Camper’s Breakfast Hash

When we go camping with family and friends, I'm always asked to make this hearty breakfast. This camping breakfast is a favorite at home, too. —Linda Krivanek, Oak Creek, Wisconsin

    This is my go to breakfast recipe. I make this with the Home-style Sausage Gravy and Biscuits recipe. This is great to make breakfast burritos with.

    This could really use some more flavor. Next time I will be adding some garlic or seasoned salt to it. Very bland even with the peppers and onions.

    This is one of my favorite breakfast for dinner meals. It is hearty and filling. I make this several times a year and wouldn't change a thing about this delicious recipe!

    This was so delicious and such a quick and wasy recipe. We are the type of family to have breakfast for dinner and this meal was definitely filling enought to be able to have it for dinner. Even our picky eater loved it!

    I make this recipe a lot at our house! I use smoked sausage or kielbasas, if there are some leftover corn or green beans from a previous meal I toss them in too! This is a very versatile recipe. Skip C.

    I prepared this dish this morning and declared it a winner. I halved the recipe for my husband and myself. I made a few substitutions such as using 3 eggs and egg beaters equivalent to 3 eggs, turkey sausage links, and 2% sharp Cheddar cheese. It tasted delicious and no one would be the wiser with the low fat ingredients. We will definitely have this again.

    i needed to 1/2 the recipe and even over a very hot fire (yes i was actually camping and over an actual wood campfire) could not get it to not be mushy. i was using a large cast iron dutch oven.
