Breakfast Potato Bowls! Idaho Sunrise Edition

You’ve seen those breakfast bowls in the freezer aisle at the grocery store. It’s got eggs, potatoes, cheese, and sometimes veggies. These may sound delicious, but there are a few things that can make these concoctions even better, like no or less packaging, fresh ingredients, and the ability to make them over the campfire. This recipe will deliver just that! Only tin foil to discard, all fresh ingredients, and it’s cooked in the fire! Enjoy these breakfast potato bowls, Idaho sunrise edition!


Baking potatoes
Breakfast meats of your choice
Veggies of your choice such as green pepper & onion, chopped


1. The first thing you need to do is bake the potatoes! Wrap them in aluminum foil and place them in the fire buried in hot coals. Let them cook for around 30 to 45 min. You want them to be just almost done! They will finish cooking during the next round of baking. Cook any raw breakfast meat you have while you wait for the potatoes to bake.

2. Lay the potato on its side and slice a “lid” off the top. Dig out enough potato to make room for the rest of the ingredients.

3. Place a pad of butter down in the bowl you just made, followed by cracking an egg in it, adding the cheese, meat, and veggies. If you have room left over you can even put some of the potato back in. Or just eat it while you wait for the rest to cook.

4. Carefully wrap the potato back up in the foil, being sure to know where the top is so your ingredients don’t spill out. Place back in the fire for around 15-20 minutes.

You will now have a delicious breakfast bowl that has been made with fresh ingredients. It’s also much less expensive to make them this way! The great thing is that you control the ingredients. So if you have one camper that loves onion and another that is completely against veggies, everyone can decide what goes into their potato. If you want to get adventurous, you can fry the potato that you scooped out in a skillet for a hash brown flavor! Make sure to pack the ketchup, hot sauce, salt, & pepper for toppings.

If you happen to run into poor weather or your campfire just isn’t cooperating, crank up the RV oven to 350° and cook according to the instructions above. Pair your personalized bowl with some homemade bannock, and for dessert try out this unique apple pie recipe.
