There is nothing more fun to do in the summer than having a campfire! Our whole family loves campfires, so during the summer we usually have at least one every weekend when we’re home! We have even more when we’re spending the weekend camping or at the lake. I thought I’d put together a fun Foodie collection of great family campfire recipe ideas to share with you. If you want to check out the complete recipe, you can check out my Campfire Recipe Ideas Collection at Foodie, or by clicking on the image in the slider here:

There is nothing better than food cooked over an open campfire! It’s definitely worth the fuss, even though most campfire recipes don’t take any more preparation or fuss than regular cooking!

15 Great campfire recipe ideas

This collection includes a wide variety, from breakfast to a late night snack! Some of our favorites include:

  • Campfire pie recipes~ We love making these every weekend! They’re so fun for the kids to make, and so easy! Just add your favorite filling and grill over the open flames in a pie iron.
  • Campfire corn on the cob~ This is one of our favorite ways to have corn on the cob! We soak ours in water, then add spices and grill right in the husk!
  • Pizza on the campfire~ We’ve done pizza on the grill quite a few times, but we’ve never done pizza on the grill, definitely going to have to give this a try!
  • Canned Biscuit Campfire Doughnuts~ OK, so we’ve never tried this one either, but we’ll definitely be giving it a try in the next few weeks! Sounds yummy!
  • Brownies and cinnamon rolls in an orange~ Such a genius idea! You can cook these on the open campfire, and there are no dishes to do afterward! Love it! Who knew?
  • Campfire macaroni and cheese~ My son’s always all in for this one! He loves mac and cheese however he can get it!
  • Breakfast over the campfire? ~ There’s sausage and potatoes, red potato hash, and breakfast potatoes, just add eggs and you’re good to go for a day of camping!

What’s your favorite campfire recipe? We’d love to hear it!

Those are some neat ideas. We usually just do s’mores, but maybe it’s time to branch out 😉

What cleaver ideas. These would be perfect in the backyard too. Thanks so much for being so creative :).

Those mixed up s’mores look awesome. I don’t really camp, but I would make these recipes at my next family bonfire!

We recently kicked off the summer with our first camping trip of the season. One of the couples we camped with had a pie iron and I instantly fell in love.

We awed them with fajitas over the campfire in the disco that my husband built. Perks of living on a farm we have tons of extra discs around.

The Canned Biscuit Campfire Doughnuts sounds super YUMMY! I love all these recipes you pulled together.

Stefani Tolson June 1, 2014 - 10:12 pm

Some great ideas here. I would love to make some of these when we go camping.

These all look great! We love to do foil dinners, smokes, and doughnuts in the campfire! Also, sounds silly but roasted Starbursts are AMAZING!

I really want to build a campfire and roast smores after reading this post. I may have to make this happen this week.
