3 Campfire Recipes To Make Right Now

October 18, 2022


Lauren Farver

As the leaves are starting to change from greens to reds, that can only mean one thing [aside from football season] – campfire season! Lauren here from the LIY Team! I can be found sipping wine around the campfire on any given Saturday night this time of year, and while we’re sipping we’re snacking too – ideally something made over the fire! I’m sharing 3 of our most frequently made campfire recipes today, perfect for whether your fire setup is happening in the backyard or at the campsite! For most of our campfire recipes, I use these individual aluminum foil round pans as they cook quickly and evenly, and are great for pre-camping trip prep! However, if you’re cooking for a larger group you could cook them i n one large pan, just know it will most likely take longer!

PS if you’re looking for more camping ideas, I shared our RV must-haves in this post!
