Bacon Breakfast Roll Campfire Recipe

Want to be so good at breakfast you never camp alone again? Then this recipe from our book “Food on Fire” will make you the Champion of Breakfasts. If you want to see an extended version with more fillings, see our video here: 

Recipe

Take half a pack of bacon and lay it down on parchment paper if you are baking in the oven, or foil if it’s going on the fire. Now take the remaining strips and weave them through the pieces on the foil. Go over and under the pieces so you get a perfect bacon weave. Now you can add fillings. In this video we use 4 scrambled eggs, salsa and cheese, but you can add just about anything. I’ve put in peppers, fried potatoes, avocado, onions and even chilies. Whatever catches your fancy goes in your breakfast roll! Once your fillings are in, fold your parchment paper or foil over to close the bacon breakfast roll. Tuck in the loose ends. Wrap in foil and bake for 15 minutes on each side on a campfire or place on a baking tray in the oven at 400F and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
