Make some sweet memories this Labor Day weekeend! Invite your children to join you in the creation of these fun treats that can be cooked on a gas grill, charcoal grill or right in the campfire. Parents will want to handle the banana slicing and actual cooking on the heat source, but little hands will enjoy stuffing the bananas with marshmallows, making tin foil tents, and drizzling with chocolate. Oh, and of course the eating!
Keep in mind that you can add anything to these banana boats!

Rubbing salt on potatoes before wrapping them in foil helps to crisp the skin and results in perfectly fluffy insides. You can tell if the potato is baked through without unwrapping the foil by poking a paring knife through to the center. If it goes in without resistance, you’re good to go.

These are beans are on the sweeter side and are perfect with anything off the grill: BBQ burgers, steak or chicken. A little coleslaw to go along with it and you have one heck of a feast. I call them campfire baked beans because I bake them up in a dutch oven, and they could be easily cooked over a campfire. This recipe was found on Cooke's Frontier
