Dutch Oven Mountain Man Breakfast Recipe
Sausage, eggs, and hash brown potatoes cook over a camp fire in a Dutch oven in this breakfast large enough to feed several mountain men.
This is my own recipe, and of course, I think it's fabulous! When I cook in my Dutch ovens, I use CHARCOAL and wrote the instructions for using CHARCOAL. 6-9 coals underneath and 12 to 18 on top will give you approximately 350 degrees in your Dutch oven. Also, as any seasoned Dutch oven cook will tell you, you need to monitor your coals and add more as they burn away to maintain the proper temperature. Hope that helps!
I've used this recipe twice while camping. The first attempt was done as suggested and seemed a bit dry, so the second attempt I mixed the cheese in with the eggs then folded it into the potatoes and finished it off with some sliced american cheese on top. Seemed more moist and better overall. Either way it's a great recipe and we found it to feed 6 easily with a little leftover.
Great recipe allows for lots of variety Kick it up with some good quality chorizo in place of sausage. Also cube up about 3-4 oz of cream cheese in place of some of the cheddar. Always a hit for my family and friends camping or on back deck. Dynamite!
Ok made 2 of these for my son and 12 frat bros! Made one with Sausage as written...was ok...needs hot or seasoned sausage. Mild sausage gets lost in the mix. Made another one with bacon (chopped the cooked) and they finished it off. It was definitely the better of the 2. I was at home so baked them in 13x9 pans in 350 oven for about 40 mins.
I made this in a 9+13 pan and it was great! Made a ton of leftovers which is what I wanted. Great recipe!
