Camping Recipes Roundup & Camping Cookware Giveaway!

Summer is a popular time for folks to get outdoors, be with nature and camp! I personally have not camped out in the wild in a tent, but I hope to cross that off my list soon. One of the reasons I haven't is because I wasn't sure how I'd handle meals. Sure, I could pack up food made in advance or rely on food that doesn't need much refrigeration, but I can only take so many sandwiches in a day lol. Thankfully, I have some great foodie friends who have reminded me of some camping meals. In fact, there are some great camp friendly recipes I definitely need to check out and add to my list!

So with camping recipes in hand, what else should I pack for my outdoor kitchen? That's where my friends of Dupont Teflon helped me out. They sent me a Bugaboo Camper Cookware Set to review just as I was planning my upcoming outdoor excursion. This Bugaboo Camper cookware set is fully equipped to meet the needs of a four person family camping adventure. It includes fun color-coded insulated mugs with lids, bowls and plates which will prevent mix ups at the campsite. They're made from lightweight and flexible food grade polypropylene plastic and they're easy to pack, stack, and store. As for the cookware, it comes with a 2L pot with lid, a 3L pot with lid, a fry pan, a pot gripper/collapsible handle and a waterproof carrier that doubles as a sink or wash bin. The cookware pieces have a Teflon® Classic nonstick cooking surface which help speeds up cleaning and resists scratches.


Honestly, as I unpacked the cookware set I was already impressed. I'm surprised how all the pieces fit nicely into a single pot. This just goes to show how well designed the cookware is, making it an effective and efficient item to include in your camping gear. But how does it do while in use? I have yet to use the cookware over a life outdoor fire, but I did test it on my gas stovetop. It worked perfectly. I made scrambled eggs in the fry pan and also boiled potatoes & made mashed potatoes in one of the saucepans. Everything came out perfectly and the pieces were really durable. 

Aside from camping, I thought this set would also be great for those going away to college. With servingware and cookware all included, any college student can appreciate this set. As the school season is fast approaching, I would recommend this product for any college bound student. I know I would have appreciated this when I was in college!

So there you have it... this Bugaboo Camper Cookware set is highly recommended! And becuase I'm such a fan, the folks of Dupont Teflon are offering up a set for a lucky reader. If you'd like a chance to own one of these for yourself, please leave a comment with a camping tip or favorite camping food. A winner wil be randomly chosen and announced on Sunday, August 4th so comment away - Good luck!

In the meantime, here are some camping recipes fellow foodie friends have generously shared with me. Check out their recipes by clicking on the recipe titles and enjoy viewing the other tempting dishes on their sites!

  5. My husband is camping now. He returns tomorrow and then we go again on Saturday with 7 Brownies. It will be the first camping experience for most of the girls. I love to use my cast iron Dutch oven to make one pot meals. I'll make rice or pasta ahead of time and pack it in storage bags in the cooler to add to whatever I've cooked over the fire.

  6. Love the idea of "walking tacos" in frito bags! We are just starting our foray into camping cooking, so this set would be a great boost to create awesome recipes!

  9. What a great and clever post! I haven't camped in years and all of these great idea make me want to get out our tent and go!

  10. Campfire meals are one of the best reasons to go camping. I'm even a little disappointed we're staying at a lodge next month instead of a tent. It means our meals will all be bought and not made and eaten under the stars.

  11. those banana smores remind me of raspberry smores we did once...star attraction of any camping trip!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My husband & I LOVE to camp - we actually got engaged while camping! I don't have any good cookware, so this would be perfect for us!

  13. I've actually never been camping before, but I think the part I'd enjoy the most is making s'mores!

  15. We camp many times a year! Totes! I bring everything in tottes then use the empty totes as I set things up in the tent and around the campsite as table space. I will keep folded clothes on one in the tent. Plac condiments on some to free up eating space at the tables etc.... [email protected]

  25. Everything looks delicious! I love the s'mores! Very creative recipes!

  26. I didn't realize you could use those over an outdoor fire. Cast iron is so heavy, these would be much easier to work with.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very creative and fun recipes! I haven't gone camping in years, but this post makes me want to plan a camping trip. That cookware set would make cooking a breeze. Thanks for sharing!

  28. Awesome giveaway. We love S'mores and skillet bread when we camp.

  29. Can't wait for our next camping trip. The orange cake and banana smore, perfect. The cookset looks like it will be put to good use.

  30. We love packing potatoes wrapped in tin foil and just throw then into side of campfire. We top them with whatever else we cook- chili, roasted veggies, beans, whatever. Leftovers get smashed on the grill in the morning for potato pancakes. So versatile!

    Love *LOVE* this campfire set- can't believe I hadn't seen it before!!

  31. i plan on going camping soon but this does look like a great set for a college student and i can really use it thanks

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love camping with my kids so this would be a great prize to get. Best camping tip: plan ahead, check the weather forecast & bring lots of marshmallows for toasting in the fire :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. We always cook bean chili while camping!! So easy and super tasting when you have the right seasoning. Speaking of seasoning... we put our spices in mini plastic bags, and then put all those bags in an old M&M's Minis container. Keeps everything compact and sure keeps our chili tasty!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love using my dutch oven to make Bacon Cheese Pull Aparts! Quick and easy...and it has bacon! @grumpy1970

    ReplyDelete
  35. My favorite camping food is ramen noodles. I bring several bags with me. Tasty and the broth is good too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. A great use for TicTac boxes-- save them and store a small amount of spice in each one. That way, you have all the spices you want to use when camping/RVing, but you won't take up much room. This was not my idea, but one I read somewhere.
    PS Love the campfire set and how it packs together!

    ReplyDelete
  37. When using an open flame to cook with be sure to use rub bar soap on your pots before using. It makes it a heck of a lot easier to clean. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I absolutely love mountain pies. If you don't have a fire going you can use a propane stove to cook with your sandwich maker!

  39. I love camping chicken-can't wait to try the new recipes you shared on my next camping adventure.

  41. I'm actually planning a camping trip soon and I'm looking around online for ideas on what to bring with me, I'll have to try some of these recipes. I'm looking to camp in a tent, I'm interested in a real camping experience, not living inside a mobile home in the woods. I've seen this backpacking hammock that looks like it would be great to set up outside near the fire and is easy to carry. How was your camping trip? is there anything you forgot that you wish you would have brought?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Still the number one food my kids love on camping trips are the s'mores

    ReplyDelete
  43. Can't wait to try the dutch oven apple crisps
