Family Camping:

If you’re camping with your friends or family, make sure that you get everyone to participate in the preparation of meals. Start your day off with a hearty breakfast that’s easy to make.

Camping Breakfast Idea:

A breakfast that’s satisfying and easy to make is pancakes. You can speed things up while camping by using a pancake mix, however, if you like to make your own pancakes from scratch then pre-measure your dry ingredients, for example flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, and seal the ingredients into a ziplock bag. At your campsite you can easily add your wet ingredients and have a hearty pancake breakfast on the table in no time. An easy camping recipe for breakfast will allow you to enjoy a satisfying meal that will fuel you for your day outdoors while being easy and quick to prepare so that you don’t miss out on fun time.

Camping recipes don’t have to be restricted to meat-filled classics, and there are many vegetarian camping recipes for kids and the whole family to make and enjoy. Fun camp cooking recipes are an especially great activity for family camp outs. On a family camping trip, fun camp cooking recipes can be tried at the end of a day while you are enjoying the campfire. Camping dessert recipes are also fun and easy for kids to make, and the whole family enjoys eating them. Have a favorite family camping recipe that the kids love to cook. Blend your family’s favorite tastes into camping meals they will savor. Below are two different types of camp cooking you can try:

Cooking with a Dutch Oven while Camping

Cooking on camping trips can be the most enjoyable part of the experience, especially if you are not too keen on spending the entire day hiking or playing cards.

Dutch oven campfire cooking is one of the best ways to make meals on camping trips. A large and deep Dutch oven will have room for many serving sizes so that you can feed an entire family. Dutch oven camping recipes are great for breakfast – not just dinner – since all ingredients can be cooked in the Dutch oven. Easy Dutch oven camping recipes for delicious meals around the campfire are available at many websites. Shallow Dutch ovens can also be used to cook breakfasts on a smaller scale. And don’t forget that you can bake fresh bread in your Dutch oven although a handy camping tip is to take along pita bread instead of regular bread, as it will hold up longer.

Campfire Cooking

All you need is a campfire, and you will have a hot meal in minutes. Everyone seems to work up a huge appetite while camping, so you’ll want to be able to easily whip up some quick and tasty camping dinner recipes to satisfy everyone’s hunger. Campfire dinner recipes can be as simple as old favorites like macaroni and cheese or more exotic pasta dishes. Any grill recipe will usually work well over the campfire and the kids will enjoy cooking their own hot dogs over the campfire.

Everyone can partake in campfire favorites such as S’mores, or try a new campfire dessert recipe that is both simple and fun to prepare.
