Deluxe Scrambled Eggs

Kickstart your day with a classic camping breakfast: scrambled eggs. They’re incredibly versatile—mix in veggies like spinach, onions, peppers, and mushrooms for a nutritious boost, or add pre-cooked bacon or sausage for some extra sizzle. And don’t forget a side of toasted bread to complete this hearty meal. Remember to pack your eggs in a hard-shell case or a securely sealed container to avoid any breakage while traveling.

Just generally, as we all know, when it comes to camping etiquette, always aim to leave your campsite as you found it. Keep eggshells in a plastic bag and crush them to save space; then bring them back with you to compost or dispose of properly. Although eggshells are compostable, leaving eggshells or any waste behind is not only inconsiderate to the next visitors but can also attract wildlife. Sorry for the rant, you know all this stuff—here’s the recipe:

Instructions Ingredients
Cook the bacon or sausage in a skillet until crispy.

In the same skillet, fry the eggs to your liking.

Toast the bread or muffins.

Assemble the sandwich by placing the fried egg on the bottom half of the bread, adding cheese, bacon or sausage, and topping with green onions.

Serve hot.

Spinach (handful, chopped)

Onion (1 small, diced)

Bell peppers (1, diced)
