Fun Campfire Food
As I travel Route 5 in Vermont, I keep seeing campers rolling off the highway and tents and kayaks are strapped to roof racks. Camping, the great American obsession is hitting its summer stride! There is nothing like getting away from home and relaxing around the campfire. There is something so mesmerizing about those flames and all the good times to be had gathering with friends and family.
Our Happy Camper box is the perfect collection of spice packets to give to a friend who loves camping, or to gift to yourself for your next camping adventure!
We have put together some simple recipes to take your campfire meals to the next level. We love foil packets for summertime grilling. Add a few spices and ingredients to your food, wrap it in a little tented foil, and less than 30 minutes later all of the flavors magically meld together to create a tasty dinner.
CAMPFIRE SAVORY ONION POTATOES
2 lbs red potatoes, cubed
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Halladay’s Harvest Barn Farmhouse Onion Burger Seasoning
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
Toss potatoes with oil, seasoning, salt, and pepper; place in a foil packet and seal tightly. Place over hot coals (not open flames) and cook, turning every 5 minutes, for about 15 to 25 minutes; until done. Carefully open foil packet and dig in!
BBQ CHICKEN GRILL PACKETS
1 lb boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cubed
1 red onion, roughly chopped
1 Package Halladay’s Harvest Barn Barbeque Rub for Chicken & Ribs
Shredded cheese, optional
Evenly coat chicken with BBQ Seasoning, cover and let sit in your cooler to marinate. Prepare four tin foil packets. Combine the chicken with peppers and onions and add ¼ of the mixture to each piece of tinfoil. Add 2 to 3 pieces of corn, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Seal up foil packets and cook over medium heat coals for 15 to 25 minutes. Open carefully, sprinkle with shredded cheese if desired, and enjoy!
HERB BUTTERED CORN ON THE COB
