5 Things To Make For Breakfast While Camping
What are 5 things to make for breakfast while camping? You can essentially make the same things for breakfast when you're camping that you would in your home. As long as you have the right tools and utensils, your breakfast options are pretty open. Eggs, bacon, hell even grits can be made as long as you have the right stuff. So, what is it that you'd want for breakfast when you're camping? Toast? Possibly an egg and cheese sandwich? Well it can all be done. Here are five things to make for breakfast while you're roughing it.
What you need:
- cooler to keep the food fresh
- metal pan
- metal pot
- salt and pepper
- eating untensils
- camp fire
- Grits. The first thing you need to realize is that your ancestors were always camping. They didn't have modern kitchens. The majority of the food you eat today, was cooked over outside flames hundreds of years ago. Ok, no more preaching. On to the grits. Make sure you already have your campfire going. Add some instant Grits and water to one of your metal pots. Put the top on. Now all you have to do is hold the pot over the flame. Make sure to stir the grits to keep the lumps to a minimum. Add butter as needed. Once they look nice and smooth. they're ready to be eaten. Add the salt and pepper. Or, you can add the honey. It's up to you.
- Toast. This one is even more simple than the grits. Making toast for breakfast is just a matter of holding the bread over the flames until it starts to harden and blacken. Put the bread on a pan. Hold the pan over the flames. Flip the bread constantly to keep the browning effect even on both sides. It doesn't take very long to knock this out. You can add butter to keep the bread from being too dry.
- Eggs. Line the pot with a little butter to keep the eggs from sticking. Crack a few eggs and throw them in the pot. Use a fork to scramble them. Hold the pot over the flames. Constantly shift the eggs in the pot to make sure you don't burn them. This should take no more than two or three minutes and you're done. You can even throw salt and pepper in the eggs while they cook.
- Bacon. Grab your trusty pan again. Lay the bacon strips side by side. Hold the pan over the flame. Once the bacon starts popping and shrinking, use one of your utensils to flip the bacon over. Once the bacon is brown on both sides, you're ready to eat it.
- Bacon, and egg sandwich. You've learned how to make the bacon. You've learned to brown your toast. Making eggs has also been explained. Slap them all together and you just made yourself a tasty sandwich. You can add cheese if you'd like.
