April fool!! Scouts have great breakfasts, but they probably arenít all heart healthy.
The following recipe is one of my favorites. Itís great on a campout or if youíre having a group over for breakfast. And if you donít have a Dutch oven, you can try cooking it in a regular oven.
12 Slices Canadian Bacon (ham can also be used)
12 Slices Swiss Cheese
1/2 Pt. Cream
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Pre-warm the Dutch oven. The bottom can be lined with foil or you can cook directly in the oven. Cover the bottom of a 12Ē oven with the Canadian bacon. Cover the Canadian bacon with the Swiss Cheese. Add the eggs on top of the cheese, being careful not to break the yolks. Spread the eggs evenly around the oven. Add the cream over the eggs so that just the yolks are exposed. Make sure the cream is distributed evenly. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan on top. Cover and bake for about 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Check occasionally to see how your oven is cooking. Your heart specialist may not want you eating this every campout, but there wonít be leftovers at the end of the meal.
I have another recipe that might be good for breakfast. It came from Mike Kraus and he calls it his award winning Chocolate Pancakes with Fresh Fruit Compote. In addition to being a great recipe, Mike uses both a Dutch oven and an iron skillet. So don't get locked into just one style. You can get Mike's recipe at the link below.
Dutch oven cooking doesnít have to be complicated. C. Michaelís recipe for noodles:
Canned mixed vegetables
Prepare the noodles as directed (or to your personal taste); add chicken; a few minutes later, add the canned vegetables. You can use frozen or fresh vegetables depending on the environment. Cook until vegetables are done.
