10 Easy and Nutritious Camping Meals to Fuel Your Wilderness Adventures
1. Omelettes in a Bag
Prepare individual omelettes by cracking eggs, adding your favorite vegetables, and then sealing them in a ziplock bag. Place the bags in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes, and you’ll have a delicious and mess-free meal. Customize each omelette to suit your taste!
2. Foil Packet Fajitas
Fill foil packets with sliced bell peppers, onions, and seasoned chicken or beef strips. Fold and seal the packets tightly and cook them over the campfire until the meat is done. Serve with tortillas, salsa, and guacamole for a flavorful fajita feast.
3. Campfire Pizza
Spread pizza sauce on English muffins or pre-made pizza crusts and top with cheese, your favorite veggies, and cooked or cured meats. Wrap each pizza in heavy-duty foil and heat over the campfire until the cheese melts and the crust crisps up.
4. BBQ Chicken Skewers
Thread chunks of chicken breast, bell peppers, and onions onto skewers. Brush with your favorite BBQ sauce and grill over the campfire until the chicken is cooked through and nicely charred. Serve with a side of corn on the cob for a delicious and balanced meal.
5. Tacos in a Bag
Crush a bag of corn chips and layer on cooked ground beef, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and any other desired toppings. Eat it straight out of the bag for a quick and hassle-free taco experience.
6. Campfire Stew
In a large pot, combine diced potatoes, carrots, onions, and your choice of meat (beef or chicken work well). Add broth, seasonings, and any other desired vegetables. Cook over the campfire until the ingredients are tender and flavorful. Serve with crusty bread.
7. Grilled Veggie Quesadillas
Grill sliced zucchini, bell peppers, and onions until tender. Place the grilled veggies between two tortillas with melted cheese and heat over the campfire until the cheese is melted and gooey. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa.
8. Campfire Nachos
Layer tortilla chips, cooked ground beef, beans, cheese, and any desired toppings in a cast-iron skillet or oven-friendly dish. Place over the campfire and cook until the cheese is melted and the nachos are warm. Serve with sour cream and guacamole.
9. One-Pot Pasta
In a large pot, combine pasta, diced tomatoes, sliced sausage, mushrooms, and seasonings. Add water/stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the pasta is cooked. Top with grated cheese and fresh herbs for a hearty camping meal.
10. Campfire S’mores
No camping trip is complete without s’mores! Roast marshmallows over the campfire until they turn golden brown and gooey. Sandwich them between graham crackers and squares of chocolate for a classic and delicious treat.
