12 Easy Camping Recipes

Delicious Camping Recipes

When we head off in our caravan I like to be prepared and make sure I do the shop in advance. I tend to stick to the same things that I know will transport and keep well. But it is a bit predictable and our BBQ lacks a little originality.

So we put the word out that we were looking for some delicious and easy camping meals to revamp our campsite cuisine. The response was great so we’ve rounded up a dozen of the best camping recipes to inspire you in this post!

6. Campstove Curry

A nice easy curry and rice dish made on a camping stove. Lianne from AnklebitersAdventures tells us:

“We love a camp stove curry just chicken and a jar of sauce as it makes it much easier. We then use some boil in the bag rice too and job done!”

Maria from OneTinyLeap also votes for a good curry as an easy camping recipe.

“We always do a curry – easy to do different spice levels, and cater to vegetarian and vegans in the group. Poppadoms, onion bhajis, chutneys and parathas as a side.”

7. Witches Stew

Jade from MummiesWaiting tells us about their favourite recipe Witches Stew!

“We love witches stew! It’s bacon, sausages, baked beans and tinned tomatoes all thrown in a sauce pan and cooked. At the end we mix a bit of worchestershire sauce in and serve with a bap. It’s on our list because it’s so easy to make so perfect for the day you get there when you are tired from setting up.”

8. Freshly Caught Crayfish

Laura from the BreastestNews has a great idea for using freshly caught crayfish.

“We love a good easy camping recipe. We’re lucky where we camp in Scotland there’s a clean river nearby with crayfish. We hunt them in nets or by hand then cook up for a tasty dinner. I use a small camp stove and camping pot. Use the left over water to boil some rice and it tastes delicious.”
