Campfire Recipes for Great Outdoor Campfire Cooking
Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten was cooked over a campfire. I don’t know if it was because the time leading up to the campfire is always full of appetite-inducing exercise or if it’s because of the camaraderie or if it’s just the hearty flavor that a campfire and the outdoors adds to food. Whatever the reason, if there’s some campfire cooking going on, I want to be there!
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or snacks – there’s always something great that can be cooked on the campfire. Here are some great recipes to try:
These “Campurritos” from Ninth and Bird are made at home, wrapped up and then taken with you on your camping trip to warm up for a quick morning meal
Campfire Meat Pies (these are made ahead, wrapped in foil and then warmed in the campfire) from Christy Jordan’s Southern Plate
Osso Buco with Beer, Olives and Gremolata from Family Spice (note, this isn’t a recipe but a brief explanation of how she adapted her recipe, found here, to the campfire.)
Campfire Breads and Snacks
Here are THREE great campfire dessert ideas from MomClicks
And here’s a little idea from one of my Facebook Fans
Instead of the usual S’Mores, her family makes a S’mores Buffet! They have the usual graham crackers and marshmallows but then they add all kinds of different things. Great ideas include a variety of chocolate types (dark, white, with sea salt, etc.), peppermint patties, tuille crackers, ginger snaps, peanut butter cups, chocolate chip cookies. The possibilities are endless!
