Summer and camping. No two things seem to fit better! Whether it’s family backpacking trips, Boy Scout camp adventures, or simple overnight fishing trips, we can all agree that summertime is, well, camping time!
If there is anything I love more than camping, it would have to be campfire food! Whether it’s roasting marshmallows, baking up warm tin foil dinners, or even just grilling a thick steak over an open flame, there’s something about that smokey taste, combined with the outdoors, that makes everything right in the world. Prepare that food in a Dutch Oven or Cast Iron Skillet, and, well, you’ve got a meal that rivals even the finest four star tasting cuisine.
To do this, add egg crystals and water to a large bowl and whisk until completely combined.
Re-hydrate your ham, corn, onion, and bell peppers, by soaking them separately in bowls until soft, then draining any excess liquid.
Add corn, onions, bell peppers, ham, and TVP to eggs and mix evenly.
Prepare your skillet by melting butter over medium heat.
Add egg mixture and stir until scrambled eggs begin to form.
Once eggs begin to scramble, add bell peppers and onions, and continue mixing until eggs are completely cooked.
These eggs are exactly what you’re looking for in a campfire breakfast! The ham and bacon TVP infuse the eggs with a smokey, delicious taste. The bell peppers and onion give additional flavor, while the corn helps to give some sweetness, as well as make the meal full and hearty. What’s even better is that this meal cooks up in just minutes. You can have warm, soft, delicious scrambled eggs prepared and ready to go before your campers are even awake!
Summertime is camping time, and with eggs like this, why wouldn’t you want to head to the great outdoors?
