I love Pie Irons for cooking while camping. We also call them camp cookers. It is essentially a cast iron sandwich maker that you can heat over the open fire. We use it year round and it works like a charm over the propane fire as well (whenever there is a fire ban in place). You can purchase a Pie Iron from Amazon or find them at Canadian Tire or other outdoor specialty stores.

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 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.
While camping easy preparation and clean up is a priority for me.

Basic camping food tips:
Follow these tips to make sure that you have the right variety of foods packed for your next trip.
1.Use fresh food first.
Fresh foods like meats, fruit and vegetables should be eaten at the beginning of your trip. Don’t make the mistake of reserving these items as they are more likely to spoil, wasting money and leaving you with less food to consume. These foods have been know to go off during our camping trips so it’s best to eat them first.
2. Use frozen foods next.
Frozen foods are great for packing while camping. They can be used as additional ice packs in coolers and consumed at a later date as they defrost. Meals should stay in the cooler or refrigerator until ready to be eaten. Be especially mindful of frozen meats that can spoil easily. It’s best to eat fresh and frozen foods before moving on to non-perishable items.
3. Finally, use non-perishable items.
Once the fresh and frozen foods that you have packed are eaten, start to use up your non-perishable items. Non-perishables can include things like: crackers, popcorn, rice, pasta and canned goods.
4. Keep snacks on hand.
Packing a wide variety of snacks is always a good idea. Depending on the activities that you are doing while camping, you may need the extra calorie consumption. Or if your other foods spoil, you have something else to rely on. We like to pack: sunflower seeds, nuts, protein bars and beef jerky.
