Quick Easy Camping Breakfast Ideas – Awesome Easy Recipes

Quick Easy Camping Breakfast Ideas

It’s early (say, about 6:30 or 7 am). Your eyes slowly open and your ears awaken to the sound of birds singing. And you just lay there for a little while enjoying the sounds and smells of the woods. After while you begin to hear your fellow camping comrades wake up. It’s a gorgeous day and it’s time for a new adventure. But firsts things first, you gotta eat! And take it from me, the easier the meal is to prepare and clean up after, the better. So I wanted to share some quick easy camping breakfast ideas with you. Enjoy!

Breakfast Burrito Anyone?

This first option works best if you pre-make them at home, wrap them up tight in some tin foil and store them in a large Ziploc bag. Keep them refrigerated or on ice until cooking time. And when you’re ready to cook, heat them over hot embers in the campfire and enjoy! Here’s how to prepare them…

Ingredients                                                                                                                                                                                        Quick Easy Camping Breakfast Ideas

  • 1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
  • a dozen eggs
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles, drained
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 (12 inch) flour tortillas

Once you have all the ingredients together, this is how to prepare the breakfast burritos. Ideally you are going to be doing this part in your kitchen at home before your camping trip.

First brown the sausage until it’s fully cooked in a 12-inch skillet. While the sausage is cooking, beat the eggs with a whisk until they are blended well. When sausage is cooked all the way, pour the eggs into the skillet. Cook, stirring frequently until the eggs begin to set up. When the eggs have started to set up but are still runny, add the green chilles and continue to cook until eggs are set. Then add the cheese and stir it in so that it is distributed evenly and remove from heat.

Place your tortillas in a microwave safe dish, cover and microwave on high 30 to 45 seconds to soften. Place 1 tortilla on a large piece of tin foil. Spoon 1/8 of the egg mixture onto the center of the tortilla. Fold in the ends and roll it into a burrito shape. Then wrap the burrito tightly in the foil. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and egg mixture.

Store the burritos in the fridge or on ice in the ice chest until it’s time to cook. Then place the wrapped burritos on hot coals next to fire. Cook until burritos are heated thoroughly, about 10 or 15 minutes depending on the heat from the fire. Carefully flip them over halfway through cooking time to ensure they’re heated evenly.

Campfire Roasted Cinnamon Rolls

If you can roast marshmallows, you can easily prepare this next breakfast snack. And the kids will love it!

Ingredients

  • Can of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
  • Roasting Prongs (double pronged)
  • Campfire With Hot Embers
  • Plastic Butter Knife – To spread icing on rolls (optional)

Pop open the can of cinnamon rolls and carefully divide them. If the can contains a cup of icing, place it to the side for now. Insert the prongs through the side of the cinnamon roll in the middle of the roll. Hold your cinnamon roll over the hot embers and rotate it frequently to evenly cook all sides. Depending on the heat of your campfire, it should take about 8-12 minutes for the cinnamon rolls to be cooked all the way. When they are done, remove the rolls from the fire and let them cool. Before they cool entirely, carefully spread the icing over the rolls (optional) and enjoy the awesome sweetness!

Campfire Bacon

And while you got your roasting prongs out…. Did I mention you can use them to cook bacon over the campfire? I mean, you’re going to need your protein for a day full of camping activities. And who doesn’t love bacon?

Basically you take the strips of bacon and weave them onto a roasting prong or skewer. Prepare a fire with two logs on both sides of the flames. Then you set the skewer on the logs so that the bacon cooks over the flames. Rotate the skewer about every 5 minutes for even cooking and browning.

Ziploc Bag Omelet

This next camping cuisine is really simple to make. And the best part is; cleaning up is a breeze. And you can prep all the ingredients at home before your camping trip and that way you’ll have everything ready to go come breakfast time.

Ingredients

  • Ziploc Freezer Bag
  • 2 Eggs
  • Shredded Cheese, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Onions, etc.

Here’s a video that I found that shows just how quick and easy it is to make this.

Another benefit of using this method is how easy it is for everyone to get their omelet just how they want it. And I also like how you can make about 8 of them at a time as long as you are using a big enough pot.

Maple Peanut Butter French Toast

My Mother-in-law whipped this up for us the last time we went camping and it was so good! I’ll put peanut butter on just about anything. I’ve always put it on my pancakes ever since I was a youngin’ but never on my french toast until now.

Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Milk
  • Bread
  • Maple Syrup
  • Peanut Butter
  • Cinnamon

Check out this short video to see how easy it is to make!

Of course this is something that you can cook up at home but for some reason, it’s even more delicious when camping and enjoying the fresh air. I would recommend serving it up with some bacon or sausage and a cup of coffee.

Conclusion

These are just a few ideas for you to try the next time you go camping. If you would like some more camping tips and tricks, check out another one of my posts here.

Halloween Campsite Decorating Ideas – 10 Spooky Decorating Ideas

Halloween Campsite Decorating Ideas

Two things that I love are Halloween and camping. Mix them both together and you’re in for a spooktacular night! Some of my funnest memories as a kid are camping with friends and family around Halloween time. Growing up, my Grandparents owned some land out in the woods and Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground was right across the street. We would walk over there and go tric-or-treating and I can remember all of the awesome campsite decorating ideas.

