Single Pot, Yukon & Alaska Camping Meals


Ever get tired of eating hot dogs for dinner while out camping? Yeah, us too. Trying to find dishes to make while camping or road tripping that are a quick clean up and don’t require a full kitchen can sometimes be challenging. With minimal kitchen equipment out in the Yukon and Alaskan wilderness, the need to be creative is of high stakes. So to make things a little easier for you, we’ve come up with some delicious single pot meals!

One Pot Meal Essentials: 

Dutch Oven: A dutch oven is a thick-walled cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid. They are usually made of cast iron, some with cast aluminum or ceramic.  

Cast Iron Skillet: It is important to pre-season your cast iron skillet before use over a fire for extra protection. Even if you buy a skillet that is already pre-seasoned, a little extra protection won’t hurt. To season your pan, heat it up on the stovetop until its smoking hot, then rub a little oil into it and let it cool. Repeat this process a few time and you’re good to go!
