Labor Day Camping

This Labor Day weekend I will be heading up north for a weekend of camping and one of my favorite parts of camping is the food! I found this great camping recipe that is sure to please the crowd.

One of my favorite foods at home: Macaroni and Cheese!

An easy recipe that can be easily adjusted to your favorite cheeses.

Camping Macaroni and Cheese  (


2 cups macaroni (precooked and packed for trip)
½ cup milk
3 Tbsp. butter
1 cup Gruyère cheese, shredded
½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup Gooda cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp. flour
½ cup Panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

This camper uses a cast iron pot and a small charcoal grill but I will be adjusting this to be cooked over the fire. Heat up the pot and melt the butter along with the milk. Slowly whisk in a tablespoon of flour at a time to create the cheesy sauce. Once complete add in cheese mixture and pasta, top with extra cheese and bread crumbs, then let cook for 5 minutes and your mac and cheese is ready to go!
