Russian Campfire Roast Potato Recipe

I got this recipe from my husband. He told me about it and I've been so curious ever since, especially since he said it made the best potatoes he's ever had. It's so delicious and simplistic you don't even need butter, salt, pepper, or anything else to make it taste good! (I really didn't use anything to flavor it and just ate it the way it was. I've never had such a flavorful potato before.) It's also super easy.

Step One: Take Potato
Step Two: Throw Potato Into Fire
Step Three: Eat Potato

Seriously though- you take the potato and place it in the coals. Cover it with more coals. If it's a large potato check it after 30 minutes- but it's likely to take 40-60 minutes. Small potatoes like the ones I brought you can check at 20 minutes, but it can take 30-40 minutes. You push the coals and ashes off the potatoes and take a bite out. The skin is so crispy, the innards are so fluffy and flavorful. It's the best way to enjoy a potato!
After the first bite I realized I wouldn't need that butter after all!

Campfire Roasted Caramel Apple Recipe

So the Campfire Roasted Apples were eaten (happily and deliciously!) and we were sad that there were no more, but were glad that we still had some green apples and caramel! I decided to try something completely new so I invented Campfire Roasted Caramel Apples and let me tell you it's foil-licking good. (We licked the tinfoil afterwards it was so incredible.) Oh dear gosh, I think I've found my new favorite dessert. It is gooey, tart, sweet, and has a hint of spice- amazing! Yum! Marshmallow The New My Personal Pony helped out! So you know it's pony approved!

Ingredients You'll Need:

Green Apple
Liquid Caramel (I just got the caramel dip for apples at the store)
Tin Foil


Cut apple in half. Cut out the core.
Pour liquid caramel into the place where the core used to be.

Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Close back up to make the two halves whole. Cover with tin foil.
Throw into the coals.
Let cook 20-30 minutes, until the apple is softened on the outside. Eat and enjoy! Don't forget to lick the caramel off- yuuuuuuummmm!

Tin Foil Dinner Campfire Recipe

Mmmm- steamy and delicious!

Like I mentioned in the Campfire Kabob recipe- I marinated the steak in vinegar to help keep the meat safe, like my husband's grandfather used to do when camping in Russia. Tinfoil dinners on the campfire are always delicious and satisfying.

Ingredients You'll Need:

Green Onions
Cloves of Garlic
Pot Roast Seasonings (or your own)


Cube meat. Toss in an old plastic container. Add pot roast seasonings (normally I'd make my own seasonings, but like I said, I was still recovering from an illness and had a lot to prepare for camping outside the country!) Put lid on container and shake vigorously so the spices stick to to the meat (cold, vinegar, and spices help fight off bacteria that like meat.) 
Place cloves of garlic and cut green onions into container. 
You can add other ingredients you'd like in the tin foil dinner, but I think it's better to leave them out. Pour vinegar over meat. (I reused the vinegar that I washed my fruit with to Keep Berries Fresh (yay reusing things! :))) 
Dinner for two!
Place container in freezer so it'll keep cold longer and act as a huge ice cube for everything else too! When ready to make the meal drain the vinegar. Place meat, garlic, and onions in tin foil. Add potatoes, carrots, and peas (and bacon!) 

Wrap up and throw it in the fire! 

Leave it in the coals for 30 minutes then, if not finished, check every 5 or 10 minutes. Enjoy the meaty, hearty deliciousness!
