Our camp cooking essentials:
- A Pie Iron Camp Cooker makes cooking over the open fire super easy. Check out these 20+ Pie Iron Recipe Ideas for tons of camp cooker inspiration! Or visit my how to use a pie iron post for tips.
- Foil Pie Plates make tinfoil packet meals even easier with the sturdy base that they provide.
- These Grilling Bags that I recently found are amazing! Simply add all of your ingredients to the bag at home then throw it on the campfire or grill when camping in the great outdoors.
- We love these BBQ Cooking Gloves because they make handling campfire food a whole lot safer!
My boys love the combination of flaky pastry, pie filling and whipping cream in this recipe. I love that its delicious but not fussy to create!
How to make camp cooker pumpkin pie:
- Purchase and pack pumpkin pie making ingredients.
2. Spray the inside of the camp cooker with non stick cooking spray. Open the tin of rolls, stretch and press a roll onto both sides of the iron.
3. Fill the dough with about 2 tablespoons of pie filling. Top with the second roll and close and latch the pie iron.
4. Cook over the fire for approximately 5 minutes per side.
5. Unlatch and check the pie for doneness frequently so that it does not burn. The pie is done when the dough is golden on the outside.
6. Top with whipping cream and serve. Whenever I pack whipping cream to take camping it does not last very long. Often this camp cooker dessert becomes more whipping cream than actual pie. And if I am being totally honest, the whipping cream doesn’t always even make it onto the pie but goes straight into the boys mouths.
Tips for cooking with a camp cooker:
- When cooking with a camp cooker, begin by applying non stick cooking spray or oil to the inside of both cooking plates. This step is important so that your delicious meal doesn’t stick to the plates and burn.
- Place your recipe ingredients into the cooker before closing and latching it.
- Cook the recipe over an open fire. We recommend placing the cooker over the fire for two minutes before unlatching, checking for doneness and flipping the cooker over to cook the other side.
- Use caution when handling both the metal latch and handles as they can become hot while cooking.
We always have camp cookers packed in the travel trailer for camping. They are such a handy tool for making quick meals, snacks and desserts.
We’ve even pulled them out to use at home on the deck with our propane fire pit. The kids love using camp cookers for dessert at home too!
Meal planning is essential whenever we go camping! This way most of the mess stays at home and we have delicious meals ready for our entire trip.
Tips for camping meal preparation:
- Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible. Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier. Trust me on this one!
- Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought.
- Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers. These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
- Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size freezer bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
- Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy. These Cheesy Vegetable Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Tinfoil Packet Nacho Dip recipes are some of our favorites.
- Use my blank printable meal plan or camping meal plans to help organize your next trip.
