The menu can be a problem at the best of times, but don’t let it ruin your camping experience. Cooking at camp is supposed to be fun and easy, so enjoy these top three recipes on your next camping trip.
One Camping Recipe – Pie Pizza Campers
- 1 pound whole wheat bread
- 1/4 kg mozzarella cheese
- pizza sauce or spaghetti
Using a pie iron, take two slices of bread, place 1 1/2 tablespoons of pizza sauce on top of one slice of bread. Top it with mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperoni. Place the other side of the loaf on top and grease the outside of the loaf. Place the sandwiches in a pie iron and place over the coals. Cook until the bread is done.
Camping Dua Recipe – Roast Corn
- 2 Ears or corn
- Salt and pepper
Peel the ears leaving the husks at the bottom and remove the corn silk. Replace the husks that cover the ears and tie them at the top. Dip the corn in the salt water. Place the corn on a screen over the hot coals and turn it frequently until all sides are cooked. Once cooked remove the skin and add salt and pepper and margarine.
Three Camping Recipe – Campfire Pasta
- 1 pound Pasta; whatever
- 1 pk Spaghetti sauce mix
- 1 cn tomato paste
- 1 pound lean hamburger; Ground turkey or Italian sausage
- 2 pots
- 2 mixing spoons
- 1 cap
- Potholders or gloves
Heat the water to a boil in a large saucepan. In a smaller saucepan, cook the meat and add the sauce mixture, water, and tomato paste according to the directions on the sauce package. Cook pasta in water for 8-10 minutes. Place the lid on the pot and with gloves or a pot holder, drain the water from the pasta through the gap between the lid and the pan. Placing the pot on a stump or log and allowing the stump or log to support the weight of the pot helps. Mix the sauce with the drained pasta and serve.
Grated cheese can be used with pasta. Pasta note: Spaghetti is traditional pasta, but
wheels, or other, more compact and larger shapes will be easier to drain.
