Hotdogs over the fire.
Grill corn on the cob with butter in foil. Same with potatoes. Well, any veggie, really.
Salads. Macaroni, potato and garden.
Smores for dessert. Compliments makes kits for cheap available at Freshco.
Have fun!

My family and I go camping most summers and this is what we usually cook while we're there:

For breakfast:

- Cereal or oatmeal

- Pancakes (prep your batter at home and put it in an empty/clean ketchup squeeze bottle)

- Bring eggs and make omelettes/scrambled eggs/sunny side up, and then fry some bacon/mini sausages and breakfast potatoes

- Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches

For lunch or dinner:

- Sandwiches, wraps, burritos (heated up in foil), quesadillas

- Salmon or chicken and veggies cooked in foil packets

- Kebabs, hamburgers, grilled meats, chili

- Minute Rice or pasta

- Grilled Veggies like peppers, zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms

- Salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and dressing)

Dessert and Snacks:

- Fruit or fruit salad

- Grilled pineapple

- Strawberries dipped in Nutella

- Popcorn, trail mix, nuts

- Roasted marshmallows/smores

- Nachos

Burgers and hotdogs cooked over the campfire and cheap as well!! Smores also make a good evening snack and so yummy!

I've always found that tinfoil dinners and tacos in a bag are huge hits. They're also cheap and easy when it comes time to clean up.

Thanks Chrissyann! We've been going camping for years now and would get bored of the typical hot dogs and hamburgers. So, we got a little creative over the years to please everyone's palates! lol

Baked potatoes, wrap in tin foil and throw into the fire, literally baked potato comes out great, open up sprinkle with salt, add some butter great tasting!
Hot dogs are quick and easy!! And budget friendly.

Treats and snacks and sweets marshmellows!!!! Smores so easy to make.

Easy things to cooked and things cooked ahead on Oct 13, 2015 @ 11:58 pm

I have taken my family on many camping trips and the best meals are the easiest as it gives everyone time to enjoy and pitch in.

Definitely hot dogs and hamburgers is on the list but also things like hamburg taco mix already cooked but just needs heating, spaghetti sauce premade. Crock pot cooking is a campers best friend if you have an electrical site.

Cold cuts are always a must as well as cut up fresh veg's in zip lock bags, washed fresh fruit.
