Our Camping Cookout Menu

campfire cookout

Camping with the whole family is a little different than hiking days into the wilderness and living off whatever sticks and berries you can gather. Thankfully, the presence of young campers usually coincides with the presence of coolers that can store perishable food like eggs and ice over the weekend, as well as a good excuse to roast marshmallows. Bring a skillet that can sit over the campfire, extra water, and a few supplies, and you've got just about everything you need to cook hearty meals that will give your family the energy to get up the trails, across the lake, and into some serious camping fun.

  1. Camp Muesli
    About the easiest breakfast you can make while camping, this muesli will get energy up for a long day of hitting the trails!

  2. Trail Mix
    The stuff you buy in bags is usually full of preservatives, and often filled with candy. Go to a health food store or supermarket that sell nuts and dried fruit in bulk bins, and let your kids pick out the ingredients they want. Mix it all at home, and prep snack baggies for the "expedition."

  3. Campfire Mac 'n' Cheese
    On a chilly night around the campfire, there's nothing like this favorite comfort food to keep you warm.

  4. Ice Cream in a Bag
    Just because you're away from home doesn't mean you have to miss out on the creature comforts. Making ice cream on the go is a fun activity for little hands. Bonus: It burns off enough calories that eating the fruits of your labor doesn't feel as guilt inducing.

  5. S'more Roll-Ups
    What would a camping trip be without the quintessential campfire treat? Sure, there are only three ingredients in the classic recipe, but we've got some fun alternatives you must try.
