Camping breakfasts are some of the most fun times you’ll have on the trail.
You don’t have to go back to cowboy days to see how a traditional camping breakfast warms the heart, and the gullet. Our camping tours often have these nice spreads laid out as you get your morning cup of camping coffee, and get ready to get up and go.
What are some of the most popular components of camping breakfasts? Here are a few.
Sausages are one of the easiest things to cook on the trail. Unlike bacon, they don’t require quite the precision, and they get a nice golden brown over the fire. For those worried about proper cooking, there are a few options – you can precook the sausage, then warm it on the grill. You can use smaller, thinner links that cook more quickly. Or you can use a food thermometer just to check that your pork or chicken products, or whatever you’re cooking, is fully heated to a safe temperature in the middle.
Toast on the Grill
Do not by any means overlook the appealing quality of grilled toast.
We’re used to slapping two slices of bread in a toaster, but a camping fire can make even better toast. Slather some butter from your cooler, and you’re in culinary heaven.
For the kiddos or anybody who just likes something quick and easy, pour milk over cereal and enjoy. You’ll just have to make sure you have good cleaning equipment for those bowls and spoons.
Fruit is Mother Nature’s way of jazzing up your breakfast with natural foods high in antioxidants and fiber, as well as juices that can help hydrate you and your palate as you awaken. It’s also a good idea to wash your breakfast down with some refreshing cold water, because after all, this is the essential element that you need to survive.
A good roasted potato can be a great breakfast food, too! Again, you can roast these at home, wrap in foil, and then throw near the fire to get them hot and delicious.
That’s just a little about the amazing breakfast that you can put on anywhere in the great outdoors. You don’t have to seek for obscure delicacies when some of the best and brightest tastes around are right under your nose.
