Camping Recipes

A great part about camping is making meals as a family. We all know how hungry everyone gets when they can't grab the easiest thing out of the fridge. Here are a few recipes to keep you full on your adventurous camping trip :)

Breakfast Scramble:
  • 1 lb Bacon - (Fry and crumble the bacon before your trip)
  • 1 Pack of Frozen Potatoes
  • 12 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Onions (Onions can also be chopped beforehand)
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • Salt & Pepper
Melt the bacon grease. Use a large iron skillet for the process. Then, add the onions. Follow it up by adding potatoes and cook until brown. Now, add the crumbled bacon. Whisk eggs and milk together whilst the potatoes get cooked. Wait until the egg mixture gets slightly foamy and then pour it over the browned potatoes. Turn the mixture every few minutes until eggs are done. This recipe can be cooked on an open fire or a camp stove.

Fish for Lunch:

If you happened to go fishing and caught something good, fish makes a great lunch while camping.
  • Fresh fish
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small onion
  • Pam cooking spray
  • Aluminum foil
Clean the fish and spray the aluminum foil with Pam. Now, place the fish on foil. Slice the onions and lay a few slices on each fish. Fold the foil and place on the campfire. Keep a check on it till it cooks. The fish will appear flaky when done. Yum!

Hot Dogs Over the Fire for Dinner:

All you need is hot dogs, buns, a stick and some fire. Roasted hot dogs are the best kind you'll get. The kids will love joining in on the roasting process (even if they do hold it over for a little too long). No matter what, they'll be better than ever!
Don't forget about Dessert!

Of course, everyone's favorite is the classic s'more. But we thought we would share another great recipe for dessert - The Banana Boat
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup miniature marshmallows
Slit each banana lengthwise through the peel, making sure not to cut all the way through to the other side. Stuff the bananas with marshmallows and chocolate chips. Wrap each banana in aluminum foil and cook over a fire. Eat with a spoon.

Share any of your camping recipes - we'd love to hear what you do!
