Camping Food: Breakfast Sandwich

My husband is a bacon and eggs sort of guy. There has really only been one time our entire marriage when he’s asked me for something sweet for breakfast. And it was some funky nutella and chocolate stuffed french toast thing smothered in chocolate sauce. Which I refused to make. {until father’s day, but don’t tell}.

So it wasn’t a big surprise to me when he showed the most excitement for the first breakfast we had on our trip last weekend…

The breakfast sandwich is a huge deal in the Hallows family apparently. Especially when you slap it on some fancy bread {or in this case, croissants}. My brother & sister in-law were in charge of this yummy meal, and were actually worried that they would be too generic…

Our response??

Anyone that takes the time to fry up enough eggs for a small army is ok in our book!

Breakfast Sandwich

Eggs
Cheese
Meats {bacon, Canadian bacon, ham… Whatever you fancy}
Bread/rolls of your choice
Butter
Either a portable grill, or an over the fire grill

PREP WORK: Slice up your cheese, and butter your rolls. Technically this can be done in advance, but we’ll pretend you are all procrastinator’s. Just like I am.

GET COOKING: Crack those eggs onto your grill of choice, and season to taste. Cook for 1-2 minutes, then flip. Place one slice of cheese on each egg and allow to melt while it finishes cooking on the second side. While that is happening, place your chosen meat onto the grill to heat up. Feel free to toast your bread as well.

EAT UP: Build your sandwich, and serve.


These are perfect for morning’s that you will be on the go. You could serve some fruit on the side. The eggs really fill you up, and give you a nice boost of protein to start the day. I also like that these are super changeable. You can adjust anything to your liking. We broke the yolks, but I know a lot of people that enjoy them runny.

I’d love to hear what you like on your egg sandwich’s!?

    i really like this idea! how do you keep the eggs and meat cold while you’re camping, especially for multiple days in a row?

      We stuck them in a cooler with LOTS of ice packs, and made these the first morning. Our cooler actually stayed pretty cold the entire trip, but we always try to eat stuff like this right away.

        With many years of camping under my belt (40+) I would like to share a secret to keeping things cold or frozen in your cooler… first, make sure you have a well insulated cooler.. No styrofoam. I have an old, old Coleman Refrigerator and a newer cooler.. both work well.
        Second, you will need 4-6 heavy duty paper bags ( the heavier the better) Paper is an natural insulator and this will create an ic box within and icebox..
        To start fold up the bottom of the paper bag and lay them flat next to each other in the bottom of the cooler.. Next, I put all of my frozen items on one side of my cooler stacking them to about mid way up the cooler. (See note) Next, put flat cooler packs in the bottom of the other side and stack other refrigerated stuff like condiments, butter, milk, cheese etc. on the other side and on top of frozen food. Remember, the fuller the cooler the colder it stays. After you have everything in there. including the kitchen sink.. lol!! Place more cooler packs top of everything and add another layer of paper bags and you are ready to close the lid andgo. I use my second cooler for perishable veggies and fruit. Prepare the second cooler the same way but I place the large ice packs into the unfolded part of the bag at the bottom so the food doesn’t sit directly on the ice pack.. Do the same at the top . I know this sounds complicated but it really isn’t.
        :Note: When I camp I bring alot of my meals already prepared and frozen (ie: barbequed chicken & pork, lasagna in foil pan, cooked ground beef or turkey, etc.) so I just defrost what I am going to make that day… the less you open your cooler the longer it stays cold.. I have had things stay frozen for days with this method..
        Happy Camping.

    We LOVE egg sandwiches!!! I like mine with bacon!! My husband likes his with sausage. I always precook my bacon so it’s fast and not so messy! I love the croissant idea! Definitely trying this next time we camp!
