Grilled Breakfast Casserole

Grilled Breakfast Casserole

Camping used to be one of our favourite summer activities. We don’t camp as much anymore but we still love this Grilled Breakfast Casserole recipe we made almost every time we camped. It makes a ton and it’s popular with kids and adults alike. Plus, it keeps growing boys full and happy!

Happy Pancake Day

Do you find yourself getting in a camping food rut? Our usual camping breakfast foods included pancakes, breakfast tacos, English muffins with eggs and cheese and cereal. We loved all of those but it got a bit tiresome to eat the same thing over and over. We needed something that was easy to make at the campsite, would keep us all from getting hangry before lunch and was delicious.

My whole family loves egg dishes so I wanted to find something where egg was the main component but it wasn’t just a plain omlette or fried egg. This grilled breakfast casserole fits the bill because it has a base of hash browns (or tater tots) and is filled with yummy veggies.

I add breakfast sausage to it as well. Then it is finished up with a bit of cheese.

shredded cheese

My favourite part about it is that you can make it fit what your family likes. Change up the veggies or add bacon instead of sausage. You can also use up leftovers from earlier in your camping trip…just make a bit more to throw in the casserole.

I’ve had lots of people ask me if this can be made on a Coleman stove or the campfire. I have never tried to do that and I’m not sure how well it would work. You need the top to cook along with the bottom.

If you were going to try it at the campfire, I would use a dutch oven with coals on top as well as on the bottom. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

Can this be cooked over a campfire?

I don't know. The top needs to cook too. The closed lid on the BBQ makes that happen. If you could make a "lid" of some kind. Maybe.

This looks great! Can this be prepared ahead, refrigerated, and then put on the grill? My concern is about the eggs. Thanks!
