Popular Campfire Cafe recipes include sloppy Joes, peach cobbler and stuffed peppers. Each of these popular open-fire recipes were featured on Campfire Cafe, a cooking show that aired from 2001 until 2006 on the RFD network. The program featured these favorites among other unique open-fire specialties created by Johnny Nix, who invited his audience fireside with his signature phrase, "Y'all eat yet?"
To make Campfire Cafe's sloppy Joes, brown ground sirloin in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. For each pound of meat, mix 1/8 cup brown sugar with 1 teaspoon steak seasoning. Stir the sugar mixture into the meat along with chopped onion, chopped red and green bell pepper, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Cook the mixture for approximately five minutes before adding pizza sauce, tomato paste and mayonnaise. Simmer the meat mixture for another five to 10 minutes, and serve the sloppy Joes on toasted rolls.
Make Campfire Cafe's stuffed peppers by sautéing chopped mushrooms, minced parsley and sliced green onions in butter until the vegetables are tender. Stir in cooked rice, toasted and chopped pecans, ground ginger and chicken broth. Scoop out the inside of 8 bell peppers, divide the stuffing evenly among the peppers, and bake them over medium heat in a covered pan for approximately 35 to 45 minutes, or until the peppers are tender.
For a simple dessert, add 4 cans of sliced peaches to a 14-inch Dutch oven. Sprinkle 2 boxes of cake mix over the fruit, and top the mixture with 1 stick of butter cut into pats. Cover the pan, and bake the cobbler for approximately 30 to 45 minutes over medium heat.
