Dutch Oven Sourdough French Toast

I love breakfast. Especially on a chilly morning camping. There is not much better than getting out of your tent, warming up by the fire and making an ooey gooey breakfast. This Sourdough French Toast that I make in the dutch oven is just that.

The only real prep work with this recipe is that you need to get everything together the night before and then keep the dutch oven and the bag of the toppings in your cooler overnight to let things set. But we love recipes where we aren’t going to spend an hour at the campsite getting a meal ready. We are there to camp and relax, why waste that time making a meal!

There is a really good powdered sugar glaze that goes well, but it is not a mandatory thing if you don’t feel like making it. I originally found this recipe on theironflame.com and was able to adapt to my families likings. The recipe originally made quite a bit so I halved it. I was also so-so on the glaze. It was pretty good, but it didn’t necessarily need it. You could just use syrup.


Dutch Oven Sourdough French Toast
This recipe is downright delicious. It takes some prep the night before, but it’s s-o-o-o-o-o-o-o worth it. If you don’t have sourdough, substitute whatever bread or leftover rolls you have. It will be great.
