Nutella Filled Baked Apples

Recipe by Food and Passion

Apples (any kind)

Wash the apples. Cut off the top of the apple and remove the core, but ensure not to puncture the apple all the way through.

Fill with nutella. Place the top back on the apple. Wrap tightly with tin foil.

Place in the glowing embers of the campfire, not in the flame. Allow the apple to bake for about 30-45 minutes (while you are cleaning up from dinner, relaxing by the fire, doing the dishes, playing cards). When you remove the apple from the fire, it should be fork tender and melting in your mouth. Enjoy!

Banana Boats

Recipe by Kqed.org


Bananas (As many as you need. Estimate 1 per person. Once they taste it, no one will want to share.)

Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, sweetened coconut (Or whatever other toppings you fancy.)


   1. Choose your bananas. I personally like mine ripened until perfectly spotted. I think they are sweeter this way.

   2. Slit the banana lengthwise.
   3. Stuff them with any combination of toppings you desire. I am a big fan of dark chocolate and butterscotch.
   4. Line your grill with foil, and place the nanas on top.
   5. Grill with the cover on until toppings get melty and delicious.
   6. Eat with a spoon.

Campfire French Toast

Recipe by This lil piglet

  • 1 loaf of bread of choice
  • 1 carton of Burnbrae Farms French Toast Egg Creations
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • 1 500g container of fresh strawberries
  • Confectioners sugar (Icing Sugar)
  • Syrup of choice
  1. Wash strawberries, dice half of the container and slice the other half.
  2. Wrap the loaf of bread in parchment paper, then in foil loosely so the bread slices fall slightly open.
  3. Sprinkle the diced strawberries over the loaf, taking care to sprinkle some between slices; set aside the sliced strawberries for afterwards.
  4. Sprinkle the sliced almonds in the same way as the diced strawberries over the loaf.
  5. Wrap the foil and parchment paper tighter around the loaf of bread. Pour 1 carton of Burnbrae Farms French Toast eggs evenly over the entire loaf of bread before wrapping tightly with a top piece of foil to ensure no leaks.
  6. Place over the campfire or grill on low to medium heat for approximately 35-40 minutes, moving around occasionally to cook evenly. If the bread looks soggy still, cook slightly longer.
  7. Remove from heat and let sit for 10 mins before serving with sugar, syrup and sliced strawberries.

S'mores Dip

  1. 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  2. 8 large marshmallows; cut in half

  3. Arrange the marshmallows on top of the chocolate.
  4. Bake in the oven for 6-8 minutes, until marshmallows are lightly browned.
  5. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve with graham crackers for dipping.
