Camp Breakfast

What I like about this recipe is that if you go on a camping trip all you have to do to change up breakfast every morning is to change the sausage from regular, Italian, turkey, chopped or ground ham or chorizo and change the cheese from Cheddar, to Provolone, Jack, Swiss or Pepper Jack and you have 5 different one skillet breakfasts and when you are out camping and with several people this is an easy way to go. There is nothing wrong with cooking this at home either! Usually the potatoes we use for this recipe are ones we wrap in foil the night before that we let bake in the rocks of the camp fire. We used to have a US Marine issued cast iron frying that was about 24 inches or bigger. It would hold enough sausage and potatoes for the whole camp.

1 1/2 pounds sausage, any kind

6 to 8 potatoes, diced, cooked or raw

1 cup onions, diced

1/2 cup green peppers, diced

6 to 12 eggs

Salt & Pepper

Tabasco or other hot sauce

½ pound grated cheese, any kind

Brown the sausage in a large pan for about 10 minutes and add the onions and peppers. Add the potatoes about halfway through cooking the sausage if they are raw or when the sausage is done if they are cooked. Make indentations in the sausage and potatoes to hold the amount of eggs that you wish to cook and break the eggs onto them and sprinkle with salt, pepper and Tabasco if desired. Spread grated cheese over the top of all after the eggs are in the pan and when the eggs are done serve breakfast to your guests.
