Having a fire pit is a huge blessing the fall. It can be the focal point of the backyard and bring people from all over the neighbourhood together. Besides telling spooky stories, one of the best parts of fire pits is being able to roast up delicious treats. Knowing the best recipes can give you the upper hand at your next bonfire meet up.
Hotdogs are a go to campfire food. They cook quickly and if you have enough sticks, you can cook a lot of them at once. The are also cheap, so it’s not a big deal if one or two of them end up in the fire.
Nothing says fire like marshmallows. Just like hotdogs, throw a few on the end of a stick and within seconds you have a warm, sticky snack. If you have time to plan ahead, bring some chocolate and gram crackers so that you can make smores.
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
This one is a little more unorthodox, but it’s a good one. If you have a grill over your fire pit, you can throw a few grilled cheese sandwiches in a pan and let them cook. The end product is a crunchy gooey snack fit for the king or queen of the fire.
Sliced fruit is a healthy snack over the fire. Slice up anything from pears to pineapples and cook them in a pan over the fire. Feel free to sprinkle brown sugar or cinnamon over the sliced fruit for a bit of extra sweetness.
Corn on the Cob
Corn on the cob is a classic for fall fires. Simply soak the whole cob (with the husk) in water for a few hours then throw them into the fire. The flames and embers will slowly cook the corn, giving it a smoky flavour and if you’re lucky, some grill marks.
