Camping Breakfast question

Ok, nothing beats the smell of bacon and eggs hanging over the campground in the morning.

But since we often head out for 6 weeks on the road, I have to confess ... Pam doesn't let me eat bacon and eggs every morning ... something about my health ... but honestly, I think it's just too much of a mess to clean up afterwards.

So, most of the time, for breakfast, I eat a bowl of cereal (high fiber, of course) and a glass of orange juice or a piece of fruit. Pam drinks coffee. I drink tea.

I have to admit ... I have some really fond memories of pouring ice cold milk over my cereal in the early morning mist, listening to the sounds of the campground awakening.

Breakfast, as we all know, is the most important meal.

So what do y'all do for breakfast on the road?

Skip it? Keep it simple? Bring on the bacon?

Do you go out for breakfast?

We do most of our camping, dry camping, in state, provincial, national parks and forests.

But I have noticed that some commercial campgrounds offer pancake breakfasts.

We've never taken advantage of those. Have you?

Long ago, when we first started, I told Pam that just because we had a trailer, didn't mean we wouldn't go out to eat.

And we do go out to eat.

But usually not breakfast.

As I said, it's usually a bowl of cereal and a glass of juice.

Simple ... easy ... kind of like our camping style.

Bacon and Eggs sometimes Bangers and Pancakes. I like my milk also.

Pancakes (cooked more than anyone else would like them) and Barvarian Bratwurst on the Bar-B-Que. Oh ya - Beer and Clamato Juice! (hey -this is camping) :)

Breakfast

Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper. But camping I only allow myself the deluxe breakfast once every 3 or 4 days (eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast and coffee). The "off" days consist of a warmed, not toasted, bagel, buttered and coffee.

Somewhere in my travels, I bought a loaf of bread made out of english muffin mix. English toast? Nirvana! I've never found it again and I don't remember where I got it.

Perhaps a function of being single, I just can't enjoy breakfast without something to read. Not required for lunch or dinner, but breakfast without reading material just doesn't start the day off right.

Man, don't you just hate that? When you're there, you think you'll never forget, but years later....well, all I can tell you, it has nothing to do with being vintage, only the volume of information stored in the hardrive. ;) That was happening to me even before I became vintage! Guess that's why I don't worry about it now....just get frustrated!

If you mean more well done, then you would have to fight me for them!

That's what I meant. The good thing about making pancakes on anything other than a regular stove (while camping), is there is a good chance they will get slightly crispy - or as others would say burnt. mm-mm-mm my favorite! :o

WOW! I thought I was the only one that liked them that way.

Traveling without a trailer requires frequent, challenging encounters with restaurant food. Order a waffle VERY Brown, extra, extra crispy and one of two things happen. They either ignore you and you could roll that sucker up like a paper or the waitress comes out appolgizing because she thinks the cook went overboard and burnt it. Yep, she's getting ready to throw it back at him. Thing is that is usually still undercooked and soggy in the middle.

Prefer flapjacks over pancakes for the reason you said.

Glad to know there is more than just me that understands what 'cooking them well done' means. ;)

Flapjacks

:wave Suz:
That's the first time I've heard that word used since my grandfather. When I spent the weekends, which were very frequent, he always fixed flapjacks. I still don't know if they are pancakes or what. Is the recipe different? Inquiry minds would like to know!
Another reason for going there was, he always gave me a quarter and said "get us each a coke and cho cho bar", then still had a nickel left. Am I dating myself or what?:red :chased

Flapjacks

My Swedish grandfather was the same - flapjacks are pancakes to me.
