Instructions: An outdoor taco bar is fun for groups and families! Cook meat with taco seasoning in a skillet over the campfire. Serve in tortillas with your favorite toppings. Get creative! Think about black beans, corn, avocados, and several kinds of cheese to make these tacos special.

Ingredients: Chocolate bars, gourmet marshmallows (e.g., flavored or stuffed marshmallows), and artisanal graham crackers.
Instructions: Upgrade the classic s’mores by using high-quality ingredients. Experiment with different chocolates, like dark chocolate or mint chocolate, and marshmallow flavors for a unique twist. Don’t forget the gourmet cocoa to pair with your s’mores.
Ingredients: Choose a protein (salmon, chicken, shrimp) and vegetables (asparagus, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, squash), olive oil, and seasonings
Instructions: For this glamping recipe, create foil packets with your choice of protein and veggies, drizzle with olive oil, season to taste, and cook on a campfire grate. Be sure to seal the packets tightly to steam the food properly and keep the meat moist and tender. Protip: If you are choosing chicken, soak the chicken in salt water overnight while refrigerated to make it very moist and tender.
Ingredients: Flour tortillas, seasoned and cooked chopped chicken or beef, cheese, salsa, diced onions, and bell peppers
Instructions: With this recipe, you can do all the chopping and food prep at home to make assembly over the campfire faster. Place a tortilla on a grate or skillet, add your choice of ingredients, and top with another tortilla. Cook until cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy.
Glamping Recipes Make Your Outing Memorable
Remember to bring the necessary camping cookware, utensils, and a cooler to keep ingredients for these glamping recipes fresh. And pack a cooking oil or non-stick spray for your cooking pans. Sometimes just choosing the gourmet or high-quality version of ingredients (like Gruyere cheese instead of cheddar for instance) can make your recipe sing with new flavor worthy of a glamping trip. And consider easy but impressive dishes like a cheeseboard or charcuterie board with cheeses, meats, nuts and fruits. Don’t forget some fancy dishes, silverware and cloth napkins for a touch of added luxury as well. With these glamping recipes, you’ll enjoy gourmet meals under the stars while experiencing the best of both worlds — nature and great food!
