Campfire Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients:

  • 4 large tortillas
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup cooked sausage or bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or your favorite blend)
  • 1 cup diced potatoes (pre-cooked or from a can)
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Aluminum foil

Instructions:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat and scramble the eggs until fully cooked.
  2. Add cooked sausage or bacon, diced potatoes, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine.
  3. Lay out tortillas and evenly distribute the egg mixture onto each one.
  4. Top with shredded cheese and salsa.
  5. Roll up each tortilla, wrapping them tightly in aluminum foil.
  6. Heat the wrapped burritos on a campfire grate or in a skillet for about 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until heated through and the cheese is melted.

Ingredients

  • 1 ear of corn, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced thick
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ lb uncooked shrimp
  • 2 andouille sausage
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  • Tear an 18” piece of heavy-duty foil for each packet, along with a 16” sheet of parchment paper for each. Layer the parchment paper on top of the foil.
  • Divide the corn, zucchini, minced garlic, shrimp, spices, and butter between the two sheets of foil.
  • To form the packets, bring one of the short edges of the foil to meet the other, then crimp around all edges to seal.
  • Cook the packets on a grill (or the grill grate over your campfire) for 8 minutes, flipping occasionally.
  • Remove from the grill and let cool slightly. Open the packets carefully – they will be full of hot steam. Top with fresh parsley and enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fruit such as berries , peaches, apples, etc.
  • ½ box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup lemon lime soda , such as Sprite or 7up
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter , cold and cut into bits
  • 1 tablespoons granulated or coarse sugar , optional
  • Whipped cream , for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat 45 charcoal briquettes until white and glowing. Lightly grease the bottom of a cast iron camp dutch oven with cooking spray (see Notes).
  • In a medium bowl combine the cake mix and lemon lime soda. You want a batter that is thick, but moist (it does not have to be precise, I’ve had varying consistencies from stiffer batters to thinner cake-like batters).
  • Place fruit in the cast iron dutch oven and spoon batter over top. Top with bits of butter. Sprinkle with the sugar, if using. Cover the dutch oven with its lid.
  • Place 15 hot charcoal briquettes together and set dutch oven over them. Using tongs, place the remaining 30 briquettes on the dutch oven lid. (This exact number and placement is required to achieve 350°F inside the dutch oven.)
  • After about 10 minutes, rotate the dutch oven over the coals clockwise and the lid over the dutch oven counter clockwise to promote even cooking. Check after 20 minutes, cobbler is done with the topping is golden brown and the fruit juices are bubbling.
  • Remove dutch oven from coals. Serve the cobbler with whipped cream or ice cream.
