Sandwiches have always been a travel-friendly food. Hence, carrying all the ingredients you might need for making a sandwich at a camp is always wise. The best part about a sandwich is that it can be personalized. You can make your sandwich according to the way you want it to be. Be it a jelly sandwich to a cheese or chicken sandwich; everything can be prepared in no time. 


If you plan on not putting much effort into cooking on your camping trip, fruits are the best options. You can carry them with you and have a bite whenever you feel like it. This will not only save your time but will also provide you with the necessary energy and strength. Fruits can also be converted into salads with sour and spicy flavors, satisfying your foodie side. 

Perfectly Grilled Burgers

We can’t go wrong while making this simple and delicious recipe. A perfect view and a pair of buns in your hand is a sacred moment. 

Firstly, shape the meat patties roughly as big as the buns. Salt patties liberally on both sides.

You can organize a grill for direct cooking and heat to medium-high or heat a cast-iron skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat. Brush the grates with oil once it is hot. Grill the burgers between 3 and 5 minutes. Keep in mind you need to do that to both sides.


1.5 lb meat

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dried spices

Canola oil for pan or grill grates


Campfire Nachos

Nachos are the perfect partner for a lazy camp. 

Oil the bottom part of the oven to prevent the nachos from sticking to the bottom. For making the first layer:

  1. Spread ⅓ of the chips, ¼ cup cheese, and green onions in the oven.
  2. Repeat for the second layer.
  3. For the third and final layer, use the remaining ingredients and cover the oven, and place on a metal grill over the campfire for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted, and then serve with lime.



One tablespoon flavored oil

½ lb tortilla chips

1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

One can drain black beans

Four sliced onions

A handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

One small lime, cut into wedges 


Here you have a list of foods you can carry for a camping trip that will for sure satiate your hunger and make the experience one of a lifetime. An essential part that should be mentioned is, you should never forget to hydrate yourself properly. Carry enough water as well, and you are all set!
