5 Seriously Delicious One-Pot Camping Meals To Cook Over The Campfire

You went on a camping trip because you want to relax, unwind and to have a break from your day to day routine at home. But let’s face it, wherever we are for a vacation, we still need to prepare food for our daily meals and it’s no exception when we’re on a trip outdoors.

While cooking your food over a campfire is part of all the camping fun, let’s face it – it’s not something you would look forward to every day, especially when you’re assigned to be the camp cook.

Campfire cooking takes a lot of time and effort which is not ideal after a long day outdoors. But there’s still a way you can get the best of both worlds – one-pot camping meals! They’re quick and easy to prepare and you’ll still be able to enjoy some good ‘ol campfire cooking!

Here are 5 one-pot camping recipes you can’t miss out on:
