As you start making out lists of things that you’ll need to pack on your next great adventure into the wilderness, it can be easy to overlook the food. It’s something that’s so simple, and when you’re excited to take a swim in the lake or to cast a line and catch a big one, what you eat to sustain yourself throughout the journey may not seem like that big of a deal, but that’s only because you have yet to discover the magic of edibles while camping.

Since for most of us, this special time in nature is a vacation from responsibility and reality, it makes sense to stick to easy camping meals to keep your workload light, but what if we told you that we’ve found some simple camping recipes that can all be thrown together in a matter of minutes, and then roasted to perfection over the fire? If this idea piques your interest, then you aren’t going to want to miss out on this list of five incredible camping food ideas that will keep you lit in the bush.

1. Hobo packs

Hobo packs are a well-known camping food, and it’s pretty much just a pouch that includes your favourite kind of meat, potatoes, veggies, and a little bit of spice along with a dollop of butter to bring the flavors together. This is one of those camping recipes that can please even the pickiest eaters because everyone can make their own, and adjust it as needed to suit their taste.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Calories: 465
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • ¼ pound of ground beef (or another meat base)
  • 1 teaspoon cannabutter
  • 1 cubed potato
  • 1 diced onion
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 5-10 baby carrots

Tools

  • Aluminum foil

Instructions

  1. Measure out a fair-sized piece of aluminum foil that is long enough to be easily folded into an envelope.
  2. To fold it, place it long ways up and grab the bottom edge and pull it just over halfway up the aluminum foil strip. Next, fold the edges together, and punch them tightly to create a seal that will keep all of the delicious goodness inside while it cooks.
  3. Now you can stuff your hobo pouch with all of the ingredients and spices that you love.
  4. Seal up the remaining flap of the envelope and then leave the hobo pouch to cook over a fire for 30 minutes.

2. Bacon and eggs

Eggs and bacon are camping food that nearly every adventurer will prepare at least once during a stay in nature because it’s high in protein, and so much exercise makes us really hungry, so while it does take a few more extra tools to get the job done, turning this delicious meal into a cannabis-infused camping recipe is really easy to do over a roaring campfire.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Calories: 761
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 500g pack of bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 1 tablespoon cannabutter

Tools

  • Cast iron pan
  • Baking sheet
  • Sauce brush
  • Spatula

Instructions

  1. To start, you’ll need to place a cast iron pan over the fire to warm up, and then fill it with bacon slices.
  2. Next, you’ll want to cook the bacon slices until they are just about starting to brown, which can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes, depending on the temperature of your fire.
  3. Before the bacon crisps, it will need to be scooped up out of the grease and then laid out across a baking sheet.
  4. Now, remove the grease from the hot pot on the fire, and set it aside for now. Save the grease as it will be needed later on.
  5. Use a sauce brush to evenly coat every slice of bacon with a thin layer of cannabutter.
  6. Cook the bacon strips on the oven fire until golden, and while you wait, return the grease-filled cast iron pan to the heat and crack all four eggs in.
  7. Cooking the bacon and eggs should take another 5-6 minutes, and approximately 2 minutes before everything is done. Now is a great time to toss the pieces of bread onto the baking sheet with the bacon to toast.
