While the calendar says otherwise, I’ve decided that it’s officially summer! We’ve had amazing 30 degree weather.

At any given point I am surrounded by the sounds of birds, sprinklers or lawnmowers. Possibly a combination of all. Then there’s the fact that the bulk of our days are now spent outdoors.

Yes, summer is indeed here! Let’s all celebrate with a BBQ!

Yet busy chaotic days and increased temperatures {not complaining about either, it’s just a life fact}, means that I get the cooking blahs quite often.

I don’t want to further heat up the house, so the change in season forces me to cook our favourites in different ways.

In other words, your BBQ is perfect for more than just burgers and steaks!

This BBQ Breakfast Scrambler recipe is one such meal that I’d normally cook in the oven. It’s a favourite dish for us and I didn’t want to not make it despite not wanting to use the oven.

Another beauty of this BBQ Breakfast Scrambler recipe is that you can make it at home on the barbecue, or on the campfire out camping!

We tend to make a lot of brunches when out camping and this recipe hits all food groups and is a one-dish meal. This means less cleanup.

In fact, all the ingredients fit right inside the Foil Pan so it can go wherever your outdoor summer adventures take you.

For eggs I like to choose one of the many liquid egg varieties found at our grocer, easily spotted with it’s new and fancy packaging.

    1. Yes, I would freeze it for sure {thaw before cooking to make sure it cooks evenly}. Actually, I have cooked it before, then froze once cooled, then just reheated to eat. Saved time that way! 🙂

  37. do you think this could be premade and then frozen? Taking an extended camping trip and this looks so good.
