Dutch Oven Mountain Man Breakfast
MOUNTAIN MAN BREAKFAST
Ingredients: (6 servings)
½ pound bacon (or pre-cooked sausage)
1- medium onion
1- 2-pound bag of hash brown potatoes
½ pound grated cheddar
1 dozen eggs
1 small jar salsa (optional)
The following requires 6-9 bottom coals and 12-15 top coals: Pre-heat Dutch oven. Slice bacon and onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the Dutch oven until onions are clear.
Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover and stir occasionally to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes).
Scramble the eggs in a separate container and pour the mixture over the hash browns.
Cover and cook until eggs start to set. (10-15 minutes).
Sprinkle grated cheese over egg mixture, cover and continue heating until eggs are completely set and cheese is melted.
Cover cheese/egg mixture with a small jar (1 cup) of SALSA. Cover and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Slice and serve like quiche.
(Real men don’t eat quiche but I sure get lots of requests to cook up the Mountain Man.)
Cooking times will vary with the weather and your state of awake but its almost impossible to mess up. I find it usually takes longer to cook than the recipe says.
