Ever heard of Dutch baby pancakes? They’re delicious crepe-like German pancakes! And yes, you can whip them up on your campfire trip.

All you need is to prepare the batter on hand and pan-fry the crepes in a cast-iron Dutch oven. It’s an easy-peasy, mess-free recipe.

Topped with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream, these golden brown babies are sinful and heavenly!

2. Campfire Cinnamon Rolls 

Cinnamon rolls that don’t require the oven? I’m listening.

These campfire-friendly cinnamon rolls are just as soft, ooey-gooey, and delicious as any.

But the best part is they’re easier to cook! 15 to 20 minutes on a grill or campfire, and they’re ready to be devoured.

The secret is easy. Just bring a box or two of Rhodes Anytime!® Cinnamon Rolls and a bunch of roasting sticks.

5. Camping Oatmeal Recipe with Dried Fruit 

If your morning schedule is jam-packed with activities, you’d better arm yourself with a hearty and nourishing breakfast. You can always rely on oatmeal for that.

Aside from the nutritional boost, oatmeal is an ideal camping breakfast because it’s portable and non-perishable. It’s super quick and easy to cook, as well! 

With just a bit of sugar and dried fruit, you can transform the boring dish into a sensational meal.

6. Cast-Iron Skillet Campfire Frittata

Is there a more colorful way to start the day than with scrambled eggs and cheese filled with tomatoes, basil, and shallots? I don’t think so!

This campfire frittata is an insanely easy breakfast that you can enjoy in no time.

You can cook it using a cast-iron skillet or a Dutch oven. Either way, it will turn out amazing.

7. Campfire Breakfast Burrito

Bring the fun of Taco Tuesdays at the campsite by making burritos for breakfast! 

These tortilla wraps are fully loaded with hash browns, ham, eggs, cheese, and chiles.

The flavors and textures are perfect together. And if these don’t fill you right up, I don’t know what will.

To make camp life easier, prepare the burritos in advance and wrap them in tin foil. Just warm them up over hot coals, and breakfast is ready.

8. Banana Bread Pancakes

Can’t decide between pancakes and banana bread for breakfast? Who says you need to choose?

This recipe combines the two beloved dishes to make one phenomenal breakfast.

All you’ll need is to add banana slices, walnuts, and brown sugar into your ordinary pancake batter and the transformation is complete.

Not only are they a snap to make, but they will also have the whole campsite smelling like heaven!

9. Fruit Cups 

If you’re looking for something light and delightful for breakfast, you can’t go wrong with fresh fruits.

I’m talking peaches, baby oranges, apples, and whatever in-season fruits you have on hand.

I know what you’re thinking – how do you keep peeled fruits from browning? It’s easy, all you’ll need is to soak them in lemonade!

Not only will it make your fruits stay fresh longer, but it will even enhance their flavor. 

10. Campfire Hash with Potatoes and Sausage 

Potatoes plus sausage equal satisfaction. The starchiness and fluffiness of the tots pair wonderfully with the smokiness of the meat!

Together, they create such a hearty and savory dish. They’re a match made in heaven!

This campfire hash also contains corn and chiles, which add not only flavor and texture, but bright colors as well. All in all, this dish gets a 12 out of 10!

11. Bacon, Egg, and Avocado Breakfast Sandwich 

Here’s another sandwich that’s guaranteed to blow your taste buds away.

Two pieces of crisp toast with bacon, egg, and a slice of avocado in between – my goodness, it’s like I died and went to sandwich heaven.

From the smokiness of the bacon to the richness of the egg to the nuttiness of the avocado, this sandwich is outrageously delicious!  

12. Bacon & Cheese Pull-Apart Loaf 

I can’t think of a more addictive tandem than bacon and cheese. Put them on bread and what do you get? Comfort food at its finest.

Carbs, protein, and fat equal food coma! But you know what? You deserve to indulge from time to time, so go ahead and enjoy.

13. Camping Breakfast Pizza with Bacon and Mushrooms 

Pizza for breakfast? Why the heck not?! 

It sounds like pure indulgence, but it’s not at all unhealthy.

The crust is a mixture of hash browns and eggs, and the toppings include bacon, mushrooms, cheese, and even more eggs.

So you see, it’s not really pizza, but it definitely looks like one. The kids will surely fall for it!

14. Johnny Apple Seed Oatmeal

Here’s another oatmeal recipe that will fill your bellies with joy and nutrition. 

Fresh apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice, and clove make this oatmeal bursting with fall flavors.

There’s also chia, flax, and hemp seeds in there for extra nourishment. 

So you see, there’s nothing bland or boring about this oatmeal recipe!

15. Cinnamon Monkey Bread Foil Packets

These monkey bread cinnamon rolls are just as good as homemade, but they’re 10 times easier to make.

All you’ll need are pre-made cinnamon rolls, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and some tin foil.

Not only are they extremely tasty, but they smell amazing, too. I’m just gonna say it – grilled cinnamon rolls are better than baked!

16. Campfire Scrambled Eggs  

Eggs are the quintessential breakfast dish. Loaded with proteins and vitamins, it’s a great way to kick start your day.

But why settle for basic scrambled eggs when you can amp them up with jalapenos, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and corn kernels? 

These scrambled eggs are not only soft and fluffy but are also loaded with flavor, texture, and color! It’s a feast for both the eyes and the palate.

Dessert for breakfast, anyone? Apple crisp is a cozy treat, perfect for warming you up on a cold morning. 

Tender apples and crisp granola flavored with brown sugar, cinnamon, and bourbon – this breakfast/dessert is a masterpiece!

Whether eaten on its own or with a scoop of ice cream on top, you can’t go wrong.

18. Cast-Iron Skillet Cinnamon Sugar Campfire Donuts 

Just the thought of eating donuts for breakfast on a camping trip makes me giddy.

These campfire donuts are outrageously soft and pillowy, it’s like biting into a cloud. As for the flavor?

Well, it’s topped with a stunning cinnamon and brown sugar combo, so yeah, I’d say it’s pretty epic. 

Here’s the best part: it’s insanely easy to make. So much so that you can enlist the kids to help out!

19. Campfire Skillet Breakfast  

If you want to ensure full bellies in the AM, make this campfire skillet breakfast.

This recipe makes a 10-inch skillet, which means it can satisfy your family’s huge appetite.

You can serve it as is, or pair it with rice and crispy fried bacon for an even more filling meal.

21. Granola and Yogurt Bowls

This last one is for all you sweet tooths out there! These granola and yogurt bowls are sweet, hearty, and oh so nutritious.
