Hello fellow Scouters,
I had a real positive response to my dutch oven dessert recipe, so I thought I’d share one more. Our Cub Scout den’s favorite breakfast was a breakfast one-pot casserole. A portion of it was prepared at home, so it was easy to make at a campout. It was so good we would double the recipe you see below and make two batches and cook it in two dutch ovens. We served this with my wife’s salsa (which is so, so good, and a closely-guarded secret) and we could empty out a dutch oven in no time. The boys and the adults liked this recipe!
Pre-cook 1lb bulk sausage and 1lb shredded hash browns at home.
Put cooked sausage and potatoes in the dutch oven first.
Next beat 18 eggs and mix w/ 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (if you don’t mix the cheese and the eggs it will burn).
Pour egg and cheese mix over sausage and potatoes and then top with can of refridgerator biscuits.
Coals are usually placed 4 on top and 4 on bottom of a 12″ dutch oven, but adjust as you need to keep from burning. Takes about an hour.
The biscuits are right at the top, so it’s easy to burn them if you’re not careful.
Since I won’t divulge my wife’s salsa recipe, you can use whatever salsa or hot sauce you like to spice it up. A good salsa really compliments this breakfast dish.
