LOOKING for: Breakfast in a Dutch Oven

josouthcarolinaSeptember 11, 2002

A while back on the campfire cooking forum I remember seeing a recipe for a one dish breakfast cooked in a dutch oven,but that forum is now history.

Does anyone out there have such a recipe that they would like to share. I'm going camping Friday and would like to prepare it on this trip.

I would appreciate your help fellow campers.

country breakfast
1 pound bulk pork sausage
1 box dehydrated (NOT FROZEN) hash brown potatoes
1 dozen eggs
1/2 pound shredded cheddar cheese
In the bottom of the Dutch Oven, crumble the pork sausage. Cover with a water and boil until sausage is cooked. Add hash brown potatoes, cover with water, boil until water is dissolved. Fry potato/sausage mixture until potatoes are browned. Remove the Dutch oven from the coals. Using a large spoon, make several depressions in the top of the potatoes. Crack one or two eggs in to each of the depressions. Cover the Dutch Oven. Add heat to the top to cook the eggs. When the whites are white, sprinkle cheese over the top and return the heat to the top of the Dutch Oven long enough to melt the cheese. The yolks should be liquid. Eat and enjoy.

Quick & Easy Breakfast Casserole
(a.k.a. - Cholesterol Casserole)
8 slices of bread
2 pounds of sausage
16 oz grated cheddar cheese
12 eggs
1 qt. Milk
1-1/2 tsp. Dry mustard
1 tsp salt
Line a 12" Dutch Oven with heavy-duty foil. Lightly grease the foil with butter. Break up bread into the oven. Crumble cooked sausage meat over bread and cover with cheese. In a separate bowl, mix eggs (lightly beaten), milk, dry mustard, and 1 tsp. salt (to taste). Pour the egg mixture over the layered bread/sausage/cheese in the oven, cover, and bake for 35 - 40 minutes, checking occasionally. The cheese rises to the top, melting into a golden brown crust over a fluffy layer of eggs, making a super filling camp breakfast for a crowd!

Train Wreck Breakfast
Take the Dutch Oven you used for Cherry Cobbler the night before. Scrape out the big chunks of uneaten cobbler. Toss in the left over hamburger from last night's foil packs. Cook it up so that the grease is rendered. Toss in the chopped onions left over from last night's foil packs. Stir. Pour the grease into the lid upside down over the coals and brown up the leftover thin-sliced potatoes from last night's foil packs. Once the potatoes are brown, dump them into the Dutch Oven. Stir, being careful to flip over the potatoes so that you don't mash them all up. Once the potatoes are cooked, put in about 6 eggs. Stir. Serve once the eggs are cooked. Sprinkle liberally with Tabasco (TM) sauce. If you've got some shredded Taco Cheese, throw that on top.

Mountain Man Breakfast
1/2 lb bacon (or pre-cooked sausage)
Med onion
2 lb. bag of hash brown potatoes
1/2 pound of grated cheddar
1 doz eggs
Small jar of salsa (optional)
The following requires 6-9 bottom coals and 12 -15 top coals:
Pre-heat 12" Dutch Oven. Slice bacon and onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the DO until onions are clear. Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover and stir occasionally to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes) Scramble the eggs in a separate container and pour the mixture over the hash browns. Cover and cook until eggs start to set.(10 - 15 minutes)
Sprinkle grated cheese over egg mixture, cover and continue heating until eggs are completely set and cheese is melted. Optional: cover cheese/egg mixture with a small jar (~ 1 cup) of SALSA. Cover and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Slice and server like quiche. (Real men don't eat quiche but I sure get lots of requests to cook up the Mountain Man.) Cooking times will vary with the weather and your state of awake but its almost impossible to screw up. Serves 6. Rich Locke, Adviser, Post 486, Williamsburg, VA

Breakfast Pizza
All you need is biscuit dough pre-made from the store or homemade if you have the time, eggs, ham, bacon, sausage your preference or all three and cheese. First stretch the biscuit dough thin a spread it over the bottom of the dutch oven so none of the oven can be seen. Then pour a small layer of scrambled eggs over the dough. Add your preference of ham, bacon or sausage or all on top of the eggs if you use bacon pre-cook it. Then spread the cheese over that and cook for 10 to 15 minutes and the Scouts will eat it up. It work for us and was given to our lodge by a Scoutmaster and his troop credit must go to Troop 29 of Union, Mississippi. Happy Cooking. Joe Maxwell, Scouter, OA Lodge Advisor

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Cooking oil
Heat about one and a half inches of cooking oil in the Dutch Oven. Be careful not to allow it to become too hot. Heat over coals, NOT FLAMES! Prepare the biscuits by sticking your thumb through them to make a ring. CAREFULLY drop them from a spoon into the hot oil. Turn them once. Remove them from the oil and roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. WARNING: These are habit forming.
