Along with the daily adventure and fun, one of the best parts of RVing is cooking over a campfire. Campfire cooking is fun for the whole family and you don’t have to stick to the same old meals. There are tons of irresistible food ideas for RV campfires so you can get good food, family fun, and fuel for your outdoor adventures.
1. Fruity S’mores
Outdoor adventures are not complete without s’mores, and you can take yours to the next level with a few tasty additions. Add strawberry slices, raspberries, or bananas to your chocolate and marshmallow layers for even tastier campfire treats.
Forget hot dog buns and instead cook hot dogs on a stick. These are just as convenient and tasty. All you need are some crescent rolls (dough),. Unwrap the dough and wrap it around the hotdogs, then grill over the campfire.
3. Fire-Grilled Corn
AS a snack or to accompany a meal, campfire-grilled corn is delicious. You get the perfect mix of smokey, sweet, salty, buttery corn in every bite. Just butter and season your corn, wrap it in foil and place it over the coals for about 30 minutes.
4. Foil-Packet Fries
Who doesn’t like fries? This tasty dish can be a snack or a meal in itself. And you get variety. Just have cheesy fries or add some chili. Cooked over the campfire will give you a better taste than any restaurant version. Spray some foil with cooking oil, add fries, fold up the foil packet and cook over the grill according to the packet directions. Then add your chili or cheese and re-grill until warm and melty.
5. Foil Chicken and Pineapple
For an easy and delicious meal that everyone will love, grill some pineapple and chicken. With a foil packet, you can grill strips of chicken and then add in some pineapple chunks for extra juice and flavor. It is like a little taste of the tropics in the wilderness.
6. Fire Toasted Banana Boats
When the kids want something sweet but you want them to have something healthy, fried toasted banana boats are a win-win for all. Cut a slit along the curve of the banana and slightly open the banana. Have the kids add their own chocolate chips, marshmallows, or fruit. Wrap the banana in foil and grill over the campfire for about 10 minutes.
7 Grilled Fruit Cones
A fun twist on s’mores is using an ice cream cone instead of graham crackers. Fill a cone (waffle cones are the best) with chocolate chips, marshmallows, and fruit. Wrap the cone in foil and grill over the campfire
8. Campfire Sandwiches
For an easy lunchtime meal, make some campfire sandwiches. All you need is bread, meat, and cheese. Make the sandwich as usual, but wrap it in foil and warm it over the campfire for about 5 minutes. The warm sandwich and melted cheese are a favorite for all and a quick midday meal to fuel you for the afternoon exploring.
9. Foil-Packed Mac and Cheese
It is always a good idea to have some food prepared and stored when RVing. Macaroni is one of those foods. This way you can grill up some mac and cheese quickly for the kids anytime. Make a pocket from foil, scoop in some cooked macaroni, cheese, and any other toppings like bacon or ham. Close the foil pocket, grill over the campfire for about 10 minutes, and enjoy.
Having some marinated meat prepped is also a good idea. You can make kabobs quick and easy at any time. Use whatever flavoring you want to marinate the meat of your choice, chop up some of your favorite veggies and get them all on a skewer. For a grilled taste, you can cook them over the open campfire flames, or wrap the kabobs in foil and grill for a more subtle taste.
For some extra special breakfasts, you can also get your campfire going in the mornings too. There are some yummy meals that are quick and easy to get you going for a day full of adventure.
You can prepare pancake batter anytime and keep it in the fridge. It will last for a few days. Then in the mornings you can quickly whip up some campfire pancakes, and grill them over the fire with a skillet. Add any toppings or syrup and enjoy.
12. French Toast on a Stick
You can make french toast with a foil packet over the fire, but why not try french toast on a stick. This is more appealing to kids and gives you some variety in your meals. All you need are some crescent rolls. Unwrap them from the packaging and then wrap them around some skewers. In a bowl, mix some sugar and cinnamon, and then roll the crescent rolls in the bowl, to get them covered in the mixture. Grill them over a campfire, like you would s’mores, rotating them for about 5 minutes. If you have any icing or melted chocolate for dipping, breakfast can be even sweeter.
13. Breakfast Camp Tacos
If you have some meat already prepared, this is a quick and easy breakfast option. On a sheet of foil, lay a tortilla and then meat, cheese, and any other veggies you want in your breakfast taco. Roll the foil up and cook over the campfire for about 5 minutes. Breakfast doesn’t get much easier than that.
