It’s fun to get up early the first few days of camping and get a hearty breakfast going for the gang. They wake up to the smell of coffee brewing and bacon cooking over the campfire. Warm hotcakes await them as well as your famous cheesy-scrambled-sausage skillet. And after those first few days you the thrill may wear off, at least for you. We have some ideas for a few delicious no-cook breakfasts you can serve from your campsite. The family will love them and you’ll get more time to enjoy breakfast with them.
Yogurt Parfait Bar
Most everyone will enjoy this. You can start with a large container of yogurt and set out lots of other options to add to it. If you pick up a few bags of frozen fruit you will save yourself the peeling and chopping. Set out bowls of chopped peaches, strawberries, blueberries, and melon. Whatever your family likes best. You can have some granola on hand for crunch and maybe healthy nuts such as slivered almonds, chopped walnuts, or pecans.
Fruit and Dips
These dips you can make ahead and bring with you. Refer back to those bags of frozen fruit to make preparation quick and easy. There is a Cherry Fruit Dip that is made from cream cheese, marshmallow cream, and maraschino cherry juice. You could also bring two-ingredient Strawberry Fluff Dip. It takes only some marshmallow fluff and some strawberry cream cheese. Or try Brown Sugar Apple Dip which requires only cream cheese, brown sugar, and some vanilla.
Make-Ahead Refrigerator Oatmeal
You can make these the night before and pop them into the cooler overnight. By morning you will have a very tasty breakfast for everyone, no matter what time they decide to roll out of the tent.
Grab a package of nice, soft, flour tortillas and let the kids spread them with their choice of peanut butter, honey, banana, Nutella, fresh fruit, or cukes, tomato & mayo. They will fill them up and can be eaten on the run.
As you can see, there are plenty of options for an easy no-cook breakfast when you are camping.
