Here are a few more simple ideas for recipes you might care to try on your next camping trip.

Simple easy stir-fry

  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Noodles
  • A bit of meat (sausage, chicken, bacon etc.)
  • An assortment of vegetables
Cut up the meat and place in a pan with a little oil. Once the meat has been browned, add in your choice of vegetables (anything you fancy - asparagus, broccoli, onions, beansprouts are all good choices). Stir fry then add in a jar of pasta sauce or you might prefer curry sauce or Chinese sauce. Stir fry for another 5 minutes or so and serve with rice, pasta or noodles.

Make your own corn bread

  • 3 cups of self raising flour
  • 1 large can of beer (for the yeast element!)
  • 1 tin of sweet corn
  • Small pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of butter, margarine or vegetable oil
Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a soft ball. Once it feels soft and has some elasticity, place into a pot or frying pan. Bake over hot coals but near the edge of the fire, not directly on top of it. Bread is ready if it sounds hollow when tapped or it comes away easily from the pot or pan. Children especially can have a lot of fun baking their own bread. This simple little recipe takes around 20 minutes and is a great alternative to bread.

Beans and mince

  • 4 oz of minced beef
  • 1 can of baked beans
  • A pinch of chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp of paprika
  • 1 tbsp of tomato puree
Cook the mince in a saucepan until browned then drain off any excess fat. Add the beans and tomato puree and stir into the mince. Add the chilli and paprika. Cook for about 5 minutes and serve with pasta, in a jacket potato or on hot buttered toast - a simple meal for two!

Fast fish in foil

  • Fillets of white fish - cod, haddock or plaice
  • Dressing to taste
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Broccoli
Place fish on tin foil, lightly brush the fish with your choice of dressing. Add sliced peppers, onions and broccoli and wrap tightly. Place on hot coals for 20 to 30 minutes and serve with a baked potato or boiled rice.

Posh hotdogs

Kids love these as a tasty little snack and it's a great little meal to introduce them to camp cooking.

  • Tin of hotdogs
  • 1 lb of uncooked back bacon
  • Cheese slices
  • Toothpicks
Split the hotdog down the middle from one end to the other without splitting all the way through. Tear strips off cheese and tuck into the slit. Wrap the entire hotdog with a slice of bacon and fasten with toothpicks. Roast over an open flame until the bacon is crispy and the hotdog is heated through.

Trail mix

Not a 'cooking' recipe as such but provides a great source of energy and a tasty nibble when out you're hiking and between meals.

  • 1 cup of granola
  • Half a cup of peanuts
  • Half a cup of raisins
  • 1 cup of your favourite dried cereal
  • Half a cup of mini chocolate chips
  • Half a cup of your favourite dried snack
Mix everything in a bowl then pour into a ziplock bag and you have a tasty crunchy snack you can dip into at any time between meals.

The beans and mince sounds suspiciously like chili, but there's nothing wrong with that, it's perfect camping food. The cornbread sounds good, but it's not exactly the easiest thing to make while on a camping trip, is it, what with the kneading. Also the first time I've heard of beer in cornbread. Live and learn, eh?
