Just because you’re out in the woods, on the campground, or even in your backyard “roughing it” doesn’t mean you need to eat the same ho-hum meals. Starting your day off right with a warm, hearty breakfast will help you hit the trails, enjoy time with family, and still have energy to spare. Breakfast foil packet recipes make it possible to eat well as a family for the most important meal of the day – even when you’re away from home. Pop packets on the grill or campfire, and you’ll have a delicious meal ready in no time!

Easy + Delicious Campfire Breakfast Foil Packet Recipes
CAMPFIRE FRENCH TOAST
Placing a whole loaf of bread in one foil packet instead of pan frying individual pieces greatly simplifies making French toast for the family. The addition of ripe strawberries adds fresh flavor and vibrant color to this satisfying meal.

HOT HAM + SWISS CROISSANTS
Savory ham and swiss on a buttery croissant – so fast and so delicious! Dijon mustard mixed with honey and brown sugar sets this simple sandwich apart.
INDIAN SPICED BAKED POTATOES + EGGS
Do you like Indian food? Bet you never thought curry powder and turmeric would be on the breakfast menu, but this dish of healthy baked potatoes and eggs and Indian spices brings traditional potatoes and eggs from ordinary to extraordinary. I also like the recommended serving suggestion of topping the meal with sriracha after cooking for those of us who enjoy some extra spice. This dish can also be made paleo friendly – just substitute the yellow potatoes for sweet potatoes.
From Cotter Crunch
These make-ahead breakfast burritos can make your next camping trip easier, but you can also adapt this recipe to streamline any busy morning – just pop in the microwave of a 350 degree oven until warm.

ORANGE BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
Just like the burritos above, these breakfast muffins can be prepared ahead of time, so you can use your camping trip to enjoy time with your family. Just put the muffin batter in empty orange peels, wrap in foil, and keep in the cooler until you’re ready to bake these by the fire.
From Apron Strings
Meat, veg, and eggs all in one simple dish – just add seasonings, cook on the campfire, and you’re good to go!

BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST BAKE
This recipe is like pancakes and French toast rolled into one! This is another dish that allows you to do most of the prep work at home.
HOT HAM + PINEAPPLE CAMPFIRE SANDWICHES
I have never thought of putting pineapple rings on a ham sandwich, but it makes perfect sense – this recipe is like a holiday ham dinner on a bun. So good!
CAMPFIRE S’MORES GRANOLA
Breakfast + dessert all rolled into one tasty, sweet concoction. Sure, it’s decadent, but you can treat yourself while on vacay with the family and rest assured you’re burning off those extra calories on the trails.
From The Big Man’s World
ORANGE CINNAMON ROLL
This recipe uses canned cinnamon rolls with icing, so the only prep work is hollowing out the oranges, which you can do at home or by the campfire. Super simple!
