Are you looking for some good campfire recipes? It’s summer, and since it’s time for camping and memorable evenings with family or friends, you need some easy and delicious recipes for everyone! While stopping by the grocery store before your evening, pick up some ROMA Italian sausages and deli meats, which are perfect for grilling over a wood fire. In addition, stock up on the items you need to cook them (vegetables, sauces, spices, bread, etc.) and outfit yourself with a grill, a frying pan, and some metal spits. Here are 3 campfire recipes that will whet your appetite.
Finocchio Sausage hot dogs with sauerkraut and mustard
As easy as 1-2-3, this campfire recipe is nevertheless a delicacy that will remind you of Alsace.
- One package of Aliments Roma Finocchio (fennel) sausages
- One large jar of sauerkraut
- Olive oil
On a grill or on metal rods, cook (for 7 or 8 minutes) the sausages that you have basted beforehand with olive oil and peppered to taste. Toast the buttered bread, then insert the sausages and top with mustard and sauerkraut. Enjoy with a mug of ice-cold beer!
Stuffed potatoes with sour cream
Potatoes are delicious cooked in aluminum foil over a wood fire. And so easy to prepare! This campfire recipe goes further than traditional buttered potatoes: the potatoes are stuffed with pieces of spicy capicolli (pork) that has been fermented for 120 days.
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- 1 Aliments Roma COPPA capicolli sausage
- Sour cream
- Salt and pepper
- 60 mL (1/4 cup) butter
- 375 mL (1 1/2 cups) shredded white cheddar cheese
Wrap each potato in aluminum foil. Cook on the grill for 30 minutes. Then, cut the sausage slices and chives into very small pieces. Soften the butter and cheese in a frying pan and add the sausage pieces. Remove from heat. Place the potatoes horizontally and cut off the tops. Remove the flesh, leaving a 1-cm edge. Mix the flesh of the hollowed-out potatoes with the sausage pieces in the frying pan. Add salt and pepper. Stuff the potatoes and put them back on the grill for a few minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream!
Grilled cheese with pepperoni and spinach
A nice grilled cheese cooked over the fire will please all the hungry people out there, especially if it’s unconventional!
- One package of Aliments Roma Caserta pepperoni sausages
- One loaf of sliced multigrain bread (thick slices)
- Cheese of your choice (cheddar, double-cream brie, blue, or other)
- Black olives
Choose your favourite cheese and lay it over a slice of bread buttered on both sides, then add thin slices of pepperoni (for a spicier touch). Pepper lightly and add spinach leaves and sliced black olives. Cover with another slice of buttered bread and cook everything in a frying pan until the cheese is melted. Treat yourself by pairing your grilled cheese with a glass of full-bodied red wine.
