If you have never been “glamping,” you are seriously missing out. Not to be confused with regular camping, “glamping” is just as it sounds: glamour camping! Gone are the days of sleeping on a thin pad with a sleeping bag. Glamping is all about enjoying the wilderness in style! Of course, one of the hardest parts of camping (glamping or not) is coming up with a delicious menu that everyone will love. Fortunately, I rounded up my favorite, easy “glamping” recipes. These will definitely make your glamping trip!
Glamping Recipes That Are Beautifully Delicious
Buttermilk Blueberry Pancake
½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
zest from 1 large lemon
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour (set aside 1/4 cup of this to toss with the blueberries)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup buttermilk
Step One: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter, lemon zest, and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Next, add half of the flour to the mixture and mix with a spatula.
Step Two: Add the buttermilk to the mixture, stirring until all mixed. Add the remainder of the flour and mix so everything is well incorporated.
Step Three: Grease a medium sized cooking pan with cooking spray or unsalted butter. Pour your breakfast cake batter into the pan and bake for 35-45 minutes. Make sure the cake has fully cooked before removing it from the oven.
Alternatively, you can make this recipe in a cast-iron skillet over the fire.
Dutch Oven Lasagna
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 1/2 cups pasta sauce
12 oz fresh lasagna noodles
3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese
1 tablespoon dried oregano or basil
Step One: Begin to get your coals ready if camping over a fire. If not, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Step Two: Coat the bottom of a dutch oven skillet in a thin layer of olive oil to prevent sticking. Evenly layer the pasta sauce, lasagna noodles, spinach, and cheese until you have run out of ingredients. Make sure you are evenly distributing the spices through every layer as well.
Step Three: Next, create a bed of coals for your dutch oven to rest on. Place the oven in the center of these coals, placing the lid over top of the lasagna. Once the lid has been placed, pile the remaining coals over top of the oven. Bake for thirty minutes or until noodles are tender.
Mac N Cheese
1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
8 oz prepared Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4-1/2 cup half and half or whole milk
Step One: Begin by cooking the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside when complete.
Step Two: Stir the alfredo sauce into the cooked pasta and add in the three cheeses, mixing everything well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Step Three: Divide the Mac N Cheese mixture between four tin foil pans. Fill the pans and cover with a layer of tin foil over top. Place these over hot coals prior to eating.
No-Bake Bourbon Peach Cobbler
3 ripe peaches
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup bourbon
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup granola
Step One: In a cast iron skillet over medium heat the oil. Add the peaches in a layer at the bottom of the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the peaches get soft. Remove the skillet and pour the bourbon over your peaches (this will prevent the alcohol from setting fire).
Step Two: Place the skillet back over the fire and mix in the sugar. Mix well until the sugar melts and coats all of the peaches. Remove from heat when coated and sprinkle a cup of granola over top of your cooked peaches. Pretty tasty, right?
