Beyond Beef Jerky: Great Meals To Cook While Camping

While we’re on the subject of camping, we thought we’d share some camping recipes we’ve come across lately that sound simply delicious–at least better than beef jerky and trail mix!

Eggs and Pancakes. What? While camping? According to blogger and avid camper Liz Stanley, this can actually be pretty simple! Liz cracks her eggs into a large Ziplock bag, pours pancake mix and water into another Ziplock bag, and keeps them in a cooler. In the morning, she cooks them using a camping stove like this one. (For the pancakes, she just clips the end of the bag to pour the mix! How smart is that?) Check out the rest of her camping tips here.

Curry Chicken Pitas. This no-cook, spicy chicken salad recipe from Sarah of Trail Cooking would make a perfect lunch on the trail. Sarah’s three-ingredient Pecan Chicken Salad looks easy and delicious, too. And for dinner, check out her Last-Minute Meat and Olive Pizzas and Spicy Chicken Quesadillas!

Mac N’ Cheese. This one is made with three kinds of cheese + Panko bread crumbs and looks incredible.

Campfire Kabobs. How else can you get a balanced meal that requires no utensils?

Banana Boats. Prep these beforehand by stuffing the bananas with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and crushed graham crackers, then wrap in foil. Break these out after dinner and heat over the campfire for a gooey treat!

Of course, you can’t go wrong with classic hot dogs and s’mores over the campfire, either. (Speaking of s’mores, check out this Nutella and Banana version!)
