When I was a kid, my family went tent camping a lot.  And while the adventure was fun, my favorite parts about it revolved around food- having weenie roasts around the fire, making S'mores and watching my mom cook up breakfast on her Coleman portable stove like a boss.

This morning, on our weekly What's Cookin'? segment, our friend Brooklyn Maple joined us from Kentucky Legend with a recipe that literally took me back to the woods where we used to camp.  This recipe, in fact, is tailor-made for the campfire (you're literally going use the heat of a campfire to cook it) and it will feed a bunch of hungry little campers.

Here's the recipe!


1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup frozen hash browns

1 cup Kentucky Legend Quarter Sliced Ham, diced

12 eggs

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

1 (4.5 oz) can Green Chiles

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

8 (12-inch) flour tortillas


Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add the hash browns and cook for 1 minute, stirring continuously. Add in the Kentucky Legend diced ham. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the hash browns and ham have both browned, about 8-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. Whisk in the taco seasoning. When the hash browns and ham have browned, pour the eggs into the skillet.

Cook, stirring frequently, until the eggs have set. Stir in the green chiles, cheese and cilantro.

Warm the tortillas. Put 1/8 of the egg mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up like a burrito and wrap tightly in foil. Store in a zip top bag in the refrigerator or in a cooler.

Now, here's where the campfire comes in!

When ready to cook, place wrapped burritos in hot coals next to fire. Let the burritos sit in the coals, turning once, until heated through, about 10-15 minutes.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
