Sure you think Pancakes are easy, but not as easy and delicious as this French Toast Breakfast. Just skillet fry some frozen Tator Tots and apple chunks and your young campers will be asking for more.

The secret is in the eggs. Allow two whipped eggs per camper, (enough for two pieces of French Toast). For every four eggs add; 1 tsp. sugar, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp. milk, and salt to taste. Use a cast iron skillet or griddle for best results. For the Tator Tots and apples – just cut a peeled apple(s) into bite-size chunks and scramble both around in a skillet until hot.
