Anyone have some of those fun campfire recipes you used to do as a child?

The last time we went camping the lady camping next to us made doughnuts by taking a can of biscuits, punching a hole in the middle and deep frying them. She then dipped them in cinnamon sugar. They were fabulous!

If you have the camping sandwich presses you can make all kinds of goodies. for us we like to spray two pieces of bread with buttery Pam and then layer mini marshmellow, hershey bar pieces and banana slices put the sides back together and roast them over the fire. you can take the canned pie fillings and put in there for turnovers, grilled cheese sandwiches, hot ham/turkey and cheese sandwiches all kinds of yummy treats!

My family were big campers and we used to do a whole dinner in a new metal garbage can... you just layer the food... potatoes then corn peppers, meat seafood etc...

Theres also spiders... just cut two slits opposite ways at both ends of a hot dog but not allthe way to the centre and as they cook the ends curl up and look like a spider

My husband talks about putting bread dough on a stick and 'bakeing' it over the campfire at Boy Scout Camp. My mom makes pineapple cakes in the campfire.

Take a plain fried doughnut, slice lenghwise, and put a ring of pineapple in the middle with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Wrap in tin foil and put over slow coals.

My fav is from a 4-H camp. Take a bannana and peel one strip down onthe inside curve (make a boat)l eave peel attached at bottom. Take a spoon and scrape out a groove in the exposed bannana. Put in a row of choclate chips and mini marshmallows, replace bannana strip and cover with peel. wrap with tin foil and put over slow coals. Eat with a spoon. *I know it is really weird sounding, but every one we have ever gotten to try it has loved it*

One more. My best friends family always toasted thinly sliced pepperoni over the fire, it gets all crispy and yummy.

A fun twist on S'mores is using peanutbutter cups instead of just chocolate squares; can also do on the grill at home!!!!!
