For this week’s Friday Food Fight, I’m flinging my breakfast from Hillsborough River State Park campgrounds.
Since we’re tent camping, it’s not 5-star accommodations or dining, but the food is served hot and thanks to Globo Surf, we could select the perfect tent heater to keep our tent cozy and warm.
One of our usual camping breakfast meals are pancakes from the box. *gasp* Shocking, I know, since Iron Chef Allan enjoys his from-scratch pancakes best, but it’s all about convenience and ease when you’re camping and box pancakes fit that bill.
This is the first time we tried Quaker Oats Oatmeal Pancakes and I was pleasantly surprised. The whole grain batter offered a lovely mealy texture and you certainly need a hearty meal when you’re hiking trails, canoeing or in my case, chasing a rambunctious toddler around the campground.
My camping pancakes are always served with a side of Al Fresco Breakfast Chicken Sausage. I’ll wrap a hot off the griddle pancake around the sausage, pig in a blanket style. No forks necessary, just a dish to dip your pig in some syrupy mud.
Pigs in a blanket are the perfect breakfast on a cool camping morning!
