Camping Breakfast Burrito

We just got back from a lovely camping trip with a large group of friends.  It is so much fun to plan trips with friends!  We set up a communal style campsite where we all ate together and got to hang out.  And all of our kids… they had so much fun!  It was wonderful.
Each of the families were delegated a meal that they were responsible for cooking during our stay.  I LOVED this!  Only having to cook once?!?!  Awesome!  We made breakfast Saturday morning for 28 people {mostly kids}.  And these Camping Breakfast Burritos were just the perfect thing!
Here is what I did…

Camping Breakfast Burrito (1)

I do 90% of my camping meal preparation at home and this was no exception.  I began by frying a package of ground, hot italian sausage in a large skillet.  I added a medium diced onion, a diced green pepper and 2 tsp of minced garlic.  I cooked the mixture until the onion was opaque and the meat was well done.

Then I scrambled a dozen eggs.  I added about 2 Tbsp of milk to the raw egg, I find that it makes the eggs fluffier.  Salt and pepper was added to taste.

I combined the egg and meat mixture.  Then I added 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and mixed until it was melted into the still warm sausage and eggs.

Finally I spooned about 1/2 cup of the sausage and egg mixture into the center of a large flour tortilla and rolled it up.

 I wrapped each tortilla in Saran Wrap so that they wouldn’t stick to each other.

 Then I placed them into large Ziploc freezer bags and into the freezer.  This recipe made about 12 camping breakfast burritos so I had to double it {and add more eggs} for our party of 28 people.

We packed these in a cooler and brought them out Saturday morning to simply heat up and serve with hash browns.  They are really delicious and a great way to have a filling breakfast without too much mess while camping.

    Yum!! I would love to do this too for our big group camping trip. We have been given “breakfast” duty. I’m nervous about how to cook/reheat them. We will have two camping stoves (no oven). Many thanks for tips!!

    This is a fantastic recipe! We went camping this past weekend with 5 couples. I made these ahead of time as directed. To warm, we simply wrapped each burrito in heavy foil and put them on the grate over our campfire. They warmed in about 5-7 minutes and were delicious! There was no oozing of liquids, or soggy tortillas! In fact, because they were loosely wrapped, a few edges were a bit crisp, which added to the flavor. I served them with salsa. Thanks so much for what will definitely become a camping tradition!

    I love this idea, and do it for home quite often, but for camping, I like to wrap in tin foil, instead of saran wrap, then you can put them directly on the coals or grill!
