Easy Campfire Skillet Recipe; Sausage, Broccoli, Rice

If you’ve ever climbed a mountain then you know there’s only one thing you’re worried about when you get back to the bottom. Food!

Here’s a tasty and healthy recipe that brings all of the nutrients your body needs to replenish after a long hike. It’s easy to cook up, and can be prepped beforehand for a fast cook time.


1 Tbs Olive Oil

1 Tbs Butter

1 lb Smoked Sausage

2 Cups Broccoli Florets

1 1/2 Cups Cooked White Rice

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper

1/2 tsp Salt

How to Store It To Be Cooked Out On The Trail

To store this meal prep to later be cooked on a trail skillet, you’ll want to leave it at your campsite in an ice chest until the day it is going to be used. If you do not plan to utilize a primary camp site and you are thru-hiking, this will need to be cooked on day 1. Provisions are better to take when thru-hiking.

For storing:

Put the sliced sausage, cut broccoli, cooked rice, butter, and mixed seasonings in separate ziploc bags. Put all of the ziploc bags in an airtight container and label it. If stored at primary campsite with an ice chest, this meal prep will stay good for five days before or after cooking.

How To Make It

1) Heat A Camp Skillet: Over medium high heat.

2) Add Butter & Olive Oil: Until Melted

3) Add The Sausage: Cook for about 5 min or until the sausage begins to brown.

4) Add The Broccoli: Cover and reduce the heat to low, cooking for about 5 min, and stirring occasionally.

5) Add The Cooked Rice

6) Sprinkle The Seasoning: Garlic powder and onion salt.

7) Stir Well: Then Serve!

After The Meal

Using the container that you had the ziplock bags in, you can store the leftovers by sealing them inside and replacing the container into the ice chest.
