3 Easy Recipes for Campers

In the Philippines, luxury camping is slowly becoming a thing thanks to the several places that have popped up where many people can enjoy “glamping.” It is so far-fetched from what individuals are used to before that many – who used to hate regular camping – are now accepting the activity with their arms wide open.

However, preparing for your first luxury camping trip cannot be easy especially when it comes to planning what food you are going to cook and eat at the campsite. But you can stop fretting now, for here are three meals you can definitely cook on a bonfire during your trip.

 

simple hamburger

 

Breakfast: Campfire Burger

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. sugar

  • 6 tbsp. dry milk powder
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 4 tbsp. canola oil
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 sausage patties

Directions:

  • Combine canola oil, black pepper, dry milk powder, salt, sugar, baking powder, and flour in a bowl. Pour the dry mix into a medium bowl and then add half a cup of water to make the biscuits. Add the remaining water by adding one tbsp. at a time until you create a thick batter. Add and stir in the cheese. Put the iron pan over medium heat then add oil for coating. Using a ¼ measuring cup, scoop the biscuit mix onto the pan. Cook until the first side turns into golden brown in colour before flipping once. Cook all biscuits until they are fluffy.
  • Set an iron skillet over a medium high heat fire then add the sausage. Cook all the sausages until they are golden brown. Set them aside.
