Easy Camp Meals For Two Instead Of Four

Because we usually camp with other couples and because many families have four members, I create most of my recipes to feed 4 campers.

But, when we camp alone, I easily scale these recipes back to feed two. Here are some of our favorites.

This 3-ingredient sweet treat uses refrigerator biscuits so you can make as many as you want. One package usually contains 8 biscuits so instead of making 8 donuts, make 2 for each of you (because really, who can stop at eating only 1 donut???) and bake the other 4 biscuits according to the package directions … then top them with jam or sausage gravy for breakfast!

ReInventable Leftovers Creating Easy Camp Meals For Pairs

Ok, so “re-inventable” is a word I use to describe how I make some of our favorite family-sized meals when I am camping with only one other person.

My husband HATES LEFTOVERS unless I re-invent them into something different for the second go-round.

Here’s how I make some of our most beloved recipes and serve them as two different meals.


Campfire Dutch Oven Chili Recipe

There are a couple of ways to make one of the most beloved winter camping recipes into a meal for two. You can prepare this chili as a make ahead dinner and freeze it in portion sizes with two servings … then, just take the amount you need to the campsite, defrost and reheat for a quick meal.

Alternatively, you can make the entire recipe at the campsite and eat bowls of chili the first night then re-invent the leftovers into chili-mac, chili dogs, chili burritos or chili-topped eggs for breakfast that can be served on plates or wrapped in tortillas for breakfast burritos.
