I’m not going to lie: I am not a natural camper. Don’t get me wrong—I love being outside. I love taking hikes and exploring all of nature’s glory. But at the end of the day? I love my own shower and bed—sans bugs and snakes!
Being the mom of a little boy, I’ve felt somewhat compelled to at least do the tent-in-the-backyard thing. Much to my relief, Sam has been content to play in his tent and then come inside at bedtime. But I’m hearing rumors about sleeping outside this summer. I knew it was coming. I’m thinking that will be an awesome father-son bonding experience!
However, if we’re talking about campfire cooking or grilling, I’m all over that! I love to cook and eat outdoors, which we often do, even in our backyard. Sometimes when we road trip we pack a cooler to grill and picnic at a park. The food just tastes better. One little tip I can pass along is transporting whole eggs in a cooler can be a problem but freeze Burnbrae Farms liquid eggs and they’ll do double-duty, helping to keep things cold until you’re ready to add them to a recipe.
No road trips or overnight camping this week but I did make a southwest scramble on our grill. Simple ingredients and a picnic in our own backyard—delicious in every way! Burnbrae Farms Natureggs are my choice for this scramble. Their fresh, omega rich eggs are a staple in my kitchen; the Burnbrae Simply Egg Whites are great for adding extra nutrition to a morning smoothie and their Hard Boiled Egg Snack Pack is super for a quick protein pick-me-up. You can find all of their products at your local grocery, sporting new packaging.
- 6 Burnbrae Farms Natureggs
- ½ can of corn
- 1 diced bell pepper
- ½ jalapeno diced
- 1/3 cup diced red onions
- 1 cup frozen southern potato hash thawed
- ½ cup quartered cherry tomatoes
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Preheat gas grill to 600 degrees. Turn heat down to medium and place cast iron skillet on grill to preheat.
- Once the pan is hot, drizzle olive oil around pan and add onions, pepper and jalapeno. Saute until onions are translucent and peppers have softened.
- Add potatoes and corn and cook for 4-5 minutes until potatoes start to brown.
- Move vegetables to the outside of the pan, creating a circle in the middle.
- Beat your eggs and add salt and pepper to taste.
- Slowly pour eggs into the middle of the vegetables. Stir every 20-30 seconds until eggs start to scramble, and then stir the vegetables back in and continue cooking.
- When eggs are finished, remove from pan and top with chopped cherry tomatoes, chives and cheese.
- Serve as is, or add hot sauce, or our favorite way: on top of a fresh tortilla!
