Camp-Style Potatoes

Doug K


We’ve been enjoying this recipe for years and named it “Camp-Style Potatoes” because we first had it on a camping trip…many YEARS ago.

An easy-to-prepare breakfast dish for a crowd. As the late “Chef Tell” (Friedemann Paul Erhardt) advised his TV viewers:
“This is a recipe… not a formula”.

Measurements are approximate and ingredients may be added or subtracted based on your preference or availability. I've never made it exactly the same twice :)
