Tasty Outback Burgers made in a campfire

Easy Campfire Recipes - outback burgers

We were on the way to the tip of Cape York, and we stopped at The Bend, near Coen. It was late afternoon, but we managed to get a nice spot with a view of the river. It was time for dinner.

Imagine you are in the middle of nowhere and your kids demand to have McDonald’s. It is a tough call, I know – I have been there. 

Luckily I managed to win this battle – my outback burgers were delicious and attracted kids from neighbouring camps.

First, I made burger buns so the whole meal was prepared in the campfire.
