Dreaming of setting up camp...

Image via here
As the weather is finally warming up (I actually wore my sandals out today!), I am dreaming of camping holidays and cooking over an open fire.
Last year when on holiday in Cornwall we had most meals on the beach.  A little barbecue, cooking asparagus spears wrapped in pancetta, corn on the cob and sausages... yum!

This year we are most definitely off camping again, possibly trying to get away abroad.  France maybe, now that would be an adventure!  I cannot wait.  I love the smell of woodsmoke and hearing my kids running wild around the tents.. (maybe my neighbours don't but I do!).

I've been looking at some recipes on-line and this one looks delicious, quick and easy.  I need to   cook  something that my boys will devour with gusto!

Campfire Fried Eggs with Potato & Bacon Hash

serves 4


1lb of potatoes
8 oz of sliced bacon
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil
8 large eggs
3 spring onions, chopped


1. Cook potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water until tender, drain.
2. Cook bacon in a cast-iron skillet over a campfire or on a medium-high heat on a camping stove, turning occasionally until crisp.  Remove bacon, let cool slightly and crumble.
3.  Add potatoes to the skillet, lightly smash using the back of a spoon and cook until just starting to brown.  Season with salt and pepper.  Stir crumbled bacon into the potatoes.  Push the hash to one side of the skillet.
4. Working in batches, and adding oil if needed, crack 2 eggs into skillet, season with salt and pepper and cook until desired.  Stir in the spring onions into the hash.
5. Serve eggs with hash.

  1. Ooh I'm excited about camping too! Did you take your babies when they were little babies? I think we will brave a weekend with the little one perhaps close to home just in case it all goes wrong :) xx

    1. Hi Caroline, Yes we took Charlie on his first camping trip to the Gower in Wales when he was 5 months old. He slept in his moses basket next to us. Bathed in a purple trug and slept through the night every night! Must have been the sea air! It was great. You must do it. xx

    2. ah amazing we definitely will do it I can't wait! Look forward to your camping posts :)

  2. We are planning on France this year. I have been told by a friend that Cool Camping France is a great guide. So excited by the idea of sunshine...
    The campfire meal looks good, a great treat. I would think about taking the potatoes ready cooked - I always get impatient waiting for them to boil on a campfire!

    1. Oh Karen good idea, we have the Cool Camping England guide, I must check out the french one. ANd yes spuds on a campfire do take ages. I might start them off on a camping stove first. xx

  3. YUM!! Looks like the perfect end to a blustery day running around on the beach. We were just talking about camping today...want to do lots this year! xxx

  4. I love holidays in Cornwall, you can't beat it. I've been looking at hiring little pods out, there big enough for two, but I think you may also be able to get family sized ones too. If I go, I'm definitely taking this recipe, sounds brilliant... Thanks for sharing :)
