Cooking in the Camper

Let’s talk food! Camping food, in particular.

Let’s face it: when you think of food while camping, you automatically think of hotdogs, hamburgers, chips and marshmallows. Well, I’m here to tell you that there are some fantastic go-to dishes that are as easy as a hotdog, and taste better than a burger… and I wouldn’t hesitate to offer to Taylor Swift on a paper plate, on a first date!


First things first…. Infamous breakfast!

For me, like many born in the ‘80s, camping breakfast was a mini-box of cereal that came in a 6-pack.  The first morning, you would have Froot Loops, then Corn Pops… and by the end of the trip, you were stuck choking down the Rice Crispies with luke warm milk.

Well, I certainly don’t drink milk for that reason to this day and, as a single dad, if I can rise up against this first light travesty, then so can you!

Let me introduce to you: the Zip-lock Bag Omelette

Yes, you heard it: Zip-lock Bag Omelette! The best part about this, is all you need is a Zip-lock bag (yes, I did just say that three times in a row) and a pot of boiling water to prepare it.

So, that means no dishes and you can make it in the same time it takes you to perk that coffee you’re going to dump your Baileys into! 

The Method

Fill a medium to large pot ¾ full of water and turn on medium heat to start the boiling process.

Next chop your omelette ingredients. I pre-cut my ingredients at home just for ease of preparation and so that it doesn’t cut into my coffee time. 

I usually use ham, cheese, peppers, and onions—only because those ingredients easily last multiple days in a cooler, and they taste great in an omelette.  But, of course, you can add any ingredient you would like.
