Thursday Recipe - Mountain Man Breakfast

Here's another camping recipe. This one is a favorite of our scout groups. Feel free to mix it up and change out whatever you want with it. The idea is for a very filling, easy to cook, one pot breakfast. Just be sure you have plenty of salsa and ketchup to go with it.

Mountain Man Breakfast

(This will feed seven or eight normal people or four boy scouts)

1 lb bacon or sausage
1 onion, diced
2 bell peppers, diced
1 lb frozen hash brown potatoes
6 eggs
2 c. shredded cheese

In a large dutch oven, cook bacon or sausage until well done. Remove and set aside. Saute onion and bell peppers in the leftover grease. Add potatoes. Cook and stir until potatoes are lightly browned. Remove and set aside.

Crack eggs into the hot dutch oven. Scramble as they cook. Once they are almost done, add potato mixture. Stir together and remove from the heat. Crumble bacon and stir in. Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic salt, etc. Stir in cheese. Cover and set aside for five minutes until cheese is melted.

Serve with salsa and/or ketchup.

Feel free to add other veggies, meats, etc. Whatever you enjoy for breakfast, although cocoa puffs might be a little much.
