    Well this is a little difficult to answer, seeing as how I don’t know HOW you’re going to cook your food (My family has gas powered ovens, gas powered slow cookers, gas powered fryers, gas powered stoves, coffee pots, if it can be cooked, I’ve ate it on the river – I love campin’ with them)

    When we personally go – I only have a stove & a grill to make my food. I do a lot of boxed potatoes (like scalloped), and mac ‘n cheese.

    Here are some easy Ideas::

    B: Bacon/Eggs
    L: Cold Cut Sandwiches & potato salad
    D: American Chop Suey (chili mac) /Bagged Salad and S’Mores

    B: hash & eggs
    L: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches, fruit
    D: Cheeseburgers/Corn on the Cob and Campfire Apples

    Campfire Apples- Granny Smith apples cored/ fill with butter, cinnamon and sugar. Wrap in foil and place in campfire until soft.

    B: Pancakes (or Belgium waffles) & Sausages
    L: Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwiches & BC boxed taters
    D: Chicken Breasts marinated w/Italian Dressing, Stove Top Stuffing/Corn on Cob/Cranberry Sauce and S/Mores

    B: Omelet in a bag & bacon
    L; Tuna Melts, salad
    D: Kabobs, Mashed Potatoes, Apple Sauce & Chocolate Marshmallow Bananas

    Slice a banana down the middle, put in a couple of marshmallows and some Hershey bar. Wrap in foil and place in campfire until chocolate & mallow melts ~optional idea
    Make a foil pocket, add a cut up bannana, marshmellows,and m&ms. Close pocket and roast on the fire. It is really yummy
    B: Scrambled Egg Omelet w/bacon bits and cheese & English Muffins~ in a ziplock baggie & boil..
    L: Spaghettios or Soup, & salad
    D: Lobster Dinner (out)

    Friday (leftovers day):
    B: Pancakes & Bacon (or sausage~whatever is leftover)
    L: Hobo Pies (with leftover coldcuts ~ in the fire cooker thing on a stick..the pie guy)
    Dinner: Ham steaks, rice, pineapple chunks, S’Mores

    Cereal & fruit
    Pack up and leave

    Brown bears
    crescents or biscuits
    melted butter
    Cover the stick with the tin foil, as smoothly as possible. Wrap the crescent roll tightly, around the stick. Cook over the fire until it turns a golden brown. Poor the melted butter over the crescent roll. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over buttered roll. Hold the stick and push the brown bear off onto a plate. Enjoy!
    Comments: When you are cooking, if it starts to fall off of the stick, pull it away from the fire, wrap around the stick more tightly and continue cooking.
    Optionally add jelly on the inside
    Dump Cake 1 stick butter 32 oz. jar applesauce (or see variations) 1 Betty Crocker gingerbread mix, mixed according to directions on box. Cool Whip or Whipped Cream
    Place stick of butter in dutch oven and set in hot coals to melt. Watch carefully to avoid burning!

    Mix cake according to package directions. Dump applesauce over melted butter, then pour cake batter on top of applesauce.

    Place dutch oven on top of hot goals (not flames) and cover. Baking time will be at least 20 minutes but varies depending on how hot the fire is. Check it periodically, and remove from fire when the top of the cake feels springy in the center.

    Serve warm in bowls with Cool Whip or whipped cream.

    Black Forest Dump Cake – substitute cherry pie filling for applesauce and chocolate fudge cake mix for gingerbread.
    Apple or Peach Dump Cake – Substitute canned Apple or Peach pie filling for applesauce and yellow cake mix for gingerbread. Make your own! You can create variations of this recipe using your favorite ingredients.
    Try canned sliced peaches and spice cake mix
    Campfire Éclairs
    8-ounce can Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls
    2 vanilla JELL-O Brand pudding snacks
    1 tub Betty Crocker whipped frosting (chocolate)
    thin-tip cooking sticks
    aluminum foil
    Pam cooking spray
    Cover tip of stick with aluminum foil and spray with Pam.
    Stretch one crescent roll over foil and squeeze tip to close and tighten.
    Cook over campfire until golden brown turning frequently. (Crescent roll is done when it slides off the foil easily.)
    Fill center of crescent roll with vanilla pudding, spread chocolate frosting on top, and enjoy!

