When you are camping out you do not have to put up with snacks and dehydrated dinners. Nor do you have to make cooking seem like a chore. Using a few easy camping recipes you can eat as well as you do at home.
Part of the fun of camping is experimenting with different ways and types of cooking. Below are three tasty recipes for you to try.


One and a half pound of ground beef.
Two medium sized carrots.
One medium sized onion.
Five medium sized potatoes.
One large tin of peas.
One packet of onion soup mix.


Cook the meat in a large pan until nicely browned. Chop the carrots, onion, and potatoes, and add to the meat. Make up the soup mix with enough water to cover all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook with the lid on until the potatoes are tender. Add the peas and simmer for a further five to ten minutes until they are hot.


Four medium sized potatoes.
One onion.
One pound of ground beef.
Quarter of a cup of water.


Peel and slice the potatoes, and the onion. Place the ground beef into a container and add the water, mix together well and then add the potatoes and onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide into three or four portions and wrap with double thickness of tin foil. Place onto a medium to hot grill for about forty minutes, carefully moving occasionally. Open with caution and serve with some bread rolls.


One small green pepper, chopped.
Half of a small red pepper, chopped.
Ten button mushrooms, chopped.
One teaspoon of butter or margarine
Four chicken breasts.
One can of pineapple slices.
Four sixteen inch squares of tin foil.


Divide the peppers and mushrooms into four equal portions. Coat a small area in the centre of each piece of tin foil with the butter or margarine. Place one portion of the peppers and mushrooms onto the greased area of tin foil, place the chicken breast on top and a pineapple slice on top of the chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper and fold tin foil over securely so there are no leaks. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients so you have four individual servings. Place onto hot grill or coals for approximately Fifteen minutes, then turnover for another ten to fifteen minutes.
