Friday Favorites - Camping Food Edition

The scheduled topic for the 31 day blog challenge is the meaning of my business name. I'm not quite ready yet to disclose THAT much information about my personal life, meaning exactly where I live and work, so I'm skipping that one. Which is fine since today is Friday and Friday Favorites is a favorite link-up of mine!

I've got a bit of a theme to this edition of my favorites: Camping Food!

We went on our first camping trip this week since Danny was on his 4 days off and its kind of a slower time for me at work. There is a campground about 20 minutes from us and it was perfect to start the season. We didn't cook anything exciting this time, but I have high hopes for the rest of the season.

Typically our first night is easy food. Usually brats and pasta salad that I make the night before we leave, or mac & cheese that I cook in the camper. When I'm planning our meals, I usually try to come up with grill food. That way Danny has to cook and I don't haha.

This is a great list of foil packets that the Food Network came up with. We tried the combination of #20 and #21 on our Brown County weekend. It was delicious! I was fancy and bought seafood ravioli for the occasion.

Breakfast Casserole is one of our favorites. This can be made in a number of different ways by switching out the veggies or meat since the meat goes into the pan already cooked. You definitely want to make sure you spray the pan really well. This is great because it usually leaves enough for breakfast the next day!

Pancakes are also a great easy breakfast when you bring an electric skillet (which I tend to forget) and you get a mix that just needs water.

French Bread Pizza from A Thrifty Mom was easily my favorite last year. I love pizza. The older I get the more I love it too. Again, this is another recipe that can be made in different ways because of what it is. This was an easy first night meal when we paired it with a salad kit.

Other favorites are shish-ka-bobs with smoked sausage or polish sausage, hamburgers, and I like to make this Skinny Taste Buffalo Chicken Dip to share with everyone.

I've been meaning to share our favorite camping foods for the last 10 months, so I'm glad I finally got a chance to do so. I'm excited to branch out more this year and when I find something delicious I'll share!


  1. There's something about cooking while camping that I enjoy so much more than cooking at home! Lol. We have a quesadilla maker for over the fire that we enjoy. Also love the foil recipes and using a slow cooker! Great post idea!

  2. I have a list like this too... and a few cook books. I am always looking for fun stuff to make over a fire, those are some of the memories the kids will walk away with.
