Campfire Meals

By: Amberly Asay

Camping season is among us, and it is time to get outdoors.  Being in nature is one of the best feelings in the world, and it is great to eat some great meals cooked by a campfire.  We have gathered some non-traditional campfire treats to try the next time you go camping.

Campfire Cake in an Orange
Cut the tops off of an orange, and scoop out the fruit (this is delicious to eat so don't just throw it away).  Fill each orange just a little bit past halfway with cake mix.  Put the tops back on the orange and wrap it in foil.  Set the oranges in the campfire coals for 20 minutes.  The cake bakes right in the oranges is very moist with some delicious light orange flavoring.

Cinnamon Roll in an Orange
Start with a tube of ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls from any supermarket.  Take an orange, cut it in half, and scoop out (and eat) all the fruit.  Place a cinnamon roll from the tube into the orange rind. Wrap it in foil.  Place it on a campfire for 10-20 minutes, and then enjoy your delicious cinnamon roll.

Smore Croissants
Start with a tube of ready-to-bake croissants.  Put a few chocolate chips and a few marshmallows in your croissant and roll it up.  You can bake these in your oven (on a baking sheet) or put them in foil and cook on the coals.  Then enjoy your delicious croissant!
