Camp Cooking: For Kids - Part 1

As kids our family used to go camping all the time. We would have our usual camping destinations around NSW where we would travel to on the long weekends with friends in our street. This was before technology devices took over our lives like kids today.

Spending a weekend in the outdoors is so much fun for kids as they get to learn new things and experience something outside the house.

In this series of posts, I will be putting 3 recipes that you and they kids can try next time your going camping. They are all simple and easy for kids to do or help out with.

Paper Bag Bacon & Eggs - Serves 1


2 strips of bacon

1 egg

1 brown paper bag

1 green, pointy stick


1. Cut both bacon strips in half, giving you 4 pieces & line the bottom of the paper bag with the bacon.

2. Crack an egg into the nest of bacon.

3. Fold the top of the paper bag down carefully 2 times and poke a hole through the thick part with the stick.

4. Carefully hold the bag over the fire so the bacon cooks slowly. Take care and keep cooking until the egg is done.

5. Eat it out of the bag or put it on a plate

Jaffle Iron Pizza - Serves 1


2 slices of Bread

Handful shredded cheese

Pizza sauce


20g of your choice of meat


1. First you butter two pieces of toast and put the buttered sides down onto the pie iron.

2. Put pizza sauce, meat and cheese on the top of one slice of bread.

3. Close the jaffle iron and cook on the fire. Just be careful not to put it in the hot spot of the fire or you will get burnt crusts.

4. Check on it occasionally to make sure you don’t over cook it.

5. When ready use a knife to help life it out and put it on a place.

CAUTION: It will be very hot when you bite into it straight out of the fire.
