When heading out camping for the weekend I look for easy but tasty meals to bring along. I love when I can do most of the prep work at home, like with my newest attempt!
Hot Ham & Cheese
- Loaf of Italian Bread
- 6 Cheese Slices
- 18 Ham Slices
Step 1) Cut Italian Bread into 12 slices but don’t cut all the way through.
Step 2) Butter every other slice of bread
Step 3) Fold a piece of cheese in half and put between every two slices
Step 4) Place ham between cheese slices. We used three slices in each sandwich and it was proportioned well.
Step 5) Wrap in Foil
Step 6) Place over open fire for about 20 – 30 minutes and turn about halfway through.
We got 6 sandwiches out of this and both hubby, grandparents, and kiddos enjoyed it!
Hot dogs are a favorite around a campfire. When you have a big family or groups of friends that join you on an outing it can become a long process of cooking up hot dogs. Save some time and cook several at once with a rake! We tried it out this past weekend and it worked out pretty well. I bought an extendable rake which made it pretty easy to store and cook with. The rake can get a bit heavy so you can try propping it up on the fire pit grate if needed.
The next time you have a group craving hot dogs over an open fire, give a rake a try!
This week’s Campfire Recipe is a tasty one that can be tweaked and added to for a new twist each time. The Frito-Bean-Rito is one of my newest fav things to whip up and it so simple!
Campfire Recipe: Frito-Bean-Rito
- Can of Refried Beans
- Shredded Cheese
- Chili Cheese Fritos
- Foil – torn into squares
Step 1) Place tortilla on foil
Step 2) Spread on refried beans
Step 3) Layer on Chili Cheese Fritos and Shredded Cheese
Step 4) Roll tortilla up in burrito shape and wrap in the foil
Toss them in the cooler and throw them on the campfire when you get hungry. Leave them on the first for about 15 minutes, turning them occasionally so one side of the tortilla doesn’t harden. You can also freeze these ahead of time and let them defrost in the cooler at the campground.
