Keep reading for some outdoor recipes to treat the dads in your life this Father’s Day with a little food-filled outdoor trip!

  • Campfire Breakfast with Potato Ham, and Eggs 

Ingredients: 2 eggs, chopped onion, 2 Maris Piper or Russet Potatoes, diced sweet peppers, cube-shaped cooked ham, olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. 


  • Grab some wood and make a fire. Set up a cooking surface over it.
  • Place a charcoal grill grate on the cooking surface. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over the fire to sauté the onions.
  • Once the onions have changed their colour, add the potatoes and cook them for 8 – 10 mins or until they turn soft.
  • Add ham and peppers, and cook them for 6 -7 minutes. 
  • Now crack the eggs in the cast iron skillet over everything and cook until the whites have set. This would generally take about 5 minutes. Serve hot.
  • Campfire Lunch with some Pizzas!

Ingredients: 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, rapid-rise yeast, Warm water, olive oil, salt to taste, and toppings of your choice.


  • Start by preparing the dough with some warm water, olive oil and rapid-rise yeast in a mixing bowl. Knead the dough well to ensure all the ingredients are well incorporated. Cover the dough for 20 to 25 minutes with a wet cloth.
  • In the meantime, start a campfire and create a cooking surface. Coat the cast iron skillet with some olive oil and place it over the fire for pre-heating. The coat of oil will help form the pizza crust.
  • Once the dough has risen, place the dough in the pre-heat cast iron skillet. Push the dough down and towards the side. Drizzle some olive oil on the sides of the skillet as well. This will help prevent the dough from sticking to the cookware. 
  • Place the cast iron skillet over the fire and let the pizza dough cook until the bottom has firmed up and turned golden brown in colour. You will have to lift the pizza dough to check the firmness.
  • Pull the skillet off the fire and flip the pizza dough with a pair of tongs. Be careful with this step since the cookware will be hot from all the cooking.
  • Coat the pizza with sauce and toppings of your choice and cover the cast iron skillet with a lid or foil paper. Cook the pizza for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cast iron skillet from the campfire carefully and transfer the pizza to a plate for a scrumptious meal.
  • Campfire S’mores for Dessert!

If you are not confident with cooking big meal on a campfire, you can always opt to cook some s’mores with marshmallows on a skewer. Place the s’mores between two graham crackers for some crunchy fun.

Incorporate the warm summer air and fresh sunlight in this year’s Father’s Day celebration with a weekend camping trip or an afternoon picnic. Campfires are fun only when you observe safety rules. Being equipped with fireproof mitts to protect your hands is not the only safety measures that need to be taken. Know the rules of the forest or the campground before striking the match to lit the fire. Protect the environment and protect yourself. 

Spending quality time with some delicious food is a sure way to bond with your father. Make this Father’s Day a memorable one with delicious food and cherished moments.
