Vegetarian Ideas when Camping; Pizza Grilled Cheese

When most people think of camping they think of steaks, burgers and grilled chicken kabobs. There are blogs completely dedicated to what to eat when camping. For us making a menu has been a little bit harder since we have been vegetarian now for over a year.

I am going to do a series of blog posts this summer highlighting some of the best meals that we have had. (I may even give you a copy of my menu plan).

So without further adieu, here is the first menu item.

Pizza Grilled Cheese.


I actually got this idea from a fellow vegetarian who has helped me out of more than a couple nights of “Help! I don’t know what to make!!” Cooking it over the fire is just a bonus!!

What you need:

Cheese (even Daiya will work)
Veggie peperoni slices (or veggie ham)
Tomato sauce
Anything else you like to have on a pizza…..

Basically you just make a grilled cheese sandwich but on the inside spread some tomato sauce and toppings, add the cheese, top with the bread (buttered on the outside) and cook in the fire with one of these awesome things!

I have never had a better plain grilled cheese – and the Pizza Grilled Cheese was just to die for! Of course you can always use extra tomato sauce for dipping!!

I think the kids LOVED it as much as I did! The best thing about these is that they are not camping specific, if you want to get more protein or veggies into your kids – try have one of these at lunch!
Try it out and let me know what you to include in your Pizza Grilled Cheese in comments.

    We make these every time we go camping. We’re not vegetarian so we add pepperoni but I know they are great without it. Yum!

    Looks delicious! My daughter is seriously addicted to grilled cheese sandwiches right now so I’m going to try these for lunch tomorrow!

    Why didn’t I think of this? The kids will love these when we camp. I bet pizza quesadillas would be great too. Thanks for a yummy idea!
