Do you fry the bagel in bacon grease?- because that would officially make you official- officially speaking.

For b-fast, a 390 cal Pro Bar or 360 cal Bobo's Oat Bar works when I want to get up and be hiking in under 20 mins. When on a COLD hike I mix it up more by appreciating something warm on ocassion like some oatmeal with hemp seed, coconut flakes or powder, nuts, and a bit of dried fruit(dried mango, blueberries, and strawberries are delish esppecially with the dried coocnut milk). Doctored up Amaranthe and millet work well for a quick hot b-fast too.

I practically lived on Probars during my Long Trail thru hike last summer. Had one every two hours in between breakfast and dinner.

Bars make me want to puke. We are crossing threads here, but they remind me of rectally produced whey protein shakes after awhile.

See post 6 for shake reference. I do like snickers bars.

10-14-2013, 23:01
I look for the Pro Bars and Bobo's Oat Bars when on sale though as it can be pricey just gnoshing on those bars all the time on a long distance hike. Sorry JustBill to the best of my knowledge either company doesn't make a bacon, butter, and grease version.

In all serious seriousness- one of the reasons I posted the recipe is that you can eat it cold. Just dump it in a Ziploc- wait fifteen or twenty and suck it down. I often eat it cold for lunch. If you double the water, 1 full cup, and let it sit for 25 minutes it gets mushy enough that it turns into a drinkable shake. You have to chew it obviously, but it is quite easy to eat while walking at that consistency.

You'd need to eat more bars than my jaw can comfortably process to find 700 calories for breakfast.

Rasty- you could toss some of these oats in a spice mill (a food snob's way of saying a coffee grinder) and add them to your shake to bulk it up. Snickers clearly transcend the bar category- although Baby Ruth remains the best bar to drop into a public pool when you need more room to swim.

A fried apple pie (Krispy Kream brand) and a hard boiled egg when I section hike. Also, must have a large cup of coffee (with creamer and sugar). Always look forward to breakfast. :)

I would recommend the Logan Bead recipe from sectionhiker.com; It is very good. I eat it for breakfast a lot of mornings even when i am not hiking. It also freezes well.

Oatmeal = Fail

In Yellowstone we brought in a dozen fresh eggs, shredded cheese, bacon bits, salsa, and I can't remember what else. Each one of us cracked two eggs into a zip lock, added in the cheese, bacon bits, etc and then boiled the bag until the eggs were cooked and added in the salsa. That was my best trail breakfast ever.

Just Bill: great looking recipe, thanks for posting here. Like many others here, I was eating Probars on the LT hike. I liked the Oatmeal n' Raisin Probars in the A.M. Another great breakfast no-cook drink are the Starbucks Via Instant Iced Coffees.

Chia Seed Porridge: Soak a few tablespoons of chia seed in a little water or juice, add nuts, fruit, nut butters, sweetner of choice, etc. No cook necessary. Surprisingly filling and LOADS of energy. High concentrations of fat, protein, carbohydrates, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Since a serving is only a few dried tablespoons, a sandwich bagful last weeks or more in the backcountry.

On that subject- Just tried the real medley's bars. A bit sweet, but for $2 for a box of six, they are some of the best bars I've had- with big chunks of fruit in them. Other than added sweetners- they are pretty good.

Chia seed has a couple uses.

First, you can use them to grow hair on any number of clay figurines. Very popular gift item around Christmas.

http://40acresandacubicle.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/chia-obama-2.jpg

Second, chia seeds are now one of hot trendy super foods. I have no opinion as to whether chia seeds should be added to ones diet. However, if you choose to do so I saw a big ole bag of them at Costco for less than $10.

Now I've lost my appetite. Oh well, tomorrow's another day. Prefer steak and eggs for breakfast but that usually only works the first three nights out. After that grits.

The Best Breakfast Ever.
Weasies - Waynesboro Va.

I thot Mountain Meadows Lodge was without question the best breakfast I had on my thru. When I hiked the state of VT after my thru I stayed at The Inn on the Long Trail. That would have been my second favorite spot had I stayed there on my thru. Its a shame those 2 places are so close together.

When I passed through Waynesboro I didn't eat at Weasies as the hotel I stayed at had a free breakfast. However, after finishing the SNP I went back to Waynesboro (a friend met me in a car) for the express purpose of eating there as it was one of "the" places to eat. I was disappointed. I had the AYCE pancakes. Hard to get excited over flour, water, egg, and oil. And margarine and syrup.

Just wanted to point out that we are all different. Not being critical of your choice at all.

Most excellent. Especially liked the sunflower seeds. Putting the oatmeal in a paper lunch bag is a good idea. Of course your going to want to put your day's grub all in a couple of recycled bread bags in case moisture gets inside the pack. Until they get holed they can be re-used umpteen times.
Liked daddytwosticks fried pie, hardboiled egg and coffee also.

Oh go on and give 'em a shot, then you'd have a helpful opinion max! Just Bill suggests oatmeal and everybody is all "ooohs" and "aahhs". I suggest a lightweight, energizing, ancient super food (it's only been around since forever) and the usual WB BS comes out. Hoo boy! This place is a hoot.

Not a whole lot of grits eaters up here in the nor'east. I happen to love them myself! I'm going to try your little mix of ingredients on my next outing. I usually have block or shredded cheddar available for the 1st cpl of days, so I'll use that instead of the Annie's. Just can't eat the powdered stuff for some reason! Thanks for posting it, susiecruise!! Gonna have to check out the chia seed, too!
