campfire meals


Campfire Meals: Easy Breakfast Tacos


  • tortillas
  • eggs
  • potatoes
  • meats of your choice
  • veggies of your choice
  • olive or veggie oil
  • spices


  • campfire
  • disposable grilling pans
  • tongs and oven mitt
  • knife and cutting board
  • cast iron skillet
  • metal spatula
  • aluminum foil


  1. Start your campfire.
  2. While fire is catching, chop or slice potatoes (we used red potatoes). Chopping into bite-sized chunks is better for use in tacos, though slicing normally creates crispier potatoes, great for a side dish.
  3. Dump potatoes into a grilling pan and drizzle oil over them. Sprinkle spices on top.
  4. Cover pan with aluminum foil and carefully shake to distribute oil.
  5. Place covered potatoes over fire.
  6. Next, it’s time for eggs. Pour a little oil into the cast iron skillet and tilt around to distribute over bottom of pan.
  7. Either crack eggs directly into skillet or into a cup (which means you can scramble them, whisk in milk or cheese or veggies, etc. in the cup) and use the spatula to scramble. Campfires cook fast, so stay nearby.
  8. Dump finished eggs into another grilling pan and set aside (or in a cooler area of the campfire so they don’t get overcooked).
  9. For the meats, either cook in the skillet as well or lay directly on the campfire grill.
  10. Warm tortillas over the fire, mix everything together in said tortilla, add cheese or additional toppings.
  11. Enjoy!

Back at our campsite at Canyon Village Campground after a long hike up to Mt. Washburn, there was nothing for it but to make a chill con carne with buffalo meat (they were out of Elk) and to have gluten free/vegan marshmallows inbetween GF graham crackers for desert.

These are the nights we love when being outdoors - there’s something about the smell of a campfire, your hot meal cooking, the psithurism (thanks Fanel) of the tree’s, the feel of your body aching from your hike, the anticipation of sleeping in your tent, the slight concern about bison, bear or elk coming to sniff you out, and the planning of the day ahead.

The campground at Canyon Village was pretty packed though and it made it hard to sleep at night as kids were still running around at 11-12midnight - alone, in a place where grizzly’s and black bears are known to come into camp regularly… what’s wrong with this picture?

I know that may sound like we were old ladies wanting our sleep, but we had big plans to get up at 4am the next morning to head to Lamar Valley to hopefully get some big wildlife viewings in. We knew from our Wolftracker tour last year that this was the place to go to see wolves and often Grizzly’s too, although last year we weren’t that lucky.

Fingers crossed this time would be much much better!

The team:

In front of two tents, we were preparing for next 2 hours hiking to reach the top.

@dominic_damarle kept the campfire on, @cynthiamugi & @sir_tyan were preparing the raw and cooks the meal, and I prepared the tools for the next path to the top. Pic taken by @priyaariopanji while he was preparing the camera.
