The one-pan camping breakfast

one-pan-English-breakfastUnless you have a big frying pan or plenty of hobs, cooking a full breakfast when camping usually means something will be cold by the time the rest is ready. Here’s a way to get all the satisfaction of a fry-up without the hassle.

All the ingredients for a camping breakfast

Here we are cooking a lunch version on our trusty Cadac camping stove.

Here’s a version with onions, being cooked in the glorious surroundings of Narlay in France. Delicious!

1. Fry your bacon, sausage, veggie sausage, black pudding or smoked tofu (or any combination). Bite-size pieces work best. Cook till crisp.

2. Add some sliced mushrooms. You can add some halved cherry tomatoes too, if you like. Make sure everything is spaced out nicely in the pan.

3. Now, beat your eggs with a little salt and pepper, and add some cheese if you have some going spare, and a few chives or a snip or two of whatever herbs are handy.

4. Pour the egg into the pan, filling in the spaces. Cook till set.

5. Make a vegan version by mixing a pancake batter with gram, rice or normal flour and water or mylk. Use instead of the egg and cheese.

6. Delicious with fruity brown sauce, chutney or ketchup.

7. Serve with toast…you can see which camping toasters work best here.

  1. Having tried this out I’d recommend fast frying the mushrooms before adding the eggs. Otherwise they can make the whole thing a bit watery
