You can enjoy a hot meal of pancakes, eggs, bacon, and sausage when you’re camping and lots of people look forward to it. Some might prefer a nice breakfast of oatmeal, at least for a change, and this is an easy way of having it made the night before at the campsite.
There are two ways to do this. You can prepare breakfast for a large group, or individual breakfasts.
Breakfast For A Group
Using a dutch oven or any other pan that has a lid, place your oatmeal in the bottom of the container.
Layer 1/3 cup oatmeal per person
1/4 cup milk (almond milk is a great choice) per 1/3 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup greek yogurt per 1/3 cup oatmeal
Place your choice of flavorings on the next layer. Great options include:
Grated carrots with honey and brown sugar. Some like raisins in this as well.
Blueberries, blueberry jam, honey and lemon rind go well together.
Strawberries/oranges or cherries with cocoa powder and shaved chocolate are ideal together use honey to sweeten.
Place lid on your container and set in a safe place.
In the morning, this will be ready to serve hot or you can warm it gently over the campfire.
Have on hand some pint sized glass jars. Be sure that you have the lids.
In each jar place the following in this order:
1/3 cup oats
1/4 cup milk (almond milk is great)
1/4 cup greek yogurt
Flavors as mentioned above in each jar. This is ideal as each child can choose his or her favorite. No need to listen to complaints this way.
Place lids on jars and set either in the cooler or ice box or you can simply cover them and set them in a safe place.
In the morning, this can be eaten cold from the jar or you can place the jars in a pan of simmering water to warm them.
We want all your breakfasts at the campground to be wonderful. Try some oatmeal when you want something fresh to start your day. We hope it gets you off to a great start.
