Getting together with family and friends and filling your belly with a great lunch or dinner is one of the nicest parts of Christmas. Just because you’re camping or caravanning this holiday season doesn’t mean you can’t prepare a delicious meal.
Camping Tips for the Holidays
Filo parcels with blue cheese
Everything you love about a cheese board without the mess. Combine 150g crumbled blue cheese, 150g finely chopped dates, and 14 cup finely chopped walnuts in a mixing bowl. Cut filo pastry sheets into 4 strips, drop a spoonful of cheese mixture onto each strip, fold into a triangle box, and seal with melted butter. Cook the parcels in melted butter in a fry pan for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy.
Salads that are super
Salads are simple to make and ideal for the hot Australian weather. Rocket with pine nuts, pear slices, shaved parmesan, and balsamic dressing; a simple Caprese with slices of fresh tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and balsamic; and barbequed corn tossed with chorizo slices, avocado, capsicum, and coriander leaves with a squeeze of lime juice are just a few of the popular combinations.
Choose slices that are easy to prepare.
Instead of a whole turkey or a full roast, choose for parts that are easier to cook. Steaks and chops, as well as a butterflied chicken, are all good choices. Cooking over a campfire or barbeque will be easier, allowing you to spend less time standing over the heat and more time resting.
Steaks of glazed ham
Glazed ham steaks are a delicious way to recreate the flavour of a traditional Christmas ham without having to bake an entire ham. 14 cup maple syrup, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of minced cloves Brush the glaze on both sides of the ham steaks and cook until cooked through over medium heat. Brush with glaze on a regular basis.
Seafood in the summer
Check out the local seafood markets if you’re staying near the ocean. Cold, on ice, precooked prawns are a quick Chrissie alternative. If you have any avid anglers in your family, why not go fishing early in the morning and try to catch some lunch?
Dried fruit, nuts, and spices add a festive touch to your damper. This recipe comes from the Camp Oven Cook. It’s a delightful dessert, afternoon tea, or even a morning treat, and you can top it with whatever toppings and spreads you choose.
steamed potatoes with beer
Take a page from Martha Stewart’s book and try steamed potatoes with beer. They’re cooked in a foil bag over a campfire or on the barbeque and go well with sausages and steak.
Fondue de dessert
In a pot, break up two blocks of chocolate and melt over a campfire or grill. It doesn’t take much heat to melt something, so be careful. Remove from the fire and stir in 14 cup milk (more if you prefer a thinner consistency), then dip marshmallows and fruit into the chocolate with forks or skewers. Yum.
Pancakes with Christmas pudding
Try pancakes as a quick and easy alternative to the traditional Christmas pudding. 1 tsp vanilla, cinnamon, and mixed spice, 50g sultanas, and 2 tbsp finely grated orange zest to a regular pancake batter Cook over a campfire or on the grill on a flat dish. They’re very good with custard. Try a long-life UHT custard for camping that doesn’t need to be refrigerated before serving.
a punch of summer
A large can of fruit salad in juice and a carton of tropical juice should be frozen ahead of time. On the big day, combine the frozen fruity ice cubes with equal parts ginger ale and lemonade in a punch bowl. As the frozen fruit melts, it will release chucks of fruit, keeping the punch cold. Keep rehydrating with soft drinks throughout the day for cold drinks. During your Ingenia Holidays getaway at one of our 36 fantastic holiday destinations, make a Christmas to remember.
