Pastrami Reuben Sandwich Camping Recipe

Pastrami Reuben Sandwich by CampingForFoodies features a toasted sandwich cut in half and stacked on a white plate set on a worn picnic table. The brown and golden white swirls in the marble rye grilled bread are stuffed with layers of reddish, pink pastrami deli meat, white Swiss melted cheese, creamy Thousand Island dressing and crunchy sauerkraut. Next to the sandwich is a small bowl of coleslaw, a glass of fresh squeezed lemonade with a lemon slice is in the background.

Hot grilled sandwiches make easy camping dinners for two when you serve them with a nice side salad and a few gourmet pickles. This is one uses just six simple ingredients, requires almost no prep and cooks in just 15 minutes. It’s one of our family’s favorite camp stove recipes when we are camping during fire restrictions and can’t cook with campfires or charcoal.


Chorizo Quesadilla

Chorizo Quesadilla by CampingForFoodies features two golden brown crispy tortillas that are sandwiched together and stuffed with a meat, potato and cheese mixture. The toasted quesadilla is sliced into wedges that are set on a red camping plate. A large scoop of red, white and green colored salsa and large dollop of creamy white sour cream is next to the wedges. The entire plate is sprinkled with bright green fresh cilantro which is lit by a setting afternoon sun.

When you cook meat that is pre-seasoned, half of the work is already done for you. There is so much flavor in Chorizo sausage, it’s a great protein for Mexican flavored meals. This easy quesadilla is made using only one skillet.


Grilled Chicken Nuggets Recipe

Grilled Chicken Nuggets Recipe by CampingForFoodies features a blue camping plate filled with golden brown chicken nuggets. The char marks and caramelized bbq sauce glisten in the sun. Golden brown French fries sit behind the meat alongside a blue bowl filled with coleslaw in a creamy dressing.

I like this recipe because you can cut the chicken and mix the spices at home. Then, at camp you brine for a half hour and cook in just 10 minutes! You don’t have to stop at the Chick-fil-A drive-through to get some yummy chicken nuggets when you can make this copycat meal at camp!


Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese by CampingForFoodies features golden brown crispy bacon wrapped around a grilled cheese sandwich that is set on a blue camping plate. A fork and knife are being used to slice the sandwich as golden yellow cheddar cheese oozes from the center of the sandwich onto the plate.

Sandwiches don’t get much more exciting than when they’re wrapped in bacon! This ooey, gooey, cheesy, bacon sandwich is easy to make, watch my VIDEO to see how!


Camping Pancakes

Easy Camping Pancakes by CampingForFoodies features a blue camping plate filled with golden brown pancakes topped with bright red strawberries served on the side with spicy breakfast sausage patties, the plate is sitting on a campfire grate, in the background on the same grate is a black cast iron griddle filled with more pancakes and sausage patties.

When you make just-add-water pancakes, you can easily prepare the exact amount of servings you need. They taste extra special when you serve them with fresh fruit tossed in a bit of sugar rather than just a regular pancake syrup. For these hotcakes, it’s all about the topping!


Pellet Smoked Short Ribs

Pellet Smoked Short Ribs by CampingForFoodies features a blue camping plate filled with food ready to be served at the campsite. The English-style cut short ribs have a golden brown color after being smoked in a pellet grill. Next to the ribs are smoked green beans with bacon and fluffy mashed potatoes sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.

If you have a portable pellet grill smoker, let it do all the hard work to make these restaurant-quality, fall-off-the-bone tender, beef short ribs. You only need 6 simple ingredients (and two are salt and pepper)!


Chuckwagon Sandwich Recipe

Hobo Eggs

Hobo Eggs Recipe by CampingForFoodies features an egg cooked in buttered toast that is sitting on a blue camping plate with a few slices of bacon on the side and text over the image that reads hobo eggs.

Three basic ingredients and 8 minutes are all you need to make this simple and surprisingly delicious breakfast. You fry an egg in the center of buttered bread that creates a similar flavor and texture to grilled cheese rather than buttered toast … YUM!


Camping Breakfast Sandwiches

Camping Breakfast Sandwiches by CampingForFoodies features an egg, bacon and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. The slices of thick crispy bacon are overflowing the sandwich, the meat is draped over the fried egg and melted yellow cheddar cheese.

There is no better way to start your day than making these quick and simple morning muffins filled with an egg, cheese and bacon. You can make the egg any way you like, and swap out different meats to change it up a bit. If you use deli ham or Canadian bacon instead of bacon or breakfast sausage, you’ll only have to cook the egg! This is just one of our favorite camping breakfast ideas!


BLT Camping Wraps

BLT Wraps For Camping by CampingForFoodies features a blue camping plate with a wheat tortilla wrap cut in half and stuffed with a mixture of green chopped salad, crispy bacon pieces and chopped tomatoes tossed in mayonnaise.

When you remember comfort foods from your childhood, don’t you think of bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches? Well, these BLT wraps are a deconstructed and reinvented twist on the old classic. I’m guessing you are going to LOVE them!

Camp Cooking Tip: Anytime you are making bacon for breakfast, make a few extra pieces so you can throw together a quick lunch or dinner without having to cook!

Easy To Scale Down For Two

Because we usually camp with other couples and because many families have four members, I create most of my recipes to feed 4 campers. But, when we camp alone, I easily scale these recipes back to feed two. Here are some of our favorites.

Cajun Chicken Foil Packets

Cajun Chicken Foil Packets by CampingForFoodies features a silver-colored piece of tinfoil used as a bowl to hold a serving of Cajun chicken. The pieces of white cauliflower, green broccoli, red bell pepper and white onion slices compliment the chicken and andouille sausage pieces. A serving of white rice is behind the food and the foil packet is set on a blue camping plate with green shrubbery in the background.

