Campsite Recipes from the Truma Team

Truma-Campsite-Recipes

June is National Camping Month and to help you celebrate, we asked the Truma team to share their favorite campsite recipes.

Breakfast

Pudgy Pies are my absolute favorite camp breakfast. They are so yummy and easy to make! Everyone gets their own individual hashbrowns with eggs, cheese, and whatever ingredients they want. I like to throw in some bacon but you could use breakfast sausage or vegetables, too. You’ll need a campfire pie iron to make pudgy pies.

French Toast is a breakfast favorite in our house and it’s easier than you’d think to make at the campsite. I like to make the “batter” ahead of time in a mason jar so we don’t need to worry about the eggs breaking on the way to our destination. They also take up less space in our Truma Cooler than a carton of eggs, so it’s a win-win! (You can crack eggs for omelets and scrambled eggs into a jar for transport, too.)

Ingredients:

  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract (I measure with my heart so this is my best guess)
  • Pinch of Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • Sliced bread

Put your liquids and seasoning into a clean mason jar or other tight-sealing container. Put the lid on nice and tight and shake it to combine. Keep cold in your cooler or fridge until it’s time to use. 

When ready to cook, pour the egg wash into a shallow bowl. Dip your bread slices in the egg mixture until both sides are coated. 

Cook in a lightly oiled skilled or directly on a flattop griddle until both sides are golden brown. Serve with syrup and powdered sugar to make it extra sweet.

Our go-to when camping, traveling, or a day at the beach: Hawaiian Bread Sliders! These can be assembled in advance and stored in a cooler right in the bread wrapper. When you’re ready to eat, you can either wrap your sandwich in foil and throw it on the campfire for a hot ham and cheese or eat it cold! They can be made in so many different ways, too, like pepperoni pizza and Italian sliders.

Dinner

When we camp, we like to make what’s called Hobo Dinners. You just take your meat, vegetables, and whatever seasoning you like and put it in a foil pouch. You can really use any ingredients you want. These are great for throwing on a barbeque or a campfire grill so you can cook without using a bunch of pans and then you can eat it directly out of the foil!

We love a good Campfire Pizza when we go camping! This is a great snack for later in the evening while sitting around the campfire. Ingredients are simple and easy to modify from a savory pizza to a sweet dessert in your campfire pie iron.

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of bread (I have also used hamburger buns and various types of bread)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Toppings of your choice (pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, anything you want!)
Bread with marinara sauce

Spray the iron with nonstick cooking spray. Place one piece of bread in the iron, add a dab of pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings. Lay the second piece of bread over this and close the iron, clamping it tight. It’s okay if the bread hangs over the sides, this will just burn off.

Heat over the campfire, rotating regularly to ensure all sides are getting toasted. After a few minutes, check to see if the bread is browned. 

When ready, pop onto a plate and enjoy. Careful! The insides are lava hot!

For a sweet treat, replace the insides with a pie filling of your choice (my favorite is cherry), or with marshmallows, crumbled graham crackers, and chocolate for a s’more.

Dessert

Waffle cones with marshmallows

Waffle Cones on the fire are a favorite among our camp group! You can keep it simple or get creative with the filling for an easy hand-held dessert. Everyone has a lot of fun customizing their own. Another campsite favorite is swapping out the chocolate bars in our s’mores with Reese’s peanut butter cups. It’s a game-changer!
