How to Make Grilled Cheese on a Stick

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
Everyone likes grilled cheese, but how do you make one when you only have a campfire? Follow this easy solution and you're on your way to a very tasty camping treat.


  1. Start a campfire. It does not need to be very large, but it cooks the sandwich faster.
  2. Assemble your ingredients.
  3. Find a forked stick. It should be about 3 feet long, with two forks at least 4 inches long, about 1/2 inch in diameter.
  4. Either peel off or burn off the bark from the forks.
  5. Butter the bottom and top slice if preferred. Some say that this prevents burning and helps the cheese melt smoother. It also makes it taste very good.
  6. Place the bottom slice of bread on the forks.
  7. Put your cheese on the bread. Sliced is preferred, but you can also use grated if you exercise caution by holding the stick still.
  8. Place the top slice of bread over the cheese.
  9. Hold sandwich about 4 inches above TOP of where fire reaches, not the low points.
  10. Cook one side as desired.
  11. Carefully pull back and hand flip sandwich to other side.
  12. Cook other side as desired. It will not need to be cooked as long, because it got some residual heat from the first side.
  13. Enjoy!


  • Make sure you check to see that your stick is not rotten.
  • Try and do this before it is completely dark outside. Even though the fire will illuminate, it is still very difficult to see your ingredients.
  • Have fun! You can add other ingredients like ham, bacon, and other meats. If you want to add veggies, put them on after you have cooked the sandwich.


  • Exercise fire safety! A good sandwich is little comfort when you have just destroyed 249 acres of land.
  • Do not put your stick in the fire to cook the sandwich. Not only will it burn, your stick can break and the sandwich will fall into the fire.
  • Fire is hot! When you first take your sandwich out from above the fire, wait about 30 seconds for it to cool.
  • Do not try to put shoes or any other articles of clothing in the fire for ANY reason. That's just dumb.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 slices of bread
  • Cheese (Grated or Sliced)
  • A fire
  • Butter (optional)
  • Stick
  • Patience