This quick 30-minute dinner is keto-friendly, low carb and gluten free. But, it’s the FLAVOR that makes this easy, veggie-packed recipe taste so amazing. Plus, there is almost no cleanup when the meal is over!

The awesome thing about making flatbread pizza is the ability to change the flavor profile by swapping out the toppings. This one has a fusion of Greek and Italian flavors that are easily achieved by using baby bella mushrooms, basil pesto, mozzarella cheese and kalamata olives.


Raw Veggie Wraps Recipe

These delicious, easy, vegan pancakes are quick to prepare and don’t use refined sugar. You can reheat leftovers for another breakfast or turn them into a yummy dessert. These are so easy to make at the campsite, there’s no need to make them in advance. But, if you really want to, you can make them at home and freeze them. Then, at camp, you can just defrost and reheat in a foil packet over a campfire or in an electric toaster in your RV.


Shrimp And Asparagus Foil Packs

Shrimp And Asparagus Foil Packs by CampingForFoodies features a piece of shiny aluminum foil set on a table outside on a sunny day.

Green and white basil mayonnaise is spread on the inside of the top and bottom buns.

Make extra bacon for breakfast so you can quickly assemble these easy BBT sandwiches for lunch or dinner. Camp Cooking Tip: Make a big breakfast that includes bacon at the beginning of your trip.

The first time I made this meal for him, my brother-in-law said this was one of the BEST MEALS HE ATE IN HIS LIFE so it quickly became one of his favorite camping dinner recipes. As written, it serves 4 but is easily scaled back for 2. Camp Cooking Tip: If you have leftover fish from dinner, re-invent it into a dip and serve with crackers.

Ham And Cheese Salad Stuffed Tortillas

Ham And Cheese Salad Stuffed Tortilla No-Cook Camp Recipe - Camping For Foodies .com

Unless a salad is really substantial, my husband will only consider it a “side dish” when it’s served to him. I make it a main course by tossing it and wrapping it in a tortilla. The great thing about salad wraps is you can change the salad dressing, meat and cheese to get tons of different flavor profiles from the same basic recipe.


One Pot Cast Iron Fish Camping Recipe

Some are covered in cinnamon sugar and others are covered in white powdered sugar. A big tree and blue sky are in the background of this campsite.

This 3-ingredient sweet treat uses refrigerator biscuits so you can make as many as you want. One package usually contains 8 biscuits so instead of making 8 donuts, make 2 for each of you (because really, who can stop at eating only 1 donut???) and bake the other 4 biscuits according to the package directions, then top them with jam or sausage gravy for breakfast!


Hungry Man Breakfast

Hungry Man Breakfast by CampingForFoodies features a black cast iron skillet on a propane camp stove filled with a hearty breakfast ready to be served.

Make this fun morning campfire meal with pie irons. The Texas-style, thick and fluffy French toast is spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.


Repurposed Leftovers

I don’t really use the word repurposed, I use “re-inventable” to describe how I make some of our favorite family-sized meals when I am camping with only one other person. My husband HATES LEFTOVERS unless I re-invent them into something different for the second go-round. Here’s how I make some of our most beloved recipes and serve them as two different meals.

Campfire Dutch Oven Chili Recipe

Campfire Chili by CampingForFoodies features a bowl of chili topped with cheddar cheese, sour cream, diced onions and jalapeno peppers with a spoon and slice of crusty bread ready to be served at the campsite.

There are a couple of ways to make one of the most beloved winter camping recipes into a meal for two. You can prepare this chili as a make ahead dinner and freeze it in portion sizes with two servings. Then, just take the amount you need to the campsite, defrost and reheat for a quick meal.

Alternatively, you can make the entire recipe at the campsite and eat bowls of chili the first night then re-invent the leftovers into chili-mac, chili dogs, chili burritos or chili-topped eggs for breakfast that can be served on plates or wrapped in tortillas for breakfast burritos.


Campfire Dutch Oven Jalapeño Cornbread

Campfire Cornbread by CampingForFoodies features a golden brown freshly-baked jalapeno and cornmeal bread in a black cast iron Dutch oven sitting on the ground at a campsite with brown pine needles in the background.

I would start World War 3 in my family if I didn’t serve cornbread with chili! LOL This is one of the best Dutch oven baked goods because it makes a great side for chili, soup and stew. The leftovers are wonderful as breakfast or dessert after adding a little butter and honey.


Bacon And Cheese Dutch Oven Quiche

Bacon And Cheese Quiche Dutch Oven Camp Recipe - Camping For Foodies .com

This quiche is one of my favorite Dutch oven camping recipes because it is so versatile. When camping with only two people, we enjoy this recipe as a hot morning breakfast. Then, refrigerate the leftovers and eat them cold the next day with a fresh salad for lunch or dinner.


Mexican Three Bean Salad

Mexican Three Bean Salad by CampingForFoodies features a white serving bowl filled with canned garbanzo, black and pinto beans, yellow kernels of canned Mexican style corn, green chilies and red peppers,

This is one of our vegetarian camping recipes that serves 6 as a side dish. So, when camping as a pair, save the leftovers to use in grilled bean burritos the next day!


Rosemary Spiced Nuts

Rosemary Spiced Nuts Camping Snacks Recipe by CampingForFoodies

We love munching on camping snacks during our trips! These spiced nuts are incredibly tasty and store well in a sealed container. They serve 4-6 so when you are camping with only two people you will have leftovers, and I’m guessing you’ll be happy you don’t have to share them the next day!


Campfire Hot Cocoa

Cool nights around the campfire are perfect for sipping a warm cup of cocoa! This homemade mix stores well and can make up to 16 servings, one single cup at a time!
