When it comes to camping with children, you have to do things a little bit different.

You can do sausage if you want, instead. Cook until the bacon is just done, do not over cook it. Remove the bacon but leave in the tasty grease. Now add the hash browns and cook until they are nice and brown. Because you are cooking on a cast iron pan over a direct fire you need the potatoes to crisp up before you toss them around or they will stick too much. Cook for five minutes before flipping. Once the potatoes are done you can add the chopped peppers and onions. You’ll only need to cook them for a few minutes. As that is cooking you want to mix your 12 eggs. If you want, you can add a splash of milk or water, but i don’t think it needs it. Crumble the bacon and add it back into the pan. Now add the eggs. Don’t over mix, just make sure the eggs don’t stick. Once the eggs are almost done, add cheese on top and put the lid on. Let the residual heat finish cooking the eggs. As the eggs finish cooking, add some wraps to any warm place near the fire. We don’t want direct heat, we just want to warm them up to make folding them easier. Add the eggs to the wrap and serve! Salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream are all good extras to add.Take the hassle out of campfire cooking with this easy breakfast dish.

Add margarine or butter on top of the potato bites and salt and pepper to taste. Fold the foil from all corners to the center making sure the package is completely sealed. I use two pieces of foil to be sure no air can escape. Cook over campfire 30 to 40 minutes. To check done-ness, open foil pack and taste a bite of potato. If its cooked enough to eat, your meal is ready. If you’ve never eaten one of these before you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find the hamburger no longer tastes like a hamburger.
