2 Kid Friendly Camping Recipes

Let’s face it: kids are an adventure in and of themselves. They’re a lot of fun, but finding something everyone enjoys eating isn’t fun. No one said parenting was easy. Lucky for you, we know a thing or two about kiddos and how to keep them happy. Give these kid-friendly camping recipes a try and watch your kiddos’ faces light up with joy.

Paper Bag Eggs


From The Real Family Camping Cookbook.

Serves:  1


2 strips of fatty bacon

1 egg

salt & pepper, hot sauce, and catsup

1 paper lunch bag

1 green, pointy stick


  1. Cut both bacon strips in half, giving you 4 pieces. Line the bottom of the paper lunch bag with the bacon to make a nice, fatty bacon nest for the egg.
  2. Crack an egg into the nest.
  3. Fold the top of the paper bag down carefully 2 times and poke a hole through the thick part with the stick. (Use a knife or scissors to make the hole first.)
  4. Carefully hold the bag over the fire so the bacon cooks slowly and the fat melts.  This makes an oily paper and bacon “skillet” for the egg. Take care and keep cooking it until the egg is done.
  5. Eat it out of the bag … but put it on a plate!  If you put it on your knee it will ruin your pants. I learned this the hard way.
  6. Serve with salt & pepper, ketchup & hot sauce. But it really doesn’t need anything at all, it’s that delicious.

Rice and Eggs


From The Real Family Camping Cookbook.



4 eggs

4 strips of bacon

½ medium onion, chopped

¼ green pepper, chopped

3 c. leftover cooked rice (white or brown)

1 handful of cilantro, well washed and chopped (wash it at home)

butter or olive oil

salt & pepper and hot sauce


  1. Chop the bacon and fry it in a skillet. Remove the bacon and drain it on a paper towel, leaving the bacon fat in the pan.
  2. Wipe out all but 2 t. of the bacon fat with a paper towel. Add a little butter or olive oil and sauté the chopped onion and green pepper until soft.
  3. Add the rice and bacon and heat through.
  4. Move the rice to the sides of the pan and fry the eggs one by one in the center of the pan.
  5. As each egg is fried, scoop up a spoonful of rice and put it on the plate, then add the egg on top.
  6. Add a sprinkle of cilantro and serve with hot sauce, salt & pepper.
