This article features a few yummy recipes for cooking with a propane stove, charcoal or a campfire while camping. If you have never tried these recipes, I must tell you that there is nothing quite like a yummy soup for dinner as it gets a little chilly when you're camping.

Before I tried these recipes, I never knew what I was missing. Sure, there is a little bit of extra planning involved, and definitely some cleanup, but these recipes will help to make a truly memorable camping experience.

Breakfast Recipes

Everything Bagels with Egg, Bacon, Tomatoes and Smoked Gouda Cheese

Ingredients:

1 bag everything bagels (these have sesame, poppyseed, and other types of seeds on the outside)

1-2 eggs per person

1 fresh tomato, sliced (you’ll use 1 slice per person)

1 pkg. bacon (plan for about 2 pieces per person)

1 pkg. (7oz.) of smoked Gouda cheese

Oil for frying pan

Tools/utensils:

Propane stove

2 small frying pans

Knife for slicing

Prepare:

1. Slice tomatoes and cheese first. Cooking on the propane stove goes fast, so you want to have these ready. The cheese comes in a thick wax coating. Use the knife to puncture the coating and peel it off.

2. In this recipe, I used 3 eggs (for two people). Beat eggs in bowl with fork. Light propane stove. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of pan. When oil is hot (it will ripple on surface when it’s hot and won’t take long to heat), pour egg into pan and let it cook without mixing. When it’s browned on the underside, flip ½ of the mixture onto itself, creating an egg patty. Turn over about every 15-30 seconds as each side gets cooked. Turn off heat.

3. While oil is heating, pour a little bit of oil (about 1-2 tbsp) into the other pan and heat. Place strips of bacon in to start cooking. Each side will take about 1-2 minutes to brown. In fact, when one side was browned, I took it off the stove to flip sides. The bacon will cook really quickly, you will need to watch it carefully. When bacon is browned, turn off heat.

4. Divide egg patty into equal portions. Place on bagels. Top with cheese, bacon and a slice of tomato.

5. Enjoy!

Useful tips and tricks

  • When camping, I don't recommend using lots of meat, unless you have access to a refrigerator. It can be difficult keeping everything cool in a cooler.
  • I will pack bacon and hot dogs at the bottom of a cooler because they lie flat and the cold air from the ice sinks to the bottom.
  • When filling your cooler with ice, put it in reusable storage containers. Fill them with water and freeze or ice from the grocery store. They will keep everything from getting wet and can later double as food storage.
  • Cast iron cookware is a fabulous choice for camp cooking. It's durable, you get an extra dose of iron, heats evenly and you can take it right back to your kitchen.
  • I recommend "E-Z Lite" charcoal for camp grilling. They don't take much effort to light and cooking will be easier.
  • Use leftovers from these meals to make other meals. The veggie soup, because it's a "thick" soup, can be used to make yummy wraps for lunches. Apple crisp can double as a sweet breakfast treat.
  • When you use a propane stove, the burner farthest from the propane source tends to cook at a slightly lower temperature.
  • If it's cold enough at night, you can store food in the Dutch oven, too. Just keep it away from easy animal access.
  • Biodegradable hand-sanitizer is a must. It helps keep everything sanitized and doesn't use alcohol to do it.

Breakfast Burrito

Ingredients:

1 pkg. tortillas

1 pkg. (7 oz.) smoked Gouda cheese (I used this as a leftover from the bagel recipe)

1 jar salsa

1 avocado

1-2 eggs per person

1 pkg. bacon – 2 strips per person

1 can (15 oz.) Southwestern Ranchero Beans (refried beans and/or black beans also work)

Cumin for seasoning

Tools/Utensils:

Propane stove

3 pans (1 for egg, 1 for bacon, and 1 for beans; you can use two pans, but you’ll have to wash one out and alternate during cooking)

Prepare:

(You can adjust the amounts above according to how many people you need to serve. 1 can will serve about three people, and each person needs about two cheese slices per burrito.)

1. Slice cheese and avocado.

2. In a cup or bowl, beat eggs with a fork.

3. Get bacon ready for cooking. Open can of beans and place in 3rd pan.

4. Pour oil into the two skillets. You want enough to coat the bottom of the pan for the eggs, and about 1-2 tbsp. for the bacon.

5. Heat both pans. Add in bacon. As it’s cooking, add eggs to other pan.

6. These will cook quickly; stay vigilant. When eggs and bacon are done, remove from heat.

7. Place beans on stove and heat, stirring constantly. When they come to a low boil, remove from heat.

8. Spoon eggs onto tortillas, top with bacon, cheese, salsa and beans. Sprinkle on some cumin – not too much – about ¼ tsp on each burrito. Place avocado either on burritos or on the side. Enjoy.

Lunch Recipes

These are basic suggestions for lunch. Often times, we are on the go during the day on camping trips. To save time and space, I make yummy sandwiches that I know people will enjoy. We often do not eat a lot of meat while on camping trips because it can be difficult to keep it cool enough.

