3 quick recipes for your camping trip

3 schnelle Rezepte für deinen Campingtrip

It's easier than you think to cook quickly and deliciously when you go camping. Because often it should go quickly just in the van or tent and you have only 1-2 hobs available. Since constant gas refill can be annoying, you may also want to save here and not, for example, a spaghetti Bolognese sauce boil down for several hours. Whether you're a seasoned camper or a first-timer, these dishes are perfect for any occasion and easily adaptable to your needs. So grab your cooking utensils and let's get started!

Just before the pasta is cooked, cut 1 scoop of mozzarella into small cubes, add it to the pot and stir it in so that it can melt.

Tortillia-Wraps "What you want/have"

Wraps are really such a simple camping food and everyone can make them themselves what they like to eat.

You can make the wraps yourself with a simple dough and bake them in a pan. Or just buy ready-made in the supermarket.

Tortillia-Teig Zutaten: 

375 g wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt
60 ml vegetable oil
160ml warm water


Put the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Now add the oil and water and mix with a fork until the dough clumps together. Then transfer the dough to a work surface and knead with your hands for about 2-3 minutes until smooth and pliable. Form the dough into a ball, cover with a tea towel and let rest for 15 minutes.

Now cut the dough ball into 8 equal pieces, depending on how big you want the tortillas to be.

Dust each piece of dough with a little flour, shape into a ball and flatten with the palm of your hand. Roll out thinly thereafter with a rolling pin or bottle.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and brush with a little oil. Fry the patties for about 30- 45 seconds per side or until brown.

Either serve the tortillas warm immediately or let them cool for later.

To prevent the tortillas from getting hard after baking in the pan, I recommend you wrap them in a slightly damp cloth.

Here times basics for wraps: 

  1. Sauce:

Barbecue sauce, curry ketchup, tzatziki, sour cream, chili sauce, Asian sauces, soy sauce, etc.

Cheese spaetzle with fried onions

2 packages of fresh spaetzle (from the refrigerator)
1 tablespoon margarine or butter
150 g grated cheese (e.g. Emmental)
about 75-100 g roasted onions

Melt the margarine or butter in the pan. Add the spaetzle and heat. When they are golden, sprinkle the grated cheese on top and turn the spaetzle until the cheese is nicely stringy. As soon as you put the food on the plate, sprinkle fried onions on top. And the cheese spaetzle are ready to serve.

A green or mixed salad is also a great side dish if the spaetzle dish alone isn't enough for you.
