Recipes: Cooking with Salami

Try these camp-friendly breakfast recipes using summer sausage and salami. They're delicious ways to add protein to your trail menu--and finish an opened serving of sausage before it begins to spoil.

by: Kristy Holland


Summer Sausage Breakfast Hash

1 tablespoon oil
2 small potatoes, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, chopped
8 ounces summer sausage, cubed
Salt and pepper

AT CAMP Heat oil over medium heat, add potatoes and onion. Pan fry for 10 to 15 minutes, until browned and soft. Stir in garlic and sausage and keep over heat until sausage is warmed through. Divide onto plates, and add salt and pepper to taste. (Serves two)


Salami Breakfast Fritatta

1 teaspoon oil (optional)
1/4 cup salami, chopped
1 small onion, diced
4 eggs (or equivalent powdered egg mix and water)
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, finely chopped
Salt and pepper

AT CAMP Scramble eggs (or prepare powdered eggs) in a bowl, set aside. Heat oil over medium heat, add salami and onions. Heat for 5 to 10 minutes, until onions are soft. Stir in eggs, reduce heat, and cover for 5 minutes--move the pan occasionally to ensure that eggs aren't burning. Sprinkle cheese on top of the egg mixture, cover and continue cooking until cheese is melted and egg are firm, about 5 minutes.
