One thing to note, if you're tent camping as opposed to camper camping I don't know if you want to haul a big pot in order to cook the omelets in - they do need some room to move/boil around in, but they are delish!

Mountain Man Breakfast

2 lb breakfast meat - personal favorite is sausage
1 onion, diced
1 dozen eggs, beaten
2 bags frozen hash browns
1 big bag of cheese

Start a small bag of charcoal, get it ashed over - alternatively, get your campfire going to ashes. Please 12"dutch oven on the coals - leave a little air gap underneath. Let the dutch oven heat up. Brown the sausage and diced onion in hot dutch. Remove sausage and onion - leave grease. Start browning hash browns in grease. Once they get started, pour beaten eggs over top and top with cheese. Place lid on dutch. Put some coals on the top of the dutch. Let cook until eggs are done - try not to look too often - you'll lose your heat. Once the eggs are done, eat. This recipe can feed 10 people at 1 cup a piece.

Cobbler -

Bisquick and needed ingredients
2 cans pie filling

Line your dutch oven with foil - makes cleanup alot easier. Heat the dutch up as above. Mix the bisquick according to directions. Pour pie filling into dutch. Plop the bisquick on top. Put lid on Dutch. You can plop this on biscuit style or you can make a solid top like a more traditional cobbler. Let cook until done. Put some coals on the top.

Dump cake

1 cake mix that only needs water
1 can of pie filling
1 stick of butter

Line your dutch with foil. Heat as above. Dump the cake mix into the dutch. Put the stick of butter on top. Top with pie filling. Put on lid. Put some coals on top.

If you have some large coffee cans and some tuna cans - make buddy burners. Cut a small door into the open end of the coffee can. With a can open - pop some holes into the closed end of the coffee can. With the tuna can, roll some cardboard up in a coil and put into tuna can. Fill with wax. When you are ready to cook, light the cardboard in the tuna can, put the coffee can over top. THIS WILL GET VERY HOT. Once hot, put a little oil on the coffee can. You can cook eggs and bacon or even pancakes on this surface.

Bacon and Eggs in a paper bag

Line a brown paper bag with several strips of bacon. Put two eggs into the bag. Place the bag on a pan or skillet and cook. The bacon grease should keep the bag from burning. When the eggs and bacon are done, peel back the bag to reveal breakfast.

OKAY...explain this to me. You can boil stuff in a freezer bag and it won't melt?
I never knew that.

Yes. Just like your garden variety boil in bag frozen foods

Ember Cooking w/Recipies

How To
A cook who wants to foil toil in her outdoor kitchen could use the same product that's popular in home kitchens - aluminum foil - but she had better get the heavy weight that's usually designated for freezer use. The thinner type works fine for wrapping sandwiches or leftovers but doesn't provide enough protection against punctures or extreme heat.

When foil is wrapped as an airtight package around food, finishing off with a drugstore or sandwich fold, it becomes a small-scale pressure cooker. When placed in a bed of hot coals with some heat on top, diced vegetables and meat cook in 10 to 15 minutes in this package, and whole potatoes in 40 to 50 minutes. Be sure to allow some space for expansion in the package by not wrapping the raw food too tightly. If you want food to brown or to broil as in a skillet, leave the package open at the top (or fashion like a folded drinking cup with a flat bottem). This allows the steam to escape and makes it possible for you to watch the progress too.

Drug Store Fold
  1. Place foil on flat surface. Place food in center.
  2. Fold sides up to make a "tent". Hold top edges together and foldtogether.
  3. On each open end, bring togther and fold

And make sure that any foil you take is "heavy duty" - it will work much better on anything you wrap to put in or on the fire - and please don't set the woods on fire, but have a great time!
