By Theodore Roosevelt

If cooking fish involves too much work for your Second Class Scouts, try this method described by a beloved former member of the Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America, Theodore Roosevelt.

"My personal opinion is that I am an excellent cook in the woods, but I am sorry to say that certain of those who have lived on my cooking do not agree with me. Practically all my cooking has been done in the frying pan, and almost all of it is garnished with what out West we used to call, 'overland turkey,' - namely, bacon.

"I am very fond of trout cooked western style. Clean the trout carefully. Cook in your fry- pan enough bacon to give you sufficient fat to prevent the fish from burning. Now dip the fish in pancake batter, lay a couple of pieces of the partly cooked bacon inside the fish, and place it in the pan. Cook him well, in a very hot pan, being careful not to let him shrivel, which will happen if he lies too long on one side.

"If to the above recipe you will add a ten-hour hike, hunt or fish, you will find it excellent."

Tip

Almost any fish you're lucky enough to catch will submit to Mr. Roosevelt's cooking method, and you will, as he did, appreciate yourself as a cook.
