Mealtime is more fun when it’s cooked by the campfire. While S’mores are likely the first campfire food most people think of, there are many more options to keep your family fed. Keep these fun campfire foods in mind for your next trip out to broken bow cabins.
These warm sandwiches are a campfire staple. Pudgy pies are made in a pie iron and offer endless opportunities for customization. To make a pudgy pie, butter the outside of the bread and place it butter side down in the pie iron. Then place your fillings of choice inside. Savory filling options are more common, but pudgy pies make great desserts when filled with jam and chocolate.
Everyone loves a good plate of nachos. This appetizer is easy to make over a campfire and is sure to please a crowd. Simply place all your favorite nacho ingredients into a cast-iron skillet. Then cover the skillet with foil and place directly on top of the coals. The key to making delicious campfire nachos is to place them over medium to low coals to prevent burning. After 10 minutes, remove the pan from the fire and dig in.
Campfires are great for roasting items on a stick. Kebabs offer a new option to the traditional campfire stick foods like hotdogs and marshmallows. Simply place chunks of marinated meat onto your roasting sticks to cook over the fire. This technique works great with vegetables as well so any vegetarians in the group won’t be left out of the fun.
Corn on the cob is a great campfire food. Cooking corn directly over flames is quite easy. All you need to do is soak the ears of corn in water for 30 minutes prior to tossing them on the fire. Depending on the size of your ear of corn, they will be done cooking in 10-20 minutes.
Your campfire is good for more than roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. Keep the whole family well feed and involved in mealtime with these delicious campfire foods.
