    Default Breakfast on trail

    Goin' hiking again (hopefully) and I need a quick breakfast for the trail that can be pre-packaged in the time it takes from your answer to midnight... also, the reason I asked is that I'm tired of oatmeal and granola...

    Carnation Instant Breakfast mixed with powered milk. If you want it to double as coffee caffeine fix, add an instant coffee mix you like for a mocha flavor and consider heating it up on cold mornings. Good cold as well.

    I like instant cheese grits with summer sausage thrown in. Cook and eat in a freezer bag.

    Anybody tried making their own bagels? I pack the "flavored" ones occasionally for breakfast; sometimes plain ones for lunch. It occurs to me that one might get creative with add- in goodies and cook up something that carries easily, lasts well, and packs some extra nutrition.

    A hot cereal with everything but oatmeal: mix together beforehand a little cracked wheat, ground flaxmeal, spice(s) of your choice e.g. ginger, cinnamon, nuts, dried fruit. Cook it a few minutes, then add couscous, cover the pot for a few minutes and enjoy!

    Bagels sound good... Sorry, I live in the only part of the north that was relocated south, so I'm not much for grits...

    wake up, what to eat first? i can never figure that out, so's i just skip the first and go right to the second er third. i almost never, at home or trail, eat breakfast food. it's alway lunch er dinner food. much more choices, much more like the food i like. at home, an italian sub, roast beef sandwich with barbecue sauce, leftover chinese food. on the trail, a dinner. fer me that's usually a mary jane's pasta with protein- tuna or chicken. i mean ur hikin, u gotta give ur body some fuel, not just bagels er instant oatmeal!

    I mix grape nuts cereal, powdered milk and dried fruit at home in ziplock bags. Just add water and eat.

    I have actually made bagels at home and the large pretzels. You use a rising dough and you could put anything you want in them. With bagels and pretzels after the second rising you have to boil them that puts the skin on them and then you bake them. But this would not be a bad idea you could put alot more dried fruit or nuts into them.
    If you canít fix it with duct tape or a beer; it ainít worth fixing

    Kashi golean crunch with powdered milk added and then just add water. This cereal has 9 gram of protein in it. And you can eat it like granola if you want.

    Oatmeal with two eggs, wheat bran, and dehydrated apple. Followed by CIB.

    I put the boiling water in the bag, and by the time camp is broken, it is ready to be eaten.

    One time I mixed some Kashi golean crunch with some peanut brittle for my granola. It was the best mix I have ever had.

    They are fun but time consuming to make. Quite tasty though!

    Ok, question about bagels (also, time is until 3:30 tomorrow) If I was boiling 2 cups hot water for hot chocolate on a heiny pot w/ lid, and set a bagel on top, would the bagel get soggy or warm or both? and past that, what's the best way to "toast" a bagel on trail?
