Campfire Dishes: Smoky Bean Breakfast

Our great camp cookout continues this week with the Smoky Bean Breakfast. This is real old-world cowboy cookery, with tons of smoky flavours and plenty of protein-rich ingredients to keep you fuelled for whatever the day may bring.

Like always we have picked ingredients that are easy to transport and cook using a simple set of outdoor culinary essentials. Just follow the instructions and then bask in the smoky aroma. If you have a hat and a horse then even better…

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

  • 2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 3 chipolatas
  • 6 small cooking chorizo sausages, halved
  • 3 good-quality smoked hot dog sausages, cut into large chunks
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 250ml carton passata
  • 150g good quality BBQ sauce
  • 400g can of borlotti beans, drained
  • 400g can of haricot beans, drained
  • 4 eggs
  • Toast to serve

KIT

  • Frying pan
  • Chopping board
  • knife
  • Wooden Spoon

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat the oil in a large paella pan and add rosemary for 2 minutes, then scoop it out to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add the chipolatas and push to one side of the pan once browned and add the other sausages. Cook for a few mins. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 8 mins.
  3. Add the passata, BBQ sauce and some seasoning, bring to a simmer and bubble for a few mins.
  4. Create little spaces with a spoon in the beans and crack in the eggs. Cover the pan with foil and cook gently for 10 mins.
  5. Top with the rosemary and serve with buttered toast and mugs of tea.

Neil used to be a bookworm, an "indoor" type if ever there was one. After finishing a PhD he writes short stories about spooky places and odd people. Living in Switzerland, the Canadian Rockies and the north east region of the USA convinced him that there was something to be said for this whole outdoor thing. Now he runs everywhere he can, competing in races most weekends and endlessly planning the next great adventure to some far flung part of the world. Recent trips include Costa Rica, where he tried and failed to surf; Vietnam, where he almost got stuck in an underground tunnel; and back to Canada, where he came face-to-face with a bear. Watch this space for further updates on Neil's global bumblings and the occasional athletic success.
