Sausage, Veggies and Spicy Rice | Easy Campfire Recipe

July 5, 2017

Camping holidays have long been a staple in my life. From grown up glamping to a fortnight on a campsite as a kid, I’ve done it and quite enjoy it! I also quite enjoy a bit of campfire cooking.

When you go away on long camping trips or off for a weekend of glamping it’s definitely wise to pack a mini kitchen so you can cook a nutritious dinner. Nights on end of pasta from a packet or dinner from a tin probably aren’t a good idea. Simply Hike have a range of camping equipment to help you with your trip. Take a mini pop up table, camping stove and a sharp knife and you’re all set for your trip.

Cook Time
30 min
  1. 8 Sausages
  2. 2 Peppers, sliced
  3. 1-2 Red Onions
  4. 1 Pack of cherry tomatoes
  5. 2 Courgettes, cut into thin half moons
  6. 1-2 Packets of pre cooked rice, we used whole grain spicy pilau rice
  7. Pepper and Salt to season
  8. 2 tbsp Olive oil
  9. Bottle of water that you can tip little bits of water in from
  1. Put the sausages a heavy bottomed pan with oil, start to cook on a medium heat on your camping stove, or a little further out of your campfire, you don't want things to burn.
  2. Prep your veg then toss in with the sausages, turn the heat down to as low as you can (or keep out of the main heat of your campfire) and simmer for 10-15 mins. You can add a few splashes of water if you think things are sticking.
  3. Pop the packet rice in for another 3-5 mins, a couple more splashes of water, grind in some pepper and salt.
  4. Serve in mess tins for that authentic camping experience!
  1. This recipe can be easily made vegetarian/vegan, just change the sausages!

The recipe I’m sharing is a perfect recipe for those of you after something a bit more than pasta from a packet cooked on a camping stove. A recipe my dad used to make for us when we went camping. The easy thing about this recipe is that aside from procuring sausages and veg (easy if you’re staying in a village or at a camp site with a farm shop) the rice comes from a ready made packet so doesn’t need much cooking. It only takes one pot – perfect for those that hate washing up.

    This sounds like a fab camping meal and different from basic BBQs!

      Thank you – definitely makes a change from BBQ or pasta from a packet!

    Perfect dinner for camping. I love having those ready cooked rice pouches at the beach hut, great aren’t they.

      They’re so good and there’s so many flavour options now as well!

    We always stick to BBQs when camping but I love the idea of this – we have a new camping stove this year so I have pinned this to my camping recipe board to try .

      On long trips I get a bit fed up of BBQ, which is why we got the stove 🙂 Hope you enjoy if you get round to making!
