Campfire Spinach Dip

I often add this recipe to our menu plan when we are camping for a week or longer.  It’s a nice break from the traditional camping fare.  Served with a sliced baguette of french bread it makes the perfect lunch or light dinner.  Creating a tin foil packet to encase the dip in makes cooking and clean up a breeze!

250ml {1 cup} sour cream
250g {1 pkg} cream cheese {room temperature}
Optional:  vegetable soup mix, bacon, garlic, mozzarella cheese, green onions, artichoke hearts etc.

Mix all of the ingredients together in a container that can easily be packed to take camping.  I like to do this prep work before we travel so that most of the mess is left and cleaned up at home.  The flavours especially blend well together when combined and allowed to rest in the refrigerator for four to six hours.

Create a tin foil packet by layering two pieces of aluminum foil and placing the dip mixture in the center.  A few layers of foil will help to protect the dip from burning and the packet from tearing open.

Roll up the ends of the foil and bake in the campfire {near the hot coals but not in the fire} for 20-25 minutes or until warm and bubbly.

Carefully unwrap the packet and serve.

This can be kept close to the fire and reheated to stay warm and melty.  There are so many ways to alter this recipe to suit your family!  Darcy prefers to have it with bacon bits.  I think that adding artichoke hearts would be delicious too.  Meeting friends or family during your trip?  Treat them to this delicious Campfire Spinach Dip and you are sure to WOW them!
This recipe is actually a spin off of one of our favorite holiday appetizers Four Ingredient Baked Spinach Dip.

    Made this last on our last camping trip. Rave reviews from all including young kids.
    I added a can of diced water chestnuts and two garlic cloves. Made at the campsite and didn’t have a bowl to pre-mix it together. Chopped up the cream cheese and threw it and all other ingredients into a foil pie tin, cooked over fire grate 20 minutes, removed and stirred. Will make this over and over again!
