Share and Enjoy !

The weather might be turning colder, but it’s still not the time to pack away your camping gear. Camping can provide many benefits during the colder months of winter, and winter camping is one of the most rewarding forms there is. But before you head out on your next adventure, make sure you’ve got plenty of these yummy campfire meals for yourself and whoever you might be sharing them with.

1. Campfire Pizzas

All you need are some mozzarella cheese, pizza dough, tomato sauce, and toppings of your choice. Place the dough flat in a pan and add sauce as well as toppings of your choice! Cook in the campfire for five minutes, turn, cook for another five minutes, and you’re done! Another option is to use puff pastry and add in your favorite breakfast ingredients to create a delicious (and flaky) egg and sausage breakfast pizza.

2. Grilled Cheese Sandwich in Toasty Bread

Take your favorite rustic loaf of bread, throw it in a pan, spray it with some olive oil spray, place cheese inside, throw it on the fire for a few minutes to warm up your bread. You will soon be craving for a bite of the crispy bread and creamy melted cheese.

3. Cinnamon Rolls

Make your own cinnamon rolls with a tube of premade cinnamon rolls, a stick, and a warm, toasty campfire. When you are ready, you can twist and cook the rolls over the campfire. These cinnamon rolls are great for dessert, breakfast, or even an afternoon snack.

4. Campfire Bacon Mac-n-Cheese

You can use any kind of macaroni product you want, but the best is the one that comes in a box. These ready-to-eat macaronies are packed with flavor, so all you have to do is wait for the fire to heat up your noodles before eating them. Sprinkle some cut-up bacon at the end and you have a delicious meal for any time.

5. Campfire Donuts

In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Then add cinnamon and sugar to taste. Form the mixture into small balls with your hands and place them on a pan that will fit into your campfire.  When all of the donuts are cooked, brush them with melted butter and enjoy!

6. Campfire S'mores


These s’mores require very little preparation time so you can enjoy them as soon as you strike a fire. Simply take graham crackers or whole wheat pita bread, spread peanut butter on them, and set them in front of the campfire for 30 seconds on each side.  Soon they will be crunchy and gooey delicious!

7. Campfire Breakfast Burritos

Instead of adding traditional meat, you can pack a bowl of hash browns and cheese instead for a cheesy breakfast burrito. Add a side of ketchup or salsa or condiment of your choice.

8. Campfire Omelets

Take your eggs and break them into a bowl. Pour in half of the milk, stir with a fork, and pour the mixture back into the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste, cover, and cook over the fire for 5-6 minutes. After you are done cooking, put your eggs on an edible plate or plastic bag. You can now enjoy your meal with a side of toast or tortilla chips.

9. Campfire Apple Pie

With a little bit of effort, you can make an apple pie that tastes as good as it does in the store. Take a pie dish, coat the bottom with oil and packing peanuts, and place apple slices on top. Pour in your favorite pie filling and cook over the campfire for 10-15 minutes. Add cinnamon and sugar for taste along with brown sugar and butter for a more traditional flavor.

10. Campfire Nachos

Take some tortilla chips, cut them in half, and throw them in your pan.  Add some cooked bacon on top of your chips, followed by shredded cheese (and maybe some jalapenos). Cook for 5 minutes on each side to get the crisp texture you love so much. With only a few ingredients and simple preparation time, these nachos are perfect for any cold camping trip.

Final Words

There are many great campfire meals out there, and you can even create your own using some basic ingredients and some creativity.  I hope that this blog post has inspired you to try some of these meals for yourself or for your next camping trip.

  1. Each campfire treat dish is easy to make, uniquely healthy, or fit for dessert, and only takes up a quick read-through and includes some delicious photos. We’ve tried three of the ideas so far, with the Cinnamon Rolls being our favorite, and we’re excited to try them all. This one is an excellent blog for campfire enthusiasts who want to do more than just roast hotdogs and marshmallows. It’s ideal for grandchildren, if I may add.
