Waking up in your tent the morning and knowing you have a delicious breakfast to look forward to will make you the King/Queen of the campsite. Check out our guide to the best camping breakfast foods.
Your favorite banana bread is something worth making in bulk, so you’ve always got some on hand in your freezer. Biting into delicious bread when camping is such a treat! And if you’re camping with a lot of people (especially kids), baking your recipe in a mini muffin pan cuts out the step of slicing while at camp.
At home: Wash and chop up several kinds of fruit, and smaller pieces are usually better if intended to go in a parfait. Pineapple, grapes, apples, blueberries, raspberries – just about anything is delicious! If using a fruit that gets brown like apples, dip them in orange juice after chopping and dry on a paper towel (the orange juice will still taste great too). Consider bringing granola or nuts as well.
At camp: Using individually bought yogurt containers will cut down on your cleanup. Simply layout your Tupperware full of fruit and nuts/granola choices and let everyone make their own!
Peanut Butter Tortilla
Spread peanut butter on a tortilla (warmed is even better), peel the banana and roll it up in the tortilla. You could cut the banana in half lengthwise and use only half of it for little ones or cut the snack into bite-sized pieces after it’s rolled.
Avocado on Toast
At home: Boil your eggs. Afterward, mark the shells with a sharpie so you don’t get them mixed up with any raw eggs while at camp.
At camp: Chop up your boiled egg. Either slice or mash up your avocado. If you have a cast-iron skillet, heat it up, spray it lightly with cooking oil, and add your bread, turning once brown. Layer the avocado and boiled egg on your toast, add some salt and pepper, and enjoy!
Boiled egg sandwich
At home: Boil your eggs.
At camp: Assemble simple but delicious breakfast sandwiches. Use English muffins and add your favorite cheese, sliced ham or pre-cooked bacon, and the sliced boiled egg.
Deluxe Camping Meal
Taking the extra step of quickly heating all the ingredients for this deluxe camping meal in a pan before assembling can make this even tastier. Better yet, cook fresh eggs to go in the English muffin if you’ve got the time and energy.
At home: Wash and chop up any veggies you’ll want in your scrambler. And purchase frozen cubed potatoes or frozen hash browns.
At camp: Start cooking the potatoes as directed on the package, add in your veggies and eggs towards the end of the cooking time and top with shredded cheese.
Right, we are now hungrier than ever. Remember you can always add or take away items that you don’t like. Cooking things at home first can be a real timesaver, or you can just cook it all at the campsite, it is up to you!
