10 Easy and Cheap Camping Meals

Omelets in a bag – Using gallon-size Ziploc bags and boiling water you can make homemade omelets for your whole family.  Crack the eggs into each individual bag–I like to use 2 eggs per person. Then add in what I like to call the “cleaning out the fridge” toppings–peppers, onions, cheese, ham, sausage, spinach–whatever you have on hand.  Add them to the cooler and in the morning boil a large pot of water.  Drop each bag into the boiling water and cook them for about 12-13 minutes.  After the allotted time, carefully pull out the bags, slide the omelet on to your plate and enjoy!

Campfire roasted apples – This is an easy and yummy dessert with just 4 ingredients–apples, cinnamon, sugar and butter.  Core and slice your apples so that they can still fold up to the apple shape. I used a Pampered Chef apple slicer but a sharp paring knife does the trick, too.  Transfer the apple to the foil and use the foil to help keep the apple shape.  Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon an all the apple slices and then add about 1 TBS of cut butter slices into the center of the apple.  Wrap the foil around the apple so it forms a secure package.  Add the apples to the coals, turning sides about every 5 minutes.  Roll it out of the fire and let it cool for a couple minutes and then dig in and enjoy.
