You can cook anything over a campfire if you have cast iron. They can withstand the direct flame and intense heat that campfires are known for. Although I do love to cook, I tend to plan for more simple recipes while camping. I want to fill my days with hiking and swimming, kayaking and fishing and by the end of the day I want dinner to be simple and delicious. There is absolutely nothing like fresh baked biscuits when you are camping and even though this is a cheat because I start with Immaculate Baking buttermilk biscuits which we sell in the salsa cooler, they are quick and delicious, and if it weren’t for the already made biscuit dough, I would NEVER bake biscuits in the woods, so it’s a WIN-WIN!
Take a deep cast iron pan or Dutch oven and coat with melted butter or cooking spray. Place the biscuits in the pan so they are touching. Top them with coarse salt, chopped rosemary and parmesan cheese and cover tightly with a cast iron lid or foil. Your fire should be pretty mellow to bake these, and your coals should be gray. Clear out a spot in the middle of your fire and put the pan on the ground. Move your gray coals so they totally surround the pot without touching it, leave a 2-3 inch barrier. Put some coals on top of the lid or foil and check after about 10 minutes depending on how hot your coals are. ENJOY!
