Camp Breakfast


This is a recipe my mother used to make when we were camping. It's warm, hearty, and a good way to start a cold day in the morning, camping or otherwise. Serve in a bowl with toast and coffee for a warming and hearty breakfast.

  • 6 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 white potatoes, cubed

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 4 eggs, beaten


  1. Cook and stir bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, discarding most of the grease.

  2. Return skillet to the stove and add olive oil; heat over medium heat. Add potatoes, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until browned and somewhat crispy, about 10 minutes.

  3. Mix onion into potatoes and cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Return bacon to the skillet; cook and stir until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Pour eggs over potato mixture; cook and stir until eggs are set, 5 to 6 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Butter can be used in place of the olive oil, if desired.
