Breakfast Camping Recipes

Ziploc Omelets

This is a super easy and everybody have it their own way recipe but very yummy and perfect for camping.

Before you start to make the novelettes you will need to set a pot of water on to boil which can be on your camp stove or over your campfire.
You need the quart size freezer Ziploc bags 1 for each person, then any omelet ingredients your campers prefer. list of possibilities-ham cubes, bacon bits, diced cooked chicken, onions, green peppers, broccoli, shredded cheeses, or anything that works for you. just set out the carton of eggs 2 per omelet and have each camper crack their eggs into the Ziploc. You can also bring a small container of half and half and put some into each bag but it works well with just eggs too. then everyone chooses from the extras what they would like in their omelet, drops it in their Ziploc, then zips it up and puts it into the pot of boiling water. It takes approx. 3 minutes, but you can check the doneness with tongs just lift the bag and look. It actually will roll itself up into an omelet shape in side the bag. When done just unzip roll onto your plate or into a soft tortilla, salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!!


Lunch/Snack Camping Recipes

Cinnamon Biscuits

1 - 4 Pack of refrigerated Pillsbury biscuits
Melted Butter
Cinnamon Sugar
Small Diameter Dowel Rods (Soaked in water all day in a 2 liter pop bottle). Take 2 biscuits. Twist them around the wet portion of dowel rod. Cook over fire until golden brown. Roll in melted butter and then Cinnamon sugar. Never tried but Blueberry biscuits have been suggested!! Kid's and Adult's love them just the same. Cooking them in the morning with coffee sounds good too!

Bacon Shrimp

Shrimp, bacon, cheese, sauce, butter....................Take as many shrimp to fill how many you are feeding or 5 or 6 per person for a appetizer. Clean shrimp, place on a cookie sheet. Cut strips of bacon and place on each shrimp. Place in over on 350 degrees. When bacon is cooked to your liking take out. Drain bacon grease. Cut strips of hoop cheese and place on top of each shrimp. Only a sec cheese will melt, take out. Dip in melted butter and your favorite sea food sauce. Mine is Texas Pete. No it is not hot.

Tortilla Delight

Take a small flour tortilla frost it with peanut butter. Then sprinkle with small marshmallows and chocolate chips.
Roll the tortilla up and wrap in foil. Place over campfire on grill for 5-10 minutes. Open carefully and enjoy.

Indian or Fry bread

Indian or Fry bread is a large, round, fried bread that is delicious with butter and jam.
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups milk
oil for frying
At home, measure 4 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Sift together and place in a container to take with you. At the campsite, place the pre-sifted ingredients in a large bowl. Melt the butter and add it to the milk. Add the milk and butter mixture, a little at a time, to the dry ingredients, beating until the dough becomes stiff. Sprinkle the remaining flour on a pastry board, or other flat surface and knead lightly until all of the flour is worked in. Roll the dough into 3 circles about 1/8 inch thick and 10 inches in diameter. Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of oil in a 10 inch skillet. When the oil is hot, fry each bread until crisp and light brown on both sides. Serve hot.



Dinner Camping Recipes

Lemmon Chicken Foil Cooked

For best results use boneless/skinless chicken breasts. Use as many as needed for your folks!!! We put 2 in each pack!!! 1 pack usually per person!!!

Fresh lemons, slice thinly (unless you REALLY like lemons!!)
Crushed Garlic
Italian Seasoning
A little bit of Real Butter per pack ( Spread LIGHTLY on tinfoil)

Take a piece of tinfoil - shiny side IN - place 4 lemon slices - to make a square. Lay 2 breasts, side by side, each on 2 of the lemon slices. Sprinkle breasts with Italian seasoning, and crushed garlic, use your own judgment on the garlic!!! (We like a lot!!!!) If you are a true lemon lover, place 2 more slices on top of each breast. (or 1 will work also!!) Or none at all!!! Pull sides of tinfoil up and roll the sides together back down and then roll the ends in. Place the packs right onto your hot coals!! This works great on a grill, or even an open campfire!!! Cook for about 40 minutes, turning about every 10 minutes. My Husband says - If you see the packs start to puff up, turn 1 more time and they should be done in about 10 minutes!!! We really hope you enjoy this as much as we do!!! Even our 4 year old loves it!!!
Happy Camping!!!

Pork Chop Pockets

pork chops (for how ever many there are)
cream of mushroom soup (condensed) either golden or regular
minute rice (uncooked)
small amount of water

Pull aluminum foil to over fit the pork chop because you will be
adding. Place one pork chop on the at least two table spoons of rice on top and then the same amount of soup on top of that. drizzle
with some water. At this point you can also add any seasoning you like.
Fold the foil into a package. Usually, the packs will let you
know they are done when steam tries to escape. (normal cooking time is about 30 minutes

Foil Favorite

1 lb. skinless polish sausage cut in 1" pieces
3 potatoes, peeled & diced
1 onion, diced
1/2 cup baby carrots
1/4 head of green cabbage, shredded
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup of margarine

Cut approx. 12" X 12" square aluminum foil.
Layer the vegetables and polish sausage in
square and add approx. 1/4 cup of water (or
use ice cubes) per package. Leave enough
room to bring the foil to the top and fold and
seal. Then do the same with the ends. Repeat
until all vegetables/sausage have been used.
Cook on grill on low approx. 1/2 hour. The carrots seem to take the longest time.

This is excellent warmed up too. If camping,
can be eaten out of the foil to save on cleanup.
My family loves it!

Campfire Pizza

dough:2 cups self-raising flour
1-2 knobs of butter
some water
tomatoes puree
other toppings

Mix the flour with the butter, add enough water to make a dough. Pat this dough into a base and put the tinfoil on some ashes. Cook the bases on the tinfoil and add the toppings of your choice. Wrap in the tinfoil and place back on the ashes.
The bases can be baked at home in advance and try experimenting with herbs in the tomatoes puree.
