Chicken Kebabs 64
Have a BBQ-themed camp with these kebabs!
These are so easy to make, only requiring diced chicken cubes, your favorite vegetables, marinade, and the sticks! Prepare these at home before you go camping and then set them up on a grill like these: https://www.globosurfer.com/best-portable-grills/, letting it cook for a few minutes.
Serve with rice or tortilla wraps and you’ve got yourself a hearty and delicious meal that everyone will love!
If you’re planning to prepare your food and dishes before the camp, then you’ll love these picnic sandwiches. You’ll be surprised that these tastes even better a day after you make it!
All you need is to prepare your favorite filling, load it with meats and cheeses, and wrap them in foil to keep them safe during the road trip. Warm up over the campfire and you’re good to go!
The foil is one of your best friends when packing food. Not only can you keep your prepared dishes and ingredients safe in them, but you can also use the packaging to warm and cook your food over the fire!
A great idea is to use the foil for BBQ chicken and vegetable dinner. Prepare your vegetables and chicken with your favorite marinade (I love sweet and sour style chicken, with diced pineapples, peppers, and breaded chicken!).
If you’re up for a dessert this time, then this strawberry and cream cheese camping dessert will be pretty fun AND easy to try out! All you need are three ingredients (cream cheese, jam, tortilla) and your fire iron. Heat up the tortilla, add your desired fillings, and wrap it up to create a sweet pocket everyone will love! Use different fillings to make it even more fun!
Dutch Oven S’Mores Cake
Now, this is a whole different take on the usual s’more sandwiches! Instead of an individual s’mores, try creating an entire “cake” using your Dutch oven. Only taking ten minutes, this is one recipe you’ll need to try (and is very picturesque!).
With a pre-baked angel food cake (can be made from the box), chocolate bars, graham crackers, and jumbo marshmallows, you’ll have a masterpiece!
This is probably another awesome and easy recipe to do over the grill. People will think it was such a complicated recipe, but it’s actually very easy and quick to make!
Create your own quesadilla flavors and rack up on your favorite cheeses and marinated meats. For sure it’ll be a hit with the kids, and very filling!
Omelets in a Bag
This might seem pretty off of you to do (who would mix their eggs in a ziplock?), but it’s actually a recipe that will make your campfire omelets a breeze. All you need to do is to add in eggs and your favorite toppings in a bag and place them in a large pot of boiling water. Drop the bag, let it cook for about 15 minutes, and you’re good to go and eat!
This is quick and straightforward to prepare and cook. Simply mix two cans of stewed tomatoes, a cup of corn, two cups of canned beans, a packet of taco seasoning, and a pound of cooked ground beef. Cook it all together before you leave and freeze it in freezer bags. Once it’s ready, just dump it in the bot and let it simmer. Enjoy!
Another delicious (and healthy!) dessert are caramel roasted apples, which is easy and only requires three ingredients. With sliced apples sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, wrap it around foil and let it warm over the campfire for about five minutes. Dig in and enjoy the sweet and simple dessert!
