The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by spending time with loved ones at the campground? If you plan on having a festive camping trip this Christmas, here are some top Christmas recipes that are perfect for the holidays at the campground.
Campfire Roasted Turkey
Who says you can’t have a traditional Christmas turkey while camping? With some creativity and help from the campfire, you can enjoy a delicious roasted turkey. Prepare your turkey in advance, season it with your favorite herbs and spices, then wrap it tightly in aluminum foil. Place it on a grill over the campfire and cook slowly for a few hours. The result will be a tender and flavorful turkey that will impress everyone at the campground.
Campfire Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are a staple of Christmas meals and can easily be prepared at the campground. Start by wrapping the sweet potatoes in aluminum foil and placing them in the campfire. Let them cook for about an hour or until they are soft and caramelized. Once they’re done, you can enjoy them as is or top them with marshmallows for an extra festive touch.
No camping trip is complete without s’mores, and they make a perfect dessert for a Christmas gathering at the campground. Gather your graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars, and toast the marshmallows over the campfire. Sandwich the melted marshmallows and chocolate between two graham crackers, and enjoy the gooey goodness of a classic s’more.
Campfire Mulled Wine
Warm up on a chilly night at the campground with a cup of campfire mulled wine. Combine red wine, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and a touch of honey in a pot. Let it simmer over the campfire for about 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Serve it warm in mugs, and savor the cozy and festive flavors of mulled wine.
Campfire Christmas Cookies
Baking cookies is a beloved Christmas tradition; you can continue that tradition at the campground. Prepare your favorite cookie dough in advance and pack it in an airtight container. When you’re ready to bake, shape the dough into small balls and place them on a greased cast-iron skillet. Cook them over the campfire, flipping them occasionally until golden brown and cooked through. Enjoy warm and freshly baked Christmas cookies at the campground.
