Campfire Breakfast Casserole


Equipment Needed:

Small to medium fire with hot coals

Cast iron dutch oven

3 disposable aluminum loaf pans

Spatula, tongs, and cooking spoon

Oven mitts (for handling dutch oven)


1# ground breakfast sausage (bulk or patties)

2-3# raw potatoes, peeled or unpeeled

6 large eggs

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium bell pepper, chopped

1# grated cheddar cheese

Salt & pepper


Prepare the fire, leaving hot coals in which to set the dutch oven for cooking. Allow for room to access the dutch oven safely without danger of being burned.

Cook the ground sausage in the dutch oven over hot coals, stirring frequently to break up meat and prevent sticking & burning. When cooked, drain the sausage grease into an aluminum loaf pan (do this away from fire to prevent a flare up from dripping grease). Place the cooked sausage into another aluminum pan and set it aside. Pour about half of the grease back into the dutch oven and put the potatoes in it. Put the dutch oven back onto the fire to cook the potatoes. When the potatoes start to become tender, add the chopped onion and bell pepper to them and continue to cook until potatoes are done.

In the third aluminum pan, scramble the eggs. When the potatoes are tender, add the remaining sausage grease, eggs, sausage, and about half of the grated cheddar cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir the mixture well and cover. Let cook in the coals for 30-45 minutes. Open the dutch oven and sprinkle the rest of the grated cheese across the top. Cover again and let cook another 15 minutes.
