I love to go camping and I also love to cook. So as I plan a camping trip the daily menu is very important to me. Plus we all need to eat and no wants freeze dried meals 3 times a day.
It doesn’t take long to get sick of oatmeal and cereal and crave a heartier meal. While camping you need all the energy you can get from your breakfast if you plan on hiking, swimming and being outdoors all day long. This Ham & Potato Skillet is one of the best breakfast camping recipes I have made and always goes over well with the family and other camping guests. Plus it is so super easy and does not take a lot of prep work at the campsite.
