From the Camp Kitchen: Cheese & Chive Damper

One of my favourite foods to cook on the road is damper. It is so easy and so versatile. You have the choice of the sweet or savoury varieties. Last weekend I cooked a Cheese and Chive Damper for Shaun to take out harvesting to share amongst the workers. They really enjoyed it. I use a mix of SR & normal flour, a pinch of salt, some butter, some milk (if handy) and a dash of beer as the base and then I add the extras to spice it up. I love the following combinations: golden syrup, cheese & bacon, cheese and chives, sweet chilli & cheese, olives and sun-dried tomatoes, dates or sultanas. The options are endless.

  1. Oh That looks so yummy – we make damper all of the time, but we havent thought to add cheese and chives or any other combinations. Now I cant wait to try it 🙂

    1. Thanks Lisa. There are some yummy ones. Take a photo and let me know how your combinations taste. Another one I want to try is apple and walnut.
