Cook While Camping: Camping Recipe Tips

Camping food need not be dull. Here are a few quick and easy recipes you can try when you go on your next camping trip:

Camper’s Pizza

Butter a side of the bread of your choice and toast the bread slightly on each side. Afterwards, top the buttered side with pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and other pizza toppings of your choice. You may toast the bread again together with the toppings if you want.

Easy Bean Soup

Combine baked beans, tomato soup, a pack of dried onion soup mix and water into a pot, allow to boil and leave to simmer for a few minutes.

Simple Beef Stew

Season beef with onion and garlic and allow to brown. Afterwards, add canned vegetable soup to the mixture and allow to simmer until properly heated. This stew is best served with bread or baked potatoes.

Outdoor French Toast

Dip your choice of bread slices into a mixture of milk, eggs, and flour. After dipping, place the bread slices over a heated grill and allow to brown.

Here are some tips when you cook on camp:

1. Pack the food you plan to bring in the proportions in which they will be cooked or served. That way, you won’t have to be bothered by measuring the right amount of this and that ingredient once you’re in camp.

2. Make sure to place the items in your cooler in individual watertight bags and containers.

3. Avoid attracting animals to your camp by keeping properly storing your food, preferably above ground level.

4. Make camp cooking a group activity! If you’re camping with your friends or family, make sure that you get everyone to participate in the preparation of meals. It’s a great way to bond and it makes life easier for the assigned “chef” as well.

5. Find a use for all leftover ingredients. For instance, on your last day of camp, use the leftover meats and other ingredients to make a grand omelet for breakfast.

6. Bring a lot of ziplock bags. They come in handy when you need to store all kinds of food.

7. When cooking on a pot, make sure to always put the lid on, as it will allow the food to cook faster and it will also protect your food from insects.

Remember that when cooking while camping, you can get simple recipes that are easy to prepare but do not sacrifice taste and flavor – all it takes is a little enthusiasm and a great love for the outdoors.
