Hands down, camping is one of the most popular outdoor recreational activities in the United States. In fact, it brought in a total revenue of about $5 billion back in 2013. No matter if you are camping in a tent on a campsite, in an RV on multiple campgrounds, or just in the backyard, spending a night or two in the great outdoors will bring you closer to nature.
Many campers believe that just because they are outside, they have to resort to hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and smores by the fireside for their meals. While these may be delicious, they can get old fast. So here are some fun and interesting camping recipes to try out in those cabins, RVs, and tents.
Roast some taco meat over the fire, then add it to small bags of tortilla chips or Doritos. Top it off with some fixings such as cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and salsa, and your meal couldn’t get any easier.
Baked potato with an egg
Looking for an easy way to incorporate protein into your breakfast? Carve out a hole in a potato, crack an egg into the opening, then add some bacon crumbles and cheese for a hearty meal. Simply roll the potato in tin foil, and cook over the fire.
An easy side dish to any meal, these campfire breadsticks are easy-peasy. Take a can of pre-made biscuit dough, roll it between your hands to make a long strip, and wrap it around a stick. Toast over the fire, and you are all set.
These adorable bananas can act as an easy snack or a breakfast side. Cut the banana in half, making sure not to go all the way through the fruit, fill with a mixture of chocolate chips, peanut butter, marshmallows, and/or Nutella. Wrap in foil, and wait a few minutes until the toppings are melted.
This easy recipe combines cheesy and meaty in one easy-to-make dish. Take a big loaf of bread, cut about three-fourths of the way down, and fill each opening with onions, peppers, cheese, and roast beef. Cover with foil, and within a half an hour you’ll have cheesesteaks to rival Philadelphia’s.
