Easy Breakfast for a Camping Trip

Easy Breakfast for a Camping Trip
If you're planning a short one- or two-day camping excursion, pack ready-made breakfast burritos for an easy breakfast that you can make in minutes. Most of the prep work is done at your home before you leave, and the rest is done at the campsite. To make this breakfast, you'll need a cooler chilled with ice and a few simple ingredients. Once you arrive at your campsite, pull out the ingredients you need to make the burritos and keep the rest chilled inside the cooler until the following morning.


Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Aluminum camping cookware set
  • Eggs
  • Sausage
  • Shredded cheese
  • Tortillas
  • Oil
Step 1
Prepare your breakfast the night before. For example, toast both sides of a tortilla in a lightly oiled skillet. Top the tortilla with cooked vegetables, meats and scrambled eggs. Each item should be cooked separately to ensure proper cooking is achieved.
Step 2
Wrap the ingredients inside the tortilla to complete your breakfast burritos.
Step 3
Store the breakfast burrito(s) inside a sealed plastic bag or container and store these ingredients inside a cooler. Pack shredded cheese and other toppings, if desired.
Step 4
Pack the cooler with ice and store it out of the sun. Keep the breakfast burritos chilled until you are ready to eat.
Step 5
Place each breakfast burrito inside an aluminum camping skillet, which are available online and at camping stores. Warm for 2 to 5 minutes over a campfire. If you are RV camping, warm the breakfast burritos on the stove or in the microwave.

Tips & Warnings

You can also cook your breakfast burrito at your campsite. Bring your eggs inside a large jar or small container such as one you would use to carry soup. Pack other ingredients in separate zip lock bags and/or small containers. Cook each ingredient using aluminum skillets and pans.
