We all love a good mac & cheese and it seems to be one thing we are sure the kids will eat when we’re camping. There are a variety of ways to ramp it up and make it even more appealing. They are easy, delicious, and camping kid approved.
Pizza Mac & Cheese – The kids will go crazy for this one. You’ll need two packages of deluxe mac & cheese, some sour cream, diced tomatoes, a can of pizza sauce, a green and red pepper, shredded Italian cheese blend, and pepperoni. Cook the mac & cheese first but just under enough to have them al dente. Add the sour cream and pour the mixture in to a baking dish. Separately, mix the tomatoes and pizza sauce and add it to the top. Then put your peppers, cheese and pepperoni on top of that. Now you bake it until it bubbles and make the whole campsite smell amazing.
Mini Mac & Cheese Bites – These will be cooked in a mini muffin pan and will make for a great grab-and-go snack for hungry camping kids. You can make these the old-fashioned way with flour, butter, and shredded cheese or just make up a boxed mix. You’ll be adding some Bisquick mix, eggs, and bread crumbs to your mac & cheese mix. Drop by spoonful into the mini muffin tin and sprinkle them with more cheese and bread crumbs. After baking you’ll have fabulous mac & cheese finger food. They will be a big hit.
Chicken Ranch Mac & Cheese – This dish is a favorite and can be made at home and frozen ahead. Then bring it to the campground for an easy and delicious meal. You’ll be adding chicken and some ranch dressing to the main part of the meal and then topping it with bread crumbs and bacon. Oh, my! Give it a try. It will soon become a family favorite.
