8 Amazing Camping Food Hacks You Wished You Tried Before

When you go camping, you want everything to be more accessible – fewer things to bring and more uncomplicated recipes to cook. There are many ways to make camping so much more convenient, especially when it comes to food. Whether you’re preparing your snacks or cooking a campfire dessert, here are some easy camping food hacks you wish you’ve tried before!

Make campfire s’mores more fun

For an easy to eat option, make your s’mores inside ice cream cones! Or better yet, slice a banana horizontally (with the peel on) and stuff with chocolate and marshmallows! Wrap the cones or the bananas in foil and heat on a grill/pan over campfire coals!

Try this healthy campfire snack

For an easy but healthy campfire snack, carve an apple, fill it with trail mix, wrap it in foil then bake it over a campfire! Mmm-hmm!

Snack on some mess-free tacos

Want to wash fewer dishes during snack time in camp? Make tacos in a bag! Just open a small bag of nacho chips, add your favourite taco sauce and ingredients and there you have it – a quick, mess-free snack!

Replace regular hotdog buns with crescent roll dough

All you need are hotdogs on sticks and Pillsbury crescent rolls. Just wrap the pre-cut roll around each hotdog (starting with the flat end and ending with the triangle’s tip). Loosely wrap in aluminium foil and roast over a campfire!

Are you cooking on a pot over a campfire? Use the Swedish Torch method!

This type of campfire is self-contained, and you won’t need extra support for your pot. You’ll only need dry softwood, a saw and a few matches to create the Swedish Torch method. Easy one-pot campfire cooking!

Make easy pizza using a dutch oven

Just spread half the tube of pre-made pizza crust on the bottom of your dutch oven, top with sauce and your other favourite pizza ingredients and cook over hot campfire coals or wood! Easy peasy!

Remove packaging of food and snacks

To save space on your cooler or food/snack box for camping, remove the carton packaging before packing. You don’t need those oversized, bulky packaging for your trip!

Store your spices in Tic Tac boxes

Here’s another tip to save space and to keep your camping stuff organized – fill Tic Tac boxes with spices (like salt, pepper, chilli powder etc.) you’ll need for cooking. This way, you won’t need to bring the entire bag or bottle as you’ll only need a small amount!
