30 + Camping Recipes!

May 28, 2012

You all knew it was only a matter of time before I put together this insane list of 30+ Camping Recipes, right? No? Well take a good look around because this list is INSANE and inspired by some of the most popular posts right here at One Sweet Appetite.

A few years ago, actually right when I decided to start this site, we went on a little camping trip with my in-laws and I decided to snap a few photos of the meals thinking it would make for a few good posts. Little did I know how much you all love the topic! Here we are just a few years later and I’ve got my first of several camping cookbooks out in stores (Foiled! Easy, Tasty, Tin Foil Meals) and the meals are still some of my most viewed recipes!

Before we get started, I want to share one important tip.

Get all of your prep-work done at home. Trust me. It’s much easier to just have things ready to go when you are out enjoying your vacation.  You don’t want to fuss over cutting potatoes or slicing up your chicken.

OK. Are you ready to get this party started? Hover over the recipe images below for the recipe name and click on them to be taken to the post! Easy as pie.

Not too shabby of a collection, eh? And don’t worry! I plan on growing this list quickly and continually adding new fun ideas!

But while you’re waiting for more be sure to check out a few of these other posts for some great cooking ideas!

I’d love to feature you and your cooking adventures!

    I recently saw a muffin baked in an orange rind that was done over the campfire. I have never done this, but it sounds really yummy! Maybe a blueberry muffin or even a corn muffin.

    Campin is definitely a way of life in our family. Some items I would add to the list are tin foil dinners and the couscous salad. And of course the smore’s. I will definitely mark this to refer to. Coming to you from Take a Look Tuesday.

    Did this at a scout camping trip once.. FANTASTIC. Brought the idea home to my husband to try. He was skeptical, but once he tried it, he was IN LOVE.

    Just a quick tip from a fellow blogger: Now that your blog is being passed around Pinterest, you may want to seriously consider correcting your grammar throughout the blog. And apostrophe S (‘s) should only be used to symbolize posession (Jesseca’s blog) or to abbreviate (It’s getting hot in here). The apostrophe S should never, ever ever ever ever ever ever be used in plural situations. (ie wrong: potato’s right: potatos.. wrong: recipe’s right: Recipes).

    It actually lowers your credibility in (not situation’s) situations like this 😉

    • Jesseca Reply

      June 12, 2012 at 3:40 am

      Emily,

      If my apostrophes are reeeeeaaaaally that big of a deal, by all means, come and fix my blog for me!

      To be honest, I really don’t think it lower’s my credibility all that much. I’m a food blogger. So what if I have some grammar errors. I do this as a hobby, not so much to make a ton of money, or have a HUGE impact on the blogging community. I like what I do, and I love the friends that I meet. Period. I’ve had a million and ten people tell me that I needed to fix my apostrophes, and I went through and fixed a bunch. The ones in the photos are just going to stay that way, because I would much rather spend time with my son, then worry about what people think of my grammar.

      I appreciate your concern, but the reality of the situation is that I just don’t care enough to change every little mistake that I have made. However, I will take it into consideration for future posts. I think my loyal readers will continue to come back, even if they realize that I’m not perfect. :0)

      July 19, 2012 at 6:30 pm

      Before you offer to correct other peoples grammar, you have to be very careful in your own spelling and wording. For example- more than one potato is not spelled potatos, it is spelled potatoes. LOVE these recipes, thank you for compiling them :)

    Found your blog on Pinterest … didn’t even notice (or care about) your apostrophes until ‘Emily’ commented on them! LOL …. course, Emily it’s best when correcting others that you make sure your own grammer (and spelling) is accurate.
    (ie wrong: potato’s right: potatos.. wrong: recipe’s right: Recipes).

    Potatos …. WRONG. PotatoEs ….. RIGHT. 😀

    See! Everyone makes mistakes!

    Excited to try out some new food ideas for camping this summer! Especially thrilled about the suggestions for toddlers! Thanks for the post!!

    I love the post! Thank you. This is exactly what I was looking for. We are constantly looking for camping meal ideas to get away from cereal bars, sandwiches & chips. And, no worries about grammar/spelling errors. Your “fellow blogger” made a few in her own comment to you, as well. I find you credible, as long as you are posting from experience. Oh, and I found you on Pinterest! :) Happy Camping!

    I appreciate the time and effort you put into what you do. Nothing more, nothing less. For anyone to comment on your grammer, shows lack of class on their part. If an individual is actually concerned, I would think the ” proper way ” to address the issue would be in a private message. Not looking for any type of feedback, just stating my opinion.

