This is a photo from my Iphone (excuse the bad quality) from our last family excursion. We did a horsepack trip into the mountains a couple of weekends ago to listen to the elk bugle and to hike a ridge.
After so many of these trips, I have streamlined my food prep to be mostly at home with easy cooking out in the field. This is a picture of our breakfast burrito I thought I would share with you, so you have a hearty breakfast idea for your next camping trip.
Notice the horse in the background eating calmly? Little did we know they would take off in the night and run all the way back to the truck, leaving us to abandon the tack and gear and hike the 6 miles out. Yes we did catch up with the wild horses and retrieve our gear a day later and came home with a good tale to tell. A great family adventure!!!
Camping Breakfast Burrito
1 Yellow Onion diced
1-2 Cloves of Garlic minced
2-3 Medium sized Potatoes diced
1 Pound Breakfast Sausage (I have used pork or chicken links, whatever you fancy)
- Heat a skillet up to medium on the stove top sauté the garlic and onions 2-3 minutes.
- Add in the potatoes and sauté until they are just starting to soften.
- Add in the sausage and cook until done.
- Let this all cool and package for the trip.
Out in the great wild all you have to do is dump some burrito mix into the pan and heat it up adding your desired amount of eggs. Serve on a tortilla (or not) with some salsa. Add some cheese if you tolerate it and Enjoy!
This makes about 8 servings.
