favorite easy camping meal

We love roasting hot dogs when we go camping, and we usually bring traditional buns. But as I was searching for camping meal ideas before our trip, I came across this: Curly Dogs. They couldn't be easier. 

  • Grab a hunk of your favorite roll/bread dough (I used thawed Rhodes rolls for simplicity)
  • Roll it into a snake
  • Secure one end to your favorite hot dog with a toothpick
  • Wrap around in a spiral
  • Secure other end with another toothpick
  • Insert your favorite roasting stick
  • Cook over a campfire

You can also bake them in the oven, if you don't have access to a campfire. 

The kids thought they were really fun and helped every step of the way. They gobbled them up, even though I forgot the ketchup. They're not fans of refrigerated pre-made dough, but they liked the Rhodes. Someday I'll make these at home with homemade dough.

 What's your favorite camping meal?
