Honey Mustard Hot Dogs and BBQ Beans for the Campfire
Cooking while on a family camping trip isn’t the easiest thing to do. Lugging around the portable grill and other cooking equipment can be a major hassle that doesn’t always pay off when it comes to taste.
That’s why we love a good old fashioned campfire for preparing meals while spending time in the wilderness. Campfire meals are easy, quick and many recipes are even perfect to let the kids grab a stick and help cook!
One of our favorite meals for camping is hotdogs with a side of baked beans and, of course s’mores for a kid-friendly dessert.
Forget the boring ketchup. We’ve got the perfect sauce mixture to make your hotdogs a hit at the family campfire dinner!
Kickin’ Honey Mustard Hot Dogs
1 pack of hot dogs
1 pack of hot dog buns
1 bottle of regular yellow mustard
1 bottle of Moore’s Honey BBQ Sauce
While you can make the hot dogs on site, we suggest mixing all of the baked bean ingredients together before heading to the campsite. This way the only thing you have to do is throw them over the fire to heat them up when you’re ready for dinner!
Best Ever BBQ Baked Beans
Place uncooked hotdogs on a stick
Heat over fire until hotdog is fully cooked
Mix equal portions of the yellow mustard and Moore’s Honey BBQ Sauce in bowl. (For more kick, use more Moore’s Honey BBQ Sauce than mustard)
Put hotdog inside the bun and add honey mustard mixture
1/2 lb sausage crumbled and cooked
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons olive oil (or other vegetable oil)
1 - 31 oz cans pork and beans

For an interesting twist on the typical s’more, we got this Campfire Cones recipe from KidsActivityBlog. These are so much fun to let the kids put together themselves!
