I don't like the fake meats, tried that last year camping and was the worst weekend ever because it was awful. I'm looking for things I could bring to make sandwiches, breakfast, oil based salads, etc.

Or give me some ideas I never thought of. What do you do?

Obviously I'll bring along my bags of vegan marshallows :)

vegan s'mores

hobo stew (here is the recipe on my blog; I didn't invent it, but you can get an idea of what is involved)

veggie kebabs (did these on a 3-day canoe trip, and they were so easy and yummy)

corn on the cob

I'm pretty much obsessed with anything that can be buried in coals and then eaten.

If you have any cast iron stuff, the possibilities are endless. If you are lucky enough to have a cast iron dutch oven or one that is made to be used over open flame, you could make crazy stuff like deep dish pizzas, casserole-like dishes, breads, etc.

In the past I've brought snacky foods like fruit and chips...but also some chili kept in the cooler and heated over the fire and veggie dogs, also cooked over the fire. You can do Tasty Bite, too! And what about some salad-like foods like pasta salad, tabbouleh, couscous, ceviche etc.

we used a cast iron to make biscuits and gravy from VWAV and it was one of the best meals i have ever, ever eaten.

I think the old forum had some threads on this but some staples when I camp:

I'm assuming you are doing car camping so here are some things I've done
Chili (this can be made from canned beans, tomatoes and spices - or made ahead and put into a baggie/tupperware)
Baked potatoes with chili on top (you can bake the potatoes in the fire)
Hobo packets (veggies, tempeh, spices)
Chickpea salad sandwiches (chickpea salad - look for mock tuna salad recipes for a general idea)
Coleslaw (make ahead of time or make the sauce ahead of time and take shredded cabbage with you)
Grilled veggies and portabellas (marinate ahead of time, cook on the grill)

sandwiches are a simple one, they can get pretty fancy too if you make a muffuletta.
i second the kabob idea, so yummy!
baked beans
potato, pasta, quinoa salads
oatmeal
cereal and whatever kind of milk
cornbread
bbq seitan or tofu
tempeh bacon
hash of many kinds
baked potatoes
pancakes
hot cocoa, tea, coffee

the list goes on and on. it really just depends on how much you are willing to do ahead of time and how fancy you want to get. making and eating food out in nature is so amazing, hope you have a great time!

I second the Kebabs and Hobo Packs!! Usually I throw in potatos, bell pepper, carrots, Field Roast brand "sausages", mushrooms, fresh herbs, and tons of spices and eat it with rice (cooked separately of course). There's a real art to correctly folding one so I would research that. I also usually make the potato salad from Vcon. Last time we brought some bagels, tofutti cream cheese and jalapenos for breakfast.
