5 Great Breakfast Ideas for RV Living

 

The standard bacon and egg camp breakfast can only take you so far.

 

Don’t get us wrong, we love this classic take on the first meal of the day. It’s high in protein and so very tasty. But when it comes to breakfast, we don’t like to be a one-trick pony, and we’re guessing you don’t either.

 

So here are a few tasty treats to start your morning. These are easy to make in your RV or over an open flame in the great outdoors.

 

Corned Beef Hash w/Eggs – The Ultimate Starter Meal

Ingredients:

  • 1 can corned beef
  • 1 can whole white potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Ketchup and/or Tabasco sauce (optional)

 

Cut potatoes into ¼ inch chunks, then place them in a 12-inch non-stick frying pan. Dump in the can of corned beef, break it up with a spoon and mix in with the potatoes. Cover and heat, stirring frequently. When the hash is cooked through, make four “wells” (circular indentations) in the hash. Crack an egg into each of the wells. Cover and cook eggs as preferred. Serve with ketchup, hot sauce, or your preferred condiment.

 

No Muss No Fuss Pancakes

Nothing beats a hearty stack of fresh pancakes. Here is probably the easiest recipe in existence.

 

Ingredients:

  • Pancake Mix
  • Egg
  • Milk or water (use milk for a richer flavor)
  • Jam or fresh fruit (heck, also get a can of whipping cream!)

 

Using a large zip-lock baggie, place all ingredients (adding fruit or jam at the end) into the bag. Squeeze out the air, seal the baggie tightly, then knead gently until ingredients are mixed. Pour onto griddle. When pancakes have cooked to your liking (soft or crispy), set aside to cool for a minute, then enjoy with your favorite toppings.

 

Dutch Oven Monkey Bread

This is a versatile sweet treat to start your day, as you can add in things like apples, raisins, and/or almonds to add that extra zing.

 

Take a package of pre-made dough balls. Cut each into 4 pieces and set aside. Place your dutch oven over some coals, then melt ½ stick of butter at the bottom. Create a cinnamon-sugar mixture in a bag and drop each dough ball in the mixture to coat.

 

Add the dough to the dutch oven then add your apples, raisins, or whatever you want. Stir until it’s coated in the butter, sprinkle ½ cup of brown sugar on top, then let cook for 30-35 minutes. Voila!

 

Camp Breakfast Parfaits

For a much healthier breakfast option, these breakfast parfaits are both light on the stomach and delicious to the palette. All you need is yogurt, fresh fruit, granola (here’s a great homemade granola recipe), and a set of mason jars. Add in some chia seeds and/or nuts for added texture.

 

Scoop alternating layers of yogurt, berries, and granola, then top with the seeds and/or nuts. Serve immediately, or seal and refrigerate. These are also easy to whip up quickly and save for a snack any time of day.

 

French Toast Skewers

Slice some thick-cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Dip them in a mixture of eggs, milk, and cinnamon, then lightly fry them in a pan with some butter. Once they’re golden brown, dip them in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and set aside.

 

Get out your camp skewers and carefully slide them on. Alternate each cube with a chunk of fruit (like bananas or strawberries). Then drizzle the skewer with maple syrup and/or dust with a bit of powdered sugar. Put them over an open flame for a few seconds for a bit of char (if you prefer!).
