“This is an adopted recipe from Mean Chef. Mean Chefs words are: These little tid-bits are just plain yummy! They are great to fix when you are camping, or at home! Cooks Note: Bocconcini are small balls of fresh mozzarella. If they are unavailable, cut 8 ounces fresh mozzarella into 1-inch cubes.”
4-6 crackers

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For Camp Fire:
  2. For each s'more, set out two crackers and spread one with about 1 teaspoon of pesto or olive spread. Top with a basil leaf, if using.
  3. Spear a cheese ball or cube on a long stick or skewer. If using fresh mozzarella, squeeze cheese with a paper towel to remove excess water.
  4. Hold skewered cheese over an open fire or very hot coals. Cook for about 2 minutes, turning skewers to soften and brown cheese evenly on all sides.
  5. Using a dry cracker, a fork or a knife, scrape cheese onto cracker with spread and basil leaf.
  6. Top with second cracker to make a sandwich. Eat immediately.
  7. For Home:
  8. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  9. Use 16 thin slices of baguette in place of crackers. Top each slice with a bit of pesto or tapenade, then a piece of cheese.
  10. Cook in oven 8 to 10 minutes, until bread is crisp and cheese is melted.
  11. If desired, finish under broiler for a golden top. Garnish with shredded basil.
