    Fall-Inspired Camping Recipes

    Fall-Inspired Camping Recipes

    Fall is finally here! The best part of autumn adventures is the delicious recipes you can make right on the campsite, so we picked out some easy recipes you can make to fill your campsite with all the best fall flavors! Plus, you can make it even easier by prepping some of these meals ahead of time. While you are planning your next autumn adventure, keep these fall-inspired camping recipes on hand to try out! 

    Pumpkin French Toast

    A fall recipe guide obviously isn’t complete without a pumpkin-flavored dish. Take your breakfast to the next level with this pumpkin French toast recipe! 

    You’ll need: 

    • 4 eggs 
    • ⅔ cup whole milk 
    • ½ cup pumpkin puree 
    • 2 tsp pumpkin spice 
    • 2 tsp sugar 
    • ½ tsp sea salt 
    • 12 slices of thick-cut bread 
    • 3 tbsp butter 

    First, beat the eggs in a bowl that is big enough to fit a slice of your bread. Once you finish beating the eggs, add the milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, sugar, and salt, and mix thoroughly. Add a tablespoon of butter to your heated-up camping skillet, and then it’s time to start making the French toast. Dip each side of your bread into the mixture you created, and place it on the skillet. Cook until golden on each side, and enjoy with some maple syrup!  

    Apple Maple Sausage Sandwich

    This might technically be a breakfast recipe, but we think it would also be perfect for a campground brunch! A nice warm sandwich with delicious fall flavors- what more could you ask for? Plus, these can be prepped at home before your trip, making cooking on the campsite even easier! 

     You’ll need: 

    • 1 apple 
    • 1 lemon 
    • 1 lb ground pork 
    • 1 tbsp maple syrup 
    • 1 tsp dried sage 
    • 1 tsp fennel seeds 
    • 1 tsp dried thyme 
    • 1 tsp sea salt 
    • ¼ tsp smoked paprika 
    • ¼ tsp cinnamon 
    • 8 slices of Swiss cheese 
    • 8 English muffins 
    • 8 eggs 
    • Butter to serve 

    To start preparing this meal at home before your trip, grate your apple into a bowl and add the juice from your lemon and enough cold water to cover it all. Let that sit for five minutes, then drain and squeeze out the excess water from your apples. In the same bowl, add your pork, maple syrup, spices, and herbs, and mix thoroughly. Separate into 8 portions and form them into small little discs about the size of your English muffins. (Side note: they can be stored in Tupperware for two days, or frozen for up to two months!)  

    Once you get to the campsite, all you need to do is heat up the sausage patties you made on your griddle for about 2-3 minutes on each side. While your sausage is cooking, cook your eggs and butter your English muffins. Assemble it together and add a slice of Swiss cheese, and enjoy! 

    Five Can Chili

    For chilly evenings on the campground, warm up with this yummy five can chili recipe, which is super easy to make right on your campsite!  

    You’ll need: 

    • 1 medium onion (chopped) 
    • 1 tbsp olive oil 
    • 14 oz can black beans (drained) 
    • 14 oz can red kidney beans (drained) 
    • 14 oz can diced tomatoes (with juice) 
    • 1 can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (seeds removed) 
    • 12 oz can of beer 
    • 2 tsp sea salt 
    • 1 tsp garlic powder 
    • 1 tsp cumin  

    First, prep your chipotle peppers by slicing them open and removing the seeds. Keep some of the adobo sauce, we’ll use it later! Chop up the chipotles and set them aside. In a dutch oven, heat up your olive oil and add your onions. Once the onions begin to soften, throw in everything else. Cook the chili until thickened to your liking, add your favorite chili toppings like cheese or green onion, and enjoy! 

    Falling for Fall Trail Mix

    If you’re not bringing trail mix on your camping trip, are you even going camping? Switch up your trail mix for your fall trips with this recipe! This is a recipe you'll want to prep at home ahead of time, so it's all ready to go for your trip.

    You’ll need: 

    • ½ cup pecan halves 
    • ½ cup walnuts 
    • ½ cup pumpkin seeds 
    • ½ cup shelled pistachios 
    • ½ cup almonds 
    • ½ cup dried blueberries 
    • ½ cup dried cranberries 
    • ½ cup dried apricots 
    • ½ cup green raisin 
    • ½ cup maple syrup 
    • 1 ½ tsp pumpkin spice 
    • ½ tsp kosher salt 

    A little extra work goes into this trail mix, but it’s worth it! Add all of your nuts to a cast iron skillet on low heat, add your maple syrup and mix to make sure all the nuts are coated. Bring your mixture to a boil, and keep mixing so nothing sticks. Do this for about 3 minutes, then turn the heat off and add the pumpkin spice and salt, and stir. Add it all to a lined baking sheet and let it cool in the fridge for 2 hours. Once 2 hours is up, break up the mixture into bite-sized pieces and add all the dried fruit, and you’re done!  

    Campfire Apple Crisp

     When you think of fall, you think apples, so why not try out this delicious campfire apple crisp? Plus it only takes 20 minutes to make! 

    You’ll need: 

    • 3-4 apples (chopped) 
    • ⅓ cup oats 
    • ¾ cup brown sugar 
    • ½ cup whole wheat flour 
    • 1 tsp cinnamon 
    • ⅓ cup butter 
    • 2-3 tbsp white sugar 
    • Aluminum foil 

    In a bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, flour, and butter until the butter is evenly dispersed. Then, add in your chopped apples, cinnamon, and white sugar and mix. Fold your aluminum foil to make a boat shape, and place your ingredients in the center. Fold the edges of the foil over the top to seal it, and place on a grate over your campfire for 15-20 minutes. And there you have it, a warm and delicious apple crisp!
