Gourmet Campfire Cooking Is Possible—5 Recipes to Try

Once your coals are entirely covered with ash, throw your corn and legumes onto the fire pit. Make sure to turn your produce often and roast until husks are completely charred, about 15 to 20 minutes. No husking needed! The corn will slip right out of its husk once cooked. Enjoy with butter and a coriander spice rub. Click here for the recipe.
All you need in terms of equipment is a grill and a camp stove, and this hearty, Instagram-worthy breakfast can be yours. Prep the tomatillo-and-jalapeño salsa over your fire pit and fry your eggs on the propane stove. Click here for the full recipe.
Who said you had to skip the greens while out in the wilderness? Make your rice at home and bring it along pre-cooked. Then all you have left to do is toss a salad and rice with dressing and add shaved radishes. Click here for the recipe.
Start marinating your steak before you even hit the road. The longer your meat marinates, the tastier it will be. We recommend a full two days! And bring along some extra vino to enjoy fireside while roasting your handmade flatbreads. Click here for the recipe.
You’ll need a seven-quart Dutch oven for the delicious treat. Premix your dry ingredients before you leave home and transport to your campsite in a plastic bag. Combine liquid and dry ingredients in the Dutch oven and roast your peaches and blackberries in a tinfoil basket. Serve in the pan for a rustic yet romantic dessert. Click here for the recipe.
