Campfire Cooking

At our Sussex glamping and camping sites we encourage campfires. Of course, one of the great joys of campfires is campfire cooking and eating alfresco.

Burgers and sausages are probably the most obvious choice for a campfire meal. But there is so much more you could try. Grilling or barbecuing meat, fish or veg directly over the flames provides a great meal but there are plenty of other ways to cook on your campfire. Some of the simplest recipes are the best whether they are one-pot meals or foil-wrapped packages. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Jacket potatoes cooking on the campfire – one of the easiest campfire dinners.

Our Top 10 dutch oven recipes will surely inspire a bit of the campsite chef in you. Don’t worry if you don’t have a dutch oven, we hire them out at both Wild Boar Wood and Beech Estate Campsites.

Or for some of the more classic options like jacket potatoes, pasta or bananas and chocolate take a look at our Easy Campfire Recipes. Not sure what to cook for breakfast on your camping trip? Here’s our Campfire Breakfast Recipes. Try these cosy hot drinks on the campfire.

We’ve even sourced some more camping cooking inspired from a host of other sites and posted it all on our Camping Recipe Ideas page.
