Easy Breakfast Recipes While on Vacation

Many times while on vacation, travelers prefer dining-out to eat in the condo unit or home that they are renting. No one wants to take on the laborious task of feeding three tired kids, the hung-over father-in-law, and the spouse that wants to hold to a tight vacation itinerary. But what if the task wasn’t laborious?

Here are three quick-and-easy breakfast meals that can be on the table in no time.

-Breakfast Casserole

-What you need: 2 ½ cups Mexican white cheese (shredded) ½ cup chopped bell peppers 18 eggs 5 cups day-old biscuits 1 ½ cups milk 2 cups broken blue tortilla chips

-What you do: Preheat 10-inch Dutch oven on open fire. Meanwhile, soak chips in 1/2 cup of milk. This will be your bottom crust. Soak biscuits with remaining ingredients, add extra milk if needed for a wet consistency. Salt and pepper, to your taste. Remove oven from the fire, put chips in first then add the biscuit mixture. Return Dutch oven to the fire. Be careful when putting coals on top and bottom. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until slightly firm.
