Everyone loves a good camping breakfast. While bouncing around the Plumas National Forest, we decided to experiment with a Campfire Quiche using Spinach, Tomato, Bacon, Cheese. It takes a while to cool, so if you want to eat it for breakfast, we recommend cooking it the night before while you’re cooking everything else for dinner. This is really great for 4 to 6+ people – we were just 2 people, so we still have quiche left that is still being eaten for breakfast (and other snack meals). Anyway, put this together with some coffee in the morning, and you’re ready for a full day!

Lay your crust into the pan, pressing in the edges and pushing out any air. Layer the bottom with the chopped bacon, spinach, half of the cheese and the cherry tomatoes. In the bowl, mix up the 6 eggs, cream and salt + pepper. Once evenly mixed, pour into the crust, over all ingredients. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Put the top on your pan and put it over medium heat fire (not too much flame), about a foot above heat. Cook for about an hour, until it looks pretty set. Let cool for at least 1-2 hours, the longer the better.
