"Golden Skillet Award" at Camporees 

This event was one of those where Scouts are given a bunch of stuff and told to go cook.  Because the boys in our Troop have good basic cooking skills and know what goes into basic mixes like pastry, cake, breads they were able to get going fast.  They also have good handle on using spices and flavors. 

At first they had to pick a direction on what to make because there was so much in the box, but in a few minutes they zeroed in on a plan. They used the rest of the stuff later that night (it was a lunch competition) for other treats. 

bullet 1lb ground sausage 
bullet 1 medium onion 
bullet 2 lb bag of fresh cranberries
bullet 6 apples 
bullet 1 cup hard brown rice 
bullet 2 Raman noodle packages 
bullet 1 lb margarine 
bullet 1/4 cup white sugar 
bullet 1/2 cup brown sugar 
bullet About 4 cups white flour 
bullet About 2 tsp baking powder 
bullet 1 tsp cinnamon 
bullet Bag of about 12 pepper packets

This is what each Patrol got. They were not allowed to add anything else but they didn't have to use everything either. They were given the box at noon and had to deliver their creation to the judges by 2 PM. The weather was about 25 - 30F and it was snowing. 

Some Camporees or Troop-level Golden Skillet competitions feature both youth and adult Golden Skillet Awards. Variations can include a contest in which you can make anything you want as long as you use no metal in the cooking or preparation (no foil, no metal knives, no Dutch ovens, etc.).

Another variation is to require the use of fresh fruit and to cook in a Dutch oven.  I hear of salmon in Mandarin oranges, Canadian bacon & pineapple pizza, apple crisp, and more. 

The more interesting things Scouts learn to cook the more fun it is!
