Cooking for a group in the comforts of your home can be a lot fun, but cooking for that same group outdoors while camping is a much different story. There is no oven, ample counter space or fridge, just a grill/campfire, picnic table and cooler. But some pretty tasty creations are still feasible – especially for lunch. Yes you could just break out a loaf of bread, slap down some deli meat and cheese and call it a day, but that’s for amateurs. If you want to take the sandwich up a notch, these 10 sandwich recipes are perfect to feed a hungry group of campers.
