Here are three great hot dog camping recipes that will kick-start a great camping menu and will make you fall in love again with the camp hot dogs.
Note: Most of these recipes allow you to prepare some ingredients at home and bring them in a camping bag making meal time at your campsite much easier.
1. Veggies and Dogs Casserole
The first recipe to try on with your hot-dogs is called “Veggies and Dogs Casserole”. It is a perfect recipe for feeding kids and you can cook this meal with minimal effort or cookware right over the fire. Not to mention that casseroles are perfect for feeding a large group of people.
- Box of spiral pasta
- 5 Hot Dogs, Chopped Thin
- 2 Cups of Spinach
- 3 Tomatoes, Chopped Thick
- 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 2 Cups of Parmesan
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- Place a pot of water on your camping stove or the fire grate and add a box of noodles. Let them cook until they’re parboiled.
- After they are parboiled, drain the noodles, add the olive oil and pour this mixture in a Dutch Oven or a large pot that can be placed directly into the coals.
- Then add the veggies, hot dogs, cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup of Parmesan.
- Mix everything together and place your Dutch oven in hot coals; then put a few coals on top of the lid. Let the casserole sit for 10 minutes, and check the hot dogs for doneness.
- You can top the dish with another cup of Parmesan and it is recommended to serve hot.
2. Biscuit Cheese Dog
Two ingredients and one cooking tool, which you can find at the campsite, is all you need for one of the most basic Camp Hot-Dog recipes you can make. Use this go-to meal when you only have time for a quick dinner at the campsite.
- 1 Package Uncooked, Crescent Rolls
- 1 Package of Hot Dogs
- (Optional) 1 Package of Sliced Cheddar Cheese
- (Optional) Dijon Mustard
- (Optional) Can of Baked Beans
- Lay the crescent rolls out and roll your hot dogs inside of them. If you want to include cheese, lay one or two slices on the uncooked crescent roll and roll it in with the hot dog.
- Stick one corner of the roll to the other, so the hot dog stays in, and then put it on the end of a stick.
- Take the prepared sticks and cook over the fire until the rolls and hot dogs are cooked through. You can even leave your kids to cook them over fire, making it a fun and entertaining process.
- Pull your finished cheese dogs off the sticks and serve with a side of baked beans and Dijon mustard for dipping, or enjoy it all by itself.
