It’s easy enough to make some burger patties, stick them in a cooler then head out for the camp ground, but hauling all the fixin’s is when it gets to be a pain. That’s why we love this Stuffed Cheeseburger with Peppers camping recipe… all of the fixin’s are already on the inside! You can fix this on a grill, but when a grill isn’t available, just wrap this stuffed burger in a foil packet and throw it on the campfire.
This burger can have endless options – pair up your favorite cheese(s) and peppers. As the burger cooks, the flavor of the pepper starts to permeate the entire patty, making every bite – from first to last – absolutely delicious. What more can you ask for in a great camping recipe?
Even if you don’t fish when we’re camping, that doesn’t mean that you should just have to be stuck with meat and potatoes on the campfire. With inspiration from our friends at All Recipes, we took this recipe and modified it for the campfire. Be sure when you’re selecting your salmon for this camping recipe, to pick a filet that still has the skin on – this will make it less likely that the good stuff will get stuck on the foil packet!
This time of year I really can’t get enough freshly harvested squash and zucchini… throw in a little red hot chili peppers and it’s a trio that I can’t say no to. When we were prepping our camping menu for our trip to Standing Stone State Park last weekend (more on that later) I decided to try some of my favorite veggies, a few spices and a pile of nutty flavored quinoa in a foil packet to see how it would work as a camp recipe.
The result? Delicious. Try this out as either a vegetarian camp recipe or a side dish on your next outing. It’s packed with the flavors of the season and nutrients to keep your energy high as you hike, boat or simply lounge by the campfire.
Summer is the perfect time to work a little Hawaiian flavor into your meal – even when you’re camping. This foil packet recipe one-ups the standard Hawaiian ham & pineapple combo by working in sweet potatoes, bell peppers and some spicy red pepper flakes to balance out the flavors and fill up your belly.
Without a doubt, this ranks in my top 5 favorite camp recipes we’ve done for Marking My Territory. Try it out and let us know what you think!
When Nate first took me camping, this is the recipe he used to get me excited about cooking in the outdoors. This foil packet camp recipe is a breeze to throw together and just by tossing it on the campfire, you wind up with a gourmet-style meal. Dried rosemary can be used, but fresh is certainly best.
Give it a whirl at your next camp outing and let us know what you think!