And just recently my wife and I camped at The Bogalusa Blues Fest and of course she decorated the camper accordingly. See picture above of Skully on banjo and Rufus on harmonica. They’re a hit every year at The Blues Fest. But anyway, with Halloween right around the corner and (finger’s crossed) some cooler weather rolling in, I’m sure some of you will be doing some camping soon. So what better time than now to share some cool ideas for decorating your campsite.

Here are 10 ways to turn your campsite into a Halloween adventure for all ages. And you can find all of these decorations on Amazon.com.

Thank you.

Now let’s get to it!


1. 8-Pack Solar Torch Lights With Flickering Flame

 

Not only will these make excellent Halloween decorations for your campsite, you could use them as pathway lights for your home year round. The LED flickering flame is so cool! And they’re waterproof too. 

The torch lights have a solar panel that takes in the sunlight during the daytime and turns it into electricity. And at dusk they turn on automatically. So you won’t have to deal with running extension cords or having to buy huge packs of AA or AAA batteries.

The solar panel and the lampshade are made with a high level waterproof IP65 material that can withstand  rain and even snow and keep the torch working just fine.

I think these solar torch lights are awesome and I’m not the only one. There’s a ton of customer reviews on Amazon and most of them are more than pleased with them. 

Head on over to Amazon and check them out!

 

2. Battery Operated LED String Lights

These string lights will really look cool hung around the camper awning or in the trees nearby. You can really put them anywhere because each string runs on 3 AA batteries (not included). I just think they would really add a spooky atmosphere around the campsite; all glowing in the dark woods.

The LED lights themselves are waterproof but the battery packs will need to be protected from the rain. Each string measures 8.2 ft in length and has 20 mini bulbs that can either flash or stay on.

And each string of lights is different: Orange Jack O’Lanterns, Purple Bats, and White Ghosts. I personally like the Purple Bats the best.

You can check them out Here for more information and customer reviews.

 

3. Welcome To Our Campsite Banner

This could be a nice addition to your decorations around the campsite. The sign is made of 250g cardstock which makes it durable and reusable. Each card size is 18 x 22 cm / 7 x 8.6 inch.

It comes pre-strung too so you don’t have to assemble it or anything. You just have to find a good spot and hang it on up. 

Put it somewhere as a camping photo prop or just a nice warm welcome for friends and family.

Find out more information Here.

 

4. Witches With Hitches Halloween T-Shirt


I know, it’s not technically a decoration. But just think of all the candy you will get tric-or-treating in this awesome shirt! Comes in 3 colors: Black, Asphalt, and Dark Heather.

The shirt is lightweight, classic fit with double-needle sleeve and bottom hem. Available for both men and women.

You can find it Here.

 

5. Rustic Old Fashioned Light Up Lantern


Give your campsite a vintage feel with this old rugged looking lantern. I don’t think it will serve well as just a light source, but for decorating it will be perfect. It runs on AA batteries and has a LED light bulb in it.

The lantern stands 11″ (13.5″ hanging) and it is sturdy but lightweight with a metal frame and glass globe. I’ll bet it will make a great theater prop or costume accessory as well.

You can find more info Here.

 

6. LED Rope Light


Place these around the perimeter of the campsite for a great look at night and also as a precaution for people to watch there step. Connect up to three strands together to create a 100 ft. rope light. You can light up walkways or wrap them around tree trunks.

They’re perfectly safe for pets and kids and they’re cool to the touch. The solid tube light is weatherproof and will still work in rainy or snowy conditions. 

I like them because they’re flexible and easy to work with. You can easily bend them into any shape.

You can find them Here.

 

7. Extra Large 8ct Halloween Yard Signs

I know these are labeled “yard signs” but I just thought they would look great around the camper or tents also and not just in your front yard. 

Anyway, as you can see in the picture above the signs use vibrant colors and are kid friendly. And they are easy to display. You just have to insert two stakes into the sign and press it into the ground.

Each sign is made of corrugated plastic cardboard sheets and they are waterproof.

You can find out more details about these neat signs Here.

 

8. Zombie Face and Arms Lawn Stakes

Make it a ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ camp out with this zombie head and arms coming out of the ground. Head and arms are attached to plastic yard stakes that are put in the ground.

You could even put a solar spotlight on it and make a grave yard scene around it. 

Click Here for more details.

 

9. Halloween Vintage Camper Doormat


Add this awesome multi color doormat to your camper. It can be used as an indoor or outdoor mat and measure’s 18″ x 27″. The mat is rubber backed to keep it from sliding so you can put it on just about any surface. 

This mat is made by Caroline’s Treasures who still make everything by hand and one at a time and are located in Mobile, Al. 

Click Here to find out more. They have a bunch of other mats with different designs a sizes.

 

 

10. Halloween Ghost String Lights

Just like the string lights earlier in this post, these lights are battery powered and water proof as well. Except these bad boys come with a remote control! (with a range of about 5 feet) And they also have 8 different lighting modes: Flashing, twinkle, waves, sequential, slow glow, chasing, slow fade and steady on.

The string is 14.7 ft and it has 40 ghost lights on it.

You can find them Here on Amazon.
