Hiking rugged trails, swimming in a lake, or sleeping under the stars are all part of the fun of camping. So is the food! It’s easy to get caught up in a junk-food rut when packing for a camping trip—potato chips, hot dogs, and sweets. But planning campfire meals that are better for you is easier than you might think.
Campfire cooking recipes require just a few ingredients and supplies, but the results can be delicious. You can make baked potatoes, veggie packets, and even popcorn.
Try these other ideas on your next campout:
- Pancakes: Mix up whole-wheat pancake mix before you leave, using dried egg and dried buttermilk. All you’ll need to add at the campsite is water.
- Tuna melts: Make tuna melts on crackers or toasted bread with tuna from a pouch and slices of individually wrapped cheese on top. Heat until the cheese melts.
- Kebobs: Load up skewers with mushrooms, peppers, cherry tomatoes, or other veggies for grilled veggie kabobs. Cook over an open fire until the vegetables soften.
- Hobo stew: Spray a large piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Arrange small chunks of meat, assorted fresh vegetables, and fresh garlic or garlic powder. Top with a pat of butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and gather up the sides of aluminum foil to make a sealed pouch, allowing some room at the top for steam. Cook in the coals for about 10 minutes.
