Backpacking Meal Recipes
Enjoy gourmet meals even when in the outdoors
Got some scrumptious creations?
Making your own backpacking meals is a great option compared to buying expensive freeze-dried or dehydrated meals. You can make these meals while you backpack, hike, or camp, most of which can be cooked in just a zip lock freezer bag! Many recipes consist of less expensive, basic foods that can be found at grocery stores. Specialty items, however, can be harder to find in stores, but can often be found online at Wilderness Dining, Packit Gourmet and Amazon.
Although these recipes take some time to make, they can give you the nutrition you need while backpacking. But if you’re strapped for time, there are plenty of pre-made meal ideas that you can grab on your way out the door.
