Camping trips are always better with good eats! And when we can keep the recipes simple, there’s more time to enjoy the outdoors. Check out these genius food hacks you’ll want to remember for your next getaway.
Cinnamon Bun Hack
It doesn’t get any easier than this: purchase (or make) some cinnamon buns ahead of time. Bring some skewers. Roast the buns on the skewers over your campfire and they’ll be gooey and delicious in no time!
Pre-Crack the Eggs
Crack your eggs and store them in a plastic bottle. You won’t have to worry about them breaking, and they’ll be all scrambled up and ready to cook!

We’ll let the video speak for itself:
BYO Pancake Batter
Make it ahead of time & store it in a plastic bag. When you’re ready to whip up some breakfast, just cut a hole in the corner of the bag, and pipe your pancakes right onto your camping stove.
Take Your Roasted Marshmallows to the Next Level
Very simple, very delicious. FIRST roast your marshmallow and SECOND, dip it in some Baileys (be sure to follow the steps in that order!).
Kind of like s’mores in a cone. Stuff chocolate, marshmallows, peanut butter cups – whatever you want, really – in a cone. Wrap it up in foil and roast over your campfire for 5 mins. Pure YUM.
Healthy Campfire Snacks
We can’t eat roasted marshmallows for every meal. Check out these healthier options – and don’t put the tinfoil away yet:
