More Camp Bacon Biscuits n Gravy




Made my favorite biscuit breakfast while camping recently. These are pretty easy to put together after a late night of lightening bug chasing, star gazing and world problem solving around the campfire. 

I get the fire going in the tractor rim...


Brown some spicy sausage...




Make my biscuits while the sausage browns...


I use regular baking powder biscuits but any recipe would work..


I slather the dough with bacon drippings, sprinkle with scallions and crisp, cooked bacon..





Roll, jelly roll style, then cut..


Finish my sausage gravy. I add flour, cook the flour flavor out, add milk and seasonings...




Plop the biscuits on top of the gravy....


Into the tractor rim... and I shovel a few hot coals on top and let er go...



I rotate the pot every few minutes for even cooking...


Breakfast is ready!







Add fruit to make the meal look healthy and dive in!








Really one of my favorite ways to spend the morning at the lake. A hot meal, nice view and peace and quiet. lol

It has rained a few times here. Things are greening up! Picked my first summer squash from the garden this morning. My new batch of flavored game hens are doing great... I need to take pics of them.
Life's pretty darned good!
Hope everyone is staying healthy and happy. Thanks for stopping by!

As always, looking good!

We've been too busy (haven't taken/made the time) to go camping yet this summer. Gotta do that soon!
