3 Cheese Bacon Campfire Potatoes

Share all the things you love!

My husband and I have recently renewed our love of camping! It’s the empty nest stage of our marriage and it’s awesome in so many ways.  This recipe for 3 Cheese Bacon Campfire Potatoes makes cooking outdoors easy and enjoyable.

We spent the past weekend at a PA State Park. Camping is so peaceful and relaxing. We promised each other that we would make it a point to camp more often. Once you reach that empty nest stage of your marriage, renewing your love of the things you enjoy as a couple is invigorating. While we spent a lot of time relaxing, reading and kayaking, we had to eat, too. My husband normally cooks at home, so camping was no different. He did most of the cooking and I cleaned up. It’s awesome to have such a talented husband. He can do so many things and doesn’t complain (too much) while he’s at it.

Campfire potatoes are a big part of meals when we camp. They are easy to prepare and don’t cost much. This time hubby decided to add a few extra ingredients. Too bad, those extra ingredients also add extra calories and fat. Thank goodness there was plenty of time to hike and kayak to burn off some calories. 3 Cheese Bacon Campfire Potatoes are sure to satisfy everyone’s tastes. Who doesn’t love bacon? The best part of them is you can make them for one meal and use the leftovers for another meal. They taste great any time of the day. We made our 3 Bacon Campfire Potatoes as part of our supper. Then we used the potatoes the next morning as part of breakfast. Added some scrambled eggs and green pepper and a whole new meal. YUM! Have you ever tried popcorn over the campfire? It’s my favorite snack. I am going to try the Popcorn Popper from Amazon and see how it turns out. Wish me luck!
