Tortoise's Camping Breakfast

Megan Stewart


The girls always want me to make this in camp. I have printed the original recipe, however, since then have taken to frying the sausage in my Dutch Oven in camp (mash with a potato masher to break up) and then omit the oil as I heat the hash browns with the sausage grease in the Dutch Oven.

2 lb
jimmy dean (or bob evans) sausage, do not use cheap sausage
2-4 bag(s)
refrigerated hash brown potatoes, do not use frozen
1 small
velveeta, or 1/2 large bar
oil if not cooking sausage in camp


1At Home- fry the sausage at home, leaving a little of the grease with it. Cool completely then put into a ziplock bag to take into camp.

In Camp- Start with heating the hash browns in oil in D.O. or pot. They take a while to brown. Then cook eggs in 2 pie plates over fire on top of a grate. Stir until completely cooked through. When the potatoes are almost completely browned, add the sausage with a little bit of the grease to prevent sticking and flavor the potatoes. Then add cut up pieces of velveeta and the cooked eggs and heat through.
