Creating A Campfire For More Than Marshmallows

Cottage Campfire Recipes - The Sign Depot

Now that the warm weather is here, many become weekend warriors and head for their cottage or cabin.  There are only so many roasted marshmallows that one can eat over the summer, so here is our list of the best campfire recipes for you to try this cottage season.

Best Campfire Recipes

Stock up on tinfoil and long bbq tongs, heavy duty metal skewers and oven mitts . It’s time to take campfire cooking to the next level!

Campfire Corn On The Cob

Leave the husks on your ears of corn and soak them in a bucket or cooler of water for an hour. Next with either use your long bbq tongs or heavy duty metal skewers (depending on grip or weight) to roast the corn over the open flame until the husk becomes a very dark brown.  Set roasted corn aside to let the steam to do the work and finish the cooking.  After that put on your oven mitts and remove the husks from the corn and serve.

Spider Hot Dogs

This brings a bit of fun to the typical weiner roast. Start by scoring cross or x pattern into the ends of the hot dog with a knife. You are begining to start the legs of the spider. Now slice into your scoring a bit but not too far into the weiner. You don’t want the legs to char and fall off.  Then insert your metal skewer into the hot dog and roast over the campfire.  As it cooks you will see 4 legs form on each end of the hot dog, because as the weiner roasts the ends begin to curl up.

Tacos In A Bag

Being that your are at the cottage/cabin chances are you plan on grilling some hamburgers.  Put a few extra on the grill and save the leftovers for this campfire recipe.

Start with a small bag of nacho chips (Doritos work best as their bags are foil lined and chips are flavoured already). Squish the bag a bit to crunch up the chips into smaller bite size pieces.  Next chop up your cooked burgers and taco toppings (lettuce, peppers, cheese etc). Open the top of the nacho chip bag, add the toppings, roll up the top and give it a good shake. Then use the bbq tongs to hold the bags over the fire so that the cheese melts.  Next set aside until the nacho chip bags are cool enough to hold. Slowly and carefully open the bags to let out the steam.  Then once the bag and toppings are cool to the touch, eat the concoction right out of the bag, splitting it down the side as you get deeper into the filling (or eat with forks).

Campfire Cones

Think of it as all the fun of s’mores in an easier to manage ice cream cone.  Begin with a sugar cone and fill with your sweet toppings, marshmallows, chocolate chips, caramel sauce, berries or any dessert toppings you like.  Wrap the cone in foil.  Use the bbq tongs to hold the package cone over the campfire to cook the ingredients.  After that, let it cool and unwrap this portable dessert.
