The delicious Mountain Man Dutch Oven breakfast is a great recipe to make Memorial Day weekend! This filling breakfast is cooked in a 12″ Camp Dutch Oven over an outdoor fire. Whether you cook it in your backyard fire pit, or at a campsite, you will have plenty of help eating this breakfast!

Mountain Man Breakfast

2 lbs. sausage

2 lbs. frozen hash brown potatoes

2 cups cheese, grated


8 eggs, beaten with 1/4 cup water

1/4 tsp. onion salt

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Chopped tomatoes, green peppers, or your favorite veggies
Start a fire with 10 BIO BLOCKS 1 – 1 1/2 hours before you plan to eat. BLOCKS can be used, instead of charcoal, to cook any Dutch Oven recipe. Allow time for the fire to burn to hot coals before cooking. Remove approximately half of the coals and set aside in a metal bucket.
Fry and crumble sausage in a 12″ Lodge Camp Dutch Oven, over a full bed of hot coals. Remove cooked sausage and place on paper towels. Using the sausage drippings in the pan, brown potatoes, and spread evenly in bottom of Dutch Oven. Place cooked sausage over potatoes. Pour egg mixture over sausage layer. Sprinkle top with cheese. Place the lid on the Dutch Oven and put the coals previously set aside on top of the lid. Cook for 20 – 25 minutes, until eggs are cooked.

Add additional BIO BLOCKS to reignite the fire when you are done cooking. There’s nothing like sitting around a flaming fire while enjoying a hearty breakfast. The Dutch Oven Mountain Man breakfast is a satisfying recipe that is well worth the time! We have made it on many summer holiday weekends. It could be a new summer tradition for your family too!.

Additional Tips:
1) Remember to store BIO BLOCKS in a dry location. Compressed sawdust blocks and rain are not a good combination!
2) Kindling, or fire starters, are needed to light a BIO BLOCK fire. BIO BLOCKS are a great alternative to firewood, or charcoal, but are not fire starters!
3) If you are heading out to a campground, grab several packs of BIO BLOCKS at your local store. Each pack is 5″ high x 11″ wide x 12″ deep. They are flat and easy to stack in an RV. Taking BIO BLOCKS with you, means never needing to purchase wet, expense wood at your destination!
