These outstanding recipes meet the needs of wilderness and camping enthusiasts and provide tasty homemade meals.

This wide array of recipes, from the everyday to the gourmet, includes breakfasts, main courses, side dishes, breads, high-energy snacks, desserts and hot and cold beverages. Many recipes are "just add water," and some require no cooking at all.

  • Vanilla cinnamon French toast
  • Curried chicken and apples
  • Campfire pizzas
  • Cheese and herb skillet biscuits
  • Just-add-water hummus

    If you are going on a long backpacking thru-hike trip MEC foods are very expensive and do not have enough calories. Doing your own is a much better option.

    First you buy your groceries. Then you dehydrate everything, including your meat and fish. Then you package it for specific meals. Then you add water and cook it. Easier to buy it ready-made at Mountain Equipment Co-op, and add water when needed.
