The best part of waking up is freshly brewed campfire coffee in your cup. Once you get that fire going you will soon be ready for a great breakfast. There are 2 main categories of breakfast – sweet and non-sweet! The following recipes are examples of one recipe for each category: Campfire French Toast Cubes and Campfire Eggs Marlene.




  • Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
  • 1 Loaf         White bread
  • ½ Dozen    Eggs
  • ¼ CC         Whole milk
  • ¼ C            Granulated sugar
  • 1 TBs          Almond extract

Maple syrup, for serving



Using a deep pot for shape, form a double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil and butter it generously. Cube the bread (this is a great use for stale, day-old bread) and dump it into the foil. Combine the next 4 ingredients and pour the mixture over the bread. Be sure that all the bread is covered and let sit for about 30 minutes so that the bread cubes can saturate the egg mixture. When the campfire is ready, cover the bread cubes with a layer of heavy duty foil and put the foil, tightly sealed, on top of the white coals for approximately 30 minutes. After you remove the French Toast from the coals, let it sit for about 10 minutes before serving with the maple syrup.




  • ¼ Lb           Ground sausage
  • 1                 Chopped bell pepper
  • 1                 Chopped small yellow onion
  • 1                 Chopped medium potato
  • ½ C             Sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ Dozen     Large Eggs



The sausage, pepper, onion and potato are best cooked together. If you are not set up to cook these ingredients at your campsite, then you will want to pre-cook those ingredients at home and bring the cooked mixture with you. If you cook the ingredients on the campfire in your cast iron skillet you can finish the meal in the skillet. If you bring the cooked mixture with you transfer it to a double-layered heavy duty aluminum foil bowl and spread evenly on the bottom. Scramble the raw eggs and pour the liquid egg mixture over the sausage and top with the cheese. (The cheese can be shredded, sliced or cubed, according to your taste). Seal the “bowl” with a top layer of the heavy duty foil and place it on the white coals for about 10 minutes.
