Campfire Crustless Quiche
Easy crustless quiche is the perfect stress-free way to start a full day of adventures! Shake everything together in a bag at home, then just pour into a cast iron skillet set over the fire for a delicious camp breakfast.
- 10 eggs
- 1/4 cup whole milk or cream
- 6 oz. cherry tomatoes halved
- 4 oz. mushrooms sliced
- 2 oz. spinach torn
- 1 T. fresh thyme
- 4 oz. cheddar shredded
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/2 t. red pepper flakes (optional)
- 2 T. butter
- 12" cast iron skillet
- 1 gallon sealable bag
- 12" square foil
- heat-resistant gloves for handling
Add all ingredients except butter to a large sealable bag. Break the egg yolks and shake well to mix.
Set cast iron skillet over hot coals. Melt butter in skillet and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan.
Pour the egg mixture into the hot skillet and cover with foil.
Cook quiche for 3-5 minutes, until top is set. Serve hot.
Campfire cooking works best when the fire has burned down to glowing-hot coals. Some flames are fine - the fire often flares up when you set a skillet over it - but you want to place your skillet a few inches above deep embers, like shown on the right.
Be careful when placing the skillet in the fire and make sure the burning logs will support its weight! Use heavy-duty heat-resistant gloves to take any cookware out of the flames.
