Camping Food

So the whole lack of campfires knocks out all of my cooking ideas for camping. What do you make/eat when camping?

(don't say sandwiches...bleurgh)

We take a two burner gas stove and cook whatever we fancy that we can make in two pans. Pasta does figure heavily, it has to be said

Depends on what heat source I have access to and what the weather is like. Generally one pot stuff like risotto, pasta or chicken breast stews (because it's quicker).

If no heat source then deconstructed sandwiches - crusty bread, cold sliced meats, cheese and olives, salads etc.

Or crisps and chocolate if it's really bad!

Seriously you make stews and risotto? Camping? Why when you can eat that at home?

*shakes hot pie irons and lobs hobo meals at you all* I am never going to convert to liking camping in the uk.

sausage casserole.

Or get a barbecue (do NOT bring it in under cover, even after its gone out), and cook whatever you would have cooked on an open fire. Just take the grill off, non?

Again, pasta, risotto, curry or BBQ stuff. someone suggested on here to bring premade pasta sauces/curry and you just need to heat it upWe've done that and also brought fishcakes and just fried em up.

Oh BTW I've got another suggestion for you. Near Oban.
The website doesn't look amazing but my dad was there a month ago and said it was great. They have fire pits. And while you can still see other campers he said it was well spaced out and had turned away loads of bookings the weekend my dad was there as the owners don't like to pack people in. So they were turning folk away but it didn't seem that busy apparently.

will post this on the other campsites thread too.

Stews and risottos?? Really?? You guys are hardcore!

smoked mackerel that can be eaten cold and corn on the cob to heat on the stove and filled pasta with ready made sauce is ready in 3 mins are our favorites. And marshmallows of course!

Most campsites will let you have a fire pit or open BBQ if you put them on bricks. It's not a campfire but it's better than nothing. I can only take so much BBQ before I just do not want to eat it again! I generally take pesto and cooked chicken, the. If all else fails pesto pasta is on the menu!
