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.

We do bacon in the microwave or outside.

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.
