Canoe Trip Meals

Canoe Trip Breakfast Ideas

1. Breakfast Sandwiches

Another great choice is breakfast sandwiches. If it's early in the trip, you can bring English muffins. If you want to have this meal later into the trip, you can use wraps, powdered egg and bacon bits or sausage.

Ingredients: wraps or English muffins, powdered eggs, powdered milk, bacon or sausage, ketchup packets, cheese optional: avocado, tomato


Mix powdered eggs and powdered milk at a 6-to-1 ratio and mix with water until thick and runny. Scramble the eggs.

If needed, cook the bacon and toast the english muffins.

Add scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese to english muffin or wrap. Add toppings and ketchup and close.

Optional: Wrap in tin fold and heat over the fire to keep them warm and toasty while you wait for your coffee to brew.

2. Cinnamon Buns

Another classic for a rest day is cinnamon buns. They require a Dutch oven and some prep work, and you'll want to make sure you pack some butter dedicated for this meal because it needs a lot of butter.

Ingredients: baking mix*, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, optional: nuts, raisins, powdered sugar


Add equal parts flour and baking mix into a bowl with a little cinnamon; gradually add water and stir. You want a ball of dough that holds, but you don't want it too sticky.

On a cutting board with a little flour, roll out the dough so it's flat and in an oval.

Spread butter over the surface of the dough, then add a generous amount of brown sugar. Sprinkle cinnamon and nuts / raisins.

Roll it lengthwise so it looks like a tube. Then, slice the tube so you have a bunch of little cylinders.

Butter the inside of the Dutch oven. Be generous! Then put your cinnamon rolls (cylinders) into the Dutch oven. Place on the embers of the fire and wait. They will probably need ~20 minutes, but check regularly.

Once crispy brown, remove and sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
