Camping Mac N’ Cheese

Prep time: 20 mins / Cook time: 10-20 mins / Serves: 4 Category:


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain cooking liquid.
  2. Stir alfredo sauce into the cooked pasta with the three cheeses and enough milk to keep things loose {This is so your mac and cheese doesn’t dry out while it’s staying cool.}
  3. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Divide between four mini aluminum pie tins {or one big one}, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Spray one side of aluminum foil with more nonstick cooking spray and cover each individual mac and cheese portion, sprayed side down, facing the food. Seal well.
  6. Prepare a fire and let it burn down to the coals. Place a cooking rack over top that would be 2-3 inches above.
  7. Place each pie tin over the hot coals and cook 8-10 minutes or until hot. Remove from fire and serve immediately.


  • 1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 8 oz prepared Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4-1/2 cup half and half or whole milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


You can also just bake these at home in a glass baking dish at 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or so. Try mixing in vegetables like peppers or broccoli to boost the nutritional value.

If baking in an oven, add breadcrumbs to the top of the mac n’ cheese for a crispy topping!
