I love making frittatas for breakfast camp meals! They are easy to whip up and every happy camper gets to eat together (rather than making eggs to order for each individual.) You can totally change the flavor profile of your frittata too by swapping out a few ingredients. This particular camp recipe is meatless so I serve it with a side of bacon or sausage to satisfy the meat-lover campers in my clan. (I do have a few that think if meat is not part of my camp meal, it’s just a snack…LOL). Serves 4-6, here’s how you make it. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

Dutch Oven Tomato and Avocado Frittata Pairings

Camp cooking tip: You can use whatever size Dutch oven you’d like to make this delicious Dutch Oven Tomato and Avocado Frittata, just remember the smaller the oven the thicker the frittata and vice versa.

I like using a 10 inch oven for this recipe but a 12 inch oven will work too … you’ll just have a wider frittata that is not as thick. Adjust the number of coals to get the desired heat for the size of oven you are using.

PS. If you don’t have your own, my basil butter recipe is easy and freezable so you can make it way in advance at home and freeze it so it is ready to use on any camp trip.  If you don’t have basil butter, you can use regular butter but it won’t have quite as much flavor.
