Campfire Biscuits-n-Sausage Gravy

This is my favorite breakfast for those mornings when I've stayed up waaay too late star gazing or solving the world's problems by fire light. :)
I even used a can of biscuits this time instead of making them.

I place the biscuits in an oiled pie pan, place another oiled pan on top as a lid...then wrap the whole thing in foil.



While the disk of biscuits bake I start a skillet of spicy sausage...



I flip and rotate the biscuits several times during the cook. I add flour to the browned sausage...cook for a few minutes.



Then add milk to the sausage gravy, also adjust the salt and pepper if needed.
Scramble some eggs in butter..





The biscuits are ready in about 25 to 30 minutes.... You can check them and bake longer if needed.



When the sausage gravy is thick and bubbly, it's ready.



The hot biscuits topped with sausage gravy, scrambled eggs and fruit.





Definately satisfying and so easy to make when you're half awake. :)

I showed my husband your pie tin method. Now when we're camping he's the one to get up early and start biscuits and coffee for a change. All I have to do is make the gravy.

I could easily eat sausage gravy and biscuits every day and it's an especially good outdoor breakfast - there's just something I really like about the smell of sausage cooking in the open morning air.
