Mouthwatering Campfire Snacks

WE campfire 2

There's nothing quite like gathering around a fire pit on a cool evening, roasting marshmallows and enjoying the company of friends and family. But why stop at just s'mores?

Here are some more ideas for the best things to cook while sitting around a fire pit.

1. Campfire Pizza:

Who says you need an oven to make pizza?

Bring some pre-made pizza crusts, sauce, cheese, and your favourite toppings to your fire pit. Simply assemble the pizza and cook it over the flames, rotating it occasionally for an even cook. It's a fun and delicious way to enjoy a classic dish.


2. Foil Packet Dinners:

These are a classic campfire meal and for good reason. You can easily customise the ingredients to your liking and each person can make their own packet.

Wrap up your protein, veggies, and seasonings in a foil packet and place them on the hot coals. After about 20 minutes, you'll have a delicious meal.

3. Grilled Fruit:

Grilling fruit over a fire pit brings out the natural sweetness and adds a touch of smokiness. Pineapple, peaches, and watermelon all work well.

Simply slice the fruit and place it directly on the grates over the fire. You can serve it as is or add a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

4. Baked Potatoes:

Baked potatoes are easy to make over a fire pit and make a hearty side dish.

Simply wrap potatoes in foil and place them on the coals. Turn them occasionally and after about an hour, they'll be perfectly cooked.


5. Kabobs:

Kabobs are a fun way to cook a variety of ingredients over the fire pit. You can use chicken, beef, shrimp, or even tofu as your protein.

Cut up your veggies and thread them onto skewers with your protein of choice. Grill the kabobs over the fire until they're cooked to your liking.

6. Grilled Cheese:

Yes, you can make grilled cheese over a fire pit! Bring some bread, cheese, and butter to your fire pit and assemble the sandwiches. Wrap them in foil and place them on the grates.

After a few minutes on each side, you'll have a melty and delicious sandwich.

7. S'mores Nachos:

If you're looking for a fun and unique dessert, try making s'mores nachos.

Layer graham crackers, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows in a cast-iron skillet. Place the skillet on the grates over the fire until the chocolate is melted and the marshmallows are toasted. Serve with extra graham crackers for dipping.


Thinking beyond the s'more

No matter what you decide to cook, sitting around a fire pit is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with loved ones. So gather some ingredients and get cooking!
