- Cut string cheese (halves)
- Cut string cheese in half
- Wrap with prosciutto ham
- Fill cage so they help secure each other
The simplest foods are often the most delicious, and that goes double for anything cooked over a campfire while enjoying the outdoors. No fancy ingredients are required when cooking over the fire, and the fewer ingredients the better when carting food to the campground or up the trail.
For the easiest string cheese recipe, a handy device called the Burgcage from GrubStick can be used to make delicious, multi-ingredient creations like ham and cheese. The burgcage is a circular, twin-sided metal cage for securing food, then extending over an open flame or campfire
How to Make Prosciutto Wrapped String Cheese With a Burgcage
This recipe is easy to prepare and cook so kids will love helping out. All you’ll need is a package of string cheese (mozzarella melts best) and a package of thinly slice prosciutto is all that is needed. Throw it all in the Burgcage and use the GrubStick handle.
Begin by cutting each piece of string cheese in half. These half pieces can each be wrapped with a piece of prosciutto. Once wrapped, each ham and cheese piece gets stuffed, one at a time, into the open jaws of the Burgcage. When all the pieces are in, the cage door is closed and you have an easy way to grill by turning the cage up or down above the flames. Canadian bacon secured with toothpicks will do as a substitute if you’re not prosciutto fan.
This string cheese recipe is an especially big hit with kids, as it matches the taste of hot pockets but is homemade and easy to prepare. With a little supervision, kids can enjoy creative cooking that beats the problem of blackening skewered hot dogs or burning marshmallows.
