Easy English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich Recipe
A great breakfast is arguably the most important meal while you’re camping. It can help you fuel up for a hike, or you can just indulge in a slow, extended morning at camp. Regardless of whether your day is filled with activity or relaxation, it’s always best to choose simple recipes with plenty of protein to last you through the morning. A simple English muffin sandwich recipe using your Grubcage and GrubStick will transform your relationship with campfire bacon and eggs.
- English muffins
- Your favorite cheese
- Bacon (or your protein of choice)
The GrubCage is a small, square, stainless steel cage that can hold a huge variety of foods, either in appetizer-like morsels or the size of a typical bread slice. Because the “cage” clamps down, hefty portions can fit between its two halves. When a GrubStick is attached, the GrubCage can be extended several feet over a fire or coals. The whole set-up is a vast improvement over old-fashioned metal skewers or the original campfire cooking tool: a stick!
To make the English muffin sandwich recipe, you will need to do some prep at home by cooking some eggs and bacon. Two eggs should be made omelet style. Eggs and bacon can then be stored in a cooler in tinfoil. Once this step is taken care of, you’ll be on your way to a tasty and very efficient breakfast. If you want to forgo some of the prep, you can choose a meat that doesn’t need cooking (like Canadian bacon) but you’ll still need a cooler for storage.
The GrubCage is the perfect size for an English muffin sandwich, so begin by opening its jaws and placing one half of the muffin in the cage, spongy side up.
Layer on top: egg, bacon and a slice of cheddar (or another favorite) cheese, then place your other muffin half on top.
Once you’ve closed the GrubCage, attach your GrubStick handle to extend the egg-bacon-cheese sandwich over the campfire. As the muffin toasts and turns a golden brown, the cheese will melt and the eggs and bacon will warm. This English muffin sandwich recipe is quick—about five minutes over hot fires or coals.
Variations on this breakfast muffin sandwich recipe include substituting ham, Canadian bacon or prosciutto for the bacon, as none of those need pre-cooking. Some folks also like to butter either the inside or outside of the muffin for a little extra decadence. Whatever direction you take it, this recipe is simply delicious, and incredibly fast. It will likely inspire you to use GrubCage for other English muffin sandwich recipes, as they toast nicely over a flame and fit the cage perfectly.
If you’ve never tried GrubCage, this English muffin recipe is one of the best to start with. It can be used with the circular cage, the BurgCage, just as easily. Non-cooks who feel more comfortable with dehydrated meals will find this recipe a good place to start for campfire cooking. The GrubCage and GrubStick are the perfect tools for getting the most out of your campfire, whether you are a chef or just an English muffin lover.
