Mountain Man Breakfast – Sausage, Bacon, Potato, Egg & Cheese Casserole

It’s Sunday morning, and you wake up to the sweet smells of sausage, bacon, potatoes, cheese, and eggs cooking away.

Coffee is brewing and breakfast is in the oven becoming more delish by the second.

This mountain man breakfast has been my husband’s favorite for as long as we’ve been married! There’s sooo much flavor all packed into one dish! This recipe is traditionally done while camping, using charcoal briquettes and a real campfire! Although it tastes better that way, doing it in the oven tastes amazing too!

I know you all will love this recipe!

Notes

If you have a larger Dutch oven than what is used here, you will need to use larger quantities of the ingredients in order to have even layers.
