Dutch Oven Breakfast Biscuits

This is the recipe that inspired this article. It is cheap, but filling. It also packs in protein by including eggs, bacon, and any other meat you;d like to include. Furthermore, leftovers can be taken on hikes or excursions if wrapped in foil or placed in a Ziploc.

You will need: 1 tube of biscuits, 4-6 eggs, 2 cups of shredded Cheddar, bacon (however much you want)

  1. First you will oil the bottom and sides of the Dutch oven. Then let the cast iron Dutch oven heat up with the lid covering the top. Start cooking the bacon in a skillet. Cook until the bacon is 2/3 the way cooked. You will want it to be just a little bit soggy because it will be added to the Dutch oven and cooked more.
  2. Now you will line the bottom of the Dutch oven with the biscuits. Don’t worry if they are touching. Next, beat the eggs and pour them over the biscuits. Add the cheese, bacon, and anything else you would like to include.
  3. Place the lid over the Dutch oven. Let cook for 10 minutes and check. If the eggs are still runny or the bacon needs more time, cover it back up and check back in a couple minutes.
  4. Once everything is thoroughly cooked, remove the Dutch oven from the heat and let it cool.
  5. Now enjoy the protein-packed meal and sip on some orange juice or coffee! This can be stored and brought on your outdoor excursions!
