I have a recipe for "Mountain Man Breakfast" that was in a little booklet
with a new Lodge DO I recently bought. I've prepared it at a SMFundamentals
weekend, camporee, scout show etc.
Ingredients for ~6 people:
1/2 lb bacon (or pre-cooked sausage)
2lb bag of hash brown potatoes
1/2 pound of grated cheddar
1 doz eggs
small jar of salsa (optional)
The following requires 6-9 bottom coals and 12 -15 top coals:
Pre-heat 12" Dutch Oven
Slice bacon and onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the DO
until onions are clear.
Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover and stir occasionally
to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes)
Scramble the eggs in a seperate container and pour the mixture over the hash
browns. Cover and cook until eggs start to set.(10 - 15 minutes)
Sprinkle grated cheese over egg mixture, cover and continue heating until eggs
are completely set and cheese is melted.
Optional: cover cheese/egg mixture with a small jar (~ 1 cup) of SALSA. Cover
and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Slice and server like quiche. (Real men don't eat quiche but I sure get lots
of requests to cook up the Mountain Man.) Cooking times will vary with the
weather and your state of awake but its almost impossible to screw up.
