[MORE] Camping Recipes… on a stick!

Because you just can’t get enough cooking on a stick… here are a couple more stick recipes that mouth-wateringly delicious!

Zucchini Wrapped Salmon


  • 1 salmon fillet cut up into chunks
  • zucchini sliced semi-thin
  • olive oil
  • coarse salt and fresh-cracked pepper (to taste)

Simply cut the zucchini thin enough to wrap around the salmon, but not so thin it will fall apart over the fire.  Pre-cook the zucchini just enough that it’s easy to wrap around the salmon without breaking.  Then wrap it up, and cook it until delicious!

Fun Campfire Lunch Recipes

Last time we talked about some Creative Campfire Breakfast Recipes, so this time I wanted to keep the meal day going with some fun lunch recipes that you can cook with your family and friends around a mid-day campfire at the lake.

Campfire Crescent Dogs



This simple twist on a campfire hot dog makes for an easy and fun lunch.


  • 1 tube Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Ketchup and mustard, as desired
  • 8 hot dogs

Wrap your hot dog in a triangle of the crescent roll dough.  Hold it over the fire, and steadily turn it so that it cooks evenly.  It should turn a nice, golden brown pretty quickly, so you want to keep it off of direct flame so your hot dog inside will get warmed up.

When they’re done, let them cool down a bit before you take them off the stick.  Garnish with ketchup, mustard, or any other topping you want and enjoy!

Onion Bombs



All the down-home goodness of meatloaf wrapped in a delicious onion serving bowl.

Everything you will need:

  • Onions
  • Your favorite meatloaf recipe ingredients
  • Tinfoil
  • A hot fire


Mix up your meatloaf like you normally would.  Put it inside some hollowed out onions.  Wrap them up in tinfoil.

To cook them up just toss them down into the fire! These normally take about 10-20 minutes to cook. Just keep turning them over in the fire every 10 minutes or so until the meatloaf is cooked through.

Once cooked, remove and enjoy!

Creative Campfire Breakfast Recipes

Campfires are that essential part of being outdoors that helps bring everyone together… and what could be better than starting the day off in that warm glow with your family and friends!

Here are a couple simple ideas to help make your camping breakfast more interesting and fun!

Breakfast Woof’em



These biscuits are a great no-mess treat that are fun to make and stuff with your breakfast of choice.


Hold it over the fire, and steadily turn it so that it cooks evenly.  It should turn a nice, golden brown pretty quickly if your fire is good and hot, so keep an eye on it!

When they’re done, let them cool down a bit before you take them off the stick.  Once they’re cool, just fill them with your breakfast filling of choice and enjoy!

Campfire Muffins

campfire muffins


These no-mess muffins are a great way to make breakfast and have your orange juice to go with it!

Everything you will need:

  • Several oranges (one orange makes 2 muffins)
  • Muffin mix (any flavor will work)
  • Campfire or Grill
  • Aluminum Foil

Next, mix up your muffin mix as you normally would.

Now scoop the mix into the orange halves to the top and wrap into a ball shape with 3 layers of foil.

To cook them up just toss them down into the fire! These normally take about 10 minutes to cook. Just keep turning them over in the fire every minute or so and check them until they get firm in the middle.

You may need a spoon to get all of them from the peel.

Once cooked, remove and enjoy!
