Easy Campfire Dinners

Easy Campfire Dinners

You’ve been hiking or swimming at the lake all day and need something quick and easy to eat? These campfire dinner recipes are my favorite for a great hearty meal after a day of activities. 

Steak Kabob Dinner

Meat on a stick, it doesn’t get more primal. Connect with your inner carnivore or make this a healthy vegetarian dish with veggies. If you use wooden kabob sticks just be sure to soak them before putting them on your campfire or over the coals. Marinate them ahead of time for zero prep. Get the recipe here.

Grilled Cheesy Fries

Chicken Caesar Wraps

Chicken Caesar salad has to be one of the best things created. Putting great things into a tortilla usually works, that’s why this recipe is great! Especially since you can make them ahead of time, just be sure to keep them in a cooler. This one doesn’t require any cooking, just a little prep so you can eat it immediately! I know I am not the only one who is impatient when it comes to eating. Recipe here.

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad
