Campfire Cooked Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are very good for your body. Packed with nutrients such as vitamins K, C, & B6, as well as fiber, potassium, and omega-3, they will help fuel you up for all your fun activities. Campfire cooked brussels sprouts will add a delicious twist to your campfire meal. This recipe also involves bacon. Who doesn’t love bacon?


8 slices thick cut bacon
2 lbs Brussels sprouts, halved
1 small onion, chopped
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Bacon Drippings
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


1. Cook the bacon till crispy. Reserve the drippings and crumble the bacon once it’s cooled.

2. Lay out a 12” sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and place the Brussels sprouts and onion in the center.

3. In a small bowl, mix the balsamic vinegar, bacon drippings salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Drizzle over the top of the sprouts.

4. Pull the longest ends of the foil up and meet them in the center of the packet. Fold down leaving a little bit of space between the top and the food. Then roll up the other two ends. Ensure a tight seal so nothing leaks out. If you’re worried about it not being tight enough, wrap an added layer around it.

5. Place your foil packet in the hot coals and cook for 15-20 min. Check them to see if they’re done. If not, return to the fire in 5 min increments until tender.

Serve these as a main dish or as a side. Either way, make sure you hang on to this recipe. People will be asking for them every time you hit the campsite.
