The Camping Breakfast

Who doesn’t like the great outdoors?  Fresh air, sunshine, campfires, stargazing – all great stuff.  But when you roll out of that sleeping bag in the morning, there’s nothing like a great breakfast to get your day started.

We use a Coleman “Grill Stove” to do the cooking.  I’m not completely sold on it and don’t do enough camping anymore to get really efficient on it, but it does the trick – at least when cooking for two.  Add another plate in there and it may fall short, depending on your appetite.

The Camping Breakfast for Two:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 potatoes (pre cooked and diced)
  • 3 slices thick cut bologna
  • 2 English muffins
  • 2 cheese slices (whatever you have)
  • salt and pepper (or Montreal Steak Spice) to taste
  • butter, margarine or cooking oil

The first step is to fry up the diced potatoes until crisp.  While crisping and browning the potatoes add a bit of steak spice to season them up.  Meanwhile, light up the grill side of the stove to use as a warming / holding area.  Transfer the potatoes to a holding pan, cover with foil and keep warm.  Fry up the bologna until browned and crisp.  At the same time, split the English muffins and toast directly on the grill side.  Stack and add to the grill side.  Fry up the eggs – for sandwiches, we break the yolks just to save on the mess.  Assemble the sandwiches with two eggs, a slice of bologna and a slice of cheese – whatever you have.  Serve with the remaining bologna and  fried potatoes.
