Here's a simple and fun breakfast to make your kids when camping: Eggy Stars. A nice twist on 'eggy bread'.

Eggy Stars Breakfast

If you don't have to rush off, enjoying a warm breakfast when camping is a must - especially if you can warm up with a little campfire 😉

Here's a little twist to eggy bread we made recently to give the kids something different, and it couldn't be simpler to make. Eggy Stars!

Remember to take a cookie-cutter shape with you. You don't want a cutter too small (or one with fiddly bits!).

Cut out shapes from slices of bread.

Whisk up some eggs.

Fry the bread and pour the egg mixture into the hole.

You can cook this in the frying pan over a gas hob. We did this over hot coals in the fire pit and used the up-turned Dutch Oven lid as a hot plate. Sitting around a campfire or hot coals is good for the evening; it's good to warm up on chilly mornings.

Don't forget to fry or toast the cutouts too!

We served it with beans and ketchup.

Enjoy 😉
