You may have mastered cooking in the kitchen but have you tried making a scrumptious meal on an open flame while camping? There is nothing comparable to the smokey and savory taste of campfire cooking. Whether you are a camping pro or just getting started, these campfire recipes are sure to fill your stomach for the adventures ahead and leave your mouth watering for more!


Blueberry Cinnamon Breakfast Bread

  • 1 loaf cinnamon-raisin bread (1 pound)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk or half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided

Be sure your campfire is not at full flame. Grease double thickness, heavy-duty foil and place bread slices on top. Create a bowl shape with the foil by bringing up the sides and leaving the top open. Whisk eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla in a separate container. Pour over the egg mixture over the bread. Sprinkle the bread and mixture with nuts and 1 cup blueberries. Fold the tin foil over the top and then pinch to seal.

Place a grill grate over top the hot coals. Place the tin foil pack on the grate and allow to cook for 30 minutes until the eggs are done. Lift from heat and let stand 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries and drizzle with maple syrup.


Lemon-Herb Salmon Foil Wraps

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 4 fresh dill sprigs
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 medium lemon, sliced

Use hot coals from the campfire but not a full flame. Using four pieces of double thickness, heavy-duty tin foil, spread butter in the center of each. Place one salmon fillet in the center of each. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add onion, garlic, dill, basil and lemon to each salmon foil packet. Fold foil around fillets. Pinch to seal. Place packets on a grill grate, cook for about 10 minutes. Remove from grill. Open carefully because of hot steam.

BBQ Hot Dog & Potato Packet  

  • 1 package refrigerated red potato wedges (20 ounces)
  • 4 hot dogs
  • 1 small onion, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Using medium heat, be sure the campfire is not at full flame. Place potato wedges among four pieces of double thickness, heavy-duty tin foil. Place a hot dog in each. Include onion wedges and cheese. Drizzle with barbecue sauce. Fold foil around ingredients. Pinch to seal. Place on grate for 12 minutes. Open foil carefully because of hot steam.


Apple Pie on a Stick

  • 1  cup sugar
  • 1  tablespoon cinnamon
  • 4  cooking apples
  • 4  dowel or roasting sticks

In a separate container, mix together sugar and cinnamon and set aside. Push the stick or dowel through the top of the apple until it reaches the other side.  Holding the dowl, roast the apple 2 to 3 inches above the bed of hot coals and rotate it frequently. The skin will start to brown and juice will ooze out. Once the skin loosens, remove the apple from the coals. Keep it on the stick. Peel the skin. Be extra careful when peeling, the apple is extremely hot.

Breakfast Bag

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. refrigerated hash browns (thawed if frozen)
  • 1 cup ham, chopped
  • 2 cup cheddar, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 tsps fresh chives, chopped

Be sure your campfire is at medium-high heat. Hot coals but not a full flame. In a large resealable plastic bag, crack eggs, add milk and season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix in hash browns, ham and cheese. Using double thickness, heavy-duty aluminum foil, divide into four separate sheets. Butter each sheet and place breakfast mixture in each evenly. Fold tightly and pinch to seal. Place on grill grate for about 12 minutes. Open foil carefully. Garnish with chives.
