Country Fresh Biscuits

Though you might not technically be baking your biscuits while camping, there are still plenty of ways to turn out these tasty and convenient baked treats. Follow the suggestion below and you can have plenty of biscuits on your trip to accompany stews, split for sandwiches or fill with butter and jam.

Pack dry biscuit mix in a plastic bag before you leave on your trip. Also be sure you have plenty of clean water, a mixing bowl and spoon, a skillet or a knife for whittling sticks.

Prepare a hot bed of campfire coals.

Mix 2 cups of biscuit mix with approximately 2/3 cup of water in the mixing bowl. The dough should be stiff and easy to handle.

Pat balls of dough into rounds of dough about 1/2-inch thick and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Place rounds onto a lightly greased skillet. Place the skillet on the campfire grill and allow biscuits to bake uncovered until done.

Gather branches roughly 1 inch in diameter. Wrap the ends of each stick in foil and then form balls of dough around the foil, roughly 3 inches long and 2 inches thick. Toast the biscuits over the bed of coals until golden brown. Slip off the branches and fill the cavity with your favorite filling.


  • You can also use refrigerated biscuit dough or cookie dough if you have a way to keep dough cold.

  • Feel free to make your own biscuit mix instead of using a pre-made version.
