Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you can’t eat extravagantly! There are all kinds of easy-to-pack treats you can indulge in like a little pâté and pepper jelly on crackers, or slices of apple with shavings of hard aged artisanal cheese.
For a very simple, yet decadent breakfast, we made “Duo of Eggs”.
This recipe is flexible:
Use whole eggs, egg whites, or egg substitute, as you desire.
For cream, use sour cream, crème fraiche, plain yogurt, or as we did, sour cream with a dash of horseradish blended in. Lemon zest would be nice, too. We brought a small container of the cream, but you may find yourself using sour cream or yogurt in other meals. You can even whisk the eggs with some of the cream!
We used lumpfish caviar which is relatively affordable and comes in a very small container. Salmon roe would be nice, too. If you aren’t a fan of fishy caviar, try Kelp Caviar. It’s a sustainable, Canadian caviar substitute made from seaweed. It’s not nearly as fishy tasting, has zero calories & cholesterol, is high in calcium, and is shelf-stable prior to opening. There are several flavours – the wasabi caviar would be tasty and pretty!
- 2 eggs per person, whisked and scrambled until soft
- 2 Tbsp per person of sour cream, crème fraiche, or plain yogurt
- 1 heaping teaspoon per person of caviar or substitute
