Get Your Campfire Ready For Cooking


Light the campfire fire early enough to have hot coals … instead of flames … when you are ready to cook. Some of the best gadgets for campfire cooking include these Campfire Log Tweezers, Dutch Oven Lid Stand and Dutch Oven Lid Lifter. 😉

For my Stuffed Baby Bells Dutch Oven Campfire Appetizer recipe, you’ll need to chop the onions, garlic and prepare the peppers. I like using super lightweight camp kitchen gear that I can hang from hooks like my Flexible Cutting Mat Set! The set has 3 convenient sizes so I always have the right size mat for every task. 😉

In cast iron skillet over medium heat, brown this: 

  • 1/2 pound ground mild Italian sausage

Then add these and cook till softened:

  • 2 cloves garlic – chopped
  • 1 small onion – diced

Remove from heat and mix in these:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese – softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper – to taste

Split and stuff the peppers:

  • 12 mini bell peppers – split in half lengthwise, deseeded and deveined

Split peppers, spoon in cheese mixture and place in bottom of non-preheated 12-inch cast iron camp Dutch oven and cover with lid.


You can use a Camp Dutch Oven Tripod or a Heavy Duty Over Fire Camp Grill to hold your oven as you bake these Stuffed Baby Bells Dutch Oven Campfire Appetizers … just make sure you have a nice pair of Heavy Duty Heat Resistant Gloves to keep your hands and arms protected from the heat while you are adjusting the coals to control the cooking temperature during the process. 🔥

Stuffed Baby Bells Dutch Oven Campfire Appetizer Cooking Tips

Camp cooking tip: Place Dutch oven on grate over campfire coals and top with additional coals on Dutch oven lid. You are looking for approximately 350 degrees but the exact temperature is not important because you are just baking until the stuffing is bubbly and peppers are softened which should take about 20-30 minutes.

Camp cooking tip: About 10 minutes in, using a Dutch oven lid lifter, remove the lid to see if the bottom of the peppers are cooking faster than the top. If so, take some of the coals from below the oven and transfer them to the top. You are striving for a relatively even temperature when cooking this campfire appetizer.
