7 Great Things to Cook When Camping ~ How To Cook Seven Simple Recipes Over a Campfire

brought to you by: AHMTRAVEL.COM

Camping makes you hungry, doesn't it? Even if you've relaxed all day long, all it takes to make your stomach rumble is the wonderful smells from your neighbor's campfire wafting through your campsite. What is that delicious smell? Instead of desiring your neighbor's fare, cook up some savory entrees and side dishes of your own over the campfire. The usual fare comes to mind when considering cooking over open fire. However, how about some new and exciting ideas for camp cooking? Consider these seven great things to cook when camping for your next holiday.

1. Marinated Meats - it's so easy to marinate meat while you enjoy summer activities around the campground. Simply slip chicken breasts, pork chops, or steaks into a zippered bag and then add your favorite marinade. Allow the meat to soak up all the wonderful spices and flavors from the marinade and then grill it over the open fire. The meat will be moist and delicious.

2. Cook it in a Can - cook vegetables like canned green beans, corn, okra, or pork 'n beans right in the can over the fire. Recycle a metal coffee can into a camp cooker. Layer your meat, vegetables, and potatoes in a large coffee can. Cover the top with heavy-duty foil and then place the can right on top of the hot coals (not a rip-roaring fire). Allow it to cook for roughly 40-50 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.

3. Breakfast - oh, the wonderfully inviting smell of eggs, pancakes, and bacon cooking over the open fire on a chilly camp morning is enough to get anyone out of the sleeping bag and seated at the picnic table. Use an iron skillet to cook up sunny-side eggs, bacon, or fluffy pancakes. Simple fares that will keep everyone full until lunch for sure!

4. Brats, Burgers, and Dogs - you simply can't go wrong with the traditional camp food, so be sure to include these in your lunch or dinner menu at least once during the trip. Spice things up by offering toppings like salsa, cheese, and pickle relish along with tomato sauce, mustard, and mayonnaise.

5. Foiled Again - aluminum foil is excellent for cooking up fresh fish fillets, chicken breasts, and pork chops. Add a bit of your favourite salad dressing, veggies, pearl onions, and red potatoes, and seal the packet. Everything will be cooked in no time.

6. One-Pot Meals - just like at home, one-pot meals are great for camp cooking. Toss the ingredients for a great pasta dish or a hearty stew into one pot and cook it over the fire. Voila, dinner is served!

7. Hot Beverages - with a pot of boiling water, you can have instant coffee, creamy hot chocolate, or a wonderful mug of tea in a short amount of time. Heat up apple cider over the fire and add a few cinnamon sticks for a wonderful fall beverage around the campfire.

There's really no limit to what you can make on your next family camping trip as long as you're willing to think outside the box and be creative when planning your meals. Try some of these ideas and see if your neighbors aren't looking your direction and wondering what you're cooking!
