Campfire Recipes For A Great Time in the Wilderness
I never take the comfort of my home for granted. But once in a while, I like to take my family on a camping trip. There’s something about the wilderness that reminds you what is essential and important in life. For a foodie like me, among life’s most important necessities are campfire recipes! With these campfire recipes, singing a song around the campfire will be more. Even telling ghost stories will seem a little less scary with every bite of these campfire recipes.
1. Chili Campfire Bake
Nothing like a good hot chili to beat the cold of the wilderness. These campfire recipes will make sure your tummy is happy even outside the comfort of your home. What takes this chili to a whole new level is adding corn chips. The crunch will add great texture to your gooey cheese and soft macaroni.

Mexican food in the wilderness? Let these campfire recipes take care of that. There’s something so wonderful about cooking chicken breast, black beans, and cheese over the campfire. More flavor comes out and the meat is more tender!
3. Campfire Breadsticks
Twist your breadstick dough around a stick to make these campfire breadsticks! You can choose how you want your breadsticks to taste. This recipe has three options: sweet, savory, and cheesy!
4. Campfire Bacon
In my opinion, this is the easiest and most delicious to make among these campfire recipes. Just plain good ol’ bacon on a stick cooked to perfection over the campfire. The key is in the seasoning.
5. Grilled Corn with Herb Butter and Corn Nuts
How can you not have grilled corn on a camping trip? It’s one of the easiest campfire recipes to make. Just mix mashed butter, minced garlic, and herbs in a bowl. Brush corn with oil, season with salt, then chop. Finish the recipe by brushing your herbed mixture on each chunk of corn.
6. Ham, Egg & Cheese Bread Bowls
This bread bowl is as easy to make as it sounds. Just cut out the center of the bread with a knife, and line the inside with ham. Crack an egg inside, top with cheese, and wrap it in foil. It only takes 15 to 20 minutes to make!

8. Campfire Cinnamon Rolls
Campfire recipes wouldn’t be made for camping trips if they didn’t come in sticks. Wrap some crescent rolls around a stick and dip them in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Roast over your campfire and voila: you have campfire cinnamon rolls!

You can never go wrong with a creamy mac n’ cheese. The secret to this creamy goodness is adding Alfredo sauce to your already delicious mac n’ cheese! Put everything in aluminum tin foils and seal with aluminum foil wrap.

As with most campfire recipes for rib-eye steak, the key is choosing premium quality meat. Dry the meat, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil, and let your campfire do its magic.

Enjoy these irresistible chocolate peanut butter banana paninis for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Grilling them over the campfire will give them a smoky taste that complements the sweet filling perfectly.
