The clue is in the name glamping… it’s meant to be glamourous camping. So you’ve packed the essentials but what are you going to eat whilst you’re away?
When you’re glamping it’s surprisingly easy to eat like a king during your break with these fabulously tasty glamping recipes.
A tasty glamping recipe that can be made easily on your campfire stove! If you or a member of your group are vegetarian, you can always swap the beef mince for Quorn.
Ingredients (serves 6)
1kg beef mince
2 large onions
2 cloves garlic
2 tins chopped tomatoes
3 tablespoons gravy powder
1 to 3 tablespoons chilli powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tin kidney beans
1 packet of chopped mixed peppers (for ease)
Chop your onion and garlic and brown in a pan with the mince. Drain the kidney beans and add them along with the peppers and chopped tomatoes. When it comes to adding your chili powder there is no right amount. It is entirely up to you how much or little you’d like to put in. Sprinkle in your cumin and let the pot simmer. If the sauce isn’t thickening add your gravy powder and voila! Serve with rice or even a baked potato for a hearty glamping meal.
The beauty with skewers is that you can put anything on them, pop them on the BBQ and enjoy and for this reason they are a real favourite when it comes to glamping recipes. Here’s an easy recipe for pesto prawn skewers as they consist of only three ingredients, plus Scotland has some of the best seafood in the world!
500g. medium or large frozen prawns, deveined, thawed
3 lemons, thinly sliced
8 skewers, soaked in water 20 minutes
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Freshly ground black pepper
170g of green pesto
Pre-heat your BBQ. Skewer the shrimp and lemon slices accordingly. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pop on the BBQ turning occasionally until the prawns are opaque and the lemons slightly charred (usually around 5-6 minutes). Brush with pesto and enjoy.
This tasty glamping recipe is a twist on a classic. Gone are the days when you covered your corn-on-the-cob with butter, bacon is the way to live!
Corn-on-the-cob (quantity depending on how many you’re feeding)
A packet of smoked bacon (unsmoked if you’d prefer)
Possibly the easiest of our glamping recipes as all you need to do is wrap a couple of pieces of bacon around the corn-on-the-cob, wrap them in tin foil and grill on your BBQ. Wait 20 minutes, unwrap and dig in.
As we mentioned earlier, Scotland is known for its incredible local seafood. So here is another fishy dish to sink your teeth into.
Ingredients (serves 4)
4 small fish steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Sprinkle the salt and pepper onto both sides of the fish steak. Mix the melted butter with lemon juice and set aside for now. Place the fish in the tin foil for 7-10 minutes. Cover in the butter and lemon mixture and cook for another 7-10 minutes turning occasionally. We would suggest serving with a mixed pepper salad and potatoes but it goes great with just about anything.
And there you have it. The main thing to remember when planning your glamping recipes is pack tinfoil, it’s extremely handy! If you're sticking to the classic camping recipes you can easily glamp them up a bit.
