Foil Pack potatoes and onions.

Cedar Plank fish (Salmon).

Tin Can Ground Beef, Onions, and potatoes.

Don't think that you have to deny yourself good food. Take some big fat juicy steaks, poke them with a stick, and cook them in that campfire!

We will have a small propane grill, of course the campfire itself, and I just bought an 8 piece outdoor cook ware set with stock pot w/ lid, saute pan, sauce pan with lid, and coffee kettle (cant go without my coffee!! ;)) and as well utensils. Unfortunately its not cast iron but the enamel ones.

What is the tin can beef onion and potatoe one?? Thats sounds yummy!

You mean cook the steak on a stick.....?? That does remind me though of kebabs, which I hadnt thought of.:a1:

This is our first camping trip as adults so we are still building up on all our gear but the other family we are going with are avid campers so I'm sure they will have some cooking equipment as well.

Your grill can be used like a stove, so the sky's the limit. Like I said, just because you are living primitively doesn't mean you have to eat that way!

I did find a cool quick recipe for breakfast....place a pre-cooked sausage link on a stick and wrap dough of a canned biscuit around the sausage and cook over fire until dough is lightly browned and sausage is warmed through.

I thought it sounded fun to do :)

You can do it in aluminum foil, but I like using old and clean tin cans.

In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, diced onions, garlic, cubed potatoes (small cubes, about 1/4”). Season well. Stuff the mixture into clean tin cans with no label and cover with foil. Place near the edge of your fire……some put them IN the fire. Rotate every few minutes, and within 15-20 minutes (depending on how close it is to the fire) it’s cooked. Scrape onto a plate or onto toasted bread.

It’s really like hash.


One of these turns your campfire into a stove if you have camp pots and pans. You can cook anything with something like this. We use it for a percolator coffee pot and a skillet for eggs and bacon. They sell these at Wal-Mart for like 9 bucks.

That's the thing, so many people think that camp food means beanie-wienies. Just break outside of that box. Think about what you like to eat at home, then just adapt that to your new setting. You have keep cold things cold in a cooler, and you have to cook things a little differently, but it's easy if you just plan things out a little more than you do at home.

Thanks you guys these are great! Keep them coming if you have them.:clap:

I didn't want our meals all TOO simple because of just as you said Robsanx, but at the same time I know I need to watch how many groceries we will need to take esp ones that need to be chilled. We are only taking one cooler for our family so I need to keep in mind space.

Tell you a trick we do - get yourself a Tupperware/Rubbermaid liquid container, the kind you would carry milk or tea in. It has a flip top.

At home, in a large mixing bowl, whisk 6 or more eggs with salt and pepper. Pour the beat eggs into the container and stick it in your ice chest. For breakfast, heat a skillet with a bit of oil, then pour some eggs from the container for simple scrambled eggs.

This is the container.