    Can’t Get Enuff’s
    coconut cookie bars
    peanut butter
    chocolate bars (i.e. Hershey’s brand)
    roasted marshmallows or marshmallow crème
    Spread peanut butter on a coconut cookie bar. Place piece of chocolate bar on top of peanut butter. Place roasted marshmallow or spread marshmallow crème on top of chocolate bar, and top with a coconut cookie bar. Similar to S’mores, but these are "Can’t get e’nuffs!"
    Hash mess w/eggs
    1 pound ground beef
    1 bag frozen, cubed hash browns
    2 sticks butter
    salt and pepper, to taste
    6 large eggs
    1/2 cup milk
    1 green pepper, chopped
    1/2 onion, chopped
    5-8 mushrooms, sliced thin
    1 cup shredded cheddar
    Make this at home a day ahead and bring it with you. Fry hamburger until done. Add vegetables and mix together with seasonings. Put in 9×13 cake pan. Top with cheese. Cover with foil. At the campsite, mix eggs and milk and pour over top of hash mess and cook until eggs are done. Very good and filling. The kids eat it with Ketchup; us adults use salsa and sour cream.

    Biscuit smores
    1 can refrigerated biscuits
    1 bag marshmallows
    chocolate bars
    Stretch out one of the biscuits and place a marshmallow and a few pieces of a chocolate bar on top. Then take a second biscuit and place it over the first, sealing the edges. Finally, wrap in tin foil and place either in the embers of the campfire or on a grate over a fire ring. We found it works best over a fire ring, which makes it easier to turn them over half way through cooking so one side doesn’t burn. When biscuit is cooked (about 5 minutes, depending on heat of fire) remove and enjoy.

    we take eggs and bacon for breakfast with a cast iron skillet you can just sit a grill over your campfire and cook anything just like you would on a range top. for breakfast things like pop tarts are good. we also just do regular grilling foods like ribs. Baked beans or other canned veggies can be thrown in a pot and done on a fire pit also. we have a boiler we just broke the handle off of so we could use it over a fire, but dont forget a towel/oven mit to take it off the fire with.

  3. *Robin*Girl * says:

    You asked this question 4 hours ago and have 8 answers .
    but thanks for 2 more
    wasted 5..?

  9. Dune says:

    Canned foods, and dried foods.

    Cans of stews, baked beans etc

    Dried veggies like peas beans and instant potatoes. Milk powder sugar Tea coffee etc

    Prepared meats like sausages, bacon, ham etc.

    You could take some fresh foods if you have adequate storage facilities.

  10. Vic says:

    Peel potatoes, put them in a container with water and they’re
    ready to go when you;re ready to cook them.

    Cook and package beans, gnd beef and shredded cheese
    for burritos.

    You can use parchment paper in much the same way you use foil. Just put it on a griddly… but you can then burn the
    parchment in the fire and reduce garbage. Don’t use styro cups… bad for the fire and they release cfc’s.

    Pack lots of fresh fruit – especially oranges – for quick energy.
    If you drink coffee, you can make some at home, freeze into cubes, put in a ziploc bag and take those both for iced coffee and cool down help for "camp coffee". Have fun!

    By taking a stove, you’re increasing your options by 100%. Here are 2 links – the first is the best by far. I’ve got my sleeping bag and little plastic suitcase for eggs; let me know when you’ll swing by to pick me up!

  12. Sonoran Sweetheart says:

    one pot spaghetti is one of the meals I’m bringing with when we go camping in a week.
    Here is a similar recipe to the one I use, I just have the ground beef bround ahead of time an I have a bag of chopped veggies that I stick in the freezer and then take with us, it turns out SO good and is really easy. Have fun camping

  13. Evie says:

    You can use an iron skillet or pot over your fire.
    Some items that will not spoil during your trip are:

    baby potatos-boil them in water, when boiled, lightly pan fry them in the skillet with olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

    Corn on the cob-boil in water, then hold over fire for roasted taste. season with salt,butter, parmesan cheese or hot sauce.

    Stove top stuffing-comes in a box, just boil water and pour box into the pot.

    Grilled vegetables-Can be grilled on skillet.
    Sliced zuchini,eggplant, even grilled bananas sprinkled with sugar as a dessert!

    Also you can roast chestnuts for a snack..

    Hopefully this helps. These foods i mentioned will not need refridgeration.
    Have Fun!

  14. thezaylady says:

    Corn on the cob. Don’t husk them yet. Soak them in water for a while, and then set them on the coals of the fire. The husks will keep the juices inside to boil the corn.

  15. PAinTSpLaTtEr says:

    For my weeklong camping trip coming up in August I will be bringing a lot of regular "home" foods. Pasta, stuffing, rice, chicken. Bring lunch meat, produce, and wraps (all of which can be placed into containers so the contents don’t get wet in the cooler).

    Whatever you cook on the stovetop can be cooked while camping. No need to only eat hotdogs and hamburgers for a week.

    Oh and don’t forget to pack fruit!

  16. Maw-Maw says:
