8 Ridiculously Delicious Things To Cook In A Campfire

Growing up, I spent every summer camping.
Every summer, ages 3-14, was spent sleeping in tents, roasting things over a fire, driving from place to place in a brown station wagon.
Even if you didn’t grow up camping and you haven’t yet perfected your fire-making technique (I prefer the tipi method) summer is the perfect time to cook things over a fire. I mean, any night that involves eating things off sticks/out of foil packets and hair that smells all piney and smokey is a win, right?

Are you camping this summer? What will you be cooking over the campfire?

I do corn on the cob in foil too. With butter, garlic, s+p, and a splash of beer or bourbon! Soooo gooood!


I love all of these ideas! I'm currently on a long camping trip right now and all of this sounds wonderful! 🙂

S’mores! But with a few upgrades – cinnamon sugar graham crackers, salted dark caramel chocolate and vanilla marshmallows. It just needs to warm up a tad in the midwest!
