aluminum foil

1.. Place the frozen french fries in the middle of a sheet of aluminum foil.

Tip: shredding the cheese before you head out on your camping adventure will save you time.

What is your favourite camping recipe?



  1. I think one takeaway from this camping series is: chop/prep before. We do that at the campsite and not that we mind, like you say, if you do it beforehand, you can enjoy the scenery and nature instead of chopping and cooking for hours on end.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Oh yum! We have a few camping trips in the works and these look like a great treat to have!


I would love to hear from you!
