A Hearty Camping Breakfast Ready on the Go
It is often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and with good reason. Some of the heartiest breakfasts are ones high in calories and laden with meat, potatoes, and eggs. These are the types of breakfast people go to most often to help prepare them with the needed calories for a long day of work ahead.
Activities like hiking in dense forests, climbing mountains, and paddling rivers all require extra calories to help give you the fuel to make your time in nature all the more enjoyable. There are a number of options when it comes to preparing a warm breakfast to help your camp feel more like home while also getting you ready for the day ahead.
Now I know what you are already thinking. A breakfast full of eggs, bacon, and potatoes is going to require a bunch of work. There will be all sorts of dishes to take care of and the whole thing will take the entire morning to get together. Well if that is how you feel then guess what, you are wrong!
The woods are the absolute last place I ever want to find myself faced with a pile of dishes and hours of challenging cooking. A campfire is a wonderful tool to use when cooking, but without some experience, it can be a real chore to work with. This is why I put everything together before I even pack my car or leave my home. And guess what….the only things I need to bring this hearty and delicious breakfast with me are a few tortillas, some aluminum foil, and a resealable plastic bag to keep the whole things dry.
The How To of the Breakfast Wrap
Cold cereal and burnt toast have their place in life but can really fall short when it comes to getting ready for the day. If you are like me, then nothing helps get the day moving better than a warm hearty breakfast.
In my profession, I am forced to do a lot of driving early in the morning and this can make breakfast a real challenge. Thankfully, I was clued in to a wonderful idea many years ago by a good friend who found a handy solution to never having time for breakfast in the morning. The breakfast wrap!
The directions are simple really. The whole process can be completed in one pan in a very short time and is completely customizable to whatever you may like.
Some other ideas you could consider using are:
In each of these recipe ideas, everything can be prepped ahead of time and wrapped in a tortilla easily enough. Tortilla wraps make for easy and effective storage, require very few utensils to eat, can be warmed up easily or eaten cold if needed, and can be eaten on the move when time is short. Camping meals can really be cinch when you put them in a wrap!
