Dutch Oven Breakfast

November 9th, 2017

For one of our meals at Trap Pond this year I decided to try out this Dutch Oven Breakfast Recipe that I found on line @ Happy Money Saver, I tweaked it a bit but it needs a few more tweaks. I will put the tweaked recipe at the end of this post.


Ingredients

  • Half of a small onion diced finely
  • Ground Sausage - 2 small packages
  • 1 pkg. Frozen Shredded potatoes
  • One dozen eggs
  • 4 Cups shredded cheese blend (used three)
  • 2 cups of pre-cooked bacon crumble
  • 1 can biscuit dough or homemade biscuit mix (used 2 and it was too much bread)
  • salt and pepper to taste
For Coals
  • 12" DO - 14 on the top. 10 For the bottom should give you a temperature of 350 degrees.


Directions

  • While all the coals are heating up place the dutch oven over them cook the sausage until browned then add the onions.
  • Remove from heat and pour the package of hash browns over it.
  • Then crack the 12 eggs over the potato layer as evenly as possible. Add spices on top of eggs.
  • Sprinkle the cheese as the next layer.
  • 2 cups of Bacon Crumble for the next layer
  • Then place the biscuits evenly on top of the cheese.
  • Cover the dutch oven and then add coals on the top and bottom of dutch oven. Allow to cook for 45


  • First we need to build up an appetite






  • OK, now it is time to make breakfast.




















  • Yeah, they're hungry!







Next time I make this, it will go like this;

Ingredients
  • Half of a small onion diced finely
  • Half of a Green Pepper diced finely (2 guys at camp don't like green peppers)
  • Ground Sausage - 2 8oz. packages
  • 1 pkg. Pre-Cooked Tater Tots or Crowns
  • One dozen eggs
  • 4 Cups shredded cheese blend
  • 2 cups of pre-cooked bacon crumble
  • Bisquick, enough to cover the top (will need 1/2 cup of milk)
  • salt and pepper to taste
For Coals
  • 12" DO - 14 on the top. 10 For the bottom should give you a temperature of 350 degrees.
  • Wipe the DO down real good with crisco before adding ingredients.

Directions

  • While all the coals are heating up place the dutch oven over them cook the sausage until browned then add the onions and green peppers.
  • Remove from heat and pour the package of pre-cooked Tater Crowns/Tots on top
  • Then crack the 12 eggs over the potato layer as evenly as possible, break the yolks and spread around or beat lightly in a bowl then add. Add spices on top of eggs.
  • Sprinkle half the cheese as the next layer.
  • 2 cups of Bacon Crumble for the next layer.
  • The rest of the cheese for the next layer.
  • Then drop in dollops of the Bisquick on top of the cheese.
  • Cover the dutch oven and then add coals on the top and bottom of dutch oven. Allow to cook for 45
I used bacon crumble from Sams Club



To make it easier at camp
  • Cook the tater tots/crowns at home place in a Ziploc bag or container
  • Dice the onions and Peppers place in a Ziploc bag or container
  • Place the cheese in a Ziploc bag or container
  • Place the Bisquick in a Ziploc bag or container
  • If you use Hash Browns, I suggest you pre-cook them.


Bisquick Mixing Ratio
  • 1 1⁄2 cups Bisquick
  • 1⁄2 cup milk

SQWIB, I don't have a cast iron DO, but I'm going to adapt your recipe for a stainless one I can use in the kitchen oven. Will try it this weekend!
