3 Healthy Easy Breakfast Recipes When Camping

1. Breakfast Burritos:

Healthy Easy Breakfast Recipes

Do you like the concept of prepping your breakfast before going camping? Then you’ll like this recipe. Like the Lumberjack and Omelet breakfasts, this one may be prepared at home the night before and enjoyed the next morning at the camp. Your breakfast is ready and waiting for you to warm it up.

It sounds like a lot of work, but you can get everything done in just one frying pan. The concept assumes there is a lot to making this recipe, but there isn’t. Don’t let yourself get too overwhelmed.

Ingredients (for 4 persons):

• 4 Tortillas

• 8 Eggs

• 6-8 bacon pieces, finely chopped

• 1 onion, chopped

• 1 ½ cups shredded cheese

• 4 coarsely chopped hash browns

• Tomatoes (optional)

• Salt

• Pepper


The eggs should be whisked together in a dish, season with salt and pepper to taste. Depending on who will be enjoying the burritos, you may add a dash of your favourite spicy sauce.

Set aside when the eggs are all foamy from stirring.

Cook the chopped onion and bacon in a skillet over medium heat using a propane stove.

Hash browns should be added at the end of cooking so that they may become fully cooked and gently browned. So, stir softly to mix all flavours.

Stir in the eggs until they are done – you don’t want them to be rock solid, just barely set and scrambled. Keep an eye on the eggs at this time since they cook rapidly.

Put in the cheese and anything else you’d want (it all depends on what you have in the kitchen), such as chopped tomatoes, chilies, or herbs. Note you may use Swiss army knives for chopping; (they are recommended for their excellent sharpness). Toss all ingredients together over low heat.

Turn off the heat.

Place enough filling down in the centre of a gently warmed tortilla and roll it up like a burrito. It will be easier if your tortilla has been slightly warmed.

Wrap it securely in foil before placing it in a Ziplock bag. Refrigerate until ready to use or you can also set it in your cooler until you are ready to eat.

Reheating may be done at the campground using a hotplate, a frypan, the campfire coals, or any other pots in your cooking kits. Flip the foil packets over a few times to guarantee equal cooking and browning of the tortillas. Allow about 15 minutes.

2. Dutch Baby Pancake:

3 Best Easy Breakfast Recipes When Camping2

Try making pancakes in a camp oven to continue with the pancake theme. For breakfast and cooking using a camp oven, someone must wake up a little early to start the fire and have coals ready to go for this meal.

As a result, it’s not a quick recipe to make in the morning since you have to care about the cooking time. On the plus side, this makes an excellent dessert to serve with your evening meal!

This recipe calls for making one large pancake and filling it with your favourite fruit, as in berries (of any sort). However, you may enjoy this pancake with maple syrup, jam, lemon, and sugar.

Ingredients For A 5L Dutch Oven:

• 6 large eggs

• 1 cup flour

• 1 cup of milk

• 1 teaspoon salt

• 2 tablespoons sugar

For Smaller Dutch Ovens:

• 2/3 cup milk,

• 1/2 cup plain flour

• 3 large eggs

• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 1/4 teaspoon salt


At home, combine all of the dry ingredients.

When it’s time to start cooking, combine the wet and dry ingredients (take the eggs out of the fridge or ice cooler for a few minutes, you don’t want them too cold) and mix vigorously. You want a mixture that is devoid of lumps.

Still, have lumps? Whisk quicker and harder.

When your Dutch oven is hot, add a couple of tablespoons of butter and swirl it over the bottom.

The camp oven should be hot and oiled.

Do not whisk the lump-free mixture; instead, pour it into the heated camp oven and top it up with the berries (if using) (and coals).

Cook for around 15-20 minutes.

Check the center of the pancake to see whether it is done. The edges will be golden and crisp up.

Continue checking after 15 minutes.

The pancake will rise and become fluffy in the camp oven. BUT… as soon as you take it off the heat, it deflates. Refrain from being surprised or concerned if this occurs.

You may eat it directly from the camp oven or serve it on plates with other fruit. If you don’t have fruit on hand, lemon and sugar are a safe bet.

3. Omelette in A Bag:

3 Best Easy Breakfast Recipes When Camping3

The idea has been in use for a while. Some people like it. Others are concerned about the health effects of cooking in a plastic bag.

It will come down to your preference – you must decide whether or not to use these bags. 

If you have family members who enjoy various things, this recipe lets everyone make their omelet.

Get a sturdy big Ziplock bag. You want something of excellent quality, something that is STRONG. Check that it is microwave safe to know it can withstand high temperatures.

Ingredients (per bag):

• 2 eggs

• ½ cup shredded cheese

• Chopped fillings of your selection, such as mushrooms, ham, onions, tomatoes, corn, capsicum, or anything else you want in an omelette.


Fill a fairly big resealable zip lock bag halfway with the eggs.

Seal after pressing out most of the air. Squeeze or shake the eggs within the bag. Open the bag and add the omelette contents of your choice.

Place your bag and any extra bags in a big kettle of boiling water.

Cook for 10 minutes. However, check the eggs halfway through the cooking time, at 5 minutes. The bags float a bit but don’t be too concerned about it.

I use a spoon to poke holes in them and lower them gently into the water.

If you’re worried about your bag slipping into the boiling water, put a skewer over the pot and thread the bags onto the skewer. Alternatively, use clothes peg to secure them to the skewer. In that manner, they are submerged in water without sliding down or clinging to the pot’s edge.

I got a clothespin and clipped them all together at the top, which worked well. In a pot, we have four bags.

Unzip the bag and roll it out onto your plate when the omelette is cooked to your taste.

If desired, sprinkle some salt and pepper and serve with some chunky salsa.

Let’s recap:

Burritos which can be prepared at home before the trip and reheated at the campsite.
