Mountain Man Breakfast

Last weekend at the Thaksgiving Rally in PA I made a Dutch Oven Mountain Man Breakfast.  I’m still a novice at cooking in a Dutch Oven.  Barb gave me some tips and suggestions to make it better.  What are your suggestions?

Here are the ingredients that I used for my Mountain Man Breakfast.

A dozen Eggs
Splash of milk
A pound of meat.  Bacon or Sausage
A bag-o-potatoes
Vegetables.  Peppers and Onions although this time I didn’t use the onions because Cindy didn’t like them.
A bag-o-cheese

I do this often for work breakfasts in a crock pot.  Cook the meat then add everything together and cook on Low for a few hours.  Doing it in a DO is a bit different and I am open to suggestions.  I added the meat, potatoes and the vegetables together to start.  I think I should have cooked the meat first and then added the potatoes and vegetables.  It took awhile to get the meat to the point I felt it was cooked. Barb suggested removing the bacon after it is done and then doing the potatoes and veggies.  There was some talk over the water content of the potatoes and how to take care of that.  What are your thoughts? 

It took me about a good hour plus to cook this.  We had a nice brunch.  I think if I cooked the bacon first it could be done quicker.

I’ve read several different recipes/instruction sets for the MM breakfast, but no two are alike.  Specifically, I would want to know the detailed steps because some say to cook the meat in the DO separately, then add the ingredients in steps, cooking in between.  Nowhere does anyone list a specific "Cook the meat for 15 minutes or until done, then add the potatoes and cook 25 more minutes" kind of instruction level.

I’ll be watching this thread so I have a better idea of how to make it and it be good.  I’m looking for easy, but I’m looking for complete and detailed instructions.  Thanks for asking Lone Lock.  :thumbup:

When I make a Mountain Man I use bacon and cut it into 3/4 to 1 inch strips. I fry the bacon till crisp in the DO, add the peppers and onions, fry till translucent.  I then pour in a bag of thawed, frozen hash browns, and stir, cooking till the hash browns start to crisp. Scramble your eggs and add. Cover and cook till the eggs are done (20 to 40 min) Pour the cheese over the top and cover till melted. Serve with tortillas and salsa. The frying part is done over a camp stove to eliminate having to use 2 batches of charcoal.
