When we go camping we rough it; tents, sleeping bags, over the fire meals etc. One of my favorite meals to make while camping is breakfast. Our lunch and evening meals tend to be similar to what we eat at home (sandwiches, chips, hamburgers, etc) but breakfast we tend to do different things.
There are two main things that I like to cook for breakfast while camping, doughnuts and scrambled eggs. Here’s what we do:
Tin of dinner biscuits
Bag of cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar
Place biscuit on end of multi-pronged skewer, a single skewer doesn’t work well and your biscuit will end up in the fire. Hold the skewer over the fire and cook biscuit like you would a marshmallow, turning semi-frequently.
When biscuit is fully cooked place biscuit in bag and shake until coated. Enjoy!
If you’ve read about my Vegas trip post you will know how much I like breakfast, no different when I’m camping. One of the best ways that I’ve found to make eggs is to cook each person’s individually in a baggy. In a bowl, mix the eggs, dash of milk, seasoning and anything else you would want in an omelet (mushrooms, onions, sausage, bacon, etc), pour into a zip lock baggy and boil in water for about 14 minutes. Super easy and everyone gets exactly what they ordered. You can boil as many bags at one time that will fit in your pot.
I’ll be linking this up over at Life as Mom, do you have any camping meals to share. We’re planning a camping trip in August so I’m looking for good ideas.
