There are plenty of things you must sacrifice on a camping trip, like air-conditioning, TV and good old-fashioned toilets. But delicious food? Never! These 11 recipes prove you can still eat well while out in the wilderness.


Onion bombs

Cut a peeled onion in half, and separate the pieces into matching pairs. Squish turkey sausage in between two matching pieces. The Eating In Neverland blog suggests mixing the sausage with garlic, some ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, and salt and pepper. Wrap each onion bomb in one layer of regular foil and one in heavy-duty foil, and twist the ends. Throw them in the fire and cook for about 10 minutes on each side.


Bag o ‘teddies

Need a sweet snack that isn’t too unhealthy? Top bear-shaped graham cookies with yogurt and fresh berries, like strawberries, mandarin orange pieces, blueberries or banana.


Campfire ‘stir-fry’

A whole meal in an aluminum foil pouch! Before heading out on your camping trip, chop up some chicken sausage, potatoes, peppers and zucchini. Seal them in a foil pouch and cook over the fire for an easy, healthy dinner.
