Camp Recipes: Spicy Cinnamon & Honey Sweet Roasted Potatoes

August 13, 2013 in Camping Recipes, Side Dish Recipes by amylaree

If you haven’t noticed, when it comes to camp recipes (and really, life in general) we’re pretty big sweet potato junkies. Need a refresher? Well, we’ve got… Sweet Potato Tacos, Pineapple, Ham & Sweet Potato Foil Packets, Black Bean & Corn Stuffed Sweet Potatoes and we’re working on a sweet potato breakfast hash that so good it will make you get up and start the campfire extra early.

SO, when I came across these Cinnamon & Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes from Tyler Florence, I was intrigued to see how they’d work as a foil packet recipe. Turns out they’re pretty delicious and a super easy camp recipe. Since we like things to have a little bit of a kick, I added in a nice dose of red pepper flakes that cranked the yum-factor up a few more notches. Try it out and let us know what you think!

Camp Recipe: Quinoa & Summer Vegetable Stir Fry Foil Packet

June 18, 2013 in Main Dishes, Side Dish Recipes by amylaree

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.

Camp Recipes: Biscuits

In our household, you really can’t go wrong by adding biscuits to a meal – breakfast, lunch, dinner… biscuits just makes them all better. And that includes campfire meals (and sometimes ESPECIALLY campfire meals). Check out this simple classic that’s great for camping or backpacking. It’s one of the easiest camp recipes we’ve tried.

Camp Recipes: Buttery Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 1 can of store-bought, refrigerated biscuits (any will do, pick your favorite)
  • 2 – 4 pats of butter (optional)

Instructions

  1. Line a dutch oven with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. (This step is totally optional, but will make clean-up SO much faster.)
  2. Pop open your can of biscuits and place on foil in dutch oven. They can be touching, but allow plenty of room for them to grow as they bake. Top with butter pats if you want the to be extra buttery.
  3. Cook on the campfire for 10 – 15 minutes – length really depends on the heat of your coals. We usually start checking around 8 minutes to make sure they don’t burn.
  4. When golden brown on top, remove from flame and Dutch oven.
  5. Pop ‘em on your plate and enjoy!
