Fall is the perfect time for camping – crisp days, beautiful foliage and cool nights looking up at the stars. For those of us who grew up heating canned beans over a Bunsen burner, camping cuisine might not sound too exciting. However, did you know that there are a variety of delicious dishes you can whip up in the great outdoors?
Loaded Baked Potato
There’s nothing easier and more classic than a loaded baked potato. This recipe gives great instructions for cooking them over the campfire. Top your spuds with bacon, green onion, cheddar and sour cream, or make your own creative variation.
Dutch Oven Paella
Feeling fancy? Try this Dutch oven paella, which features chicken, sausage and shrimp. Cooking it over a campfire gives this Spanish recipe an authentically crispy bottom layer!
Stuffed Baked Apple
For dessert, why not try an autumnal stuffed baked apple? Packed with cranberries, raisins, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg, with just a hint of butter, this healthy dessert will smell delicious as you cook it in foil over your campfire.
If you want to experience the great outdoors with all the comforts of fully modern accommodations, book a fall stay at Lawrence Bay Lodge. We’re located on Reindeer Lake in Saskatchewan, and offer hot breakfasts, hearty lakeside lunches and filling dinners for those who prefer to let someone else do the cooking.
