Mountain Man Breakfast
The Mountain Man Breakfast is a hearty Dutch oven breakfast casserole that is easy to prepare. This is a good recipe to use when teaching youth how to make their first Dutch oven breakfast.
1 lb Ground pork sausage
3 tbs unsalted butter
12 large eggs
1 lb Hashbrowns, cube style
1 small onion, diced
1 small pepper, diced
1 lb Grated cheddar cheese
Pinch of salt and pepper (to taste)
Using a seasoned 14" or deep 12" Dutch oven, brown the pork sausage. Remove sausage and drain fat. Melt the butter in the Dutch oven, add in the hashbrowns, onion and pepper and cook until browned. Spread the sausage over the top of the hashbrowns. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper until well beaten. Evenly pour the egg mixture over the sausage and hasbrowns. Top with cheddar cheese, cover the Dutch Oven and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes or until the eggs have set.
If cooking outdoors, use 28 charcoal briquettes. Place 17 lit briquettes on top and 11 underneath your Dutch oven. You may need more coals in windy or cold weather. Serve with salsa on the side for a Southwest flair!
