    Smile Campground cooking in Kansas City....

    Taking a short vacation from work to get some downtime and hear an author speak...so we dragged the 5th wheel up to K-City...figured it was time for another breakfast on the grill...should have gotten more pics, but I was on a concall for work (yeah, on vacation...that kinda job sometimes), and dealing with the repairman for a few items on the RV that weren't working properly since my last trip 2 years ago.

    Mise en place...obviously, the most important item is in my hand....



    5 slices of some of Pettit Jean Peppered Bacon...some of the finest bacon known to man...though I'm going to have to try that recipe that was posted to the forum recently, 5 eggs, shredded potatoes, tomatoes, and jalepenos.

    Sautee the japs in a little bacon fat first:




    Then add the tomatoes + shredded potatoes:


    Hashbrowns coming along nicely...using the fat rendered from the bacon, which is why I used that pan instead of the griddle.

    Push those to one side and toss on the bacon to re-heat while the gesg cook:



    Then crack open a StrongBow (Hard) Cider and sit down to vacay brekkies. Eating out tonight, but probably more brekkies and hot-smoked steak or tandoori chicken tomorrow!

    Did you buy everything precut - no knife on this trip?

    Ha! Hardly....the sharpening review i posted was from the RV.

    The bacon/potatoes were precut tho....

    Need to get in a habit of slipping the knives into the scene though.

    Love COOKING in the field,(i.e. camping) but not doing knife work. The best way to go is preparing a mise 'en place at home on your nice, wide cutting board and packing the cooler.

    Hax the Cook CLEAVERS RULE!!!

    I've got 3 burners, oven, divided sink, spice grinder, immersion blender, uWave, 2 drawers of cooking tools, le cruset casserole dishes....not exactly roughing it

    doesn't make those eggs/hashbrowns taste any less campfire great though!

    It's my wife's and I pipe-dream to have a nice RV or 5th wheeler. We like to camp and have a 1979 Starcraft pop-up, (family owned and been passed down, now we have it), that's on it's last leg, but works okay for camping.

    I have to say though campfire cooking is just awesome. I don't know what it is about it, but I just feel like everything tastes better when you're outside on a nice day eating campfire cooked food.
