Cathy McDavid guest post

a favorite campfire recipe

by Cathy McDavid, author of Mountain Storm Survival

Morning Everyone. I’m delighted to be here today and to talk a little about my latest release, Mountain Storm Survival. My hero and heroine, Rand and Kate, work on a horse ranch situated at the base of the Superstition Mountain. Twice a year, the ranch hosts at risk foster kids for a week, during which they learn teamwork and good decision-making skills through riding lessons, chores and working together. A highlight of the week is an overnight trail ride into the mountains. During their ride, they have to pack all their own food and then prepare it over a campfire. I thought it might be fun today to share one of my favorite campfire recipes with you. This can be enjoyed both for breakfast and as a dessert.

Blueberry Cinnamon Campfire Bread


1 loaf cinnamon-raison bread
6 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Over low campfire heat, arrange bread slices on a greased double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bring foil up the sides, leaving the top open. Whisk together eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla. Pour over bread. Sprinkle with nuts and 1 cup blueberries. Fold edges over top, crimping to seal.

Place on a grill grate over campfire until eggs are cooked through, 30-40 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries; serve with additional maple syrup if desired.

If you want to make this delicious dish at home, there’s an oven version:

Preheat oven to 350°. Place foil packet on a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries; serve with syrup.

I hope you enjoy this recipe the next time you go camping — or even trying it on your grill in the backyard. It’s a real treat.

And thank you again for letting me share the news of my latest release with you, Mountain Storm Survival.

Warmest wishes,

Cathy McDavid

NY Times and USA Today bestselling author CATHY MCDAVID wrote her first book at sixteen. The self-illustrated children’s story featured a young girl whose lack of responsibility nearly resulted in the demise of her pet fish. It’s quite possible the book was an autobiography, but Cathy’s not telling. She wrote her second book, and first romance, at nineteen with the help of a portable Smith Corona typewriter. One never knows how the unrequited crush on a college professor will affect their eventual career. These days, with over 57 titles and 1.6 million books in print, she still incorporates a little of her own life in each story. A lover of all things western and former avid horsewoman, her stories include riding, ranching, and rodeo because, well, who doesn’t enjoy a good cowboy romance? Mother of grown twins and married to her own real-life sweetheart, Cathy is living her dream penning heart-stopping suspense thrillers and heart-touching family dramas for Harlequin.

    This will be a very suspense-filled book to read and enjoy. The recipe for Blueberry Cinnamon Campfire Bread sounds delicious. Do s’mores count as a campfire recipe?
