One of the best tips for cooking a campfire breakfast is to stick to ingredients that you can cook quickly over a campfire. That way, you don’t have to spend hours slaving over your breakfast and can focus instead on enjoying the great outdoors with your family and friends.

A cast-iron skillet can be an incredibly helpful and versatile piece of camping equipment. A skillet is where you’ll cook the majority of your camp food.

Pre-cooked foods like sausage patties and frozen hash browns are great staples for a campfire breakfast. You could even throw in leftover cooked potatoes from dinner the night before! Other camping breakfast ideas you can make in the skillet include pancakes, French toast or breakfast sandwiches.

If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, try cooking your breakfast ingredients in a paper bag. It may surprise you to know that when properly greased, a paper bag won’t catch fire, even when it’s placed on an open flame. One idea is to line the bottom and sides of a paper bag with bacon, then crack eggs into the bottom. Cook them over the campfire, and voila – breakfast in no time! You can use this same principle to cook breakfast ingredients in packets made from aluminum foil.

You can also cook a variety of breakfast ingredients inside an orange peel. Canned cinnamon rolls, blueberry muffins and even eggs can be cooked over an open flame inside an orange peel for a hearty breakfast.

And, finally, don’t forget the extra touches that will push your breakfast over the top. Things like basil, red pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese can take your breakfast from camping to glamping in no time.
