The Five Best Campfire Recipes 

Each of these recipes is something that will delight the taste buds of all who partake. 

Toasted Cinnamon Rolls

Looking for a sweet treat that is perfect for breakfast or an after dinner snack? Consider a cinnamon roll! 

Although you could lug all of the ingredients for fresh cinnamon rolls around, it’s much easier to simply grab a tube of rolls from the grocery store. Once the fire is going, crack open the tube and separate the individual rolls. There are three ways that you can cook them: 

  1. Use a roasting fork. Simply place the roll through two tongs and hold it over the flames like a marshmallow. This method can take a lot of time and the roll will need to be turned regularly to ensure it is cooked through. 
  2. Put the rolls in a cast iron skillet. Cast iron is a great tool for cooking over a campfire and is perfect for making cinnamon rolls! Simply use the skillet as you would a dish at home with the oven and place it over the flames. 
  3. Place the cinnamon rolls directly on the Burly Grill attachment. This attachment can be moved to bring the cooking treat closer or further away from the flames. 

Chicken Kabobs

A grilled kabob is a delicious addition to any meal! For the perfect chicken kabob, you’ll want to bring: 

  1. Chicken Breasts
  2. Onions
  3. Red Peppers
  4. Dry Rub (Your Favorite Kind)
  5. Skewers

At least one hour prior to cooking, cover the chicken with the dry rub and let it rest. If using wooden skewers, soak them in cool water for at least 10 minutes prior to cooking so they don’t burn.

Cut the chicken, peppers, and onions in medium chucks and place them on the skewers. Place on the grill over the fire and cook for at least 10 minutes, turning halfway through. Check the chicken before serving to ensure that it has been cooked through. 

Pesto Grilled Cheese

Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese? 

Bring your favorite kind of bread, cheese, butter, and some pesto. Coat both sides of the bread with butter and pesto on the inside of the slices. Layer the cheese and close the sandwich. Place the bread directly on the grill and cook until the cheese has melted, turning it every few minutes to avoid burning. 

Grilled Blooming Onion 

One of the easiest snacks that can be made on the grill! 

Take one large white onion. Cut the onion into 6 – 8 wedges, stopping about ½ inch from the bottom. Place the onion on aluminum foil and pull to spread the wedges without pulling the onion apart. Coat the onion lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle your choice of soy sauce, hot sauce, or steak sauce over the onion. 

Wrap the onion tightly in the foil. Place it on the grill and cook for 30 minutes or until the onion is tender. 

S’Mores – With a Twist! 

S’Mores are the quintessential camping treat! Everyone knows the joy of eating a warm, melty mix of chocolate and marshmallows on a graham cracker. But consider changing things up just a little bit. 

Add fresh cut strawberries between the chocolate and marshmallows for an extra flavorful bite. Or, instead of using graham crackers, grab some Keebler Fudge Stripes! For another version, consider putting peanut butter on the graham crackers before the chocolate and marshmallows.
