Campfire Breakfast Recipes You’re Sure to Love

Good morning, sunshine! The sun is up, the sky is blue, you’ve got your cup of joe in hand, and you’re enjoying the chilly morning at The Lamp Camp in Long Beach, Washington. It’s that time of day to think up what you’ll make for breakfast. 

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it breaks the overnight fasting period, replenishes your supply of glucose and provides other essential nutrients to keep your energy levels up throughout the day. But, if you’re a real foodie, you know that’s not the real reason why it’s so important. It’s because it’s the most delicious meal of the day. If you’re not a huge fan of breakfast, we can assure you that these campfire breakfast recipes will make you one!

Next time you come to visit us at The Lamp Camp, we’d love to know how these turn out!

There’s just something about campfire breakfast – nothing warms you up after a night of camping like a hot meal in the morning. 

We suggest doing most of the work in advance by peeling, chopping, and par-boiling the potatoes and browning of the breakfast sausage. Just toss it all into a plastic zipper bag and kept it in the cooler until it’s time to put the burritos together.

If you have extra ingredients, wrap up a few more and pack them up for your day of adventures!

If you’re looking for a hearty car camping breakfast, look no further than this cast iron frittata! Blistered cherry tomatoes, sauteed zucchini, and caramelized onions all layered together with parmesan cheese and eggs. However, what makes this recipe special is how it is cooked.

This vegetable-packed campfire frittata is a quick and easy one-pan camping breakfast. Additionally, it can be endlessly adapted to whatever vegetables you have on hand, making it a great clean-out-the-cooler meal on your last morning.

One note is we recommend cooking this with a lid on top since a typical frittata is heated from the bottom and top.

We recommend making the homemade black pepper biscuit ahead of time and bring with you to camp. 

While this recipe calls for breakfast sausage patties, you could always use last night’s burger patties and have that for breakfast OR use burger patties and make this for dinner.

Either way, you can’t go wrong with breakfast food at any time of the day!

A hearty and delicious way to start a day of camping, hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Sausage, onions, potatoes, cheese, and eggs are cooked to perfection over hot coals in your favorite Dutch Oven.

Breakfast skillets are always an easy and convenient breakfast to make whether you’re in the comfort of your home or out camping. The best part? You can throw just about anything into the skillet and you’ve got something mouth watering. 

Hot Ham & Swiss Croissants, buttery croissants, melty cheese, and a honey mustard sauce all melt together to make the perfect sandwich. We recommend adding an egg on top to make it the perfect breakfast sandwich.

We’d love to see your delicious campfire breakfast and if you added your own twist to it. Make sure you tag us if you post it on social media, @thelampcamp.

Until next time, we look forward to seeing you (and your breakfast)
