3 Induction Cooktop Recipes To Try During Your Next Family Camping Trip

It's no secret that proper nourishment is essential for any type of camping trip, whether you're
pitching a tent or renting a cabin. That's just one reason many seasoned campers are investing in
portable induction cooktops to make cooking easier than ever during any camping endeavor. The
basic principles of induction heating have been applied to manufacturing since the 1920s, but
induction heating technology is also used in culinary applications due to the fact that it provides
an even cooking surface that doesn't require wood or charcoal or emit smoke. If you're heading
out into the wilderness for a camping trip anytime soon, it's important to be prepared. Here's a
quick appetizer, entree, and dessert idea to try on your induction cooktop during your next
camping trip.

Appetizer: Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes

This recipe is particularly popular with kids. Plus, it's very versatile -- the recipe calls for bacon
but can easily be substituted with a variety of vegetarian ingredients to suit all dietary needs. It's
easiest to prep the mashed potatoes used in this recipe beforehand, especially if you're working
with limited space. Plus, only 1% of the Earth’s water is suitable for drinking, so doing as much
preparation as you can before leaving for your trip can help cut back on the amount of fresh or
bottled water you need to lug along with you. This recipe is available at Spend With Pennies and
yields about eight servings. Feel free to get creative with what you add!

Entree: Honey Glazed Chicken

Staying energized is critical during a hiking or otherwise physically demanding camping trip, so
it's important to make sure your body has enough protein throughout the day. Chicken is one of
the best low-fat protein options, and when combined with honey, creates a delectably sweet and
savory dish that you're sure to love. Americans consume about 1.3 pounds of honey per person
per year, so there's a very good chance that you already have a bottle of honey in your cupboard
at home. After that, there are just a few required ingredients, including red pepper flakes, olive oil,
soy sauce, and of course, chicken breast. This recipe is provided by AllRecipes, can be prepped
and cooked in about 20 minutes, and yields about four servings.

Dessert: Fried Apple Rings

As a delightful alternative to s'mores, this kid-favorite recipe will make you feel like you're at the
fair again. It just requires a few simple ingredients: granny smith apples, flour, salt, sour cream,
buttermilk, and beer. It helps to prep the apples beforehand by washing, peeling, and coring them.
If you want, you can even slice them and prepare the batter ahead of time as well. If you come
prepared with the batter and the sliced apples, this recipe, provided by Just A Pinch, can literally
be ready to devour in a matter of minutes!

Ultimately, there are countless ways to take advantage of your induction cooktop's convenience
and versatility. It just takes a bit of experimentation and creativity in the kitchen. With some prep
work, you can whip up delicious camping meals for your entire family in no time at all!
