I do like pancakes in the field myself. I have found the “Kodiak Cakes” brand to be excellent – add water only, it’s all in there. Plus many flavors. most are whole grain and they donate profits to preserve grizzly habitat. I have a venerable Teflon coated frying pan with folding handle, that I have used for years for cooking on a Bleuet or other butane/propane/coleman fuel cookstove or even a small campfire coal bed. Have never had trouble with that pancake mix sticking. Best camp breakfast ever, for carb and protein loading as well as flavor, is a big thick Kodiak pancake smeared with peanut butter then rolled up around a couple of slices of crisp bacon and eaten like a burrito. Cook up the bacon first and the fat will help with assuring release of the pancake from the griddle and add flavor.
Another breakfast tip: get ultra thin-sliced Parma ham, lay slices on a couple of sheets of paper towel, but bunch them up so they are wrinkly and not laying flat, then microwave on high from 1 to 3 minutes (needs experimentation depending on your microwave size and how many pieces of ham you use.) Comes out super crispy and tasty, much lower fat than bacon. Also outstanding rolled up in the pancakes or crumbled into eggs. Cook at home and take along in a baggie.
Penzey’s Spices sells some excellent blends that enhance camp cooking. Two of my favorites are “Sunny Paris” which has dried shallots, ground peppercorn, basil, tarragon, chives, bay leaf and dill – really good in eggs or on fish, chicken or potato dishes. Their Maharaja curry makes any pot of assorted camp goulash or soup into ambrosia. Their ground cinnamon is so fresh and intense you will never buy any other brand. I add it to pancakes sometimes, also coffee and what I call “Sherpa Tea” which is strong British tea (Taylor’s of Harrogate’s Yorkshire tea) with a dollop of butter and that dash of cinnamon – good body warmer on cold mornings. We have a Penzey’s in our town and they are nationwide but they also sell on line.
A pan grilled split bagel with cream cheese and salmon is easy to take camping. I get the individual foil packs of cream cheese and buy the foil pack smoked or peppered salmon (when I can find it). Trader Joe’s sells salmon jerky, also good with cream cheese or crumbled in eggs. A little risky in bear country but if you are in a fishing zone another fish scent around the human campers is not going to change the wildlife attraction situation much, though I try to burn the residue off the packaging before packing it out… Here is one source for shelf-stable smoked salmon and other fish, 4 ounce foil packs that don’t need refrigeration. http://www.alaskacannery.com/pouches.htm
