Campfire Cooking: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread and Baked Avocados

Campfire Cooking: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread and Baked Avocados

It’s May long weekend here in Canada and I am sitting in my tent trailer camping as I write this. Not my usual camping, I have to admit. I am in a site that has power, water and sewer. None of these services I need. We bring our own power and water and the forest provides us with a latrine or we build a latrine. But it’s May long and we went out without a reservation, so the only site we found is basically “glamping”. So I figured I might as well bust out the computer and write about campfire cooking.

It just so happens that I have a camping post I have been waiting to write so I could share with you the great cookbook I had the opportunity to review: The Flaming Marshmallow’s Guide to Campfire Cooking, by Nikki Fotheringham. I was given this cookbook to review and try out some of the recipes! The recipes are simple enough for any outdoor enthusiast and they can be made over a campfire or your barbecue grill. The book not only has over 50 recipes, it also has some tips on packing, cooling and storing food; building a campfire; and tips to start your day while you are out in the wilderness. The camping recipes include breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks and desserts. And to finish it off you can find scary ghost stories at the end of the book.

In today’s camping post I am going to share with you two campfire cooking recipes that I tried from The Flaming Marshmallow’s Guide to Campfire Cooking. Both simple and both delicious! I have to provide full disclosure here though. In Alberta we are on a complete fire ban, so neither of these recipes were made over a campfire, but instead the barbecue grill. They will work just as well over your campfire and once this fire ban is lifted, I will be using this book a lot more all season!

Campfire Cooking

Pull-Apart Pizza Bread

I used a large bun for this recipe, instead of a sour dough loaf since I was only cooking for two. Since this is a pizza bread, you can use any of your favourite pizza toppings; I used pepperoni, salami, ham, mushrooms, green peppers and lots of mozzarella cheese. 

campfire cooking

Slice the bread horizontal and vertically to make a checkerboard pattern, without cutting all the way through. 

Stuff your pizza toppings in between the bread squares and then stuff shredded cheese in between. 

campfire cooking

Wrap in foil and put in a low fire (just coals would be perfect), or on the barbecue grill for 15 minutes.

Pull the squares apart and enjoy!

Baked Avocados

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scrape some of the avocado out and into a bowl, leaving an “avocado bowl”. Add chopped tomatoes, feta cheese, salt, pepper and Aleppo chilies and mix with scooped avocado.

campfire cooking

Fill avocado bowls with mixture and wrap in foil – tent the foil over the top so the cheese doesn’t melt.

campfire cooking

Place over hot coals or on a preheated barbecue for 15 – 20 minutes. Enjoy!
