Aside from tents and bonfires, the food is what makes a camping trip memorable. These camping breakfast ideas, in particular, will make your trip that much more memorable.
There’s something truly special about gathering around a campfire with family and friends. But without the food, the experience isn’t as memorable!
You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for the best camping breakfast ideas to make for your upcoming trip.
CAMPING BREAKFAST IDEAS FOR LARGE GROUPS
One-pot meals are ideal for feeding a large group of people. This recipe begins with ham and eggs and then adds potatoes, cheese, and green onions to create a truly satisfying and tasty meal.
Pancakes are ideal for feeding a large group because they are simple to prepare, quick to cook, can be prepared in an assembly line format and kept warm until serving… and… they are inexpensive!
Setting up an ingredient bar and allowing each camper to make their own meal is one of my favorite ways to feed large groups. Making one-of-a-kind creations is a lot of fun. Because these muffin tin eggs are more of a process than a recipe, you can easily adapt them to whatever size crowd you’re serving.
This hearty and filling Dutch oven breakfast casserole is a family favorite. After trying other recipes and being disappointed because they were too dry or too potato-heavy, I developed my own version that is cheesier, meatier, and moisture, with a slightly spicy hint from southwestern-inspired ingredients.

EASY CAMPING BREAKFAST FOR FAMILY
Have you ever heard of Dutch baby pancakes? They’re crepe-like German pancakes that taste like crepes! And, yes, you can make them over a campfire. All you need to do is make the batter ahead of time and cook the crepes in a cast-iron Dutch oven. It’s a no-fail, no-mess recipe.
Cinnamon rolls that don’t need to be baked? I’m paying attention. These cinnamon rolls are just as soft, ooey-gooey, and delicious as any other. But the best part is that they’re easier to prepare! They’re ready to eat after 15 to 20 minutes on a grill or campfire.
Do you want the ultimate champions’ breakfast? These pulled pork English muffin sandwiches are a great way to start the day! They’re filling, tasty, and simple to make. English muffins, BBQ pulled pork, fried eggs, and a slice of cheddar cheese are all you’ll need. Assemble the ingredients, then wrap them in foil and grill for a few minutes. Breakfast has been served. There’s no muss, no fuss!
Breakfast is a toss-up between pancakes and banana bread. Who says you have to make a decision? This recipe combines two beloved dishes to create one incredible breakfast. All you have to do is mix banana slices, walnuts, and brown sugar into your regular pancake batter to complete the transformation.
You can’t go wrong with fresh fruits for breakfast if you want something light and delicious. I’m referring to peaches, baby oranges, apples, and any other in-season fruits you have on hand. I know what you’re thinking: how do you keep peeled fruits from turning brown? It’s simple; all you need to do is soak them in lemonade!
Satisfaction is equal parts potatoes and sausage. The starchiness and fluffiness of the tots complement the smokiness of the meat perfectly! They make such a hearty and savory dish when combined. They are a perfect match!

My favorite Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich is stuffed with hummus and feta cheese, as well as fresh vegetables and sprouts. In this vegetarian sandwich recipe, you won’t miss the meat.
They’re a quick lunch or dinner, but they’re packed with savory cold cuts, creamy cheese, briny olive tapenade, tangy pickled peppers, and peppery greens, so you won’t get bored. They’re also fantastic for picnics and day trips!
CAMPING BREAKFAST IDEAS WITHOUT EGGS
Another oatmeal recipe to fill your belly with joy and nutrition. This oatmeal is bursting with fall flavors thanks to the addition of fresh apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice, and clove. Chia, flax, and hemp seeds are also included for extra nutrition.
Anyone up for dessert for breakfast? Apple crisp is a comforting treat that is ideal for warming you up on a cold morning. This breakfast/dessert is a work of art, with tender apples and crisp granola flavored with brown sugar, cinnamon, and bourbon.

This Caprese salad with cherry tomatoes is a delicious summer meal (or side dish). It’s light and refreshing, and it takes less than 10 minutes to make from start to finish!
One of the most common misconceptions about plant-based diets is that you have to eat boring green salads. Plant eaters, on the other hand, take veggie dishes to the next level! Our flavorful creamy vegan potato salad is one example of this.
Oatmeal is a great camping breakfast if you’re looking for something sweet but still healthy. Oats are high in antioxidants and extremely filling. If you know you’ll be hiking or walking for a long day, oats are a great breakfast to fuel you up for the day because you won’t need to eat again until lunch.
CAMPING BREAKFAST IDEAS ON GRILL
Camping was one of our favorite summer activities in the past. We don’t camp as much anymore, but we still enjoy this Grilled Breakfast Casserole recipe, which we used to make almost every time we went camping. It yields a large quantity and is popular with both children and adults.
See how simple it is to prepare Breakfast in a Bag over a campfire. Breakfast is on the way. Literally! I normally get up before Diana and the kids when we go camping. Breakfast and coffee are expected of me. Instead of cooking everything individually in a skillet or on the griddle, I just place everything in a paper bag and cook it over the fire or coals.
BBQ Breakfast Scrambler is an easy and tasty one-pan meal that can be made on the grill or as a campfire breakfast. Camping recipe, grill – just cook outside!
One of my favorite ideas is to cook bacon and eggs in a muffin tray. While you butter your muffin tray, smoke the bacon (or other meat of choice). Then, in each cup, wrap the meat and crack an egg.
A delicious recipe for folded Crispy Golden Hash Browns stacked with eggs, mushrooms, peppers, onion, cheese, and ham served over an outdoor camping grill! Think of it as an excellent breakfast casserole on steroids! This is an excellent breakfast for your next camping trip!
