Campfire macaroni and cheese – a little bacon, a little jalapeno, a lot of cheese.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins


4 slices bacon, chopped

2 tablespoons minced onions or shallots

1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)

1 cup milk

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

2 cups cooked macaroni noodles

salt and pepper to taste


1Light the campfire. Place a grill grate on top of the campfire ring, over the fire. Place a cast iron skillet on the grate.

2Add the bacon to the skillet and cook until crispy. Add the onions and jalapeno and cook for about 1 minute, stirring often.

3Move the skillet to the edge of the grate to reduce the heat. (careful not to tip over the grate) Add the milk and cheese. Stir until melted. Add the noodles and cook until warmed through. Season with salt and pepper.


Before leaving for your camping trip, chop the bacon and vegetables, shred the cheese and pre-cook the noodles.

This can be made on a grill or stove top, too.

I love to cook outdoors. Give me a smoker, a grill or even a campfire, and I'll serve you up a meal you won't forget.
