Nobody likes dirty dishes and nobody likes cleaning them. This is super simple. All you need is parchment paper and a knife or scissors. I originally made origami tea cups and origami "plates" (bowls) out of parchment paper, but  realized a much easier way (if cooking for yourself). Hope you enjoy this!

Step 1: Tools needed

-Parchment paper
-Pan you are cooking with
-Knife, scissors, or careful tearing with fingers

Most people have parchment paper laying around. You can cut it to fit your pan and just fold the corners over, or you can do a parchment paper cake round (like I did). I can post steps if you like, or you could look up videos on you tube. I would recommend cutting out enough for your trip plus a few more, so you aren't lugging around an entire roll (unless you are car camping in which case you probably won't be needing this unless you don't like to do the dishes).
Great concept. How about instructions for the origami itself (or at least links)? I'm an origami enthusiast so I know how, but others might not.
SO- thinking this out a little further... why would you need the pan? I mean, why dedicate to the extra weight of a durable, non stick foodsafe surface when the parchment does that...you just need something that spreads heat to the parchment reliably. <br> <br>A hot rock? <br>a log? <br> <br> <br>Hell, I bet you could make that meal in a parchment pouch (not scrambled but pseudo-poached) and cook it next to the fire. All you'd need is tongs to retrieve it.
A nice idea, I'll have to incorporate it on my next trip!
