Recipe Prep

Cooking Methods & Equipment

Get your fire going to make this as one of our easy campfire recipes. You want to cook over hot coals rather than flames and you’ll want to use cookware designed for campfire cooking, like a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven.

If you prefer propane or electric, this is the perfect meal to make as one of our camp stove recipes, you can also use a conventional stove or RV stove.


Recipe Steps

Step 1. Prepare your ingredients, heat source and equipment as directed.

Step 2. Melt the butter over medium heat.

Step 3. Add the hash brown potatoes and ham to the butter, cook until they are slightly browned. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pan. The nice thing about one pot camping meals is that you will continue to build the recipe in a single pan, making cooking and cleanup simple.

Step 4. Stir in eggs. You’ll want to gently stir the eggs to combine with the rest of the ingredients.

Step 5. Stir in cheese. When the eggs are almost set, add the cheese to the pan. Stir it to combine well with the hash brown mixture.

Step 6. Add green onions & serve. When the cheese is melted and eggs are fully cooked, top the mixture with green onions and serve hot.


What To Serve With This Recipe

A toasted English muffin is a nice pairing for campers who really want some type of bread to go along with their egg dishes.

If you like serving sweet alongside your savory morning meals, try red grapefruit or oranges cut in half or sliced into wedges for easy eating.


Scaling Servings

I love skillet meals that can easily scale up or down.

If you want to reduce the number of servings, this is a great option when making camping meals for two. Just be sure to use a smaller skillet to get a good texture.

Recipes with minimal prep and cook time make easy camping meals for large groups. You can simply scale this recipe up and cook in large batches then transfer the food into aluminum pans, cover with foil and place in warm area for hot holding until the food is served.
