Camping out with your friends or family need not always mean that you have to struggle to whip up some delicious food. Surprise your companions with these easy camping recipes to make during your trip to the outdoors.
Camping outdoors often would mean more than just fun, it would also mean a lot of adventures, hiking, scrumptious food like bacon and eggs, ginger beer, potted sandwiches, etc. The highlight of any such trip is gathering around the campfire.
A time to discuss events and interact with fellow campers, it is also the time to cook some piping hot meals over the blazing fire. Not everybody can be a homebody and cook beautifully to satiate hungry stomachs. Cooking, whilst you're camping is a group activity and can be fun when you really plan it well. Have a look at the recipes given here.
