheese, smokehouse almonds, and oatmeal raisin granola bars.

If I am having guests, I keep it simple: brats or polish sausage & Frito's Pies. Quick, simple, easy, and I have yet to have any complaints.

When my boy's and I camp on the ice, I use a coleman 2 burner propane stove. I bring a pressure cooker (stove top type) and make a batch of deer/elk stew. Toss the meat in flour with seasoning and brown then add the veggies (potatoes/carrots/celery) with a little water. Cooks for 15 minutes and you have a hot stew. THE BEST :)

Take a pound of bulk sausage. Brown it in a pan. Then add sour kraut and cook it for 5-10 minutes. Extremely simple and it is one of the best tasting meals on the ice.

I like venison chili.  You can make it up ahead of time and just re-heat it.  I live at the lake and just fish in the cove in front of the house.  I f we have a bunch of guys fishing there,  my wife will cook up a batch and then i will bring out a pot and serve it in cups.