Cheese and Spinach Sandwiches

Ingredients:

1 pkg. fresh-leaf spinach (you can substitute lettuce here)

1 pkg. cream cheese (you can substitute regular sliced cheese or even Gouda cheese here)

1 fresh tomato

1 pkg. Sourdough bread

Prepare:

1. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on two slices of bread.

2. Top with leafy spinach leaves.

3. Add a slice of tomato

4. Enjoy!

Ideas for sides (these can also serve as snacks between meals):

Kettle chips

Edamame (still in pods and then break them open to eat the yummy soybeans)

Nectarines, apples or similar fruit

Sunflower seeds

Carrot and celery sticks

Halved avocado, sprinkled with a bit of salt

Ants on a log (celery sticks with peanut butter spread on them, topped with raisins)

Other sandwich ideas:

Kids love peanut butter and jelly. Try varying it up with different flavors of jelly. You can also try Nutella - a hazelnut-flavored spread.

Dinner Recipes

The Dutch oven is a really valuable tool to use for making dinner dishes. They can go on the propane stove, over charcoal or over the campfire (though I recommend a tripod for direct, over the fire cooking). You can adapt many recipes for the Dutch oven.

Dutch Oven Cheese and Vegetable Soup With Rolls

Ingredients:

Cheese and Vegetable Soup

1 pkg. veggie crumbles (Again, I don’t use that much meat in general, but on camping trips, it can be challenging storing meat at the proper temperature, so I often cook with veggie crumbles. If these don’t stay frozen in the cooler, they should be fine as long as they stay cool.)

1 pkg. (8 oz.) mozzarella cheese

1 pkg. (6 oz.) Parmesan cheese

2 lbs. mixed vegetables of your choice; I used a package with green beans, carrots, and corn

½ stick of butter (approx. 4 tbsp)

Garlic salt (enough for about 1 tbsp)

Turmeric spice (enough for about 1 tsp)

Water

1 pkg. Parkerhouse (or similar) rolls in foil pan

Tools/utensils:

Charcoal/grill

Dutch oven

Slotted spoon

Prepare:

1. Mix together the veggie crumbles, mozzarella, Parmesan, vegetables, garlic salt and turmeric in Dutch oven. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the Dutch oven to a depth of ¼- ½ inch. Place spoonfuls of butter on top of the mixture.

2. Place Dutch oven directly over about 16 hot coals. Cook until the soup starts steaming and the cheese melts.

3. Remove about ½ of the coals (I like to use these "extra" coals to start a regular campfire) and continue cooking until carrots get tender.

4. Remove from coals. Keep cover on soup.

5. As an optional step, you can keep the lid off and pour off excess water. If you like a more soupy texture, skip this step.

6. Let cool with cover on while you make the rolls.

Prepare Rolls:

1. Take rolls out of their foil pan. Slightly butter the bottom of the skillet.

2. Place rolls into oiled skillet and cover. Cast iron skillets are best to use here because they heat a lot more evenly.

3. Place directly onto hot coals that you used for the Dutch oven. Heat for about 15-20 mins. while the soup cools. The bottom of the rolls will brown before the top does. If you feel like turning the rolls to help them cook more evenly, you can try. I prefer not to because I don’t like to have the top browned too much.

Enjoy! This meal serves about 8-10 people. If you don’t have that many people, it makes for a great dinner for a couple of days at camp.

      teaches - getting a Dutch oven has been one of the most incredible, versatile things I have in my kitchen. In the winter, I use it on the wood stove. In the summer, I take it camping. It's a great tool and I swear I'll never be without one again - I had no idea what I was missing until I got this. :D

      Dirt Farmer - oh man, this camping trip happened last week. Before I did this, I just stuck with beans and burritos for dinner or scrambled eggs and a piece of bread for breakfast - woefully un-inventive. But, when I decided to plan some nicer meals and use the Dutch oven, it was like a whole new world opened up. Now, I find there is nothing that compares to a hearty meal made from scratch at the campground. Yum! Thanks for stopping by. :)

      Nice! I like all these camp recipes, especially the apple crisp. Besides s'mores, I don't think I've ever made any other real desserts at a campsite, so this should be a fun recipe to try next time I go camping! Thanks a lot for sharing. :)

      Don't worry, I do have 1 cheat meal a week, it actually helps with dieting in my opinion, it kind of tricks the body. I could certainly go for a good dutch over pizza. I think I could probably come up with a healthy dutch over meal honestly. Perhaps it's time to go to the lab and experiment!

      Some of us really need someone to explain the very basics of cooking on the barbeque grill. I have mastered hamburgers, but that's about it. In my family, camp food tended to be cans of chilli heated on the grill, with som jalapenos thrown in (for breakfast). I also never mastered baking (canned) biscuits in a Dutch oven. They were edible, but not like the ones at home!

      I hope you'll keep the camp cooking stuff coming!

      Blueheron - thank you so much for coming by! Yes, I will definitely include more camping recipes - I'll write more the next time I go camping so I can get first-hand pics and good stuff like that. :P I appreciate your feedback. Have a great day!
