It’s a favorite time of year for many campers. The days are sunny and the nights are cool. The campfire serves more of a purpose as you snuggle up close to it at night. This is the time for comfort food and there is plenty of ways to achieve that when you are camping. We’ll share a few recipes to get you started.
Sausage Tin Foil Dinner
This is a warm, filling, easy to make meal that is perfect for camping in the Fall. You’ll need some breakfast sausage links, carrots, potatoes, onion, a few slices of bacon, heavy duty tin foil, salt & pepper, and some cooking spray. Layer the main ingredients into the foil and then double wrap them while making sure the ends are sealed. Drop them in the hot coals and flip them every ten minutes or so. Once they are done you have individual meals for everyone with out the clean up. You can see the recipe at Bakers Beans.
Dutch Oven Stuffed Peppers
This is going to take you back to your childhood – when you didn’t love the pepper part of this meal. Fortunately we are grown up now and love the subtle flavor of green pepper in this dish. You’ll be stuffing half a dozen green peppers with a mixture of ground meat, onion, garlic, cooked rice, tomato sauce, mushrooms, and seasonings. Top them with shredded cheese and dinner is just about ready to serve. You can see the recipe at Dirty Gourmet.
Cake & Berry Campfire Cobbler
This is wonderful when served warm with a scoop of cool and creamy ice cream. It’s easy enough to make with a couple of cans of raspberry pie filling, yellow cake mix, water and some canola oil. Put a layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil down in your Dutch Oven, mix up the cake mix and pour it in, then add a layer of the pie filling. Cook it until bubbly and the toothpick comes out clean. You’re ready to impress your camping guest with this little treasure. You can see the recipe at Taste of Home.
