• Trail Meals

 

With 50+ unique and hand-packed camping meals, we keep you hiking! 

   

Tuscan Beef Stew with Creamy Polenta

'The Big Easy' Gumbo

 

Packit Gourmet's trail meals are hand-mixed in small batches and packed to order.
 

Our "just add water" meals consist of all necessary freeze-dried and dehydrated vegetables, proteins and spices to create a complete meal. This dry mix is then packed as a “meal kit” to include condiments, toppings or garnishes. Whether we think a meal tastes best with a drizzle of Texas Pete’s Hot Sauce or Olive Oil is needed for a quick fry — we include it!

For example, the Austintacious Tortilla Soup includes the mix of dried ingredients (chipotle chicken, black beans, corn, tomatoes, onion, and more), as well as a packet of concentrated chicken broth, and a topping of dehydrated jack cheese and tortilla chips.


Every component you need to create a delicious home-cooked meal on the trail is 
sealed and contained perfectly in a Cook-in-Bag.

What Makes a Packit Gourmet Meal Unique?

We are unique in that we are a completely family-run business.  We remain a small business and are happy in expanding organically through word-of-mouth and reviews.

Our limited size allows us to have more control over the products that we purchase, produce and make available to our customers. Our meals are hand-mixed in small batches – and packaged by hand – so no mechanization.  This allows us to spot check flavors and quality so that we are confident that each meal going out is something we would enjoy ourselves in the backcountry.  

We also feel fortunate to be located in the Texas Hill Country – so we literally live, work and play in “the great outdoors” each and every day.

What inspires the Packit Gourmet meals?

 
 

Big'UnBurrito

Debbie mixes up a batch of Big'Un Burrito with Fajita Chicken

  

"Our roots are in the deep South regions of the United States;  but our travels have exposed us to flavors worldwide.  That being said, most of the flavors you’ll find in our meal offerings are inspired by our own home-cooking experience and the comfort foods that we enjoy best ourselves.   

For example, the Dottie of “Dottie’s Chicken and Dumplings” fame, is named after my mother  —  a world class Chicken and Dumplings cook.  So I have that “taste in my mouth” and in my memory when I am creating these meals; I keep tweaking until the flavors reach that expectation.
