  • For breakfast, a honey bun cake is always a huge hit with my family. Not the healthiest thing in the world, but really no worse than doughnuts, and super easy to make!

  • oH, there ares o many ways to do real dinners while camping, one we always use when camping is to make little individual meatloaves, and I slice potatoes fairly thin and lay them in tin foil with some Olive Oil and seasonings, plop the little meatloaf on top of taters wrap up tightly, I usually put another layer of foil, Throw em in the fire when you get set up, or if you want put them on the grill rack, i just prefer the coals on the outside edge of the fire.. If you like fish, it is good that way to, if you are close enough to transport it to campsite safely, or catch fresh which is the best way, a little butter and some lemon and your good to go.

    You can cook pretty much anything in a foil pack, and it will be awesome.

    Have fun

  • I think you cna take frozen pork chops or steaks (with marinade) in the cooler. Put them on the bottom and a few days into the campout they will be thawed and ready to cook.
