CampFire Cooking Recipes : Daddy’s Potatoes

Feed Them Dinner With Campfire Cooking

Campfire Cooking is the perfect way to prepare a meal when camping, traveling in an RV or even a staycation at home. Campfire cooking keeps the mess to a minimum and infuses the food with flavor. My husband came up with this recipe on his own while on a guy’s camping trip and they all came home talking about it. I made him make it for us the next time we were camping and now my kids ask him to make them at home all the time. They have named them¬†Daddy’s Potatoes.
