Best river breakfast

Looking for new ideas for a great river breakfast. Mine will be day three so keeping stuff fresh/cool/etc shouldn't be a problem. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

While we're waiting for others to chastise you for not using the search function I'll give you one. Cook a pound each sausage and bacon in a DO. You're rendering, so don't get too crazy with the heat. When the hog meat has surrendered its liquid love dump in a bag of cubed taters with the onions and peppers included (found in the freezer section of the Mega Lo Mart). Salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and cook over slightly higher flame until the mixture gets hot, then lower the flame and slap on the lid. Cook slowly until the taters are tender, stirring occasionally. Once the concoction has nearly attained nirvana crack a dozen eggs over the top of it, sprinkle with shredded cheese, and return the lid and apply coals. It's ready when the eggs are the way you like 'em. Salsa on the side is highly recommended, as are biscuits from another dutchie. Word of caution; this meal will induce an episode of acute lethargy. For that reason it is not recommended for mornings when a timely departure is required.

one of my recent favorites has been biscuits and gravy.

we precook biscuits. cook them about 90% done, then put in a zip lock bag in the cooler. the biscuits stay pretty hard when they are cold, and wont get too messed up in the food cooler for a few days.

precook sausage, and make a roux out of the grease and some butter. the roux also keeps perfectly in the cooler for a few days.

heat up the biscuits in a pot over low heat, melt the roux in another pan, whisk in milk, add some salt and pepper.

biscuit > sausage> hot sauce > gravy

Here's one that is always a favorite on my raft trips. The quantities are calculated based on a group of eight. (And you wouldn't have found this using the forum search.)

bacon and eggs
bisquits and gravy
egg burritos
hash and eggs
steak and eggs
yogurt and fruit
just to name a few

OH did someone say breakfast? Then Bloody Marys for sure
For me it's the predicated on how quick I want to get on the water.

If I'm being lazy or laying over a DO with potatos, eggs, spinach, cheese, bacon, leftover vegies works good, (kinda like like Incoop's) with salsa.
If not, then oatmeal/cereal yougurt, fruit or some quick egg dish works well.

we did douoghnuts with powdered sugar once (but what a mess)

And how can you forget coffee?
more snow = more water

Here is one I shamelessly copied from Edward Abby.

Edward Abby's Bacon, Beans, Green chilies and Beer
Fry 3-4 strips of bacon per person. When almost done, drain grease and top with diced green chilies (1 can per 3-4 people) and Ranch Beans (1 can/2-3 people). Break 2 eggs per person on top and cover. Simmer/poach until eggs are done - soft yolks.

Serve with Tortillas and Cold Beer if its not before 6:30 AM

Pancakes are always nice. Mix, water, syrup...easy hot breakfast- satisfies the sweet tooth. Throw in some eggs and juice, and your golden. Meat is always a nice addition, if you can keep it cold till cookin' time.

When my grandkids are along, Papa has to make French toast. Eggs are Egg Beaters (one small container is enough for 10+ pieces), milk is dry milk, need some Pam to grease the skillet, and a bottle of syrup. I keep bread from squishing in a container made for bread (Bread Buddy). I slap peanut butter on my French toast.
