Cooking Around the Campfire: Simple Recipes

Although you’ve got your RV’s kitchen, sometimes there’s an appeal to the idea of starting a campfire and cooking a rustic meal over it. If you don’t have experience doing this, however, it can be a little daunting to know if you’re doing it correctly. It’s tough enough to properly tend a fire, much less to attempt to cook something over it. If you’re a beginner, try one of these two easy campfire recipes to get the basics down and build your confidence.

Camper Donuts

Ingredients

  • Biscuit dough
  • Melted butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Metal skewers

Directions

Pop open a can of refrigerated biscuit dough and cut each biscuit into thirds.  Roll each piece of dough into a ball and then thread onto metal cooking skewers, leaving about ½ inch of space between balls of dough.  Cook the dough over hot coals or your campfire, turning constantly until they’re golden brown, about seven minutes.  Being careful not to burn your hands, slide the dough balls into melted butter and toss with cinnamon and sugar.

Cowboy Casserole

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cans baked beans
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 package biscuit dough

Directions

Cook bacon in a deep cast-iron skillet or dutch oven on a grill over your campfire. Drain, crumble and set aside.  Add hamburger and onion to the skillet and cook until done.  Drain off the drippings.  Add the bacon back to the pan with the hamburger along with the baked beans and barbecue sauce.  Bring everything to a boil.  Place biscuits over the bubbly mixture in a single layer, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes until the biscuits are done.  Place cooked biscuits on a plate and spoon beans over.
