Campfire Spinach Dip

Campfire Spinach Dip

Camping does not have to be all hot dogs and hamburgers.  One should  include a few family favorites when one head out into the great outdoors.  This Campfire Spinach Dip is sure to become one of yours!

It’s a nice break from the traditional camping fare.  Served with a sliced baguette it makes the perfect breakfast or light lunch.  Creating a tin foil packet to encase the dip in makes cooking and clean up a breeze!

2,5 dl (1 cup) sour cream
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup chopped, frozen spinach (drained)


[1] Mix all of the ingredients together in a container that can easily be packed to take camping.  I like to do this prep work before we travel so that most of the mess is left and cleaned up at home.  The flavours especially blend well together when combined and allowed to rest in the refrigerator for four to six hours.

[2] Create a tin foil packet by layering two pieces of aluminum foil and placing the dip mixture in the center.  A few layers of foil will help to protect the dip from burning and the packet from tearing open.

[3] Roll up the ends of the foil and bake in the campfire {near the hot coals but not in the fire} for 20-25 minutes or until warm and bubbly. Carefully unwrap the packet and serve.

Note This can be kept close to the fire and reheated to stay warm and melty.
