Hearty Sausage Skillet Camping Recipe

Hearty Sausage Skillet Recipe

We love this simple hearty sausage skillet recipe.  It’s time to start thinking about camping!  As avid campers we often start to plan and schedule our camping before the snow ever melts.  The spring camping season usually starts in March for us with a trip during spring break. 

One of the reasons we are able to camp so frequently is because of the epic meal planning that I do every year.  Having meals planned out and prepared in advance makes our outdoor adventures much more enjoyable.  So stay tuned because I have some great recipes lined up to share with you!  We’re starting off with this super easy Hearty Sausage Skillet camping meal.

How to make a hearty sausage skillet:

I absolutely love this recipe!  You guys, its so easy AND delicious.  It’s a meal that the whole family will love.  This recipe can very easily be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer until ready to pack and use for camping.

Simply purchase broccoli, cauliflower and sausage.  Cut into bite sized pieces.  I like the Harvest Farmers Sausage from Costco but you could go with your favorite pre-cooked sausage.  We love local mennonite sausage too.

Combine the ingredients into a large freezer safe plastic for storage and freeze for up to three months.

Tips for making Camping Freezer Meals:

  • Use 1 gallon, large freezer bags (aff link).  Label bags with the date, recipe and cooking instructions
  • Lay ingredients flat in the bag for easier storage in the freezer or cooler.
  • Defrost meals in the refrigerator and place into tinfoil packet for cooking on the campfire or bar-b-cue.
  • Store meals for up to three months in the freezer.

Be sure to label the bag with your recipe and the date!  Defrost and cook in a skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes.  You could also create a tinfoil packet and put this meal directly on the campfire.  Cooking time will depend on how close the packet is to the coals and flames.

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 (aff link). These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size ziploc 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 my favorites.
