I had such a great time on Outdoor Wednesday that I decided to participate in Foodie Friday hosted by Designs by Gollum.
Since I blog about camping at the beach, I'm going to share one my favorite recipes for breakfast over a campfire. This is a hearty meal, guaranteed to get you through a day of beachcombing, surfing, hiking, or boating.
Campfire Skillet Breakfast
• 3 Tbl. olive oil
• 5 cups unpeeled red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
• 1 1/2 cups Vidalia or red onions, chopped
• 1/2 lb. fully cooked smoked turkey sausage, diagonally sliced 1/4-inch thick (Or use any of Aidelle's sausage if available in your area, I love the Smoked Chicken Apple.)
• 2 Tbl. snipped fresh thyme
• 2 tsp. cumin seed, slightly crushed
• Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over hot coals (or stovetop). Swirl your pan so that oil covers the bottom and up the sides a bit. Cook potatoes and onion, uncovered in hot oil for about 12 minutes or so until the potatoes are almost tender, stirring as you go along.
Add the sausage and a little more oil if needed. Cook, stirring often, until the potatoes and onions are tender and nicely browned.
Stir in the thyme, cumin, salt and pepper and cook for another minute.
NOTE: I cut up my potatoes and onions at home, add the oil and pack it all in a ziplock bag. Packed in my ice chest, this will keep for days. This recipe is very versatile, so add garlic, pesto, or whatever spices you prefer.
I serve this with Texas Toast (bread grilled over the fire), fresh fruit and, of course, lots of coffee!
Happy Friday Everyone!
Hope all y'all get to go to the beach!
