Camp Chef: Hawaiian Sandwiches

When working on a backcountry cooking menu sandwiches are always a good option. They’re super easy to make and the ingredients can easily be stored and carried in a rig. These Hawaiian sandwiches are no different. They do require some more time than just slapping together meat, cheese, bread, and condiments. The outcome is well worth the wait. Everything blends together perfectly and nothing overpowers when eating these.


  • Burger buns
  • Ham steaks
  • Pineapple
  • Dijon mustard
  • Sliced cheddar cheese
