Meals for Camping: Supper

  • by

Welcome back! Kind of crazy that’s it’s the second week in March already….is the year flying by for anyone else?

If you’re going camping and have zero clue what to do for supper, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re not interested in basic burgers and hot dogs, I’ll share some stuff I did last season and something I want to try this coming season. I am aiming to make them take as little energy as possible because who wants to expend all the energy making cooking? Not me, I want that energy for the fun stuff I have planned. Plus, a good lunch will keep us (*cough* me *cough*) from eating only snacks all day long.

If you’d like to check out my cooking gear, you can see my gear highlight here

Foil packet dinners

These are fairly simple and make for easy clean up. You can use whatever you feel like, so it can be used no matter how you choose/need to eat. I have my share of food intolerances/sensitivities so I keep them pretty basic.

This one was andouille chicken sausage, little potatoes, sweet peppers, and carrots. I put avocado oil in to prevent sticking to the foil and to keep the seasonings on. These are absolutely delicious cooked over the fire. It gives them some extra flavor. I have also made this in my pot if fire wasn’t an option, just nix the foil.

Shrimp and veggie boil

Speaking of cooking dinner in my pot, I made this once while on an adventure with my hiking buddy and they have requested it for several other occasions. Sometimes simple is delicious.

For this meal I used shrimp (peeled and deveined because I’m not cleaning shrimp poop or skins/tails), grape tomatoes, zucchini, butter, and seasonings. It cooks up fairly quickly so if you’re short on time and energy it’s something to try.

Pork chops and veggies

I went on a trip to Michigan years ago and decided to cook pork chops and potatoes on the tripod on the fire. It was some of the best damn pork we had ever had. My hiking buddy was skeptical as they hadn’t done that before, but I was confident in my fire goddess skills so they let me do my thing. No regrets!

You can also so this with chicken, steak, fish, or whatever protein strikes your fancy. Root vegetables work best, but anything goes.


Okay, so who doesn’t love a good kebab? They are just as versatile and adaptable as the foil packets and they cook up fairly quickly. Last time we made them, we used chicken, zucchini, onion, and peppers. They sit nicely on the fire grill/tripod and you can eat them right off the skewer, so less dishes 🙂

Camp nachos

These are basically the same as when you make them at home, just in a skillet over the fire. I haven’t made these myself, but am excited to bring my trusty cast iron skillet with me and have nacho night around the fire one night. Get yourself some tortilla (or in my case cassava) chips and load them up. Let the fire and the skillet do the work and enjoy!

Do you have any tried and true meals you like when you’re out in nature? Post them below.
