Unique And Delicious Camp Stove Recipes
We live in Arizona and deal with camping without fire when conditions are hot and dry preventing us from using hot coals and having campfire open flames. So, I create recipes that can easily transition between a camp stove and a campfire so we don’t end up eating cold beans from a can and hot dogs directly out of the cooler when a fire ban is in effect! LOL
Baking On A Camp Stove
A quick note about the recipes here that are baked: If you are using your camp stove and Dutch oven to bake recipes, you will need a dome and heat diffuser plate to properly circulate the air up the walls and over the top of the Dutch oven as well as below the bottom.
If you have never used this equipment before, I have an entire post with a VIDEO to show you how to cook with a Dutch oven dome and heat diffuser plate.
Savory Breakfast Recipes
Don’t you just love the creamy texture and smooth flavor of a California avocado? Those little gems are not just for your guacamole! These California Breakfast Burritos start with a tortilla that is piled high with eggs, chorizo, beans, potatoes and cheese. Then they are finished off with fresh cilantro and avocado slices.
This entire meal is made in one skillet and includes eggs cooked sunny side up and scrambled along with sausage, onion, bell pepper and potatoes. Top the skillet breakfast off with a bit of cheddar cheese and green onion and you have a hearty breakfast. Cowboys usually cook over campfires and can be cooked that way or over your propane camp stove.
Want to walk and eat as you explore the great outdoors? This is a simple camp stove meal that’ll have you enjoying every bite as you stroll around camp admiring the sunrise!
These quick breakfast sandwiches can be made for one or scaled up for a crowd! We like making them with bacon but you can just use a slice of deli ham to make them even quicker if you’re in a hurry to get on to your activities for the day.
While you’re frying your bacon for these sandwiches, make a few extra slices so you can quickly put together this Bacon Basil Tomato Ciabatta Sandwich Recipe for lunch or dinner.
These breakfast bowls are healthy, yummy and FAST! There is so much protein in this quick breakfast including black beans, eggs and cheese but the real flavor comes from the salsa and fresh avocado!
We love nachos! Yes, even for breakfast! This morning meal is fun, fresh and filling! The breakfast part starts with eggs and cheese but it gets really exciting when you add tortilla chips, black beans, fresh avocado, tomatoes, cilantro and sour cream!
10. Hobo Eggs
If you have 8 minutes and 3 simple ingredients, you can make this surprisingly delicious breakfast! The egg is fried in buttered bread creating a grilled cheese-type of flavor and texture that tastes amazing!
We call this simple breakfast burrito a “walkable feast” in your hand! So much flavor comes from the chorizo sausage you could almost roll that up in the tortilla and call it good … but don’t … because when you add a bit of onion and cheese to the eggs, you made an amazingly delicious and easy breakfast. The finishing touch is a bit of cilantro and sour cream.
If you don’t have one, we’ve got tips so you can find the best Dutch oven for camping.
Making simple scrambled eggs are great options to feed small groups or large crowds. These are spruced up by sautéing a bit of onion in butter then adding the eggs and some cheese. Topping with fresh parsley gives a nice finishing touch but it is totally optional.

Sweet Breakfast Meals
Eliminating refined sugar from your diet? Try these pancakes that get their sweetness from ripe bananas. They are delicious, easy, vegan and healthy!

This is one of our camping food recipes requiring no refrigeration. It uses all non-perishable ingredients from your pantry! The secret to making “just add water” pancakes taste really yummy is by topping them with interesting sauces. This one is made by adding brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon to canned peaches.
I like making this yummy French toast over my campfire but you can also make it using a camp stove. The Texas toast is the beginning of a great recipe. Dip the slices in the egg mixture then cook them in butter on a cast iron griddle for a wonderful taste and texture. Just make sure you have even heat under the griddle and be prepared to move the slices around for even toasting if you have hot spots directly above the stove’s burners.
We have a really fun version for campfire cooking too. Try this Pie Iron French Toast for the camper who likes cooking on sticks!
25. Camping Pancakes
Just-add-water pancakes are one of the easiest breakfast meals you can make. They are really special when you toss a little fresh fruit with sugar and use that to top these golden brown hotcakes!
I like making this festive French toast for special occasions. You can cut the bread into different shapes (like hearts, stars and Christmas trees) for holiday camping. The cinnamon and cocoa powder add a ton of flavor to the brioche bread. And, the sweet cream cheese glaze is a yummy finishing touch.
You’ll need a dome and heat diffuser plate to bake this easy, sweet and slightly crispy pull apart bread. It’s one of our easy recipes that will be ready in about 15 minutes.
This easy oven-baked pancake starts with frying bacon in a Dutch oven. Then, you pour a batter over top of the bacon and its grease. A fluffy, custard-like pancake is formed during the baking process (you’ll use your dome and heat diffuser plate here). Serve it with a sweet syrup for a traditional flavor or a savory salsa to give it a twist.
This plastic bag pancakes hack lets you mix the batter right in the bag then pipe it out into the pan. Just prepare the dry mixture at home and mix in the wet ingredients at camp.
Lunch And Dinner
This pasta dinner uses bottom-only heat. You cook the pasta right in the sauce … No need to boil water in a large pot to cook pasta then drain it! It’s one of my favorite one pot meals that’s perfect for stovetop cooking or cooking over campfire coals. And, it’ll be on your table in 30 minutes!

Pasta is a great food to cook on camp stoves … especially if you have one pot going for the sauce and another one going for the pasta. This creamy pasta recipe makes my normally-low-carb Dad ask for seconds!

Shrimp is such a fast-cooking protein which is awesome when you want to eat and run off to your next campsite activity.
