As with most of my camping posts, these are low quality photos, but high quality content! And, these make ahead camping breakfast burritos are no different. They are out of this world delicious, but please excuse the lack of good pictures. After (not) sleeping, hello hole in the blowup mattress, being somewhat delirious, and dirty, these were the best pictures I walked away with.
That camping manicure is especially glorious.
We made these make ahead breakfast burritos for our latest camping trip to Cove Resort at Fish Lake. This recipe makes 4 large, adult sized breakfast burritos. Feel free to make them smaller for the munchkins in the group.
They would definitely be delicious not camping. But, wrapped in foil, and then tossed in the embers of a campfire brings them to a whole other level. They get all toasty and golden brown and wow amazing. Since campfire cooking is not an exact science, use your best judgement. One morning we put them on the grate over the fire for about 15 minutes. The next morning we put them directly on the coals for about 10 minutes. Both ways were delicious. Make sure you move them around a little. But, a little black and burnt won’t hurt one bit.Print
