Campfire Mushrooms

Hobo dinners, hot dogs, and s'mores are staples at campfire meals. But if you desire something a little healthier and natural than hot dogs and chocolate, give this Campfire Mushroom dish a try. These are easy to prepare and cook right over your roaring campfire. Who knows, maybe even your little campers will like them!


24 baby bella mushrooms, stems removed

4 scallions chopped, divided into 4

2 Tbsp. pine nuts, split into 4

¼ C. olive oil

salt and pepper

4 sheets of aluminum foil, greased


When removing the mushroom stems, create a cavity for the filling.

Divide the scallions and pine nuts evenly between the mushrooms and spoon some into each mushroom.

Place an equal amount of the mushrooms on each foil sheet.

Drip the olive oil over the top of the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper.

Close up the foil packets and place into the fire in an area where there are smoldering coals. Do not put them directly into flames. This will scorch them on the outside without even cooking them on the inside.

Allow them to cook for about 15-20 minutes and then check the mushrooms for tenderness.

If you want to mix it up a bit, here are a few more ideas for tasty fillers!
