13 Camping Recipes AKA Food Hacks For Your Next Trip

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!

Campfire French Toast

A breakfast favorite made campfire simple! Get the recipe here.

Quick & Easy Spinach Dip

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!).

Dessert Cones

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:

Just the Right Amount of Spice

Pack the spices you’ll need in tic-tac containers! Less waste & easy to pack.

Water Bottle Ice Packs

Freeze a bunch of water bottles ahead of time and store in a cooler. You’ll not only have ice/cooling devices readily available, but drinking water as they melt, too!

Jalapeño Popper DIP

You can even prep this ahead of time so it’s ready to go straight over the fire. Get the recipe here.

DIY Candles

Keep your campsite smelling fresh! All you need is an orange peel, olive oil and a lighter or matches. Quick tutorial here.

Pigs in a Blanket

Fan favorite and no oven needed! You can even do the (already minimal) prep ahead of time – check it out here.
