How to Recreate Camp Cooking at Home

April 25th, 2020 in General by

Have you ever gone camping? If yes then, you might be missing the camping experience, especially the camping meals. We all know there is something unique about camp cooking which makes it a memorable experience. Be it grill or using foils for cooking meals you get ample opportunity to get creative while cooking in the open during camping.

If you got an open space at home, either you could start cooking in the fresh air, or you can also use a caravan awning porch for cooking. We recommend you to eat outside in the fresh air to enjoy a camping experience fully. You can also attach shade walls to your caravan, arrange some chairs and take delight in the open space.

Camp Cooking at Home

Let’s have a look at a few recipes to re-create a camp cooking experience:

Campfire Damper

It is the traditional camping dish of Aussies which is so easy to make that even kids can cook it over the campfire. If you don’t have the campfire setting at home then, you can try making it in the oven. The recipe is simple where a wheat bread is baked in the coal fire and served with your favourite topping. It tastes delicious and gives you the feel of an ultimate camping experience. 

Baked Potatoes

Potatoes are everyone’s favourite and are easy to make. Pierce the potatoes with a fork, wrap them in foil and let them cook in the oven. Take out the potatoes after a while and add your favourite toppings, butter, salt, and some pepper to enhance the taste. You can also serve it with some delicious dips, sour cream, chives, cheese, avocado, and baked beans. 

Jaffles

Jaffles is another gourmet recipe that you can try at home to refresh your camping memories. It is one of the easiest camping meals that you can prepare at home. You need to make a sandwich with your favourite filling and you are done. Either you can use a jaffle maker or can cook it in a BBQ. If you don’t have any of these, then cook them in a sandwich press or try making it in a pancake style in a frying pan.

You can use ham and cheese, baked beans, tinned spaghetti, mince or anything that you like as a sandwich filling.

An Aussie BBQ

When it comes to cooking on a camping trip; it is incomplete without a BBQ. A classic Aussie BBQ can also be created with available options at home; it doesn’t need to be grand at all times. You can use veggie skewers, onions, sausages, burgers and kebabs, let it charred to get that smoky taste and the real campfire feel.

You can use a BBQ arm extendable stand by Xtend Outdoors to make your camp cooking a little more comfortable.

S’mores

S’mores is another delicious camping treat that you can easily make at home. You can use chocolate, marshmallows and crackers to make the simple dish. Usually, you toast the marshmallows on the campfire when you are on a camping trip. Here you can get a BBQ, to toast the marshmallows and prepare delicious s’ more into an open sandwich. It is similar to grilled cheese. You need to place it in the oven or a BBQ to grill for a few minutes. Make sure you don’t burn them entirely else it will melt and drop everywhere.

These were some camp cooking ideas to recreate a camping experience while you are at home.
