Top Camping Meals that Are Easy to Prepare

Nothing could ever come close to the experience of relaxing under the starry summer night sky with your best pals while you swap stories and roast marshmallows in the crackling fire. Camping is one of the many activities that families or friends can do all-year-round.

What Are the Top Camping Meals that Are Easy to Prepare?

Campfire Cooking | Veteran Car DonationsWhether or not you love cooking, choosing which foods to bring can make or break your camping experience. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a chef to whip up delicious camping meals that you and your fellow campers will surely enjoy. To give you a head start, Veteran Car Donations gives you the top camping meals that are easy to prepare:

  1. Scrambled Eggs

You might think that this food is too common if not boring. But it’s actually one of the easiest foods to prepare, especially when you lack cooking equipment. Just crack an egg before you go camping, cook it in a frying pan, and store it in an easy-to-carry and spill-proof container and you’re all set!

  1. Chorizo

While you shop for the things you need for camping, it also helps if you get yourself some yummy Spanish sausages. Chorizo is a perfect meal for campers since it has a long shelf life, needs no preparation, and can be eaten straight from the pack. You can even slice it up and mix it with some of the eggs you’ve prepared to make an omelet.

  1. Granola

Granola is the perfect snack for campers. While you can easily buy a pack at a store, it pales in comparison to the taste of fresh granola made over a campfire. Granola consists of rolled oats, nuts, honey or brown sugar, and sometimes puffed rice. The snack food is baked until it is crisp, toasted, and golden brown.

  1. Pancakes

Aside from the fact that they’re easy to make, pancakes are also a much prettier dish to serve. You can make your pancake batter beforehand; put it on a Ziplock resealable plastic bag or a spill-free holder, then place it in a cooler. When it’s time to cook it, you can just unseal the Ziplock and squeeze the batter out and into the pan.

  1. Tinned Fruits

If you’re looking for the perfect desserts, tinned fruits are the easiest to prepare. You can just mix the fruits, add a bit of milk, and, voila, you now have a salad. You can also add a little twist by sprinkling some chocolate and hazelnut bits on it.

You wouldn’t want your food to get spoiled even before you hit the road. Be sure to pack a cool icebox to store your food into. As soon as you have your bare essentials ready, you’re all set for your camping adventure!
