The Best Campfire Foods for Your RV Trips
So, you’ve upgraded your good old tent for a more spacious and comfortable motorhome. But just because you’ve upgraded your accommodation and have cooking facilities inside your RV, doesn’t mean you can’t still gather around a campfire, cooking up treats and telling stories.
If you’re deciding what kind of food to pack for your next RV trip, here are some of the best campfire foods for you to make.
No camping trip is complete without roasting s’mores over an open fire. All you need to bring is chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers. And don’t forget the skewers for roasting them on. With your marshmallow on the skewer, hold it over the flame until it is nice and toasted. It should go brown on the outside and nice and soft on the inside. Then sandwich the marshmallow between two graham crackers and a couple of pieces of chocolate.
Another tasty snack that’s easy to cook over a campfire is popcorn. And popcorn kernels keep for a long time, so you can bring them along even for long trips. Pack a roll of foil and something to hold the kernels in. If you’ve packed pans for your kitchen anyway, then these are suitable. Or for a more compact option you can use a foil pie tin. Don’t forget vegetable oil and any toppings or flavorings you want, such as salt, butter, cheese, or sweet toppings. Cover the pan with foil and hold it over the flames until the kernels pop, shaking occasionally, and then season as you like.
Hot dogs are another easy food to cook over an open fire if you have a fridge in your RV to keep them cool and fresh until you cook them. Pack the buns and any sauces and toppings you want to complete your hot dogs. Just skewer the hot dogs and hold them over the flames, but not in them, turning the meat regularly to cook through properly. It should only take around 5 minutes to get them brown on the outside and ready to eat.
As we’ve seen from the recipes above, wood or metal skewers open up lots of possibilities for campfire cooking. You can skewer various types of meat and vegetables and roast them over your campfire, providing a variety of kebab skewer recipes. For more flavor, you can add seasoning or marinade to them before roasting.
Don’t limit yourself to your RV kitchen. Get out into the great wide open and cook up lots of tasty treats on your campfire. Here are lots more ideas for delicious camping foods you could cook on your RV trips.← back to news
