Waking up with the sunrise is one of the greatest parts about camping. All cozy in your sleeping bag, you have the entire day full of adventure stretching out before you. We’ve all heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is even more true when you’re camping. Adventures call for hardy, hot food that will fuel your body. Next time you go camping, don’t sell yourself short by whipping up another basic freeze-dried omelet with a side of Clif bar. Instead, impress your camp mates and set yourself up for success with this breakfast of champions:
- Flapjacks. A classic, reminiscent of cowboys and the great wilderness explorers. Try out Kodiak Cakes. They are tasty and super easy. Just combine one cup of Kodiak Cake mix with one cup of water, pour onto a pan or griddle and cook for a few minutes on each side. Bring along a small container of maple syrup to top them off with.
- Potatoes. Plan ahead and you wont be sorry. Bring along a baggie full of cut up potatoes, rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and a small vile of olive oil. Combine all of this, wrap it up in aluminum foil, and cook it by the campfire. If fires aren’t a good idea in your area, then combine all of the ingredients in a skillet or pan and cook over your camp stove.
- Bacon. Yes, bacon. Cook it up ahead of time. Then, when you’re preparing the flapjacks and potatoes, throw it in a pan for a minute or two to heat it up, and voila! Bacon-y goodness to top off your superbueno camp breakfast.
- Coffee. Last but certainly not least - coffee. Do not forget to make the coffee. Instant coffee is easy and quick. Just boil some water, add the coffee mix, stir, and enjoy the life-giving goodness.
