These Campfire Breakfast Foil Packets Are:

  • Warm
  • Hearty
  • Healthy
  • Perfectly Spiced
  • High Protein

The brunch game is STRONG on our homestead!  There’s nothing better that a big mid-morning meal after sleeping in on the weekends- we usually have a big brunch with some freshly baked bread on Saturdays and Sundays.  For a fun change of pace, I decided to make these foil  packets with some extra veggies and eggs we had… and cook them in the oven. You don’t need a campfire to have a proper cowboy breakfast.

What Are In These Gluten Free Breakfast Foil Packs?

Egg Refrigeration Safety

I can’t stress enough to make sure your eggs have been properly refrigerated before cooking them. The FDA says eggs should be kept at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and in their original containers. No leaving them out overnight while camping… make sure they have been well refrigerated.  Keep food safety first in mind.  If you question the eggs, leave them out of this recipe and make the packets with just the vegetables and spices, no one wants to get sick camping.

These foil packets are a super easy way to get some veggies in first thing in the morning to give you a good base for the day.  Our weekends are usually full of wood chopping/stacking, beekeeping, and working out on our land… so we like to have a nice big breakfast to get us through the day!  These are good in the oven or on the grill.  

You can use any spices you want here, but I really love how Montreal Steak Spice tastes with the potatoes.  You could also improvise with other veggies you have on hand: zucchini, asparagus, or spinach would also be awesome additions.    

And foil packets are really great for easy cleanup – no pans, pots, or dishes there… just recycle the foil when you are done!  Less cleaning on the weekends sounds like a great plan to me 🙂
