Campfire Cooking

I was just reading a blog and found these ideas for items to roast over an open fire and I need to document it so I'll remember them.

  • Hot Dogs (of course)

  • Marshmallows (duh)

  • S’mores - I like to melt my chocolate first in the microwave, then spread it on the graham cracker, placing my hot toasty marshmallowon top.

  • More S’mores - Use Fudge Stripe Cookies instead of the graham cracker. Kit Kats are a great chocolate substitute.

  • Doughy Biscuits - Wrap a Pillsbury biscuit around your stick and slow cook it over the fire. Then dip in melted butter. Yum.

  • Tinfoil Dinners - Place your raw ground beef in tinfoil, with cut carrots and potatoes. Then wrap twice in tinfoil and place on hot coals. Turn once or twice.

  • Candy - Put Starbursts on sticks and get them super soft and chewy.

  • Along with the doughy biscuits idea bring Lil Smokies, those mini smoked sausages , and biscuits in a can. Wrap the sausage in a piece of biscuit and put the whole thing on your roasting stick and cook over the fire.

  • Roast corn on the cob - just smother the cob in butter and generously sprinkle with parmesan cheese!

  • S’mores are good with Reese’s cups, too!

  • For tin foil dinners….try putting a couple pieces of bacon on the bottom, then your hamburger with some onion soup mix sprinkled on top, then carrots and potatoes. Great flavor!!!!

  • Try using different candy bars, such as snickers or twix? They are to die for when they are put between the melted marshmallows and graham crackers.
