A gratin dish is one that technically has a browned topping of either cheese or bread….ours might have ended with a more browned base than top, but it was still yummy!!
So what do you need to make your tasty campfire gratin? You can prepare it easily at the campfire, but due to us hiking and it absolutely bucketing down with rain that day, I did the preparation at home 🙂
Ingredients For Campfire Gratin:
Sweetcorn (any veg will do if you want veg in it at all!!)
Grated cheese (2 large handfuls)
Blob of butter
Method To Make Campfire Gratin:
To assemble your Gratin do the following:
- Pop the bacon, potatoes, and veg into the pan to fry in a blob of butter.
- Once browned add in creme fraiche and a hand full of cheese to melt into the sauce.
- Heat that all through.
- Once cooked, sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Due to the lack of heat over the top of the pan, this ends up more melted than browned, but that’s why it’s a campfire gratin 😉 And when something tastes so yummy, warms you through in a rain storm, and fills your tummy, technical details don’t matter!!! Enjoy xx
