Tomato Pepper and Egg Breakfast Skillet

Camping season isn’t over – and this is one easy breakfast to make over a campfire or camp stove. These simple ingredients make this tomato pepper and egg breakfast skillet gourmet in the woods!Tomato and Egg Camp Skillet -

A couple of weekends ago Ben and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary! Somehow a year has passed, already! Note to self – order wedding photos!! Yes, I have no ordered our wedding photos yet. But to celebrate, we wanted to go back to wear allll the magic happened and celebrate in eastern Washington. Camping. Well, we planned on camping. And I planned on cooking. Only one of those things happened. 

It was harvest time around them thur parts – so I grabbed my camera and we drove around the Palouse for a few hours snapping photos and taking it all in. I think Ben really misses being out in the fields working them during this time of year. He grew up doing it, so its hard to part from something as in-”grain”ed in who he is as farming. You just knew a pun had to be thrown in there… Look at who’s blog you’re reading… 

Another one of our adventures besides visiting the farm and visiting the grandparents was to drive up and visit the wedding venue where we got married! We stopped into the fruit farm where we took our first photos, and picked peaches right from the trees. We stopped for a spell and visited our wedding venue and the lovely couple that run the joint and bought an amazing bottle of wine to celebrate and even stopped in at our cupcake maker’s shop to snag a few treats to take back to the family’s house with us. Best part – it was all Ben’s idea!! He might not show that romatic side often – to keep me on my toes, he says – but when that side comes out, I’m a puddle.


Our grand plan of camping didn’t work out as well, planned – and after an encounter on the Mountain, near the farm where we were supposed to camp, that included Huck catching a scent trail and nearly running off leaving us to hear a long, low growl as we left (quickly), I figured I’d let the beasts of the mountain have their territory and I would take one for the team sleep in a real bed and not bother them… Yeah… o.O

Tomato and Egg Camp Skillet - 2

With all this glam-camp food I had ready to prepare – and not a camp stove to do it-  I ended up cooking for the family at home instead. And really, even thought camping sounded like a great idea at the time - I was pretty glad to have a real bathroom all weekend.


This tomato, pepper and egg skillet is great for a crowd using only one skillet and minimizing camp dish doing.  It doesn’t take a lot of prep work or time to make either, so you have more time hiking and relaxing than slaving over a campfire! You will love this high class camping fare.

All week, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite camp cooking ideas and quick tricks to camp cooking so you can be prepped and ready for this Labor Day weekend! Get one last hurrah in before fall starts and the kids are back in school!

    Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary, Megan! So cool that you went and visited your wedding venue as part of your celebration AND…that it was Ben’s idea! (The Big Lug often does the same with little surprises and says the same thing…”to keep me on my goes”, LOL!) Killer-gorgeous skillet breakfast, girl. Hubby and I adore chopped red bell pepper and bacon in our big weekend breakfasts. Tomatoes, too. Beautiful countryside photos in this post. LOVE! Thanks for sharing!

    Gorgeous pictures! I am loving this egg skillet breakfast. My favorite part of camping growing up was always the fun camp food we got to have. This would have been a hit! Now if only I could get my husband to go camping…
