Whether you are RV camping or tent camping, one of the most important parts of any Oklahoma camping trip is the delicious meals you eat throughout the day to recover your energy after hiking, swimming, and otherwise exploring nature. However, cooking outside the comfort of your home’s kitchen can be challenging, and the last thing you want to do is add stress to a trip that should be relaxing. Luckily, there are numerous campfire recipes both delicious and readily prepared—the few below might make you so hungry that you wish you could be sitting around a campfire right now.
- The coals and embers of your campfire make for some delicious roasted vegetables. Eggplants, corn, and leeks are all simple and revitalizing sides that you can add to any meal. Bring along some extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle over eggplant, and don’t forget your salt and spices! Plus, you won’t even have to worry about husking your corn—the cobs will easily slip out of their husks once cooked.
- Foil packs are your best friend. Tossing together your best ingredients into individual foil packs and roasting them on the fire means limited prep and practically no cleanup. Chicken, barbeque sauce, fruit, and your favorite vegetables combine for a particularly fresh and tasty foil pack.
- To make your Oklahoma camping adventure even less stressful, prepare a few snacks at home and keep them in a cooler. Yogurt parfaits filled with honey, fresh fruits, and granola store easily in small mason jars for a quick, preparation-free serving.
- Don’t underestimate the simplicity of a sandwich! Fresh herbs and a light, tangy vinaigrette can make a bright and refreshing snack to easily pack away in your hiking bag.
With recipes like these at your disposal, it might not be too long before you decide that you want to be sleeping outside around a warm fire more often.
