2 small potatoes, diced

1 small onion, diced

1 clove garlic, chopped

8 ounces summer sausage, cubed

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.
