2BW #9 ~ French Toast

Updated: Mar 25, 2021

I don't know about you, but I can eat breakfast any time of day: breakfast, brunch, or breakfast-for-dinner. If you've got bread, eggs and milk, you've got a meal.

As with Camp Classics, there really isn't a recipe; just remember to bring the ingredients and have your camp pantry items on hand.

2BW #8 - French Toast


  • 2 slices of your favorite hearty bread (can be a bit stale, that's fine!)

  • 1 egg (you can bring eggs-in-a-carton - they travel better than actual eggs. If you DO bring actual eggs, I bring a half-carton, with a rubber band, and keep it in a ziplock in the ice chest so it doesn't get flimsy/soggy)

  • 2/3 - 1 C milk (can be dairy, or coconut or almond milk; can add a little half and half if you've brought it for your coffee)

  • 1 tsp vanilla (optional)

  • Cinnamon from your camp pantry

  • Butter; 1 T for frying, and additional for topping

  • Topping: Honey or Maple or pancake syrup, or peanut butter, jam - whatever your favorite French toast topping may be

  1. Whisk milk, egg and vanilla together in a bowl

  2. In your frying pan on low heat, melt 1 T butter

  3. If having ham, sausage or bacon, start those in a second frying pan on the 2nd burner

  4. Pour your milk egg mixture into one of the flat-bottom pot lids from your nesting pots, or onto a non-paper plate. Place bread in the mixture to soak it up.

  5. Turn bread after a minute for other sides to soak up milk/egg mixture.

  6. Sprinkle first side with cinnamon while second side soaks.

  7. When butter is sizzling, distribute over bottom of pan, and place bread cinnamon side down in it.

  8. Sprinkle cinnamon on the top while the bottom cooks

  9. Watch it pretty closely, campstove heat tends to run hot. Check bottom for browning. When bottom is brown, flip, and cook second side till done.

  10. If you are doing a second batch due to pan size, etc, keep first warm in foil while you cook the second piece.

  11. Plate with any side you fixed if desired, add your topping, some fruit and juice, pour the coffee, and *feast.*

Pictured: Mine got a little brown. It happens (a lot) with the all-or-nothing camp stove temperatures. It is still DARN tasty, regardless (everything tastes better camping!)
