When you're camping, it's important to come equipped with some of these 5 easy camping recipes. Some of the best meals can be made on a campfire or on a small camping stove. With a little preparation before you head out, and with basic cooking equipment, you can be making delicious homemade meals in no time.
- Campfire-Seared Salmon Easy camping recipes don't have to be boring. Place a salmon steak on a sheet of foil and curl the foil around the salmon to create a bowl under the salmon. Sprinkle three cloves of garlic on the salmon steak and spritz it with the juice of one lemon. Add salt and fresh-cracked ground pepper. Cover the packet lightly with a sheet of foil and crimp the edges to create a package. Place the steak on the grill and cook for 15-30 minutes.
- Campfire Spaghetti To keep camp cooking simple, consider easy camping recipes that require some cooking ahead of time. Before embarking on your camping trip, brown a pound of ground beef with some sauteed onions and garlic. Drain the beef and pour it into a zip-top bag. Place in your camping cooler. Once you're camping, boil a quart of water in a pan on a camp stove or campfire. Add a pinch of salt, and once boiling, boil a package of spaghetti noodles. In another pot, pour in a jar of spaghetti sauce and dump in the ground beef. Heat the sauce and meat through, and serve over the drained spaghetti noodles and sprinkle a small amount of Parmasean cheese on top to serve.
- Hearty Breakfast Getting your belly full of a hearty breakfast with these easy camping recipes is simple. Start out with a hot skillet and griddle on a campfire or camp stove. Cut three English muffins in half, and place face down on the griddle. Add a few teaspoons of oil to the skillet, and crack three eggs and put them in the skillet. As the eggs are finished, add a slice of cheese and place them on the English muffin.
- Hiking Tacos Before going camping, bake 2-3 chicken breasts and dice into small pieces. Once you're camping, put the chicken into 4-5 tortillas. Top with diced tomatoes, salsa and lettuce. Wrap the tacos tightly in foil and place them in a small camping cooler. This is one of the easy camping recipes that can keep you full during a long hike.
