Although I have a wedding to go to this long weekend, the Victoria Day holiday always makes me start thinking about the cottage. Today’s recipe is inspired by the campfire. We have a full kitchen at our cottage but there’s just something about cooking food in the fire.
When we’re there for the weekend we keep the fire going the entire time. Of course it dies down a bit over night, but those morning embers are PERFECT for cooking. Last year our friends attempted to make a toad in the hole egg sandwich in pie irons.
One thing my father in law likes to do for breakfasts at the cottage is to use leftovers from dinner the night before and repurpose it into a morning dish with eggs. That’s what I did with this recipe. It’s super easy, uses leftovers and can be cooked over morning embers on the fire.
The key to cooking food over the fire is patience. If you’re the kind of person that burns the outside of the marshmallow with the inside not melted at all, take note of my cooking directions for these eggs. I’m using liquid eggs in this recipe because let’s face it, it sucks to pack eggs in a cooler. Or perhaps I’m the only one who’s sacrificed eggs in transportation. I never want to bring a full package, and yet I never buy half packages, and each trip I try to think of new, inventive ways to pack them.
Turkey Burger Hash
Chop up or crumble up the turkey burgers and scoop out the sweet potato from the skin. Combine with egg creations and cook over the fire.
Cooking tips for the campfire:
Make sure that you’re not cooking over direct flame. Find some embers either at the side of the fire pit or in the morning if there’s no flame at all. Stir up the embers to release the heat. Cook your hash in a frying pan or try using an aluminum tray. For each option you’ll want to play around with how close to the heat you want to get your cooking equipment. The further away, the longer it will take to cook. But if you get your dish too close to high heat then you’ll burn it. Use a metal spatula to stir and flip the hash like you’re making scrambled eggs.
This recipe serves 4. Dish out and top with goat’s cheese.
