There’s just something about smoked sausage and camping that goes together like peas and carrots. This is a basic foil packet camp recipe that encourages you to play around with your favorite combinations of veggies and seasonings. Use our camp recipe below as a guideline, but don’t be afraid to make adjustments to please your taste buds (or picky campers).
Camp Recipe: Smoked Sausage, Potatoes & Green Beans
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
1/2 pound New Potatoes, quartered (about 4 - 5 small potatoes)
8 oz. Green Beans (fresh or frozen)
1 Onion, chopped
4 - 5 Mushrooms, sliced
1 pound Smoked Sausage, cut into 1" pieces
1 - 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
Red Pepper flakes to taste (optional)
1/2 tablespoon Butter
1/3 cup Water
This recipe makes enough for 2 servings. Make 2, double-layer foil packets. Spray with non-stick cooking spray to keep things from sticking.
Evenly divide all ingredients between both foil packets. Start each packet with a base layer of potatoes, then top with remaining ingredients. Season with the garlic powder, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to your liking.
Top with slab of butter. Pour water into the bottom of the foil packet.
Wrap and seal the aluminum foil. Leave room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks.
Cook on hot coals for 15 minutes, flip about half-way through.
Open with caution – there will be plenty of steam.
Pizza for breakfast? While camping? Yes, please! This Dutch Oven Deep Dish Breakfast Pizza camp recipe is perfect for creating happy campers first thing in the morning.

After a long, exhausting day on the trail a good, hearty, easy meal is in order. This Dutch Oven Shepherd’s Pie is just the ticket. It won’t take up a lot of your camp time and it will replenish you after wearing yourself out on the trail.
If you’re looking for a stick-to-your-ribs, energize-you-all-morning camp recipe breakfast to kickoff a long day of hiking or camping activities, look no further. Nate came up with the idea for this breakfast hash after seeing a few similar recipes for at-home meals. We ate this before hiking Mt. LeConte and it helped us to stay energized for all 11 exhausting miles.
10 oz. diced potatoes - we used Simply Potatoes Diced with Onion
1/3 cup diced green peppers
Salt and Pepper
1/2 pound breakfast sausage
4 eggs, raw, scrambled
2 - 4 slices cheddar cheese
2 sheets aluminum foil
Spray the aluminum foil with cooking spray. Place potatoes and green peppers on aluminum foil and salt and pepper to taste. Wrap and seal the aluminum foil, leaving room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks.
Place potato foil packet on campfire for 15 - 20 minutes. (Hint: To save time in the morning, we cooked the potatoes on the campfire the night before and placed them in the cooler overnight - that way we wouldn't have to stoke up the fire the next morning since we use a backpacking stove to cook breakfast.)
While the potatoes are cooking, place sausage in a dutch oven and cook thoroughly. Drain excess fat.
Add the potatoes to the dutch oven and mix them with the sausage.
Pour the scrambled egg mixture over the sausage and potato mixture. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed.
Place cheese on top of sausage, egg and potato mixture. Cover with a lid for 3 - 5 minutes or until eggs are well cooked and cheese is melted.
Give all the ingredients a good stir, dish on to your plates and enjoy!
This makes enough for hearty portions for 3 people.
