 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 French Bread Pizza recipe 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.

  • 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)

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!

cheese pizza monkey bread recipe

I was going to make the kids mini pizzas for dinner with Pillsbury Grands Biscuits.  But since I had just made Pecan Monkey Bread  I decided to try something a little different instead.  I made a Cheese Pizza Monkey Bread… and let me just say it turned out finger licking good!  Not to mention it looked really pretty too, I love it when a simple recipe turns out “looking all fancy”.

To make this recipe you will need

  • 1 Tube Pillsbury Grands Flaky Biscuits 16.3oz
  • 5 tablespoons butter  2 tablespoons to grease the pan and 3 to pour on top
  • 1/8 lb grated or cubed mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 8 teaspoons pizza sauce
  • Any other topping you would like to add, (I added green peppers)
  • Bundtform Cake Pan

To prep your pan spread 2 tablespoons of butter on the pan then sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon dry Italian seasoning along the sides and bottom.  At the top of the biscuit pull it apart, stuff the inside with 1 teaspoon sauce, cheese and toppings.

Pinch the top back together to seal it back up.  Place seam side up on it’s edge in the pan.  Once you have all 8 of them stuffed, pour 3 tablespoons melted butter on top

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes till top is a rich golden brown color.  Take out of oven and flip onto a serving platter.

Jalapeno Bacon Popper Dip

 

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, a quick and easy dip that is warm and cheesy and will have your party guest asking for MORE, #PoppersDip, #JalapenoDip, #Party, #Recipe

I had a “girls night” with my cousins this weekend, so it gave me the chance to whip up a new dip. It turned out amazing and even my kids liked it! As my 4 year old said, “Mom these spicy pickles are good”. The best part about this dip is you can have a great flavor of the Jalapeno peppers with out the heat.  If you want to spice it up, add more peppers or leave some of the seeds in, but this mild version was perfect for my family.

Jalapeno Bacon Popper Dip

You will need:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix
  • 2 jalapeno peppers  diced(take the seeds out) if you want it hotter 4 peppers
  • 1/3 cup cooked and crumbled bacon  (save a bit back for garnish)
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon parsley

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, a quick and easy dip that is warm and cheesy and will have your party guest asking for MORE, #PoppersDip, #JalapenoDip, #Party, #Recipe

This is the fastest and easiest dip, but taste like you worked on it for hours.  Mix all the ingredients together, till well blended.  Spread on the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish, top with crumbled bacon.  Bake in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes till edges are golden brown.

TIP: I like to bake mine in two smaller dishes (reduced cooking time a few minutes) I like the dip best when HOT and cheesy right out of the oven.  If I cook it in two pans at different times I can put one out at the start of the party, and pull the second one out once the first one is gone.

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipeBaked Chicken Nuggets ~ How to make in 30 minutes or less!

My kids all love chicken nuggets, they love to dip them, eat em and ask for more.  I on the other hand have a hard time with most brands of chicken nuggets… so instead we make our own.  They are whole pieces of chicken, moist, full of flavor and only take a few minutes to make.  Prep and cooking time, you can be done in less than 30 minutes! Once you make these your kids will never asked for the boxed nuggets again.

 

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipe

You will need:

 

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cups crushed corn flakes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ranch dressing mix (dry)
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 cube butter (melted)

 

 

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipeCut your chicken breast in half (length wise) then cut into one inch cubes all the way down.  Three large chicken breast can be diced and ready to go in less than 60 seconds with this method.

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipe Melt the cube of butter into a bowl and put cubed chicken into the butter.

In another bowl combine the crushed corn flakes, ranch dressing mix (dry) and parmesan cheese. Take the chicken cubes out of the butter and roll them into the corn flake mixture and set them on a baking sheet. If you like a thicker coating you can PRESS the chicken into to corn flakes and this will create a thicker crust.  Leave a little bit of room between the chicken for even cooking.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 16-18 minutes till chicken is cooked (cook to 170 degrees).  Enjoy!
