Camping food isn’t just about s’mores or snack packs! Instead of going for the usual, check these recipes out and try something different to impress your loved ones during your next camping trip.
- Camping Quesadillas
Very easy to make, and everyone will surely love them. This goes especially for children who love the cheesy goodness! All you need to do is to add salsa, chicken, beans, and cheese over a tortilla. Fold it and put it on foil and start grilling it! Take it off once the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crispy. No need to use plates anymore, just serve it and you’re good to go!
Another Mexican dish known to be easy (but a bit messy) to eat, burritos are the way to go! You can do it camping style through mixing in all your favorite ingredients, such as sausage and rice, into a tortilla and wrap them up. Just like the camping quesadillas, place it on foil and heat it up. Let it cool, then start eating.
- Campfire Bacon
A hearty breakfast always calls for bacon! You can make bacon skewers and get it extra crispy with the crunch you want through weaving the bacon into the skewer, leaving a gap between the weaves for the whole bacon to cook. Place it over the campfire until it looks well-cooked and crispy, rotating it every few minutes. After about half an hour, get ready to enjoy your bacon!
- Grilled Chocolate Banana
Tired of the same old s’mores being the staple dessert around the campfire? Then try these grilled bananas! Simply slice up a banana and add mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Place it on a foil and leave it on the campfire for a few minutes, until the chocolate and marshmallows start to melt. Unwrap the foil and add crushed cereal then serve!
