How To Make Camping Burrito Bowls For Breakfast

If you want a hearty but quick morning meal, try throwing healthy ingredients into a bowl, get a fork and dig in!

Step 1. Heat the beans. Not many of our camping breakfast ideas start with a can of beans but this one does and it is not only because they are great for providing fiber and protein … they taste awesome too! You’ll dump a can of black beans into a pot to get them heating over a medium heat.

Step 2. Cube the avocado. Now, cube the avocado and toss it in a bit of lime juice so it doesn’t turn brown.

The avocado is so fresh and creamy … making a perfect topping to this breakfast dish.

Step 3. Cook the eggs. I like making scrambled eggs in a non-stick pan when I am cooking with my camp stove because you can cook them slowly over a low heat and they turn out velvety smooth. You are going to melt the butter first then add the eggs, salt and pepper.

Step 4. Add the cheese. You don’t want the eggs to cook through … just cook them till they are just about set and then add the cheese. As you are cooking the eggs you will be gently and continuously stirring them so they don’t get that rubbery texture.

Step 5. Build the bowls. Get your bowls ready for plating. Remove the beans from the liquid and divide them between the bowls. I like using a slotted spoon for draining the liquid. Now add the scrambled eggs, avocado, and salsa. In about 10 or 15 minutes … you’ll be eating! You gotta love easy camping meals when you are hungry and want food on the table in a hurry!

Step 6. Serve hot. These breakfast bowls have a wonderful Mexican flavor profile. You can serve them with toast but I like serving them with some fresh fruit on the side.

Pairings For Breakfast Burrito Bowls

In the summer I like making this yummy camping fruit salad that has a scrumptious honey mint syrup.

I like using black beans because of their color and texture. You can swap with any type you have on hand … kidney and pinto beans are great options.
