As the warmer weather is settling in, my socks are gone and I’m planning our summer activities. This means I’m booking camping sites and getting EXCITED!! Some of our fondest family memories take place while we’re camping. We get away from it all and take time to bond with one another over fishing, hiking and campfire food.
Being out there in the fresh air certainly builds up an appetite and if there’s one thing we insist upon while camping, it’s good food. We don’t hold back, we cook as well as we do at home if not better. Today I’m sharing one of our family’s favourite breakfast recipes for camping.
Bacon Wrapped Omelette – a muffin pan recipe
One of the most important meals we plan for are breakfasts. This is what fuels us for our daily activities and starts our days well. The secret to a delicious, nutritious breakfast while camping is preparation. Generally speaking, I prep most of our meals in advance and have wee baggies of ingredients ready for each one.
For this recipe I cut up some yellow peppers, chopped baby spinach, red peppers, mushrooms, spinach and has Burnbrae Farms Egg Creations original on hand. If you wanted to, you could freeze the Egg Creations and use it to keep your cooler foods cold on the way to your campsite! They thaw out just fine.
Just a 1/4 cup is equal to one shelled egg and the carton makes it much easier to transport.
Begin by heating your BBQ to 350 degrees F. Then spray the bottom of your muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray (or coat with butter/oil). Line each muffin cup with a piece of bacon…YUM. Put your omlette ingredients into each cup.
Add Egg Creations into each muffin cup, fill about 3/4 full.
Pop it into the BBQ for 20 minutes or until the egg has set. Run a knife around the sides of each cup and lift out with a spoon. That’s it!
Honestly, this just couldn’t be easier. Each person can choose their own ingredients and it’s always a breeze! If you’d like your bacon crispy, rim each muffin cup with bacon and place the pan into the oven for 7 mins or until the bacon is not-quite crispy. Then add the rest of the ingredients and cook as outlined above.
If you’d like to cook it on the fire, go for it! Just make sure the fire isn’t directly on the bottom of the muffin pan, cover it with tin foil and keep an eye on it as it cooks.
