10 No Recipe Needed Camping Meals for Breakfast
1. Campfire Skillet Breakfast:
In a cast-iron skillet, cook diced potatoes, breakfast sausages, and onions until golden brown. Crack eggs directly into the skillet and let them cook alongside the other ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, and you have a satisfying one-pan breakfast.
2. Breakfast Burritos:
Prepare precooked bacon or sausage, scrambled eggs, hashbrowns or tater tots, cheese, and your favorite toppings. Wrap everything in a tortilla, and you have a delicious handheld breakfast to fuel your camping adventures. I love to make one of those easy pepper gravy packets where you just add water and ladle that over my breakfast burritos!
3. Yogurt Parfait:
Layer yogurt, granola, fresh berries, and honey in a mason jar. The result is a refreshing and nutritious breakfast that requires no cooking at all.
4. Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches:
Slice bagels in half and toast them over the campfire. Spread cream cheese and top with smoked salmon, tomatoes, and red onions for a gourmet camping breakfast.
5. Overnight Oats:
Mix rolled oats with milk, chia seeds, honey, and your choice of nuts and dried fruits in a sealable container. Leave it in the cooler overnight, and wake up to a ready-to-eat nutritious breakfast.
6. Campfire French Toast:
Dip slices of bread in beaten eggs mixed with cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Cook them on a greased griddle over the campfire until they turn golden brown and crispy.
7. Fruit Salad with Cereal:
Combine chopped fresh fruits like apples, berries, and bananas with your favorite cereal amd a splash of milk for a quick and refreshing camping breakfast.
8. Pancakes on a Stick:
Prepare a boxed pancake batter at home or use the kind where you just add water and pour it into a squeeze bottle. On the campsite, squeeze the batter onto hot griddle in the shape of pancakes. Insert a skewer into each pancake for a fun and portable breakfast. Alternatively, you could dip sausage links into the pancake batter and fry them up like corn dogs!
9. Campfire Granola:
Toss oats, nuts, seeds, honey, and a little oil into a foil packet. Cook it over the campfire, stirring occasionally, until the granola is toasted and golden brown. Enjoy it with yogurt or milk. Or bring granola you bought at the store and eat that. 🙂
10. Breakfast Trail Mix:
Combine nuts, dried fruits, chocolate chips, and granola in a large bowl. Pack it in individual bags, and you have a ready-to-eat breakfast for the trail or while exploring the campsite. Serve with some Go-Gurts to round out the meal.