    These tips and recipes are wonderful! We just got back from a camping trip in which I made the breakfast burritos, chicken kababs, and tinfoil dinners. My husband LOVED the breakfast burritos! Adding the cream soups to the tinfoil dinners made the difference between my eating them and not! LOL! The kabobs were so good that we made them again when we got home from camping! Thanks!!

    Love this idea, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. I’m having trouble figuring out whAT the seven days of recipes are exactly. Is the Camping Recipe List meant to be a link? I only saw pictures for other postss for several breakfasts and dessert and only 2 or three ideas for dinners. What am I missing? Can you explain to me how I’m supposed to use this to get the seven days of recipes? Sorry for being dense! I’m going campning tomorrow and thought I would try these ideas. Thanks so much!!

    I just signed up to start receiving your newsletter. Found you on Pinterest, and am looking forward to your camping menu ideas. I agree 100% with one of your helpful tips: prepare as much as you can before leaving home. I even precook some foods, like breakfast potatoes, and bacon-cheese bisquits , so there’s less work to do once we get campside. We want to spend more quality time camping, fishing, hiking, etc., and less time preparing meals. Precooking some items at home saves money on camp stove propane too. Some campgrounds we go to in California won’t allow open fires, fire pits or barbeques because of the fire hazards. Propane stoves are handy, but the fuel cannisters can get expensive and take up valuable space in our campbox. By preparing as much as I can at home, we can usually get by with just one propane cannister during our camping trip. I can hardly wait to get my first newsletter. Nice web site Jesseca. Keep up the good work. :)

    we camp often in the summer months. if you camp with another couple or many others, i have found a fail safe breakfast thats super easy and carries you all the way in to lunch. the nite before, wrap a country ham in four to five layers of heavy duty foil. around 10: 00 p.m. dig a hole big enough to hold the ham and cover it, close to the campfire. cover it with hot coals and forget it. in the morning slice and fry your potatoes and scrambled eggs, along with some campfire toast. dig up your ham, being very careful of the hot ham and drippings. use leather gloves for protection. the ham will be so moist that the meat will fall off the bone. any left overs can be used for sandwiches. ham, ripe tomatoes, lettuce, and mayo for sandwiches. always a big hit for lunch after a hard day of fishing.

