Camping Recipes

Ok so now you have your tent, bathroom, and A/C it’s time to think of what your going to cook on your camping trip.  Do you want to go with the convenience of dehydrated foods or the experience of cooking over an open flame or propane stove?  We choose all three on our trip. We had the dehydrated foods as a backup (we actually used one the first night after setting up) and planned meals for the following days and nights.

We only purchased those that we absolutely needed as space was limited within our cooler.

With that being said here some  Camping Recipes from around the web to get your eat on!

Cajun Grill Foil Packets

  • Saved from



  • 8-12 pieces of corn on the cob (4 full cobs cut in half or in thirds)
  • 4 red potatoes, washed and cubed
  • 20-30 uncooked shrimp (peeled or not, it’s up to you)
  • 1 Lb. smoked sausage, cut into chunks
  • melted butter (or olive oil), to taste
  • 1/2 c. chicken broth (you may not need that much)
  • Cajun/Creole seasoning (we like to use Tony Chachere’s brand), to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • (makes 4 grill packets)
  • Heat grill to 400-degrees (you can do this in your oven, too, at the same temp.).
  • Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage between 4 heavy-duty foil sheets (appx 12×18 inches each).
  • Drizzle melted butter and about 2 Tbsp. chicken broth over each foil packet.
  • Season evenly (and generously), to taste with Cajun seasoning and salt and pepper.
  • Tightly seal foil packets by folding up the sides over the contents and tightly folding up the ends over the seam.
  • Grill 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender, flipping once half-way through (be careful opening the packets to check for doneness, the steam inside is VERY hot)!
