Paleo Camping! Plus a recipe for Sweet Sausage Frittata
Breakfast: Hard-boiled eggs & bananas.
Lunch: Homemade chicken salad, fresh salami slices, nuts, and dried fruit.
(our co-rafters brought the dried fruit and we indulged!)
Dinner: Butternut Squash & Bacon Smoked Chili (I will post this recipe next week) & salad
This weekend we are leaving for another camping trip with some of my boyfriend's old high school friends. It should be a fun time. With this trip, we have dinners covered by the rest of the crew. I am just packing us breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, I made a Sweet Sausage Frittata! This is packed with protein and some good carbs. It is perfect for a camping weekend when you are going to be hiking, playing games, and running around in the great outdoors. The protein from the eggs and sausage in the frittata will keep you full, and the sweet potato will give you a burst of fast-burning energy for all the activity. It is pretty tasty cold, or you can wrap it in foil and reheat it over a campfire or stove.
Sweet Sausage Frittata
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
1 pound breakfast sausage (casing removed)
1 large sweet potato
sea salt and pepper
coconut oil in a misto sprayer
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel the sweet potato and slice it into thin rounds, Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with coconut oil cooking spray. Arrange the sweet potato in a single layer on the sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and slightly golden.
2. While the potatoes cook, prepare the other ingredients. Finely slice the onion and red bell pepper. Add the breakfast sausage, onion, and bell pepper to a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté for 5-10 minutes, constantly breaking apart the sausage into crumbles. Once the sausage is fully cooked, transfer that mixture to a large bowl.
