Campfire Mac & Cheese

While most of the prep for this one happens pre-camping, the pure bliss of eating creamy, cheesy, fireside mac & cheese is well worth the minor pre-trip headache. Plus, it opens up more time to spend on the lake or trail instead of prepping and cooking meals.


  • 1.5 cups elbow macaroni
  • 8 oz. Alfredo sauce
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup half & half or whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Mini aluminum pie tins


  1. Cook macaroni according to package.
  2. Drain pasta. Add cheeses, milk, and Alfredo sauce, stirring until cheese is melted
  3. Spray each pie tin with non-stick oil.
  4. Divide the mac & cheese between the pie tins and cover with aluminum. Keep chilled until ready to cook.
  5. Place on a rack 2-3 inches above the coals and cook for 8-10 minutes.
