Easy Camping Breakfast Recipe: Bacon and Ham Waffle Bake

6 slices thick cut bacon, chopped into bite sized pieces
1 stick butter, melted (divided)

6 eggs
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 ½ cups heavy cream (divided)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup diced ham
2 (2.75 oz) packets gravy mix
1 cup water

-Cook the bacon until about half to ¾ done. Place on a paper towel and set aside.

-Pour half of the butter in the bottom of a 12-inch skillet or Dutch oven. Tear the waffles in large pieces and place in the bottom of the skillet/Dutch oven to create a single layer. Pour the remaining butter on top of the waffles. Set aside.

-In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, mayonnaise and ½ cup of cream. Salt and pepper, to taste.

-Evenly top the waffles with the bacon and ham. Pour the egg mixture over the waffles.

-In a small bowl mix together the gravy packets, water and remaining 1 cup of heavy cream until smooth. Pour over the waffle casserole.

-If cooking indoors, bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes, or until it springs back to the touch and is lightly browned.

  • I made this for our annual Family Christmas tree cutting weekend, in a 20Qt Dutch oven. I felt like I needed to double the recipe to fit the pan. It was a rainy day here in Central Florida that day so I ended up having to put it on the fish cooker to finish it. It ate VERY well! It fed the small Army I affectionately call my family, (about 13 of us) and we had plenty left over, a great start to our day. Mr. Rollins, Thank you for the recipe.

  • I love the idea, I'm just not too crazy about the processed waffles and gravy I think it could have been done with scratch ingredients with out too much more effort. love you guys thank you for doing what the two of you are doing.

  • I make the basic breakfast casserole in a 9×13 casserole dish with eggs, sausage, cheese and cut up chunks of bread. I bet most know what I'm talking about and there are so many variations. But now I'm going to go get some of those waffles and make my usual casserole and use them instead of bread. Thanks for the idea!

  • Improvement – before pouring the second half of the butter on top of the waffles – add jest a leetle dab 'o maple syrup in with that butter and mix well – ooooweee – even finer 'ole son. Luzianer redneck – RW Frazier

  • What a great recipe! I made this for new years day breakfast with some Texas toast on the side and man it's amazing. Thanks for all the recipes and the good hearted entertainment Kent. A happy new year to you, Shan, and the beagle!

  • This was my first recipe of yours that I tried. We were camping recently in 30 degree weather in Big Bend Ranch State Park. It fed 5 hungry 20ish year olds and my 60 year old butt with a hot, filling and FUN breakfast that made standing around the fire and watching that 12" oven on a cold morning a special time with my kids. Thanks for warming the hearts and bellies. Next time, I'm going to add some salsa to top it off… This IS Texas! 😉

  • Just wanted to thank you for this video and all your videos too, I have learned a lot from you. Also would like to tell you that I had lots of company for Christmas this past weekend and planned to make this for breakfast on Monday morning. So I knew I had to make it a couple of times so I could hopefully have something eatable for the family of 9 Monday morning. First try, took over 3 hours but eatable. Next attempt only took 1 and a half hours and was very good and we new in would be a hit. Then D-day, I got a early start and WOW I nailed it, and had it done in 30 minutes. My stepson was so impressed that he just got himself a new Lodge dutch oven. Thanks for helping My Christmas with my family be more enjoyable.
