Camping is a great way to get in touch with nature, but being away from your modern kitchen might make you wonder how to feed your family. There are so many amazing ideas beyond hot dogs and s'mores!
Omelettes In A Bag
Sure, it might be easy to plan dinner around the campfire, but what about breakfast? Skip the granola bars for these boil-in-a-bag omelettes from blogger Beyer Beware. Mix eggs and fixins before you leave for your camping trip, keeping them cool on ice. When you're ready to eat, just drop each customized bag into a pot of boiling water over the campfire, cook for about 15 minutes and eat!
Perfect for Paleo dieters, these onion bombs from This Grandma is Fun are a flavorful, low-carb way to have your burger and eat it, too.
Now We're Cooking!
Wrap the onion bombs in foil and place them on a very hot fire for about 15 minutes, occasionally flipping to ensure they're cooked on all sides.
Campfire Monkey Bread
What's a camping trip without a little dessert? When s'mores are played out, bring in the monkey bread! This cinnamon roll-inspired treat from Say Not Sweet Anne is baked in dying coals for the perfect end-of-the-night snack.
This tasty treat is au naturel. Stuffed with dried fruit and nuts, these campfire-baked apples from Family Spice are a taste of fall with the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg. When they heat up, the warm, aromatic flavors will make your mouth water.
Caprese Stuffed Chicken
You don't have to sacrifice restaurant-quality cooking just because you're going camping. Stuff some chicken with basil, mozzarella and roma tomatoes before you head out for your camping trip like blogger The Wholesome Dish. She recommends using two layers of foil for extra security on the campfire.
'Walking Taco' Station
With so many places to explore outside, you don't want to slow down to eat while camping. Instead, set up a "walking taco" station with stuffable bags of Fritos like The Girl Who Ate Everything. Add diced tomatoes, taco meat, lettuce, cheese, onions and other toppings inside to create an on-the-go taco.
Add A Touch Of Spice
If you're worried about how those spices for your grilled recipes will actually make it to the camp site, store them in a pill box. This way you can season to taste in a pinch.
Dutch Oven Pizza
It's not delivery. It's dutch oven pizza! Build a pizza inside a dutch oven, including sauce, pepperoni, and the toppings of your choice, then place it on the fire and cook for 10 minutes. After the time is up, What's Cooking America recommends adding the cheese and cooking another few minutes until melted.
With just three campfire-friendly ingredients, you can turn a can of pie filling into a campfire cobbler. Just 2 Sisters used white cake mix, blackberry ginger ale and pie filling to create this shareable campfire cobbler.
No camping trip would be complete without chocolate and marshmallows. Slice open a banana and add marshmallows, chocolate and peanut butter chips, then wrap in foil like Classy Clutter. Warm it on the campfire for 5 minutes for a decadent dessert in the wild!
Bacon And Eggs In A Bag
This is a camping classic! It sounds crazy, but raw eggs can be added into a bag with uncooked bacon for an easy breakfast.
Fire It Up!
Place the bags on a stick and roast it over the campfire until the eggs and bacon are done to your liking. When you're done, just eat directly from the bag!
Gather 'Round The Fire
No matter which of these hacks you choose, they're bound to bring family around the campfire. Light up that wood and get cooking, because these recipes are hard to resist!
