Mountain Man Breakfast

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


A camping recipe from Mountain Man. At the campground, prepare this recipe in a Dutch oven, then slice and serve it like quiche. But it is better when prepared in your kitchen oven. Just mix it up and place in a large flat glass baking dish and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. I fixed this revised recipe for a church brunch and had phone calls for a week from people to get the recipe. It is really good and hardy, and you will absolutely get rave reviews.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 1/2 pound sage sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 2-pound bag hash brown potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 pound extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 dozen eggs


Pre-heat Dutch oven, 6-9 bottom coals and 12-15 top coals. 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 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. Slice and serve.


You can scramble and cook the eggs separately and mix all ingredients together and put into a Dutch oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. It is not a quiche, but more like a casserole.

Servings: A bunch

Aaaamazing!!!, Member Snackbar

We made this recipe on our annual group camping trip at Sequoia Nat'l Park last year and it's a beast! So delicious and perfect for hungry, exhausted campers who need all those calories for all the hiking/climbing/swimming and overall energy used. I had to find the recipe again for our Labor Day trip this year and plan on making it a staple in our recipes each year. Highly recommended!
