Camping Meals

The Best Camping Meals in Minutes

Something about camping makes everything you eat taste more delicious. The combination of fresh air and outdoor activities work up a hearty appetite. The best camping meals are simple to prepare and use basic ingredients so you can satisfy your hunger fast. Packaged foods are ideal for camping trips because they are easy to pack, quick to make and don't require refrigeration.

Heating Things Up

A variety of heating sources are used for camping cooking include a camp stove, Dutch oven, barbecue grill, open campfire and even hot rocks. I prefer cooking in a Dutch oven over a campfire because it offers the greatest number of options. These recipes are geared for a Dutch oven but can also be prepared on a camp stove, grill or over a fire. Remember to set an attractive table with a scenic view to fully appreciate the outdoor eating experience. The following recipes feed a group of four and the quantities can be halved or doubled to feed smaller and larger groups.

Best Breakfasts – Camping Meals

Raisin Cinnamon Egg Squares

This tasty breakfast includes fruit, eggs and bread for a diverse meal in just minutes.

You need: 12 slices of cinnamon raisin bread, 4 eggs, 3 tablespoons of milk, butter or cooking oil

To make: Beat the milk and eggs together in a bowl until completely mixed. Heat butter or oil in a griddle or pan. Soak each slice of cinnamon raisin bread in the egg mixture. Fry the bread on each side until it is golden brown. Tastes great by itself and served with canned fruit, butter, powdered sugar or maple syrup over the top.

Vienna In The Morning

In minutes, you can have a gourmet breakfast featuring eggs, potatoes and sausage with a flavorful Vienna flair.

You need: Large can of Vienna sausages, 7 eggs or their equivalent in egg substitute, butter or cooking oil, large can of sliced potatoes, 4 tablespoons of milk and 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese.

To make: Slice the Vienna sausages in half. Brown the sausages and can of potato slices in butter or cooking oil. Beat the eggs and milk together. Pour the mixture into the browning sausage and potatoes. Fry for two minutes, sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top and serve.

This grilled sandwich with fish and cheese will make your mouth water.

To make: Mix tuna, mayonnaise or spread and a dash of dried onions in a bowl. Heat butter or cooking oil in a pan or griddle. Put a slice of American cheese food on 4 slices of bread. Scoop small amounts of tuna in the center of these 4 slices of bread with cheese. Put another slice of American cheese on each of the 4 remaining slices of bread. Put the sandwiches together and fry on each side until golden brown. Eat the extra tuna by itself or fry up more sandwiches if you're still hungry. Those counting calories can omit mayonnaise or spread, or use light mayo.

Bring delivery to your campsite with these yummy personal pizza packets.

You need: 1 can or jar of tomato sauce, grated Parmesan cheese, butter or cooking oil, garlic, small can of mushrooms.
