Camp fire seems to give food a little je ne sais pas. Or maybe we’re all so hungry from all the outdoor adventures we have enjoyed that day?
Either way, I can state truthfully – the most enjoyable and flavourful meals that I have eaten, have been fireside. I wanted to share these recipes with you that I learnt through Girl Guides, camping with friends and pure trial and error. These are the hit list of our campfire cooking recipes, and the go to ones we use most often when we’re out camping.
5 Best Campfire Cooking Recipes
Carefully cut a little hat on your navel orange. Scrape orange guts out with a spoon and eat them. Mix up a box of cake mix (according the directions) and fill up your orange about 3/4 of the way full. Replace orange lid, wrap in aluminum foil and toss into campfire.
Dinner Pack: Sausage and Veggies
Grab your favourite sausage, add in peppers, onions and garlic or add in zucchini, kale and garlic. Wrap in aluminum foil and toss into the campfire.
There’s nothing that says summer quite like corn! As soon as the bountiful ears start flowing from Taber, we grab them and start grilling. You can throw the ears (without peeling) right on to your campfire grate, and just rotate them occasionally. When the outside skin appears black, that means they are done. This definitely works best over a bed of coals.
Fire Roasted Potatoes
This one is a classic and it’s simple. Poke a few holes in a potato, wrap it in foil and toss it into the campfire. Let it cook for approx 20 minutes (more if it’s a larger one), then enjoy with sour cream, chives or butter and cheese!
No camping trip would be complete without the yummy gooey melted chocolate and marshmallows nestled in a graham cracker. You can go all gourmet with your S’more, (adding bacon and the like) but I still think the classic is the way to go.