    HI JESSECA, I’M LOVING YOUR SITE. MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN CAMPING SINCE WE WERE DATING 31 YEARS AGO. AND WE HAVE RAISED OUR CHILDREN CAMPING AND THEY HAVE GROWN AND NOW ARE CARRYING ON THE TRADITION WITH THEIR OWN FAMILIES AND FRIENDS. I CAN SAY OVER THE YEARS I HAVE MADE COUNTLESS MEALS AND SNACKS. AND I ALWAYS LOOK FOR NEW IDEAS. ONE FAVORITE IS GRILLED FRUIT WITH OLIVE OIL AND BALSAMIC VINEGAR, OR FLAVORED BALSAMIC VINEGARS (EX. I USE EITHER VANILLA, LEMON, RED APPLE FLAVORS) AND I ALSO USE THEM ON SALADS INSTEAD OF DRESSINGS. THE LEMON BALSAMIC VINEGAR I ALSO USE ON FISH AND CHICKEN THAT I COOK IN FOIL PACKETS. IT CUTS DOWN ON FAT AND IS MUCH HEALTHIER. I ALSO USE IT ALONG WITH FRESH HERBS LIKE ROSEMARY, THYME, SAGE, OR EVEN BASIL. IF IT’S A SWEET DISH I ALSO USE FRESH MINT. THE APPLE FLAVOR WE USE ON PORKCHOPS OR PORKLOIN, SOMETIMES EVEN CHICKEN. BUT IT IS QUITE A STRONG APPLE FLAVOR SO A LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY. THE VANILLA ONE CAN BE USED ON ICECREAM, OR POUND CAKE, SALAD THAT HAS STRAWBERRIES OR PEARS IN IT. OR OVER PEARS WITH ICECREAM. I’VE EVEN USED IT OVER GRILLED PINEAPPLE. YUM! WHEN I USE THE FLAVORED VINEGARS I DRIZZLE THE PLATE THEN PUT THE FOOD OVER IT. THEN ADD ONLY A FEW MORE DROPS HERE AND THERE. I ALSO EAT A LOT OF FRESH VEGGIES AND I USE PLAIN BALSAMIC VINEGAR INSTEAD OF DIPS.
    THE WINERY THAT WE GET OURS FROM HERE IN PA, THEY MAKE THEIR OWN. AND THEY HAVE SO MANY OTHER FLAVORS TOO.
    THEY CAN BE FOUND AT http://www.SandCastleWinery.com
    ANOTHER THING WE HAVE ALWAYS DONE WAS MAKE CROCK POT MEALS IF WE’RE GOING TO BE OUT ALL DAY. I DO A DISH CALLED SIMON AND GARFUNKLE CHICKEN. WHICH IS CHICKEN PARTS WITH CHOPPED ONIONS, SALT AND PEPPER, THEN SPRINKLE EACH PEICE WITH PARSLEY, SAGE, ROSEMARY AND THYME. THEN TOP WITH ONE CAN OF EACH SOUP UNDILUTED, CREAM OF CHICKEN, CREAM OF MUSHROOM, CREAM OF CELERY, CREAM OF ASPARAGUS AND CREAM OF ONION. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT BRAND YOU USE, WHEN MY MOM AND I MADE THIS RECIPE WE USED CAMPBELL’S BUT THERE ARE MANY OTHER BRANDS OUT THERE, JUST USE YOUR FAVORITE. WHAT’S IMPORTANT IS THAT YOU MAKE SURE THE ASPARAGUS, CELERY, AND CREAM OF ONION ARE USED. THE CREAM OF CHICKEN AND CREAM OF MUSHROOM JUST ADD MORE FLAVOR. THE AMOUNT OF CHICKEN TO USE DEPENDS ON HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU NEED TO FEED. THIS MAKES A LOT OF GRAVY! IT MELTS AND MIXES WITH THE JUICES FROM THE CHICKEN. DO NOT ADD LIQUID. I ADD ALL MY PEICES TO THE CROCK POT. EMPTY ALL THE CANS INTO THE CROCK, AND MAKE SURE THE CHICKEN IS COVERED. PLACE LID ON THE CROCK. PUT ON HIGH FOR 3 HOURS OR MED. FOR 5 HOURS. OR HIGH FOR 1 HOUR (WHILE YOUR MAKING BREAKFAST) AND MED FOR 3-4 HOURS (WHILE YOUR OUT TOURING OR HIKING OR AT THE BEACH FOR THE DAY.) WHEN YOOU COME BACK, MAKE SOME RICE OR NOODLES TO GO WITH IT. WHILE YOUR COOKING THE RICE/NOODLES.. TURN CHICKEN AND STIR THE GRAVY. THIS CAN ALSO BE BAKED IN AN OVEN AT 350°FOR 1 1/2 HOURS.
    THIS IS ALSO A WONDERFUL PARTY FOOD. JUST DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF SOUPS AND USE A LARGE PAN.
    NOW I NOTICED THAT YOU HAD SOME PEOPLE COMMENTING ABOUT YOUR GRAMMAR. LOL WOW! FIRST OF ALL.. DON’T WORRY ABOUT THEM AT ALL. YOU KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO! WE ALL CAME TO YOU! IF WE WERE LOOKING FOR A POLITICALLY CORRECT COOKING SITE, WE WILL LOOK UP RECIPES IN OUR COOKBOOKS! YOU’RE A REAL PERSON DOING ALL OF US A SERVICE BY WRITING ABOUT FOOD! WHICH YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO TAKE TIME AWAY FROM YOUR WONDERFUL FAMILY TO DO. RIGHT?
    I’M SIGHT IMPAIRED AND GET TOLD ALL THE TIME ABOUT THE PROPER WAY TO USE ALL CAPS. BUT THOSE WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING ABOUT ME DON’T REALIZE THAT FOR PEOPLE WITH SIGHT PROBLEMS IT’S QUITE HARD TO SEE LOWER CASE LETTERS. MANY THINK I’M YELLING AT THEM LOL BUT I’M FAIRLY SOFT SPOKEN. AND I DON’T “yell” UNLESS I HAVE TO!
    I’M ALWAYS AMAZED HOW PEOPLE SEEM TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT TO DO AS IF THEY ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE, EVEN WHEN THEY ARE DOING THE SAME THINGS THEMSELVES.
    YOU HAVE AN AMAZING BLOG AND SITE. YOU KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING. I FOUND YOUR SITE ON PINTEREST BTW. AND I AM SO GLAD I DID! I AM SIGNING UP FOR YOUR NEWSLETTER!
