Just because you’re camping out, doesn’t mean you have to go without bacon. Skewer up America’s favorite breakfast meat to make campfire bacon.

This is a recipe (or really more of a technique) that I discovered while camping.

I vowed to make recipes using only foil and skewers, and no way was I going to give up bacon in the process. If you can put a marshmallow on a stick, by God, you can put bacon on a stick.

The secret to getting your bacon evenly crispy is to weave each strip onto a skewer, leaving a gap between weaves. Then, continue weaving more strips on the skewer, leaving a few inches empty at the end.

Prepare a campfire and set two logs or rocks on each side of the flames so you can rest the skewers on the logs/stones over the flames.

Rotate the skewers every 5 or so minutes to ensure even cooking and browning. You might get a few flare-ups…that’s just a bacon grease fireworks celebration. If it gets too out-of-hand, have a squirt bottle with water near by to put out some hot spots.

Your bacon should be crispy, ready and extra smoky in about 30 minutes.

What a happy campfire breakfast!
