3 Delicious Foods to Cook Using a Fire Pit, Grant, Nebraska

Fire pits offer an inviting spot to enjoy the company of friends and loved ones during a cool fall night. In addition to keeping you warm and providing a beautiful focal point for your gathering, you can also serve your guests up authentic snacks cooked over its flames. Here are three tasty treats to consider making.

What Foods Can You Prepare With a Fire Pit?

1. Popcorn

If you’re looking for a quick snack, popcorn is simple to make and can be personalized to the individual taste of each guest. Simply place one-fourth a cup of popcorn kernels in a disposable pie pan, top it with one tablespoon of vegetable oil, cover it with foil and cook the mixture for three to five minutes. Offer different seasonings to top the popcorn with once it’s done.

2. Ham & Cheese Sandwiches

This easy—but satisfying—dish only requires a few ingredients. Using a large loaf of Italian bread, make deep slits throughout and place ham and your favorite cheese in each section. Top the sandwich with butter and wrap everything in foil, roasting the meal over the fire for around five to seven minutes, or until everything is gooey.

3. Baked Potatoes

Another delicious snack you can make for your guests that is both filling and versatile is a baked potato. It involves little work or monitoring. Simply wash your potatoes and then wrap each in two layers of aluminum foil. Place them in the fire for 10 minutes before turning them over and then cooking them for another five to 10 minutes depending on the size. Offer a host of different toppings, like cheese, bacon bits, and sour cream, to make your own outdoor potato bar.
