Campfire – Mac N Cheese

Comments : 1 Posted in : Pre-prep, Waste Not Want Not, Wheat Free on by : Nicole

I’ve been on the hunt for yummy but easy meals at camp!

Last year i found a recipe for mac n cheese in mini tins that you toss in the fire at camp! 

I love that they are single serving and kind of customizeable! I found the mini tins on amazon and am tickled pink! I also make them for the hubby to eat at home! In honor of waste not want no i do put them in the dishwasher at home, so we can use them more than once!

Cook Time
10 min
  1. 1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni (wheat free works great - brown rice, chick pea flour etc)
  2. 8 oz prepared Alfredo sauce {just over half a jar}
  3. 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  4. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  5. 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  6. 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk
  7. Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Hot links
  2. Sausages
  3. Peas
  4. chopped Green beans
  5. Jalapenos
Add ingredients to shopping list
If you don’t have Buy Me a Pie! app installed you’ll see the list with ingredients right after downloading it
  1. If using sausages or hot links, cut into small pieces and cook up on the stove top
  2. Once almost cooked, drain on a papertowel
  3. If using vegetables - cook in the left over grease (just do it, it's yummy)
  4. I use wheat free pasta - brown rice, chickpea flour etc. Since it takes a very short amount of time to cook, i get everything ready, addins, cheeses measured etc. Then start the pasta.
  5. Cook pasta as directed
  6. Spray pie tins with cooking spray
  7. Stir alfredo sauce into the cooked pasta with the three cheeses and enough milk to keep things loosey goosey. Stir in salt and pepper to taste. Divide between 3 or 4 mini aluminum pie tins
  8. Spray one side of aluminum foil with more nonstick cooking spray and cover each individual mac and cheese portion, sprayed side down, facing the food.
  9. Seal well.
  10. Put in the freezer.
Heading camping
  1. I use my frozen mac n cheese as "ice" in the cooler for day 1
  2. Build your fire and when you have coals, place your mac n cheese in the coals. We like a little crispy, if you just want it warm, put in on the grate over the fire
  1. You can also cook these in the oven.
  2. From frozen - 350 for 20 min, remove foil, cook 10-20 min more until bubbly and cooked through.
  3. This recipe is very versatile! Add in what you like with your mac n cheese or just keep it plain!
  4. Hubby doesn't like tomatoes, but i think diced tomatoes drained, could amazing mixed in during the cheese phase!
