Comfort Breakfast Bake
5-eggs
1/4 cup milk
16oz- Refrigerated Biscuits(Pillsbury Flaky)
4- scallions
1 cup sharp shredded cheese
16oz- cooked sausage

1. Mix eggs and milk in large bowl
2. Cut biscuits into quarters and add to bowl to begin soaking in egg/milk mixture
3. Cook sausage and cut up scallions
4. Add cooked sausage, scallions and cheese to bowl. Mix and pour into dutch oven
5. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes
For a 12 inch dutch oven this works out to be 24 briquettes,10 on bottom 14 on top.

This didn't go over real well with everyone because not all the boys like cabbage. I myself on the other hand love Bubble and Squeak for breakfast so this is a personal indulgence.

Irish Delight
1bag- frozen O'Brien Potatoes
2tbsp-cooking oil
Small head of cabbage chopped
2cans- Corned Beef Hash
8 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat dutch oven using 24 coals
2. Add cooking oil and fry cabbage until wilted and lightly browned
3. Add potatoes and hash, mix in oven
4. Cover, add some coals to lid and bake until potatoes are almost done
5. Make 8 dents in potatoes with a ladle and break eggs into dents one egg per dent
6. Season with salt and pepper
7. Continue to bake at 350°until eggs are done.

Looking good!! I am not a dutch oven chef myself, but so far you have not cooked anything that I wouldn't eat. The corn beef & cabbage was an interesting breakfast, though it might have been a better lunch. (just my insignificant opinion)

Thanks for all you do Jeffro!!

I will be putting my ability to follow instructions to the test soon.
I bought two dutch ovens, a 12 and a 10. I think that there Irish Delight will be one of my first attempts

Here is one of my deer camp favorites. Made from scratch or from packaged ingredients just depending on how much time you have.

Eggs Redneck
At least one biscuit per person (I like to use Pillsbury Grands canned biscuits)
Sausage patties, 2 per person
Eggs, 2 per person
Peppered cream gravy (Homemade or from the convienant packet)

1.Bake the biscuits, fry the sausages, make the gravy
2. Fix the eggs,2 per person, cooked to order
3. Plate up by laying down 1 biscuit divided in half to form 2 rounds. Upon each half is a sausage patty. Upon each sausage patty sits an egg and gravy is ladled over the top.

Serve with a side of hashbrowns followed by a mid morning nap.DBX counts as 3 people, he likes this slop.
