Breakfast-Burritos

This recipe will feed 4, but if you are planning on a busy day of hiking you might want to double up the recipe or share between 2.

Ingredients

4 tortillas (you can also use pita bread)
6 large closed cup mushrooms
4-8 rashers of smoked bacon
2-3 Free-range eggs
1 medium-large sized onion
Salt & Pepper
Ketchup/brown sauce

Method

You’ll want to start by chopping your ingredients, so dice the onion , slice the mushrooms and chop the bacon up into bite-size pieces. Pop some oil into the pan and heat. Start by gently frying the onions, then once translucent add the bacon. Just before the bacon starts to brown, add the mushrooms. Stir frequently, and wait a few minutes until the mushrooms are cooked and the water from them has evaporated.

You might need to add a little more oil at this stage. Break your free-range eggs straight into the pan, then mix into the bacon, mushrooms, and onion. Keep them frying on moderate to high heat until the egg is cooked. Season in the pan, with a generous amount of black pepper and a pinch of salt. Split the contents of the pan between 4 tortillas or pitta bread, adding ketchup or brown sauce as desired, then enjoy.

Lunch-Mermaid Omelette

Omelettes are the ultimate in fast food. They’re quick, easy, tasty and full of eggy goodness. Best of all, you can plonk whatever you like in them, which makes them ideal for using up leftovers as well as allowing an easy variation in ingredients.

Serves 1

Ingredients

2 eggs 50g of smoked salmon
50g of smoked salmon
A handful of strawberries
A tbsp of chopped fresh parsley or basil
Salt and pepper
A splash of olive oil

Method

This recipe can be cooked over a standard camp stove or a campfire.
1. Crack the eggs into a large mug or bowl and whisk it up with a fork. Slice the salmon, quarter the strawberries and add them to the egg mix. Add the parsley or basil, a good grind of salt and pepper and give everything a stir.
2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and, once it’s nice and hot, pour in the mixture. Use your fork to make sure the strawberries and salmon are spread evenly around the pan and tilt the pan to make sure the mixture covers the whole surface.
3. Now let it solidify. Wait until the omelette loosens from the bottom, then fold in half. Give it another few seconds of heat so that the halves cook together and serve. Eat piping hot with a good stick of baguette.

1/2lb mozzarella cheese
1/2lb pepperoni
1 aluminium pie tin

4. Place 4 pebbles or wads of aluminium foil in a dutch oven to raise pie tin off the bottom.

Dessert-Campfire Cakes

Serves 2

Chocolate Orange Campfire Cakes are fun, easy to make, and taste delicious! Get the kids involved with this great little recipe. Though, it might get a little messy.

Ingredients

Oranges. You’ll need one orange per cake
Instant cake mix. Look for ones where you just have to add water. We used a chocolate fudge cake mix, which worked well.

Method

1. First, you need to prepare each orange by slicing off the top at about 1/4 of the way down.
2. Hollow out the orange by removing the contents with a spoon.
3. Make the cake mix by following the instructions on the cake mix packet.
4. Then the messy part! Filling each orange with the cake mix and remember to put the top back on.
5. Carefully wrap the oranges in foil and cook on the campfire.
6. The cooking time depends on the temperature of your campfire and where you place them in your campfire. Probably a good idea to check them every 10 minutes.
It’s then time to sit around the campfire and enjoy.
