2BW #5 ~ Sausage Hominy Cheese & Eggs

I'm letting you in on a dish that is a camping tradition in my family for generations. I remember my dad making this over the single-burner when I was young; I make it both on my 2-Burner Wonder stove camping, and as a home holiday meal; and my 84-year-old mom makes it ahead, reheating by boiling it in a bag on her hunting trips. This is the taste of my family summer mornings.

Pictured: Sausage, Hominy Cheese and Eggs can be a lovely brunch dish at home, or a terrific camp breakfast, made at the site or in advance and reheated. Throw a cinnamon raisin English muffin on the campfire grill, add some fruit - you are fortified for whatever-you-want, whether that's a hike or birdwatching from your hammock.

This is one of those dishes that you can play it very fast and loose with the ingredient ratios, and it still comes out terrific.

Sausage Hominy Cheese & Eggs Family Tradition


  • 6 pre-cooked pork breakfast sausage links

  • 1 small can hominy

  • Bit of butter for the pan

  • 4 Eggs

  • Salt & Pepper

  • Large handful (~3/4 Cup... or so) of shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Melt the butter over medium heat. Add sausages and brown and heat through, chopping with a spatula into bite sized pieces

  2. Drain can of hominy and add the hominy to the skillet, heat through

  3. Scramble eggs in a bowl, add to skillet

  4. When eggs are semi-setting, toss in the cheddar and continue to cook until eggs are done.

  5. Take off the heat, and you are READY to eat!

Store leftovers in a ziplock next to ice in the ice chest. For SUPER ease at the site, if you have a seal-a-meal type device, you can also make this ahead, seal it into a cooking bag, and freeze ahead or refrigerate and bring on your trip. While your coffee water is boiling, boil a pot of water and add the SHC&E in the boil-in bag, until heated through. Open (watch out for steam) and plate and dive in!

PS - this is great for dinner too. Breakfast for dinner is a GREAT camp thing. :)
