Take your Cast-Iron Mac n Cheese to a whole new level by cooking it on the grill over your campfire.
This campfire mac n cheese doesn’t get the broiler treatment to crisp up the top and give you crunchy bits some of us are used to when eating mac n cheese.
Instead we use a pan over the campfire to toast our bread crumbs before adding on top for extra texture. Once you make this version of mac n cheese, you will want it every time you go camping, it’s really that good.
To save time you can toast your breadcrumbs at home before you leave for camping. Store in a plastic zip up baggie. You should also grate your cheese and store the same way.
This Cast-Iron Mac n Cheese took trail and error a few times to perfect. It curdled, the milk was too cold, and other challenges. We kept at it and it now comes out beautifully.
Leftovers are optional but when there are we heat them up in a buttered pie iron ensuing crunchy bits on both sides.
- Toast breadcrumbs in advance
- Use whole milk and let warm up first
- Any combination of cheese works, grate in advance
- Use butter, not margarine
- Have patience
