Here at Khyam we like to make your life a little easier, so here’s 3 of our favourite easy camping recipes for you to try this Spring!


Scrambled Egg Croissants

A camping breakfast doesn’t have to mean grabbing an easy cereal bar and heading on your way. If you’re planning a day of adventures you’re going to need a good breakfast - it’s true what they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

Scrambled eggs are a family favourite, and exceptionally easy to make whilst out camping! They take only 5 minutes to make and hardly any prep time. Here’s what you are going to need:

  • Fresh butter croissants
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g grated cheese
  • A splash of milk
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 pan

The ingredients can be bought before heading out on your trip, keep the milk cold in an ice cooler and your croissants fresh in resealable containers - also make sure not to squash your croissants when packing!

To make this delicious breakfast follow these simple steps:

  1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cheddar, milk and some seasoning.
  2. Pour into a saucepan and heat gently, stirring continuously, until softly scrambled.
  3. Split open croissants and put the scrambled eggs inside.
