Camping season is getting so close and I can’t wait to try some new recipes! I’ve been scouring the web and have come across a few that are making it to my “must-try” list. I thought I’d share that list with you today!
Breakfast: One method I came across was something called “campfire bacon”. You simply thread your bacon slices onto a skewer and cook over an open fire. Sounds great! I just need to remember to bring skewers with me when camping! Also, threading the bacon onto the skewers ahead of time is a possibility to help save some prep time when at the campsite. Pair it with hash browns and eggs and I will have a happy family! The second idea is called an Idaho Sunrise. I like this idea because your breakfast is already in the hollowed out potato shell! I can also see mixing it up with different breakfast meats inside and even a Mexican version! We have a few fellow campers that are gluten-free and this looks like a great recipe to accommodate their dietary needs!
Lunch: OH MAN…Campfire Chili Cheese Fries! These look really good and I can already imagine these becoming a big hit with the kids and teens that are usually in our group! Recipe is simple enough and again, this is a gluten free option. Best part of this recipe is NO DISHES!
Dinner: Again, this campfire version of a Philly cheese steak looks amazing! For the picky eaters, you could even make a version of this without the peppers and onions and please everyone all at once! I think this would be a great main dish served alongside some German Potato Salad made by my friend Lindsay.
Dessert: I stumbled across this easy dessert idea and it looks great! Everyone can make their own variety with a few different pie fillings. They are called Campfire Pies and it looks like the only equipment needed are sandwich irons. I see a Nutella pie in my future!
I hope you like what I’ve got cooking this summer! Let me know if you have ever made anything like this or have an idea that I need to try! Please share!
