 French Bread Pizza ~ Easy Make Ahead Camping Recipe

When I go camping I like to have easy meals, but I also like to have warm hearty meals that will fill my kids tummies.  I love camping recipes that can be prepped and made ahead of time, this is one of our families favorite campfire recipes. These french bread pizzas can be made before you even leave for your trip, I like to then freeze them. Keep them in the cooler and then when you are ready to cook them toss them right on the coals of the fire to cook.

camping menu recipe ideas, french bread pizza made on the campfire, camping hacks, dinner ideas for outdoor cookingTo make this recipe you will need:

  • French Bread (or mini french bread loaves)
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pizza or marinara sauce
  • Pizza toppings ( pepperoni, canadian bacon, olives, pineapple, mushrooms, bell peppers, sausage)
  • Aluminum Foil (heavy duty)
  • Gallon sized ziploc bags (to store them in)

camping menu recipe ideas, french bread pizza made on the campfire, camping hacks, dinner ideas for outdoor cookingCut your french bread in half, spread a thin layer of softened cream cheese on the top and bottom side. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on top of the cream cheese. Layer your pizza toppings and cheese, add the top back on your french bread. Wrap with heavy duty foil, I like to make sure it is wrapped at least two times. This helps it heat more even and avoid being burned.

Easy Camping Recipes ~ French Bread Pizza

I store these in a large gallon ziploc bag, since ice in coolers often melt and leak. The ziploc back will help keep them dry until you are ready to cook them. I then put them in the freezer,  before the ice chest orcooler to help keep them cool on your trip.  Make sure they are thawed before you put them on the fire to cook. It is best to put them on the coals of the fire (instead of the flames). Turn them a few times to help them cook evenly, about 5-8 minutes on the fire and you should have a hot and yummy french bread pizza!

No Machine 4 Ingredient Mint & Chip Ice Cream   by Tiffany

You want to know what I learned this week?! I learned that you could take heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk and turn it into ice cream – thanks to my handy dandy Woman’s Day magazine.  I love homemade ice cream – but really don’t like the hassle that goes along with it.  This recipe is easy peasy and if you have a mixer – you’re in business! The end results were creamy-minty-chocolaty goodness without a lot of fuss! The best part – the flavor combinations are endless. Just start with a base of heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk and use your imagination. 🙂 Of course –  I had to go with my favorite the first time around. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 4 drops green food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. In a standing mixer, beat heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and mint extract (If adding green food coloring, do so now.) until thick, stiff peaks form. Fold in chocolate chips. Transfer mixture to a freezer safe container or loaf pan. Cover and freeze overnight.

hot pocketsToday is kind of a special day because I get to share a special guest post with you. A few years ago I met Aimee at a bloggers event. We totally hit it off and I loved her sweet giving, yet spunky personality.  She recently started her very own blog NaturallySweetLife.com. I hope you enjoy her post and take the time to follow her on facebook  and pinterest. She has such great things to share with you, you will not want to miss it.Aimee guess

 Aimee Guess is a wife, mother, foster parent, and blogger that loves to homestead in their starter home. She raises chickens, rabbits and tends to her garden while sticking to a grain-free and sugar-free diet. NaturallySweetLife.com is where Aimee posts all of her grain-free and sugar-free recipes for others to enjoy, while sharing about her homesteading adventures and money saving tips.

Grain-Free Gluten-Free Hot Pockets

What an honor it is to be guest posting for A Thrifty Mom. Being a fellow thrifty mom that I think I am, I care about feeding my family healthy recipes, but still making sure I stick to my weekly grocery budget. I have one daughter that must eat gluten-free and because of a recent health condition I eat grain-free/sugar-free. Life changes when you can’t eat the conventional foods that we all love, especially when you have to make everything homemade. So, finding easy recipes that taste good is my top priority as a busy mom.

Recently I bought my foster children frozen hot pockets, per their request, and my gluten-free daughter asked if she could have some too. I got to thinking how amazing it would be to come up with our very own grain-free gluten-free hot pocket recipe that we both can enjoy, and let me just say we did! These hot pockets are absolutely amazing. They are good to eat hot or cold. My favorite part is how versatile they are. It’s a basic grain-free gluten-free bread recipe, and you can add whatever add ins you would like.

We recently went camping and took these hot pockets with us. I reheated them in foil on our grill and I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they tasted being heated this way. It was much easier taking these with us and definitely more tasty, than just taking deli meat and cheese wrapped in lettuce. I like having a variety of recipes that we can enjoy, and I am so pleased to be sharing this recipe with you.

hot pocket collageYields: 8 hot pockets, or 12 muffins
