With summer break on the horizon, camping season is officially here! A chance to reconnect with family, friends and the great outdoors, camping should be an enjoyable and (mostly!) stress-free experience.

The good news? Grant Fikowski, owner at M&M Food Market in Belmont Market, shares some tips and tricks for elevating your camping experience with camping-friendly, ready-made meals from M&M Food Market.

"The first night of camping can be quite the challenge," says Fikowski. "After a long drive and setting up camp, you need something quick, easy, and satisfying." He suggests starting your camping adventure with any of M&M’s wide variety of sausages that can be prepared on the barbecue or over the fire, just don’t forget the buns which are also available at M&M Food Market. Another great option are M&M’s barbecue-ready ribs, available in seven delicious flavours. These dishes not only pack a punch in flavour but are also incredibly convenient, requiring minimal effort to prepare.

Fikowski also suggests packing some easy one-pan meal solutions that can be prepared in a single skillet, making for easy clean-up. 

"Our jambalaya or lemon herb chicken and pasta kits are both perfect family-friendly meals that can be whipped up quickly and easily at the end of a busy day."

Camping wouldn’t be complete without indulging in some timeless classics. "Family memories are made while camping, and some favourites like classic frankfurters, burgers, and s'mores are a camping must-have!" M&M's classic frankfurters, beef burgers, or gourmet chicken burgers are the perfect way to create new memories with your little campers this summer. Create new traditions by bringing along some easy thaw-and-serve dessert items to keep things fresh on longer camping trips.

"Multi-meal solutions are another great way to maximize space in your coolers," adds Fikowski. "Steak, skewers, and bakery items like our pull-apart potato buns can work for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Steak, in particular, also makes a great late-night snack that can be cooked over the fire and our pull-apart potato buns happen to be a perfect fit for our new wagyu beef sliders."
