[Total: 1    Average: 5/5]

Survival flat Bread is a absolutely great survival food because of its simplicity and versatility. The ingredients will travel indefinitely if kept dry, and you can cook it in the most extreme conditions, with or without cookware.

Once cooked, it is nutritious, tasty, and will keep several days without spoiling. Depending on your ingredients, it costs literally a tenth as much as commercial foods, and is just as nutritious.  You can roll this dough out flat and cook it on a heated up rock it is that simple!

  • Salt to taste

Survival Flat Bread Directions:

  1. Heat a skillet over a fire.
  2. mix teh dough in a pan or bowl till the dough is a smooth sticky lump
  3. Roll the dough into a thin sheet like a tortilla.
  4. Sprinkle with salt.
  5. Fry, bake, or roast until done.   use a rock or  steel plate heated up over teh campfire coals or bbq grill or wrap a thin strip of dough around stick.



Notes and Tips:

  • The use of oil in this recipe makes the bread taste better, gives it a flakier consistency, and provides more calories, but it will also go rancid in a few days or weeks, so it won’t keep as long as hardtack, even if you let it dry completely. For long-term storage, omit the oil.
  • You can roll it out long and pencil-thin instead of a tortilla and wrap it around a stick to roast it over an open flame if no pans or rocks are available.
  • Add seeds, ground nuts, and/or raisins for a richer trail snack.
  • When setting up you field kitchen to cook, make enough to eat that night and all the next day, or even the next few days. It will dry out to a cracker-like consistency, but won’t taste stale for several days.
  • Practice in your kitchen before you need to cook at the campfire!
