Campfire Eggs Rosti with Onion and Fried Potatoes

Ready to enjoy a zesty campfire eggs rosti recipe?

Another delicious breakfast recipe in the long line of outstanding recipes, this quick, easy, and fasst campfire breakfast recipe is my own variation of traditional Swiss rosti. Rosti is a type of fried potato pancake that is more popular over there than French fries.

The beauty of this quick and easy campfire cooking recipe, one of my favorites, by the way, is that it combines the great rosti taste with eggs and onion for a delicious, zesty and and nourishing breakfast.

As an extra bonus, you can add some cooked bacon flakes at the same time you add the cheese for an even zestier flavor.
