Garden Veggie Scramble with Breakfast Sausage and Baked Eggs

Thus 2 whole photos were taken all trip and then my camera stopped working.

#FAIL #FAIL #FAIL

I think that means I should order a spare battery so this doesn’t happen again. Orrrr I’ll wait until it happens 2 more times and then finally splurge?

The reason I share this terrible, terrible story is because the photos I did get while camping were of our Garden Scramble with Breakfast Sausage. It’s what inspired me to make this recipe in my own kitchen in the first place!

2 weeks ago Blake and I headed to Gooseberry Falls National Park in Northern Minnesota with our good friends Abbie and Jeff and their two little rascals Charlie and Kara. Blake and I are sort of amateur campers; I used to go when I was a kid and so did Blake, but it’s been years since either of us have gone and we really don’t have any gear at all. Thankfully Jeff and Abbie brought the motherload of camping gear, including a sweet camping stove. Which is legitimately the best thing ever.

We put the guys in charge of this particular breakfast. Tasted so much better than it looks :D

Which is part of the reason I kept the eggs whole instead of scrambling. I just haven’t nailed down how to make scrambled eggs look appealing. Baked eggs it is!
