THE NO MESS, NO FUSS CAMPFIRE-COOKED BREKKY!
We’re absolutely on board with the idea of treating yourself to at least a couple of proper square meals per day out in the bush. You’re supposed to be out there enjoying yourself, after all. There’s no need to be living off of baked bean tins and two-minute noodles!
But… the prospect of having to deal with a heap of dirty dishes at the end of a meal around camp is a real drag. It’s enough to bring out the lazy side in the best of us.
Every now and then, however, someone comes up with a meal idea that manages to perfectly marry taste with convenience. Just like this bell-ringer of a brekky option submitted by Kyle Findlay.
Now Kyle assures us he can’t take credit for coming up with the old brekky in a bag. It’s been around for years. But he’s tried it a heap of different ways and assured us it tasted as good as any traditionally prepared version.
He reckons he’d make them at home if his missus would let him.
We gave Kyle’s recipe a crack on an overnight custom vehicle shoot and the crew all scored it a big thumbs up. Down with dirty dishes.
