I am a great fan of the Boat Galley Cookbook and website for easy, nutritious and tasty meals. After all, we are commandeering "land yachts" are we not? The Boat Galley Cookbook

Oh good one! Now why haven't I thought of this??? We love to cook, like REALLY cook, when camping and I'm always looking for ideas. Costco has great deals on packages of smoked salmon. I can see this made into a smoked salmon dip or cold salad for a lunch, appetizer, or snack and/or stuffed into an omelet the next morning.

Or, you know, eat it as is. Thanks for the great idea, Honda!

Another smoked foodie that's good for camping... I try to always carry a stick of smoked sausage like salami or summer sausage that also doesn't need to be refrigerated. The kids usually suck it down before I can do any cooking with it, but it can also be sliced and tossed into mac and cheese or eaten as is.

Which reminds me, I'm gonna have to talk to our kids about eating my applewood-smoked Sangiovese wine and fennel smoked salami when we were camping this past weekend...

In the title of your posting you say "no electric". Are we to assume you will not have an electric hook-up but will have the ability to cook with propane or campfire? You also mention using a Dutch oven. It seems to me a Dutch oven is much too large for one person unless you have an enormous appetite. Is your Dutch oven for home use (without legs, usually enameled) or camping use (with legs, usually cast iron)? Have you thought of using a pie iron? There are lots of yummy main dish and dessert recipes that can be cooked over a fire or even over your camp stove. Easy To Make Pie Iron Recipes

That trip is actually long over, but a pie iron is a great idea.

We have a small square griddle that fits on the grate of our small propane grill .
This allows us to cook both breakfast and dinner outside and using the same cooking appliance. Plus using the propane grill allows us to regulate the heat so food on the griddle does not burn

I've been making my own backpacking meals for a few years now, started out with "Freezer Bag Cooking" from TrailCooking.com. Have come up with a lot of my own recipes, as I didn't eat animal products for a long time. No reason you couldn't make them in a pan, they all pretty much just require boiling water. I get requests all the time to make all the meals for our trips, we only carry alcohol stoves to boil water, no dishes to do as well! I dry a lot of my own ingredients, so I know they're fresh and healthy. You can buy small portions of individual seasonings, etc. from minimus.biz or Packit Gourmet. Packit Gourmet also makes some amazing meals!

Good thing about this method is that it is lightweight, stores small, and the costs can be kept down as you buy/prepare in bulk. Supplement with fresh fruit and veggies and there's no reason to go hungry or get bored.

I'm a fan of aluminum foil cooking. Wrap a bagel with some sliced sausage & cheese, wrap and toast on fire or grill. Meat & diced potatoes, carrots, parsnips etc., wrap and cook on fire or grill. Commonly called a hobo dinner.

For short trips one can combine and wrap at home, hobo dinners can be wrapped at home and frozen. Or ingredients can be cut up at home and combined on the foil just before cooking.

Foil is the pot and the plate, not much to clean up after if the prep is done at home.

I like the foil supper idea, too, especially with prepping at home. I did want a fire or charcoal so just cooking on the propane stove did not appeal to me. (I've done that.) What I ended up doing was using my Dutch oven with a pan inside to bake a quiche which made dinner and breakfast- but I didn't enjoy it that much the next day so next time I'd try something different.

Camp meals can be fun, tasty and good for you. There was a cook book we got a hold of several years ago, well a lot of years ago. That cook book has a list of what I call sack meals you can get at the grocery store. The next column a list of tinned meats. Then there was spices and other flavorings which included soup mixes. The idea is to take one from each column.
I use a ceramic lined skillet as my primary cooking pan. No stick and easy to clean.
Breakfasts can be fun too. Depending on they type of cooking implements you carry. Simple using my ceramic lined griddle, there's eggs and fried bread (makes toast), or pancakes. Hot water and instant oat meal to which you can add raisins and or nuts. We also carry three pie irons to be uses over a camp stove, charcoal, or an open fire. The round one makes a very nice camp version of an egg McMuffin. One is a waffle iron, waffles cooked over an open fire. The other is a double square, a square version of an egg McMuffin two at a time.

The options and variations are unlimited.

PeanutButter sandwiches and rum. A minimalist menu from my sailing days, but works for RVing too.

When traveling and i want a quick meal I just use my frying pan (its a deep one) on the propane stove and wipe up a stir fry - small package of chicken strips, noodles and a small package of mixed veggies (found in the packaged salad department) all done in five minutes - one pot to wash. Soya sauce and sesame seeds are stock pantry items in my trailer.
