Cast Iron Skillet Breakfast Nachos Camping Recipe
Step 1. Prep your veggies.
Camping Flexible Cutting Mats
The good news is your family will be eating veggies for breakfast! The other good news is that it is fun to chop the onion, garlic, tomatoes, cilantro and avocado on these totally adorable Camping Flexible Cutting Mats that are lightweight and can be hung from hooks when not in use … almost like camping art!
Step 2. Melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic.
You are basically making jazzed-up scrambled eggs next. You will start this process by melting the butter then adding the onion and garlic, cooking till softened.
Step 3. Beat eggs and add to onion mixture.
Now you will beat the eggs and then stir them into the skillet with the onion mixture. A nice gentle constant stirring will make beautiful scrambled eggs.
Step 4. Fold in the beans.
Who knew a Cast Iron Skillet Breakfast Nachos Camping Recipe could be packed with so much protein?!? You are now going to add the beans to the scrambled eggs by folding them in gently.
Step 5. Build the nachos and melt the cheese.
In a separate large cast iron skillet you are going to layer the chips, scrambled egg mixture and cheese … melting the cheese with a camp torch (this is the fun part!)

Camp Cooking Tip:
If you have a recipe that requires using an oven broiler to melt cheese or toast a breadcrumb topping, just use a camping torch when you are out in the wild. It’s a fast and fun method for your camp cooking. We also use ours to start our campfires quickly. This torch uses a typical screw-on portable camping stove propane cylinder and has a self-lighting igniter. You will love it!
Step 6. Top and serve.
Once the two layers of nachos have gooey melted cheese, you will top them with tomatoes, cilantro, avocado and sour cream just before serving.

Camp Cast Iron Skillet Breakfast Nachos Recipe Cooking Tips
Onlyfire Universal Propane Tank Refill Adapter- 100% Solid Brass Regulator Valve Accessory for all 1 LB Tank Small Cylinders
One drawback with equipment that uses fuel from small propane cylinders as a fuel source is the potential to run out of fuel before your camping trip is over. That problem is eliminated by using a propane tank refill adapter which easily transfers propane from your large RV propane tank to your small propane cylinders used with your camping stove and torch. We also love the eco-friendliness of reusing and refilling the small cylinder rather than disposing of empty cylinders after a single use. Never done it before? Check out our blog post on How To Refill 1 lb Propane Cylinders, Tanks And “Disposable” Small Camping Propane Bottles.
