Im looking for suggestions for food to take camping. Im thinking something cheap, easy to store and prepare, and something that will stay with you a while. Not looking for gourmet here, spartan is fine if it meets these criteria.

I eat a lot of bagel and peanut butter sandwiches. Carry a few different types of bagels for variety. Carrots, radishes, celery and other raw edibles for some rabbit food. Sometimes I cook up chicken breasts ahead fo time. Keep them well chilled and they are good for a few days. Sliced hams also work well for me as long as I can chill it.

Everything bagel with thick slabs of summer sausage or ham and cheddar with a squeeze tube of mustardb kept in a cooler will go far. Dried sausage, dried fruit and nuts last a very long time.

Dole fruit cups- I prefer the mandarin orange in jello. Cliff bars to supplement. A package of brats and a jug of mustard coupled with a pack of tortillas. Easy food that keeps well and keeps you full. :)

We found something quick and easy for a float trip or backpacking. They are called "Tortilla Stuffers." It comes in a sealed bag like tuna and stuff. It's already cooked and has everything you need to make a quick decent burrito, except the tortilla of course. One bag is good for 3-4 burritos. You can heat it up if you want, but in the summer we found it to be just fine straight out of the bag and into the tortilla. Comes in a few different flavors too.

Here's a link:

I premake burritos, and eat them for almost every meal.

Brown sound ground beef or sausage.

I use this package, and cook as instructed:

When it is almost done, I add the browned ground beef, a can of chile, and cheese. Then I roll them in tortillas and wrap that in foil.

You can eat them cold, they are easy to cook over a campfire, or usually, I just let them warm in the sun for a few hours on the deck of my yak.

I add jalapenos, onions, and cilantro to spice it up sometimes.

These pack well, are easy, and have very little waste when finished.

Pre-cooked fajitas from HEB/Wal-Mart!! We've done this our last few trips, and it's great. Just heat them up, slap it on a tortilla, and instant, satisfying dinner. We tend to carry eggs, too, and mix the leftover fajitas into a scrambler the next morning.

Vienna sausages! Yeah they're not great, but they're a tradition in my family for all fishing trips. We normally do alright, so they may bring good luck too.

I tried that once, put half of one in the frig and tried to eat it the next day. Tasted terrible, fed it to a goat and it gaged.

I fixed a rack of ribs yesterday ,I started thinking that would sure be a good easy meal, cook at home then just wrap in tinfoill and throw on the fire to warm them up.

I will often pack leftovers like red beans, rice and sausage or venison stew. I keep a few individual meals like that in the freezer.

I usually make subs the night before and put them in cooler. Loaded up on the meats and veggies. Bag of chips and a Keystone.

I had a buddy last night post a pic from his camping trip this weekend. They cooked all this up then did some canoe camping with all the leftovers.

Now that's good camp food. :lol:

Try couscous any flavor you like. Mix in canned tuna or chicken. Cooks quick add boiling water.

Those noodle or rice packs work well also, but cook 7 minutes. Mix in meat as well.
