Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the world is currently at a standstill. While this has been a blow to everyone globally, it is more punishing to people who love the outdoors, such as avid campers. If you are one, we feel your pain. There’s no doubt you’ve missed setting camp at beautiful campsites, stargazing with friends around a bonfire, and oh! the amazing and ever scrumptious camping recipes. 

However, you don’t have to wait until being outside is allowed again. You can get a taste of outdoor camping by recreating camping recipes. For some inspiration, here are three easy to make campsite treats recipes you can try from the confines of your home

 

  • Camping Biscuit Breakfast Burgers 

 

If you are a sweet tooth and usually crave sugar in the morning to get your day started on the right foot even while in camp at Saco river, then you will want to try this treat. For this, you can choose to make your biscuits, or opt for your favorite ready-made biscuits. If you chose to make them, feel free to try your favorite biscuit recipes. Besides the biscuits, you will also need to make eggs and sausage patties in a size that’ll fit the biscuits. Once everything is ready, put it together the burger style, and devour the mini-burger.

 

  • Mini S’mores

 

Nothing screams camping like s’mores, and our mini s’mores aren’t just ordinary. They are easy to make, and as a chocolate, marshmallow crème, and crackers combo, the taste is simply heavenly. To make it, slightly boil a cup of whipping cream in a saucepan, add a cup or two of milk chocolate chips and stir till smooth, then leave it to cool down for ten minutes. Spread the mixture over half a cracker, and on the remaining half, spread marshmallow crème. Next, melt your dipping milk chocolate and then dip each s’more halfway into it and then set aside till the chocolate is set. If you want, you can set them in the refrigerator for a while or take a big bit there and then. 

 

  • Mexican Campfire Corn Cob 

 

Corn on the cob! Who doesn’t love it? Besides s’mores, corn on the cob is yet another great way to reminisce the evenings you spend around a campfire with your friends during camp. For this particular recipe, you will, of course, need corn on the cob. You’ll also need mayo, parmesan cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and limes. To make it, grill the corn until it’s slightly charred, and as you do so, mix the mayo, the sour cream, and the cilantro. Once the corn is ready and while piping hot, generously slather the mayo-sour cream and cilantro mixture on it.  Let it sit for three minutes then sprinkle the lime and parmesan cheese. If you like spicy treats, sprinkle a little chili powder, take a bite, and thank us later!

All the above recipes will certainly help you keep your love for camping alive, even amidst the current lockdown. To make the experience even more camp-like, consider creating an open fire in your backyard and cook them outside.
