    Fav Camp Recipes

    Does anyone have any favorite recipes you like to make while camping? As nice as the kitchens are in these campers I want to start cooking more while camping. In our old camper we normally just cooked hot dogs and brought potato salad etc. The old camper didn't have much of a kitchen or fridge.

    Well I do most of my cooking over the firepit even though I have a full kitchen. I think everything just tastes better cooked over an open fire. I bought a grill that you can stand over the fire to cook on and that works great. One of my favorite things to cook on the fire is Bratwurst, it tastes superb. MOst meats cooked on the fire just taste better not sure why that is. Toasting marshamallows is also a long time favorite. Always cooked on the campfire when I tent camped before getting a fifth wheel and it is a tradition I have kept and still like to do.

    We also cook some on the fire especially in the evening but its hot and humid and miserable to stand over fire. I was just wondering if anyone used their full kitchens much. We are just weekenders but I love to cook so may have to experiment some in the kitchen.

    Re: Fav Camp Recipes

    I do not like to cook in a camper. The vent system is just not as good as one at home. However, with that being said, I have yet to really cook in the Solitude. I do use a crockpot inside, but I have an induction cooktop that I use to cook outside. Camping in the spring/summer to me means grilling. So we do a lot of grilling. Wintertime however, we do cook chilli's, stews, and soups.

    Something I do use that's in the Solitude is the Convection Oven. I love to bake in it and will probably never use the regular oven again. It really does a fantastic job on baking.

    Yes we use the full kitchen, that's what we bought it for. We have found however using an electric skillet 3" deep for breakfast/bacon saves a lot of clean up. We also barbecue outside as well. Were just not saving the oven or cook top for the next guy to break-in.

    I use the convection oven a lot ... bisquits, hot dips, lasagna, breakfast casseroles. I haven't used the regular oven yet and probably won't until I need to cook several dishes at once. We will be camping over the Thanksgiving holiday and I may need both at that time. We will deep fry the turkey and then bake the sides. Cathy K

    Steve,
    They're just about the same as from a regular oven. Maybe even fluffier!

    We've also made cobblers, brownies, and almond cookies..(A friend and I have discovered almond and coconut flour--for low carb baking and we're trying all kind of new bake goodies)
