I've been dehydrating my own meals at home for easy trail prep for my last few group backpacking trips. I now have a few core recipes that I'm really happy with and that people have enjoyed. There may be more experimentation later on, but for now these are my go-to meals.
On request, I'm sharing my favorite recipes that I serve on my guided trips. Apparently I've been too busy cooking and eating the food to take many photos, but more are to come!
I'm not much of a breakfast eater myself, but I have three breakfast recipes that I typically use. Bagels, sausage, and fruit is a tasty, convenient, and filling basecamp option; Hot Breakfast Medley was adapted from another site (and renamed from 'Oatmeal' on request 😂) is great for getting an early start, and I created Mediterranean Hash to be a veggie-packed savory alternative.
For lunches, I like to do something that's easy to eat on the trail. Cheese, crackers, and salami is my favorite, but tuna is also good.
Dinner & Dessert
If evening meals are done well, they can be something to look forward to at the end of a long day. I like to prepare something tasty, warm, and filling, and prefer meals with lots of vegetables. Both of these two dinners are vegetarian, but meat could be a nice addition. Pasta Primavera was adapted from another website, but Sausage & Rice was my own creation. Of course I always like to have a dessert. Although I'm a big fan of chocolate, fruit desserts can be fun and delicious as well. For the crumble, any dehydrated or freeze dried fruit could be used.
