Happy Campers: Fun Snacks on a Stick to Roast

While reading September's issue of Food Network Magazine, I came across an interesting article about different ideas of snacks to roast over an open fire.  Whereas I am NOT a camper, I still felt led to share this! My friends and I still joke about "glamping"- my version of camping, glamour-camping.  We got that idea from USA Today, you can read the whole article here.

Enough already, I know.  Get to the goodies...

Sweet Breadsticks
-Cut strips of refrigerated breadstick dough in half crosswise; thread a piece longwise onto each skewer.  Toast over a flame until golden.  Brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and cinnamon.

Mini Salami Subs
-Split open an Italian sub roll; drizzle the inside with olive oil and fill with sliced salami, provolone, and fresh basil.  Cut into 2 inch pieces.  Thread a pickled pepper and a sandwich piece onto each skewer; toast over a flame until cheese melts.


Pineapple S'mores
-Cut pound cake into squares; spread with dulce de leche.  Thread a square of cake, a chunk of pineapple, a marshmallow, and another square of cake onto a skewer; toast over open flame until marshmallow is browned.


Ham and Cheese
-Spread mayonnaise on sliced white bread.  Sandwich with sliced ham, swiss cheese, and pickles.  Trim the crusts and cut into quarters.  Thread a quarter onto each skewer; toast over a flame until cheese melts.

Stuffed Peppers
-Slice open baby bell peppers.  Scrape out the seeds.  Season the insides with salt and pepper and stuff with a cube of haloumi or feta cheese.  Thread an olive and a stuffed pepper on a skewer; toast over a flame until the peppers blister.

Caprese Bites
-Wrap prosciutto around mini mozzarella balls.  Thread a cherry tomato, a prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella ball and another tomato onto a skewer.  Toast over a flame until tomatoes blister.


Turkey-Brie Baguettes
-Split open a baguette; spread the inside with dijon mustard and fill with sliced smoked turkey and brie.  Cut into 2 inch pieces.  Thread a cornichon (sweet pickle) and a sandwich piece onto each skewer; toast over a flame until cheese melts.

Now if these don't make you want to camp, I don't know what will!!
