Course Appetizer
Cuisine American
Servings 4


  • 2 bunches of asparagus trimmed
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: chives or green onions


  • Preheat your campfire or grill to medium heat.
  • Lay out four large pieces of aluminum foil, enough to wrap the asparagus and create a sealed packet.
  • Divide the asparagus evenly among the foil pieces. Sprinkle each with salt, pepper, and minced garlic.
  • Place a tablespoon of butter on top of each asparagus bunch.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the asparagus.
  • If desired, add some chives or diced green onion
  • Carefully seal the foil packets, ensuring they are well-closed but still have space for steam to circulate.
  • Place the foil packets on the grill or over the campfire. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender.
  • Carefully open one packet to check doneness – the asparagus should be tender and the cheese melted.
  • Once cooked to your liking, remove the packets from the heat and let them sit for a minute before opening.
  • Serve the cheesy asparagus directly from the foil packets or transfer to plates, and enjoy your delicious, easy-to-make camping meal!
