Cowboy Breakfast over the Fire

After a long day of hiking or boating, I love eating scrumptious meals cooked over a fire. My favorite, and oh so easy breakfast, is below. I use frozen steak fries, which makes prep and cooking time much shorter. Don't worry if the fries have defrosted in the cooler by the time you go to cook them. I've opened them up to find them floating in water and it still tasted delicious.

Cowboy Breakfast

1 pound Italian Sausage
1 bag frozen steak fries
Garlic powder, to taste
Cajun seasoning, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
6 Eggs
Anything else in your cooler that sounds good

In a large frying pan, crumble sausage and begin frying over fire or campstove. Once meat has started to brown add in french fries and break apart with a spatula. Mix seasonings in.

Once meat has browned through, crack eggs over top and scramble in. Cook until eggs are cooked through. Move to a lower heat and sprinkle cheese over top. Once cheese has melted, serve warm.
