Breakfast

Peach Oatmeal Crisp

We like this recipe for its versatility. At home we enjoy it as a dessert, but when camping we like it as a hearty and filling breakfast. It matches up nice with a hot cup of coffee.

1 can Peaches or Peach Pie Filling
16 oz Oatmeal
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
Water

Mix all ingredients including juice from peaches. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let stand. The oatmeal needs time to soak up all the juice from the peaches. If the peach oatmeal mixture is too stiff, stir in a little water. Line a 10″ Dutch Oven with parchment paper (for easy clean up later). Pour mixture into Dutch Oven and smooth out evenly. Start with 20 charcoal briquettes. Use 5 on bottom and the remaining spaced evenly around the rim. Bake for about 45 minutes or until brown and bubbly on top.
Peach Oatmeal Crisp
If it is windy or cold add a few more briquettes as needed. If making this at home, bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Remember to rotate the oven and then the lid 90 degrees to even out the heat. This should be done for all camp recipes after the first 20 – 30 minutes of cooking.

This recipe can be made with any available canned fruits. Nuts and Raisins can be added to round out this easy dessert.

Trail Granola


This could be eaten cold on the trail like gorp or add hot water and powdered milk for a fast easy breakfast.

1 1/2 lb Oats
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Sesame Seeds
1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
1 cup Nuts, chopped
1 cup Raisins
1 cup Coconut, shredded
2 tbsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Corn Oil
2 cups Honey

Mix ingredients together. Spread granola mixture evenly on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours stirring every 15 minutes until golden brown. Put granola in zip lock, add raisins and coconut.

The chopped nuts can be anything you want, Peanuts, Walnuts, Pecans or Almonds, use what is available.
