First-timers breakfast.

Nothing really to write home about (or type on a forum about), but our first breakfast consisted of the usual bacon, eggs, a blue berry Danish, and coffee.
What is great is I was able to do coffee in our Bialetti espresso maker and I found a small paste container with garlic/ and another with chipotle flavor. That I used in the eggs and it turned out great.
now our seating arrangement was a little to be desired, and clean up could use some fine tuning.
Anyone have clean up secrets they would like to share??
Having a great time and feeling pretty good about or purchase/maiden voyage.
Frank and Cheryl. (and Olivia)!

We are glad to hear that the maiden voyage goes well.

We have been using the precooked bacon for several years now. It negates any cleanup issues.

Pre-cooked bacon (regular or Canadian) and "Trader Joe's" Hollindase makes for a great start for breakfast or any meal!

You may find your meal prep and consumption techniques and utensils differ between dry camping or hookup campgrounds. Dry camping is all about water conservation and propane for heat. At a campground with power it is a bit more relaxed. For example, we make bacon on paper towels in the microwave when electric is available; that simplifies the fat clean up and is super quick to avoid heating the cabin too much in summer (reverse that when it is cold). We use wax coated paper plates on our dining plates so they can be thrown away, too. We also wipe the cooking pans out with paper towels before washing as well as the silverware. Simplicity is the name of the game in the kitchen.

And that's why I do the cooking. Of course I tell Mrs. Camping I cook to give her a break.

Bacon? You guys get bacon?

Wow. lol

but i think i like the paper towel in the microwave approach... is this with the pre-cooked bacon or cooking it all the way?

My favorite part taking the toaster and coffee maker out to the picnic table on cord and powerstrip and enjoying the morning as i make coffee and don't set the smoke alarm off making toast.

One of these days im gonna take the iron frying pan and do breakfast the old style way on the campfire... just because i can....

@Goal15 - we never use the pre-cooked bacon. Wal-Mart has a great microwave tray (little waffle pattern to lift the bacon off the bottom).

Another trick, you can microwave corn on the cob; leave the husk on, place in a baggie (leave it open a smidgen), and cook on high 3.5 minutes per ear! You can do multiples in the gallon bag size.

Same here, precook bacon at home and microwave it when camping. For eggs, I finally bought a really good quality non stick skillet instead of the light weight cheap camping skillet. Now eggs just slide out and clean up is not an issue. I used to cook bacon outside on my Coleman stove, but taking a zip lock bag of pre cooked (Wright's brand) bacon is what we do now. Much faster, not messy and just as good.

Nothing beats ordering fresh Croissants to be delivered to your door for breakfast when Airstreaming in Holland or France.

pre-cooked bacon...sacrilege.

The only thing that will wake the clean-up help is the smell of fresh coffee and bacon cooking.

No pre-cooked bacon in our house or RV.

Get good bacon, cook it until crisp. Period.

Forgot to add. I use a screen that goes over the frying pan and it keeps the grease etc. from getting out of the pan. makes clean up go a lot faster

First-timers breakfast.

It has be a couple of years since I discovered my favorite innovation to preparing breakfast as well as cooking in general when Airstreaming. I had never been a fan of portable LP Gas Grills . . . . that is until I was introduced to the Napoleon Freestyle Infrared Grill. It cooks about three times as quickly as comparably sized grills with LP Gas elements, but it preserves all of the other fun points of grilling. The Grill is in the photo below:



For a portable grill it is very easy to clean, and its optional carrying case helps to make it easy to pack. The carrying case is below:



The case can be machine washed when it becomes soiled and returns to like-new condition.

I also purchased the matching stainless steel griddle to go with the grill just for breakfast preparation:



The grill heats up quickly and I can have breakfast ready for as many as four people in less than 20 minutes and all of the heat, and mess is kept outside of the Airstream. We like our Napoleon Freestyle so well that we are using it three or four times per week when we are at home . . . and it is used very freuently when we are Airstreaming.

Electric Gridle

I purchased a small electric gridle and use it outside on the picnic table. Its is great for pancakes, eggs and canadian bacon(or if you prefer regular bacon or sausage.) Simple one pan clean-up.

Hmmm, obviously Airstreams and bacon go together like PB & J! I love going outside in the morning and cooking bacon on an LP camp stove. However, 90% of the time we have an electric hook-up. Bk Yd Safari just inspired me to get the electric fry pan that I know is in the attic, and take it on the road - thanks!
