Sometimes the messy meals are the ones that taste the best. I am talking chili, stew, gumbo or anything where you throw a mixture of delicious food into one bowl to cook. That is what you have here with the Cowboy Campfire Breakfast.

This recipe is so simple. Over some hot Cowboy Charcoal, you will slowly cook all the ingredients into one dutch oven and then melt cheese on top. This is a hearty morning meal for those that are out camping, hiking, rving or just want a good breakfast. Best part is that you will be able to feed a ton of people with this cook!

My family used to make this when we would camp out in the woods. Nothing smells better than the scent of campfire, coffee and the Cowboy Campfire Breakfast. Now, I am warning you that it can have some spiciness. If you want more spice, then I recommend adding jalapenos! If you are looking for less spice, then swap the tomatoes with peppers to only tomatoes. It will taste just the same! Either way, this is a breakfast for the whole family!
