Camp Eggs Recipe

Camp Eggs
  • 5 to 8 slices of sliced bread (Texas toast-style is best)
  • 8 to 10 eggs - beaten
  • bacon drippings
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Slice bread into 1-inch to 2-inch cubes. Toast cubes well in large skillet, using bacon drippings to brown the toast. Add beaten eggs; salt and pepper to taste. Cook until set.

Our kids like to put syrup on this as a different French toast. My father and mother made this for us when we were children while camping. Daddy has since modified his recipe, now adding kippers, diced bell pepper, mushrooms, cheese, etc.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Alloramadai for this recipe.

Do I have to use bacon fat? I know it would add a lot of flavor, but I'm trying to avoid fatty foods. Please let me know if I could use olive oil or margarine.

Hi. First time I've made one of the recipes from this site. This was one of those strange recipes that I thought was much better as leftovers. The first morning it was kind of blah. I had the rest for two more breakfasts and it was pretty good - definitely reminiscent of French Toast. I made it exactly as written (with 6 slices and 10 eggs). It was also the first time I'd ever used bacon drippings (which I'd been saving in a container in the fridge). The flavor was kind of mild though, so I can see how adding, e.g., maple syrup, would really jazz it up.

I had it on camp and it was so good a really yummy.
Add a little bit more pepper than salt.

I loved the bread in the eggs. Instead of bacon drippings I used 1TBS of margarine.
