Mountain Man Breakfast
Each time the mountain man breakfast is served at any scouting camp out, the boys have nothing but great things to say! This is a popular dish to prepare. Its super easy and takes about 55 minutes from start to finish.
• 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 onion and bacon 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.
