Campfire Recipe: Fancy-ass French Toast

No need to slum it with instant oats when you’re out enjoying nature. You need to fuel your fun and make some meal memories around your morning campfire. This Fancy-ass French toast recipe is easy to make on the campfire, but it will give you all the energy you need for your next adventure.


  • baguette
  • 2 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • salt
  • 4 tbsp. oil
  • maple syrup


Thickly slice your baguette. Make a small incision in each slice to create a delicious little bread envelope. Slice the bananas and insert the slices into your bread envelope.
In a bowl, mix the eggs and a pinch of salt with 2 tablespoons of water. Place your pan on the fire or camp stove and warm to a medium heat. Dip your bread and banana slices in the egg mixture and place into the pan. Fry gently until brown on both sides. Place on a plate, drizzle in maple syrup and serve hot.

Serves 4


The bread doesn’t have to be fresh so this makes a great breakfast for the second day of a loaf of bread.
Got a lot to do today? Ramp up your energy by adding chocolate chips to your banana French toast (yup, that just happened!)
Forego the maple syrup and swap the bananas with strawberry jam and cream cheese for a New York Cheesecake version that will make you the king (or queen) of camping.
