Delicious campfire french toast casserole tastes amazing and can be enjoyed around a campfire or outdoor fire pit!
I know that I've mentioned in past posts the joy that the children bring me in having very, VERY different hobbies from mine. I'm a bonafide city girl, and camping and horses and princesses are things that aren't put on my "top favorites" list.
But I realize that my kids love those things so each year I make sure that they get to enjoy them. And my son every year chooses to go camping.
While the title "campfire" might have you scratching your head as a post for September, September is a FUN camping month. The hot weather has left and the nights cool off a bit making camping in a tent more bearable.
This is also a fun recipe for those of you who have firepits in your backyards. Sunday morning breakfast (or you can even use this as a dessert idea) is a great way to enjoy some friends and family time and enjoy a delicious meal.
Although I don't suggest letting him start your fire for you.
Kids these days. When you take away their electronics...
- 1 loaf cinnamon swirl bread (I used Udi's for me--they have a cinnamon swirl Raisin bread or a cinnamon swirl banana bread that would work--this recipe is all about being EASY--you are camping that's enough work!)
- 3 eggs
- ⅔ cup milk (non dairy can be substituted)
- Blueberries, Pecans, Walnuts, Strawberries, Raspberries
- Powdered sugar
- Heat your coals or start your fire. I HIGHLY do NOT suggest having a 11 year old boy Boy Scout to help with this, but if that's all you have good luck. Hide the lighter fluid. 🙂
- Wrap the loaf in a layer of parchment paper, followed by a layer of foil. If you don't have parchment paper, heavy duty foil will work, just make sure to grease the foil.
- Sprinkle the topping you will be using if desired (you do NOT have to use the fruits or nuts, they are optional).
- Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl, whisking until smooth. Pour over the bread evenly.
- Wrap the foil and parchment paper around the loaf tightly, making sure there are no leaks.
- Place over the campfire or grill on low to medium heat for approximately 30-40 minutes turning every few minutes to ensure even cooking. Remove from heat, and make sure that eggs are cooked.
- Remove from fire and allow to cool for several minutes before serving.
- To serve, mix together some powdered sugar and milk until a glaze forms. Drizzle over the bread
- NOTE: If you get rained out or just LOVE camping like I do, (sarcasm) you can bake this bread in a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
