A camping recipe from Julie Ann Craft. My three daughters named this recipe. It does not look too appetizing, but they love it.
 

Make Ahead Egg Bake
A camping recipe from Amy Mable. My husband loves this for breakfast. It is hearty and delicious, and you can add whatever you like in an omelet. I would not recommend cooking the cheese in the original baking - it hardens and is not really very good that way.

Mountain Man Breakfast
A camping recipe from Mountain Man. At the campground, prepare this recipe in a Dutch oven, then slice and serve it like quiche.

But it is better when prepared in your kitchen oven. Just mix it up and place in a large flat glass baking dish and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. It is really good and hardy, and you will absolutely get rave reviews.
