This section will be devoted to recipes that my fellow backpackers and I love to eat at home, and have tested and chosen as winners for dehydrating to bring along on the trail. Please pass along your favorites to be included here!
To get to the recipes, go up to the top of this page and click on Backpacking Skills, Planning and Food Prep, then scroll down to the ‘What’s for dinner? Tried and true comfort foods adapted…” section. To the right a list of recipes will come up. You can click on any of those to find the ingredient list, instructions for preparation of the meal at home, and how to dehydrate it and then rehydrate it at camp. Or use the direct links below. Check back for new recipes over time.
I’m interested in how these recipes turn out for you, suggestions to improve them, and also your own comfort food recipes that you’ve successfully adapted for the trail. Good luck and happy eating!
