Camping Foods???

Monday, June 17, 2013

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My family (huge family) is going camping next month. I need some ideas for easy foods to make while out camping for 3 days. The only thing is there are 2 people who have food allergies...

1 is tomatoes.

2 is onions.

Can you guys help me out with some food ideas?

Thanks guys.

    My sister does breakfast tacos. Bacon, scrambled eggs, salssa, veggies, etc. Each person assembles their own.

Also grilled kebabs. Same thing -- put out the marinated cubed meat and an assortment of veggies. Let each person assemble his own.

Pasta salads can work if you can keep them cool.

There's always grilled burgers. If you ditch the buns, they actually aren't that bad as long as they aren't huge. Maybe use lettuce instead of the buns, make a wrap out of it.

I hadn't heard of the scrambled eggs in a bag, but I'll have to remember it.

I think most anything would work as long as you don't overdo the portions... Of course that is hard since camping always seems to make appetites go wild!

    Cut fruits and melons can be done ahead of time and put in ziplock bags and stowed away on ice...for easy fruit salads athat will be good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner :0)

    Omelets in zip lock bags.... couldn't be easier. Boil a big pot of water. Everyone takes a bag, cracks a couple eggs into it, adds whatever filling they want, and squishes it all up. Then after sucking all the air out of the bag and sealing it up tight, dump it in the water for 15 minutes or so. We've made omelets like this for 20 people with no fuss. It's great!

    When I went camping with a friend a while back, he made this fantastic foil wrapped chicken. You enclose the chicken in some foil with a tiny bit of beer (or maybe something different if there are kids???), you put it on the white hot embers (no fire!) and rotate it occasionally. It tasted deeeeelicous! You can do the same thing with potatoes. Of course chicken and potatoes aren't the best. Corn is great on the bbq but not the best healthwise....hmm...I will think on it :)

    I love making chicken sausages when I'm camping. They are tasty, they come in different flavors and they are lower calorie than pork sausage.
