Campfire Recipes


Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves two people.


  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2-4 potatoes, thinly sliced
  • A few pinches sea salt, pepper and herbs
  • 1-2 ears of corn, broken into 2" pieces
  • 3-4 strips of bacon, (optional)
  • 2-3 spoonfuls of hot salsa, (optional)
  • tin foil
  • 1 can baked beans
  • 2-4 tbsp. butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, prepare your campfire, or start your grill.
  2. Cut off a large piece of aluminum foil and lay it flat on the counter. Fold up the edges a bit to create four walls to hold your food in.
  3. Lay a layer of thinly sliced potato in the aluminum foil.
  4. On top of the layer of potatoes add about half as many onions as you did potatoes.
  5. Sprinkle salt, pepper and herbs over the potatoes and onions.
  6. Add another layer of thinly sliced potatoes, another layer of onions, and cut the butter in chunks to add on top of this layer.
  7. Put the pieces of broken up corn around the edges of the foil.
  8. Lay (mostly cooked) bacon over the top of the potatoes.
  9. Add more salt and pepper.
  10. Fold the aluminum foil up over the dinner, or add more if you need to, to cover it.
  11. Bake it in the oven, on the campfire or grill, for about half an hour. Make sure you check on it frequently. Mix it up about halfway through cooking.
  12. Heat beans up in leftover bacon grease.
  13. Serve with beer.
