One of the most fun things about camping has been the outdoor cooking experience. There is something very comforting about watching campfires dotting a field, as the sun starts to go down, while you're huddled over your own (blowing and coughing and sputtering, and fanning frantically. I just ruined the mood there didn't I? Sorry!). Over the last few years we've made our fair share of meals over a campfire and on our handy portable hob (purchased after much research. About as much as went into buying the cute camp cooking set and toaster!).
If you're a camping newbie, here are 5 really easy and tasty camping recipes.
You must know by now that I really love a toast with toppings. I've shared my all-in-one grilled toast recipe a few months ago, and also my avocado toast recipe and sesame prawn toast recipe. This cheese corn toast is another favourite. And like the ones before, it's quick, simple, and tasty.
I'm obsessed with prawn toast. What? You didn't know? I'm good at hiding my obsessions :) Can't imagine a Chinese/Thai meal out/ takeaway without prawn toast. But I've never dared to make it at home - didn't want to ruin it for myself if it turned out terrible!
Then, last year my friend and I decided to make ourselves a Thai dinner, and I bravely suggested prawn toast to complement her green curry. And then, earlier this year, my husband and I got ourselves a dim sum steamer (more on this later!) and we decided to cook up a Chinese feast, which had to include prawn toast of course. So I've had a bit of practice!
I'd never eaten an avocado. Guacamole doesn't count. So when all of Instagram suddenly erupted with pictures of avocado toast, I decided it was time I joined in the fun. Here's my avocado toast recipe.
We've been on a mission to make our Saturday mornings healthier and tastier. No more leftover pizza from a lazy Friday night in, no more skipping breakfast altogether because we have nothing in the fridge, no more dashing to Sainsburys for last-minute custard crowns. Those days are gone. So what's this all-in-one grilled toast all about?
