Winter Camping Recipes and Meals

Winter Camping RecipesThe colder the weather gets outside, the more I want to get out and go camping. There is just something invigorating about the crisp air and everyone loves cooking over an open fire. I even like to do a little dutch oven cooking.

Keeping warm in the winter camping months starts with getting a proper hot meal to warm you up from the inside. This is a running list of some of my favorite easy camping meals that are perfect for those cold days and nights at the campsite. I will be adding to the list continually, so be sure to check back often. And if you have a particular recipe or meal that you would like to see on this list, please leave a comment and let me know.

Meals Ready to Eat

While preparing your own meals is part of the fun of camping, sometimes the convenience of emergency meals is a perfect option. For instance, if you arrive at the campsite a little late and set up took longer than you thought, you might want to skip “cooking” an actual meal and grab a “Just add water” meal.

They come in so many varieties now and most of them are quite tasty.  I always pack at least 2-3 in case I need a quick meal or I’m just too tired toWinter Camping Recipes cook.  Cleanup is a breeze too.

How to Make Pizza at a Campsite

Homemade Pizza is the best

Who doesn’t love making their own pizza at home?  The great thing about pizza is that you can add whatever you want to make it your own.  But what about when you are camping?  Shouldn’t you get to enjoy a hot pizza around the fire?

I recently tried cooking pizza at our campsite at Fairfield Lake.  It turned out GREAT!

Ingredients you will need:DSCF2628

Pizza Sauce
Pita Bread
Shredded Cheese (Italian Blend)
Aluminum Foil
Cooking Spray
Toppings of your choice (I used canned mushrooms and sliced zucchini)

 

 

Here’s what you need to do:

Take one piece of aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.  Place one pita bread on the foil. Homemade PizzaAdd 2-3 tablespoons of pizza sauce and spread.  Add whatever toppings you like and then add plenty of cheese.

Next crimp the edges of the foil to create a “plate”.  Then cover with another piece of foil to create a dome (don’t let the top foil touch the pizza).  Place the foil package on the grill or on a grate over your campfire.  I used a mini Weber grill because we were under a fire ban at that park.

Cook over the fire, and check occasionally to see if cheese is melted and beginning to bubble. Remove from the fire and ENJOY!!
