Mountain Man Breakfast

Christy Harvey, Hipcamp Host of Grins Pickin’s Camp Farm, OH, knows a thing or two about fueling up in the morning. Here’s her Mountain Man Breakfast recipe.


1 pound pork sausage
1 small onion, chopped (about ¼ cup)
2 ½ cups frozen hash brown potatoes
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1 ¾ cups milk
1 cup Jiffy or Bisquick baking mix
4 eggs
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese (1 ounce)


Cook sausage and onion in your Dutch oven, stirring frequently until fully cooked. Mix potatoes and 1 cup of cheese to sausage mixture. Beat remaining ingredients except ¼ cup cheese until smooth; pour into sausage mixture. Sprinkle with ¼ cup cheese. Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden brown & knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Add remaining cheese. Bake about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Use 29 briquettes – 19 on top; 10 on the bottom. Note: can bake in regular oven at 400°.
