This is a great camping or campfire recipe. I also make this at home as I had this breakfast at an old time family run restaurant. I couldn't get the recipe but this tastes close and DH said it is great. You can sub in ingredients that you normally would use or follow the recipe. I like the versatility. I have made it several ways now so will list some varied ingredients at the end. This is an easy recipe to make into a 1 person or 10 person recipe. I imagine it could also be made larger but I have yet to do more than 10 guests for breakfast since making this.

I decided to go with my own ingredients and use some left overs from pizza night so into it went red and yellow capsicum/bell peppers, mushroom, smoked salmon and gooey mozzarella, sharp cheddar and aged parmesan pizza cheese mix. Made for a filling and great breakfast, thank you Chef1MOM-Connie, made for the Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #57 October 2011.

We%u2019ll be doing a lot of camping over the next seven months, so I did a %u2018test drive%u2019 on this at home. Wonderful flavours and so versatile. I used colby cheese, green pepper (capsicum) and red onion. Also added several chopped mushrooms. I didn%u2019t have any salsa on hand, so subbed with a spicy tomato chutney. It looks very pretty on the plate and takes no time to make. Thanks for posting.
